Khalid Farooq Khalid Farouq is an Afghan parliamentarian from Paktika Province, and leader of Hezb-e-Islami. Khalid Farooqi he is well known freedom fighter against soviet invasion, he started his peaceful struggle for Islamic government against sardar daud during his student life but later when Afghanistan fell under communist rule in 1975 he migrated to Pakistan and started jihad against that regime and he continued his jihad against Russia until 1989. He was the Commander of Hizb e Islami (Hekmatyar) in Paktika province .
Khailid Farooq (Paktika) said in Wolesi Jirga, “It is the reality that the private companies are acting arbitrarily.  There is some evidence that at times the [private security] convoy staff have abandoned their vehicles and then informed the Taliban to set them on fire, so the secret may not be disclosed. They are smuggling expensive stones and other
things.  So, according to my point of view, if the Ministry of Interior needs them, these companies should come under the Ministry’s control and the Ministry should be
accountable accordingly.” (2009)
Gulbadin Hekmatyar visited Kabul and held talks with members of the breakaway faction led by Abdul Hadi Arghandiwal. Mudir Mohammad Rassoul who led the delegation met with Waheedullah Sabawon, Khalid Farooq and other members of Arghandiwal’s party to reach a consensus on a joint Candidate for the 2013/2014 Presidential Election.(20130414)
