New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan: "Response Regarding Rumors Published by 'The Daily Beast'"

A couple of days earlier, a western newspaper ‘The Daily Beast’ published a fabricated and unfounded report in which it stated that may Allah forbid, that the esteemed Amir-ul-Mumineen (Commander of Faithful) has either died or is affected by some illness.
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan strongly and categorically rejects these repeated rumors and propaganda attempts of the enemy and believes it to be from another one of their failed efforts. Such irresponsible talks and rumors will never negatively effect the morale of the Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate and the muslim Afghan nation as is hoped by the enemy.
The esteemed Amir ul Muminee, with help of Almighty Allah and backing of his Momin nation, has been able to wage a courageous and successful Jihad against half a million soldiers of 49 invading nation and their puppets for the past eleven years. So naturally, the flailing enemy in going to exert even more efforts to raise the spirit of its morale-lacking troops and disappointed war generals but the Islamic Emirate wants to comfort its Mujahideen and nation and tells them to not worry about at all about the esteemed Amir-ul-Mumineen; All praise are due to Allah, he is in living freely and is in good health and regularly issues verbal and written orders to the officials of Islamic Emirate.
We believe that publishing such fabrications will only further damage the reputation of those controlled media outlets which repeatedly spread such baseless rumors and white lies and will only raise more questions about their partiality and freedom.
