Arif Khan or Mohammad Arif Khan was a Mujahideen warlord in Afghanistan and Pashtun leader from the village of Zakhel. He was a military commander and the Taliban governor of Kunduz province.[1] An account indicated that he might have served under or was associated with the militant commander Eshan-Sayad Mirza.[2]

Khan was reportedly killed on April 4, 2000.[3] His death came with the killing of top Hizb-ul-Mujahideen commanders Ghulam Rasool Khan, Ghulam Rasool Dar, and Saif-ur-Rehman Bajwa.[4]
