History and Biodata

3. Biodata
Sayed Muhammad Akbari split from the Islamic Unity Party (Hezb-e Wahdat) in the early 90s, and started his own faction. After the appearance of the Taliban he joined forces with Khalili's faction, and fought against the Taliban. When Bamiyan fell to the Taliban in mid 1998, Akbari surrendered to the Taliban and proclaimed his loyalty to them. After the Americans decided to help the United Front (UNIFSA) remove the Taliban from power, Akbari switched sides again.
