Miralam Khan Mirallam Khan Mir Alam Khan: After having been occupied by the Taleban in 1997, Kunduz remained their last stronghold in the north in late 2001, during the US/Northern Alliance campaign to remove the Taleban from power. The city was then controlled mainly by Jamiati strongmen, the foremost being Amir Mir Alam, the commander of the 54th division, part of the 6th military corps of the army of the Northern-Alliance-led Islamic State of Afghanistan. Later on, it came under the process of Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR), a programme designed to disband the civil war militias, which ran from 2003 to 2006. Although the 54th division was officially disarmed, the process was rather nominal. Local commanders like Mir Alam were protected by senior Jehadi leaders and power holders in the central government and were able to keep many of their loyalists armed.
Mir Alam Khan is former mujahedin commander. He was a member of Jamiat-e-Islami.
Now he is the Head of a Militia, who has liberated a number of villages in this Northern Afghan province of Kunduz from the radical Islamic Taleban. Many of the ‘new’ militia leaders are old mujahedin commanders who were supposed to be disarmed by the post-2001 DDR program but seem to have been able to keep weapons anyway. Miralam Khan says ‚ that he has nothing to do with militias. He says he is as a “very normal official of the Ministry of Interior.
In case of civil war after the western troops withdrawal it is said, that Mir Alam will take Kunduz. (20120720).
Wolesi Jirga MPs accused two high ranking government authorities of involvement in a recent violent incident in Kunduz. MPs said that these authorities had misuses tribal issues for their political benefit and had distributed weapons to locals under the guise of arming local police. They said that Commander, Mir Alam, who belongs to Jamiat-e Islami party and who is associated with the First Vice President and former Interior Minister, was behind the civilian killings in Kunduz. They rejected claims that local police were behind the incident.(20120904)
In late June 2014, Mir Alam said he was in an “emergency mode”, ready to mobilise his network of commanders and militias if he should be called upon by Abdullah to “reject the results of the Presidential Election 2014.(20140620)
