Mullahs Dadullahs death wont pose problems for Talibans jihad

Taliban supreme leader Mullah Mohammed Omar has vowed to carry on the fight against US and NATO soldiers in Afghanistan, despite the killing of Mullah Dadullah, the groups top field commander, a top militia official has said.

Kabul, May 15 : Taliban supreme leader Mullah Mohammed Omar has vowed to carry on the fight against US and NATO soldiers in Afghanistan, despite the killing of Mullah Dadullah, the group's top field commander, a top militia official has said.

Taliban commander Qari Yousef Ahmadi said Mullah Omar and other Taliban leaders have passed condolences to the family of Mullah Dadullah, the supreme commander of all fighting forces in Afghanistan, adding, "his death won't create problems for the Taliban's jihad".

The one legged Mullah Dadullah, 40, who led a series of suicide bombings and beheadings, died of gunshot wounds after a US-led operation over the weekend in the southern Helmand province.

Mullah Dadullah had a penchant for beheading captives and would deliver sermons and distribute 'tickets to heaven' vouchers for volunteer suicide bombers with equal ease. He used innovative ways to indoctrinate young minds to accept martyrdom for the sake of jihad.

He was also one of the few Taliban leaders who would give interviews, even to foreign journalists, and allow himself to be photographed.

Ahmadi said Mullah Omar and his council of top Taliban leaders have also decided against naming an immediate replacement for Mullah Dadullah, who was acting as the overall commander of the Taliban's military wing in Afghanistan and the mountainous and porous border region with Pakistan.

"Mullah Dadullah was the commander of all the fighting groups. Now all of the mujahedeen will carry on his same type of jihad. They will carry out attacks just as Mullah Dadullah did in his life," Ahmadi quoted Omar as saying.

However, there are reports that the Taliban leadership council, led by Mullah Omar, has appointed Mullah Dadullah's younger brother, Mullah Bakht Mohammad to take his place.

Ahmadi further said Mullah Omar had requested the Afghan government to return Mullah Dadullah's body to his relatives for burial, warning, otherwise, "the consequences will be very bad".
