The family of Khasha Zuwan Kandahari, a famous comedian in the southern province of Kandahar who was killed by the Taliban, in an interview with TOLOnews said that Khasha was not a member of the Afghan police as the Taliban claimed.
Aziza, Khasha’s wife, said that the Taliban entered their house and ignored even the scream of his small daughter to spare his life.
She said that the Taliban killed Khasha only two hours after his arrest.
Khasha’s wife is now responsible for their six children.
She said the family does not have 2,000 Afs to pay the rent for the house.
“The children say 'we want to see our father,' they were pushed back by (the Taliban),” said Aziza.
“What can I say to the Taliban? May God punish them,” said Aziza.
“I asked my father, 'what you did that the Taliban are here for you?' and he said: 'I have done nothing,' said Wakil Ahmad, Khasha’s son.
“My father was trying to bring a smile to the face of the people, I was devastated when I saw the killing of my father,” said Noor Ahmad, Khasha’s son.
Previously the Taliban spokesman told TOLOnews that Khasha Zuwan was a member of the Afghan police and that the comedian had insulted the Taliban.
The Taliban spokesman said that the group will investigate the way Khasha was murdered.
Khasha’s family has denied he had any links to the police. His family said that Khasha was performing for the security forces to earn money.
