qatali_wahidSayed Wahid Qatali, a Herat Provincial Council (2009) Member and scion of one of Heart city's richest families. He is the Head of Arya Security Company. (20120312) Qatali is close to Ismael Khan. Sayed Wahid Qattali rented a house for $1,500 a month, built a studio and this month began Herat’s newest television station, Asar, or Time, which he describes as pro-democratic. He also started a radio station focused solely on women and their issues. (20121119) Sayed Wahid Qetali is a member of the Herat's Mujahidin Council (20120426)
Sayed Wahid Qatali comes from a very prominent family of former mujahedin and long-term Ismail Khan’s associates. His brother runs a security company which, alone, has apparently managed to retain contracts on the road to Shindand in face of the deployment of the Afghan Public Protection Force and the dissolution of private companies. His father is the founder of the Museum of Jihad in Herat where Ismail Khan’s collection of war relics is on display.
Wahid Qatali is young and educated and apparently independently-minded: in 2012, he ran for the Provincial Council chair against Faizzada and against Ismail Khan’s better advice. One year later, when Ismail Khan switched his support from Faizzada to Qatali, he apparently had troubles in convincing Qatali to fall in line and participate again in the election. At any rate, the strong ties of his family with Ismail Khan can hardly be denied.

Gen. (retd.) Sayed Abdel Wahab Qattali, is the founder of the People's Museum, or Manzar-e Jahad, in Afghanistan's western Herat city Qattali was himself a Mujahidin fighter in Herat and at age 19 joined the legion of mutinous ethnic Tajik Afghan-army- commander-turned-militia-leader Ismail Khan, who recaptured Herat after the Soviet Union's defeat, becoming its governor. Qattali defends Khan's record. (20100426)
