Pak army’s deployment on frontline alongside Taliban in Afghanistan exposed

Published

New Delhi, August 1: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khans ingrained habit of denying facts has been exposed again.

In an interview with PBS NewsHour, Khan had vehemently denied that Pakistani soldiers and other “fighters” have crossed the Durand line into Afghanistan in support of the Taliban.

“Absolutely nonsense” the former cricketer asserted when quizzed on whether Islamabad had provided boots on the ground in support of the Taliban inside Pakistan.

But the lie has now been exposed as pictures available with India Narrative show Pakistani troops and officials receiving coffins of their fallen comrades inside Afghanistan at a checkpoint along the Durand line. Photos of ambulances to transport the injured, along with the identity cards of the killed leave no doubt that Pakistan military’s is directly participating in combat alongside Taliban in Afghanistan.

Recently the Afghan security forces say that they have killed many Pakistani soldiers. According to Afghan Army 209 Corps, a Pakistan army officer named Javed was killed by intelligence agency officers. They said that Javed was leading the Taliban in Logar, Paktia, and Paktika provinces.

According to Afghan intelligence, more than 500 Pakistani army and ISI officials led by a Lt General are present in Afghanistan to guide the Taliban in strategising its plan against the Afghan government.

The Generals of the Afghan army also stress that there are thousands of foreign fighters with most of them Pakistani nationals who are fighting alongside the Taliban in areas along the Durand Line.

“Intelligence information shows that there are retired Pakistani colonels who are training the local Taliban,” said Gen. Karim Niazi, commander of the second regiment of Selab 201 Corps, as quoted by TOLO news.

Afghan sources also claimed that they had arrested some Pakistanis involved in the fighting. They also charged that wounded Taliban combatants were being taken for treatment across the border in Pakistan.

Social media posts have shown announcements and advertisements for their memorial services, as their dead bodies return to their hometowns. Videos of Pakistani citizens holding Taliban flags and chanting Islamist slogans at rallies to show support for the Afghan insurgents have been circulating on social media.

According to one Pakistani analyst, “Pakistani army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa, Prime Minister Imran Khan used to say the relationship with the Taliban puts it in a great position to facilitate talks between the Taliban and the US but when they say that they have no �influence’ over the Taliban. They (are) contradicting their own claims. There is public support for the Taliban within Pakistan and over the years Pakistani nationals remain their volunteer fighters. It’s a fact.”

It is apparent that the Pakistani narrative is riven with contradictions as it is hard to cover up Islamabad’s hand-in-glove support to terror groups.

“Paki military has super alliances with terrorists. It should be declared a terrorist state. ISI can protect UBL & regional/International terrorists but Afghans are not allowed to meet PAK politicians,” says former Afghan intelligence chief Rahmatullah Nabil in his post on social media.

Pakistan’s brazen support for the Taliban has triggered a blowback inside Pakistan. On January 27, Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) had organised a very successful rally in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan’s “wild west” in support of the Afghans fighting against the Taliban and the Pakistani terrorists. A massive gathering in Waziristan yesterday asked the Pakistani rulers to stop sending terrorists into Afghanistan for killing Afghans.

Pakistani parliamentarian Mohsin Dawar took a pot shot at the Pakistani army, when he said: “This is just like an invasion. It is a step towards attacking your neighbouring country. You are supporting the terrorists who are fighting their government there. Despite losing thousands of Pakistanis, the State refuses to change its policies. Look at the way the Establishment controlled media is exaggerating Taliban achievements in Afghanistan. If the Taliban are so dear to the Establishment, then why not select them for Pakistan as well.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Published

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
