A question that has been floating around lately is “did the Afghanistan government purposely hand over the country to the Taliban?”.
At first anyone that asked this question was looked at with wild eyes but now the question might not sound too crazy because a video has now surfaced that shows the Afghanistan President’s brother happily joining the Taliban.
Ashraf Ghani’s was the President of Afghanistan who fled the country on a private jet when the Taliban took control over Kabul and his brother who has allegedly pledged his allegiance to the Taliban, name is Hashmat Ghani Ahmadzai.
One abandoned his country and the other joined the side of the enemy with ease.
What’s really going down in Afghanistan?
Here’s a video of the Afghanistan’s president embracing the Taliban:

You won’t see this video on the mainstream news but some Indian outlets are covering the story and even managed to get an interview with Hashmat Ghani Ahmadzai.

APB Live didn’t stay silent and had this to say:
According to media reports, Former Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani’s brother Hashmat Ghani Ahmadzai has joined the Taliban and announced his support for the group.
This comes after Ashraf Ghani, who has taken refuge in the UAE, was reported to be in talks to return to Afghanistan as he denied the allegation that he left Kabul with suitcases full of cash.
The fresh reports on Saturday state that Hashmat Ghani Ahmadzai, chief of the Grand Council of Kuchis, announced his support for the Taliban in the presence of leader Khalil-ur-Rehman and religious scholar Mufti Mahmood Zakir.
A purported video of the meeting has also surfaced on social media.

Zee News got the scoop too:
Amid reports of deepening political crisis in Afghanistan, Hashmat Ghani brother of ousted President Ashraf Ghani, said that the people need to accept Taliban’s takeover. Ghani said that the new order in Kabul was a necessity “for the people of Afghanistan” as the foreign forces are just a few days away from their final withdrawal, he said in a television interview.
Ghani is the grand chieftain of Afghanistan’s nomadic Kochi population, has reportedly been holding meets with Taliban leaders. He has batted for the formation of an inclusive government and agreed to recognise the transition of power as a signal to influential political and cultural figures.
Even though his brother, Asghraf Ghani fled the war-torn country on August 15, Hashmat said he had never intended to leave the country.
The way the Afghanistan government folded so quickly makes it appear as if there was a covert operation going on behind the scenes.
