3. Biodata of Gen. Bismillah Khan Mohammadi:
Karzai decided to remove Bismillah Khan as Army chief over fears that he was packing the middle ranks of the Afghan officer corps with fellow Jamiat officers who might be more loyal to him than to the Afghan state. This was not a new concern, but it was possibly an urgent one. According to a survey conducted by an international organization in 2008, roughly seventy per cent of the colonels and generals in the Afghan Army appeared to be loyal to Khan.(20120720)
Since moving to the Ministry of Interior, Bismillah Khan (B.K.) reportedly has continued his covert policy of promoting his allies. Among other measures, B.K. has tried to shift more police resources to the north, where the minorities predominate, and put Jamiat members in key positions. B.K. began his efforts as soon as he arrived at his new job.(20120720)
Bismillah Khan Muhammadi's intervention in "Kabul siege" on 14. Sept 2011 may have led to British and Afghan casualties, say Isaf officials. Members of British and Afghan special forces were seriously injured during the "Kabul siege" after Afghanistan's interior minister barged onto the scene at 3am and ordered the "cowards" to rush the final assault. A shocked official from Nato's International Security Assistance Force (Isaf) said that by bypassing the established chain of command Muhammadi sent the mission into disarray, spoiling what had until that point been a painstaking and careful effort by Afghan forces.
Bismullah Khan Mohammadi has survived a assassination attempt in which a bomber tried but failed to blow himself up near the minister's convoy in northern Afghanistan. The incident took place in the Sayed Khail district of Parwan province on 20111213 when Mohammadi was visiting the region, said Parwan governor Abdul Basir Salangi.
Defense Minister Abdul Rahim Wardak and Interior Minister Bismullah Mohammadi were voted out of office after Wolesi Jirga criticized them for failing to bring security to the country and protect top officials. They also accused the ministers of corruption.(20120804). President Hamid Karzai accepted on 20120805 a vote by the country's parliament to dismiss his two top security ministers, but ordered both to remain in their jobs pending replacement.
Bismillah Mohammadi was approved as Minister of Defence by parliament. (20120915)
A Report said that Mohammadi supports a local commander in Badakhshan who is engaged in illegal extraction of lapis lazuli and also that Mohammadi himself has a hand in the lapis trade. Bismillah Mohammadi is said to have close ties with commander Abdul Malik, who has control over mines in Kiran Manjan district in Badakhshan. But former defense minister Bismillah Mohammadi rejected the allegations lodged against him.(20160607)
