    Pakistan News: Pakistan Pashtuns raise voice against Imran Khan govt, support Afghanistan | World News - Times of India
    Islamabad: Pakistani Liberal Pashtuns raise their voices against the government’s efforts to fuel unrest in neighboring Afghanistan by aiding the Taliban.
    The Pashtun Tahafuz (PTM) movement, an anti-war group, has been holding mass rallies in various parts of the province in recent weeks. The PTM condemned the Taliban and expressed its support for the Afghan government, Thai Haiger media reported.
    PTM has also gained ground in the northwestern parts of the country in recent years. And it had raised its voices against government-backed terrorism in the country and the surrounding area.
    The Pashtuns in the northwestern part of the country believe that Pakistan is responsible for the deteriorating situation in Afghanistan day by day, as Islamabad has been behind the terrorist group for a long time and is now providing all kinds of assistance to the Taliban.
    Most of these ethnic Pashtuns are wary of an endless war in their region and blame both the Taliban and Islamabad for the devastation in their areas, Haiger said.
    Progressive Pashtuns in the northwestern parts of the country have no inclination towards the terrorist group as they believe that violence can never bring peace.
    They recently held a meeting in Charsadda, a city in Pakistan’s northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, to discuss the deteriorating security situation in Afghanistan, Haiger said.
    The Pashtuns denounced the Taliban’s attacks on Afghan forces and also condemned the US deal with the Taliban in Doha, saying it had effectively legitimized the militant group.
    They also fear that the control of a terrorist group in the nearby area could affect the northwestern region of Pakistan.
    The party has gained ground in the northwestern parts of the country in recent years. And it had raised its voices against government-backed terrorism in the country and the surrounding area.
    There have been many attempts to target Pashtun activists by the government as they speak out against Islamabad.
    Last week, the body in handcuffs of Awami National Party (ANP) leader Malik Ubedullah was found in the Pishin area of ​​Balochistan. The body was retrieved from the Muhajir Saranan provincial camp.
    Forced disappearances of political activists, students and other intellectuals are now commonplace in Balochistan, as Pakistani security forces have launched a campaign to silence dissidents.
    Earlier this month, Pashtun leader Mahmoud Khan Ahakzayi called on the Pakistani government led by Imran Khan to end its support for the war in Afghanistan, saying peace in the country was important for regional stability. Achakzai, the leader of Pakistan’s Awami National Party leader, recently said the world should respect Afghanistan’s independence.
