The death of Danish Siddiqui, the late prize-winning photojournalist, who was killed in Afghanistan on July 16, has brought a new turn to his sad end.
Michael Rubin in an opinion piece in Washington Examiner, an American Magazine, has revealed that the late Indian photographer was brutally tortured to death by the Taliban. He is a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.
The team with which he has travelling got split as it came under attack when it was within a one-third mile of the custom post.
Danish Siddiqui had taken refuge at a local mosque after being hit by shrapnel and where he received the first aid. Knowing this, the Taliban attacked the Mosque, killing the commander of the Afghan force who was trying to rescue Danish.
The Taliban executed Danish Siddiqui after examining his identity with others. His body was riddled with bullets.
It is known that the Taliban militated his corpse after hunting him down. The media across the world had portrayed his death as collateral damage of an anti-Taliban operation, which indeed was not the case.
Siddiqui was working with the news agency Reuters and was tasked with covering the military operations of the Afghan Army in Afghanistan. Afghan Forces permitted him to travel with them to cover their operation in the Spin – Boldak region, anticipating their victory over the Taliban.
The tragic fate was deliberately overlooked to whitewash the crimes of the Taliban by the Media and the Biden administration.
