Khaki Safed Khak-e-Safid is a district in Farah Province, Afghanistan. Its population, which is almost entirely Pashtun with a few Tajiks, was estimated at 43,000 in October 2004. The main village, Khaki Safed (also called Alagadari), is situated in the central part of the district. To the north the neighbouring district is Shindand, Herat Province.

The district accounts for almost half of the total security incidents recorded in the province in recent times (2012). Although not as vast as other districts, nor as strategically located, it has experienced trouble since an early stage of the current war and at an increasing level. This can be explained partially  because of its border with historically troublesome Shindand. The Taleban shadow governor for Khak-e Safed is indeed said to be Mulla Akhtar, a former deputy of Amanullah, the Shindand Taleban strongman killed in 2006 in the context of a drawn out political feud.The most feared Taleban commander active in Khak-e Safed is  Mulla Zakir. He is a younger and obscure character and has become notorious for mass kidnappings, torture and – often -brutal executions he has inflicted on civilians somehow connected to the government or simply uncooperative.
