Fact-Check: Taliban raid the house of former Afghan Foreign Minister Salahuddin Rabbani and recover alcohol

In the last 24 hours, video of a Taliban raid is going viral on social media platforms such as Twitter. The video shows Talibani raiders in a compound somewhere where they have found numerous bottles of liquor.

The users have claimed that this raid was conducted in the house of former Afghan Foreign Minister Salahuddin Rabbani. As per the religion of Islam, alcohol is strictly prohibited, so this came as a shock to many people.
