A video of former Afghan Vice President, Amrullah Saleh, crying has gone viral on social media. Netizens have been guessing the reason behind Saleh’s crying in the video.

Some have suggested that he is crying over his lost money and gold others asserted that he is probably crying over the alleged killing of his brother. However, social media users also believe that he is faking his tears to respond to the backlash after the Taliban recovered a huge amount of gold and money from his home a few days ago. Hence, to counter the shame and criticism, Saleh is probably feigning his tears.

Taliban have claimed to recover gold and money worth $6.5 million from the house of former Vice President of Afghanistan, Amrullah Saleh.

Video of the Taliban stacking gold bricks and money into bags has been making rounds on social media. The video has garnered massive attention on social media as netizens slam Saleh for allegedly looting the public money.

Indian analyst, Ashok Swain, also commented on the issue. In a tweet, he said that both former President Ashraf Ghani and Amrullah Saleh had fled Afghanistan with $169 million.

“President Ashraf Ghani had fled Afghanistan with $169 million. His Vice President, Amrullah Saleh had so much that he even left $6.5 million in cash & gold bricks at home before fleeing. These are the people ruling a country for the US, whose 90% population live below $2 a day,” said Ashok Swain on Twitter.

Social media users asserted that unchecked corruption and money laundering caused the fall of the Afghan government.
