Munib was a former senior commander of Hezb-e-Islami, one of the so-called "mujahedeen": armed groups that fought Soviet troops in the 1980s. The group, founded by former mujhaideen commander Gulbuddin Hekmetyar, is now seen as the second largest anti-government group in Afghanistan. Munib left the group before Karzai took power and had never taken up arms against the current government.
