However, according to a source from the Tajik government "Mahdi Arsalon" is a member of the Afghan Taliban, not the leader of Jamaat Ansarullah.

Mahdi Arsalon is actually Muhammad Sharipov, a Tajik native of Nurobod district - and a member of the "Talbon Juma" unit consisting of about 60 Taliban fighters based in Nusay district, Badakhshan province of Afghanistan.

The source adds that "Mahdi Arsalon" is also not the leader of "Talbon Juma" but another Tajikistani named "Salmon".

In addition, several commanders and soldiers of this unit - including "Mahdi Arsalon" - are currently ill.

"The news that is now being published by the media - whether intentionally or unintentionally - is causing panic and exaggeration," the source concluded.

The exaggeration of Jamaat Ansarullah's message was most likely a propaganda move intended to intimidate the Tajik public.

This comes at a time when the Taliban is increasing pressure on Dushanbe over its support of the Afghan insurgents.

Tensions between the Taliban and Tajikistan increased after the radical Islamic group increased its forces in the north and especially the presence of Tajik terrorist fighters in Badakhshan Province.
