Notorious “Butcher of Kabul” warlord Gulbuddin Hekmatyar pardoned by the Afghan government

Notorious “Butcher of Kabul” warlord Gulbuddin Hekmatyar pardoned by the Afghan government | Mic – Hekmatyar’s militant organization, Hezb-i-Islami Gulbuddin, will be legitimized as a political party under the terms of the new deal. However, Hekmatyar has formerly been classified as a terrorist by the United States and his network a terrorist organization by the United Nations. The recent peace deal puts pressure on the Afghan government to declassify Hezb-i-Islami Gulbuddin’s terrorist organization status. Notwithstanding, the United Nations Assistance Mission to Afghanistan said it was “encouraged” by the agreement in a statement released Thursday.
