Rug Notes Index - Q
Qadir, Hajji Abdul.
  • Hajji Abdul Qadir was a governor of Nangahar Province (Jalalabad) from 1992 to 1996. During that time he was a willing host to Osama Bin Laden and a longtime Khalis ally.
  • The Eastern Shura in Jalalabad has named Hajji Abdul Qadir as Governor 11/18/2001.
    Qadir is Pashtun but was allied with the United Front.
  • Haji Abdul Qadir was gunned down Saturday July 6th 2002, his son-in-law was driving away from the gates of a government ministry building in Kabul when they were both killed in an ambush. He was buried the next day by his brother Abdul Haq, in Jalalabad the capital of Nangarhar province.
  • Karzai and the US want to paint this as a terrorist act but that is a little unlikely. Odds are that Qadir's killer are part of the Government. They are trying to say that Karzai is hurt by this but it actually weakens former President Burhanuddin Rabbani since Qadir was one of Rabbani's key Pashtun allies. So rather than outside terrorists trying to hurt Karzai it is a Pashtun power play to weaken the Northern alliance.
  • Key questions to ask. Where were the bodyguards and who benefits by his death?
  • Longtime foes revive struggles for power
