Whatever investment India has made in Afghanistan, it has been done to the detriment of Pakistan. He has no attachment to the people of Afghanistan. He poisoned the minds of Afghan leaders and the army there to harm Pakistan through TTP and IS.
Regarding Tehreek-e-Taliban’s threat, Babar Iftikhar said, “TTP is using Afghan land against Pakistan. Taliban leadership has said that Afghan land will not be used against any country. We are sure That he will use TTP against Pakistan.” Will stop working for Pakistan.
