Pakistan Caretaker Prime Minister (PM) Anwarl ul Haq Kakar links the rise in terrorism to interim Afghan government since 2021 when it came into power.
PM Kakar today in a media talk demanded Afghanistan hand over ‘wanted’ terrorists. He reveals a 60% increase in terror assaults since the Afghan interim government took office in 2021. Suicide attacks have increased by 500%. He added that the continuous deportation campaign of illegal Afghan immigrants is linked to counter-terrorism efforts.
Why does PM Kakar blame the Afghan Government for terrorism?
PM Kakar’s remarks came after a rise in terror incidents in the country over the last week. It includes an attack on the Mianwali Training Air Base claimed by the Tehreek-i-Jihad Pakistan. And Balochistan Liberation Front claimed a surprise attack in Gwadar. While no group claimed responsibility for attacks in Dera Ismail Khan.
The Taliban took over Afghanistan in August 2021 after an explosive sweep that ended in Kabul. When government forces trained for years and equipped at a cost of trillions of dollars by the US and others, melted away.
In an address to the media in Islamabad, PM Kakar stated we had a strong hope that there would be long-term peace in Afghanistan after the interim Afghan government establishment in August 2021.
He claimed strict action would be taken against Pakistan-opposing groups, particularly the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan. And law enforcement agencies would prohibit them from using Afghan territory against Pakistan.
He went on to say that the government hoped the neighboring countries would take “every possible action” to prevent its soil from being exploited for attacks against Pakistan.
