After Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, former cricketer Shahid Afridi has extended his support to the Taliban, claiming that the terrorist group came to power with a “positive mindset”. They have arrived with a really upbeat attitude. He has made it possible for women to work. They provide opportunity to children to participate in politics. They are fans of cricket… and I believe the Taliban are big fans of cricket.”
Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has already shown sympathy for the Taliban. In July, before the terror group forcibly took over the Afghan government, Khan said the Taliban were some “not military organizations but ordinary citizens”, and asked if there were three million Afghan refugees on the border, what the country should be doing. How was he supposed to hunt them? .
Khan said in a television interview that Pakistan is home to three million Afghan refugees, most of them Pashtuns, the same ethnic group as Taliban militants. “Now there are camps with 500,000 people and camps with 100,000 people. And the Taliban are not a military force; they are ordinary civilians. And, if civilians are present in these camps, how is Pakistan to track them down? What do you think? Makes think they are sanctuary?
