Viral News Desk: Fearing the Taliban's bloody agenda in Afghanistan, former Afghan minister Syed Ahmed Shah Sadat had left the country years ago. Sadat, who was Communications Minister in Afghanistan, has now taken refuge in Leipzig city of Germany where he is working as a food delivery guy.

As per a report in the Leipziger Volkszeitung newspaper, former Afghan minister Syed Ahmad Sadat was currently working as a food delivery boy. In pictures circulated on social media, Sadat can be seen delivering a pizza while dressed in a bright orange costume carrying a huge bag behind similar to that used by German delivery guys.

Sadat graduated from Oxford University with two master's degrees in communications and electrical engineering. He even worked for Aramco as well as the Saudi Telecom Company. For 23 years, he was in the communications industry with over 20 firms in 13 countries in which Saudi Arabia is also included. 

Sadat was appointed as the Minister of Communications in the Afghanistan government in 2018 and resigned in 2020 way before the Taliban took over Afghanistan. He had supposedly travelled to Germany to assist with difficulties related to communication in Afghanistan, but he was unable to do so because of the disagreements with Ashraf Ghani. However, he was reportedly compelled to work as a pizza delivery guy to make ends meet. He now rides his bicycle across the city, delivering meals to people's doors.

From 2005 until 2013, Sadat served as a technical consultant to the communication and information technology ministry of Afghanistan, a position he held for more than two decades. Syed Ahmad Sadat was the CEO of Ariana Telecom in London from 2016 until 2017.
