In an exclusive interview with the Mirror at a secret hideaway in the Taliban's stronghold between Pakistan and Afghanistan, Taliban commander Qari Nasrullah, adamantly said that the Taliban will once again rule Afghanistan with an iron fist and return to the dark days of strict Sharia rule once Nato troops quit.
He also told how the Taliban vowed to again run Afghanistan after Nato leaves in 2015.
This meant a return to barbarity that includes public executions for infidelity, beheadings and punishment beatings for disobeying a twisted version of the Islamic law.
Nasrullah, along with thousands of other Taliban has waged war against British and other Nato forces for more than a decade.
Nasrullah's aides called him 'respected leader', though he claimed he was a mere 'Mujahid' or holy warrior.
Nasrullah has fought with the Taliban for many years and is a respected member of its "provincial Shura" - or council network for Kunar Province, north east Afghanistan.
From his base in Bajaur, just over the border, he recruits fighters and smuggles wounded rebels into Pakistan.
As our interview draws to a close, Nasrullah, now undisguised without his scarf, ordered his man to tell me something.
He also called on the interviewer to become Muslim.
