Questioning the Taliban's claim regarding the killing of Ziauddin, a former acting leader of #ISKP, @TajudenSoroush wrote that according to ex-government officials, he was actually killed on 15 August 2021, while escaping from a prison in Kabul City.
I am going to explain more...
The TB claimed killing of ZIAUDDIN, but the name of the former interim leader of #ISKP who was killed during a prison break in Kabul was ZIAULHAQ alias Abu Umar Khorasani.
The story of his killing was published in the 6th issue of the ISKP's Voice of Khorasan magazine, in Pashto.

Beside the usual propaganda against the Taliban& Arab regimes, the latest issue of the #ISKP's Voice of Khorasan magazine in Arabic, include a long article about the #UN & other #NGOs operating in #AFG.
Pro-government PAK religious scholars also condemned by ISKP in the magazine.
The article named "the most famous" non governmental organizations currently operating in Afghanistan under the Taliban regime as "CARE International, UNICEF, ICRC, NRC, AKDN, Save the Children..." adding that a big compound of the UN located n the Paktiakot area of Kabul City... "the evidence of the maliciousness and heresy of the Taliban and the cooperation of this misguided group with the infidels."
The last paragraph of the article is calling on Afghans to stay away from NGOs& encourage the youths to join the ISKP and fight against the Taliban.
