Afghan refugees not involved in Pakistan’s security problems: Taliban

  • Taliban administration spokesman says behavior of Pakistan against Afghan refugees is unacceptable
Published October 4, 2023

ISLAMABAD: Afghan refugees are not involved in Pakistan’s security problems, spokesman for the Taliban administration in Kabul said on Wednesday, calling on Islamabad to reconsider plans to expel illegal Afghan immigrants.

Zabihullah Mujahid also said in a post on social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, that the refugees should be “tolerated” by Pakistan as long as they did not leave voluntarily.

“The behaviour of Pakistan against Afghan refugees is unacceptable,” he said. “The Pakistani side should reconsider its plan. Afghan refugees are not involved in Pakistan’s security problems. As long as they leave Pakistan voluntarily, that country should tolerate them.”

His remarks come after Pakistan on Tuesday gave illegal immigrants a deadline to leave by November 1 or face forcible expulsion.

In a presser, Caretaker Interior Minister Sarfaraz Ahmed Bugti said Afghan nationals were found involved in recent terrorist attacks in the country including one in Peshawar mosque, Qila Saifullah, Zhob, and Hangu.

“We were attacked from the Afghanistan side and Afghan nationals are involved in the terrorist attacks,” the minister said, while addressing a press conference, after the apex committee meeting on the National Action Plan (NAP).

The committee decided to evict illegal immigrants and set November 1 as the deadline for the illegal immigrants to leave the country; otherwise, action will be taken against them.

To a question about cross-border terrorism, he said that since January this year, 24 terrorist attacks occurred in the country, and Afghan nationals were found involved in 14 of these attacks. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is taking up the matter with the Afghan interim government, he said.

Will the Afghan government tolerate 45 million Pakistanis in Afghanistan and allow them to go back voluntarily whenever they want to? After all, justice and fair play is the main topic.

They are behind every illegal activity happening in Pakistan starting from drug smuggling , dollar smuggling, illegal BARA market spread across the country, prostitution, abduction and bomb blast etc. Enough is enough we have served them for last 44 years and what they reciprocated, only hatred. GOP should not falter on their stance no matter what come what may.

We thought that we had the taliban in our pocket. Looks like it is the otherway around. Before our economy went kaput, these boys would not talk without our permission. Now they are acting like our overlords.

Why behavior of Pakistan is unacceptable? Pakistan is our country and their is no war in Afghanistan, so what refuge? Afghanis have to go back to their country. They have not been good guests. They are involved in all illicit trades and traits. I am yet to meet an Afghani who is grateful for having had shelter in Pakistan.

If anything happens to Afghans in Pakistan, a new nation will be born called Balochistan.
