The Taliban, which is occupying cities one by one in Afghanistan, has clarified the relationship with Pakistani terrorist groups. Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen said that it has no connection with the terrorist organizations Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed growing in Pakistan. Suhail Shaheen claimed that organizations like Lashkar, Jaish-e-Mohammed will not be allowed to use the soil of Afghanistan against other countries.

‘No relation with Pak terrorists’
In an interview to DNA, Taliban spokesperson Suhail Shaheen has said that they have no affiliation with organizations in Pakistan. Reports that surfaced a few days ago claimed that Pakistan’s terrorists and intelligence agencies are fighting a war with the Taliban. It was also claimed that Taliban fighters are being trained in Hyderabad, Pakistan.

Ghani had pointed towards Pakistan
These reports were bolstered by a statement by Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, in which he pointed to connections between Pakistan and the Taliban. He even told the Taliban that if they loved Afghanistan, they would not accept the Durand Line. This boundary was drawn by Britain between the two countries, which Kabul does not accept.

‘Fair India’
Shaheen has also rejected the talk of meeting with the representatives of India. He expressed hope that India will be fair on this issue. At the same time, it has also claimed to protect the rights of women. Shaheen says that women will get freedom of education and work based on the rules of Islam.

India giving weapons to Afghan government: Taliban
Earlier in another interview, a Taliban spokesperson said that India was favoring the Afghan government set up by foreigners. They are not with us. If they stick to their policy of supporting the government imposed on Afghans, perhaps they should be concerned. That is a wrong policy that will not protect them. India has been vigilant in supporting any military organization or militia in Afghanistan from the very beginning. India has also learned a lot from the defense assistance given to the Northern Alliance. Shaheen said, ‘We have received reports from our commanders that India is providing weapons to the other side. How is it possible that they want to talk to Taliban but practically they are providing weapons, drones, everything to Kabul? It is contradictory.’
