Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has once again expressed that he stands with the Taliban. Imran Khan has supported the Taliban’s capture of power in Afghanistan. Imran Khan has even said that Afghans have broken the shackles of slavery.
The Taliban has completely spread in Afghanistan. The Taliban also captured Kabul, the only city held by the Afghan government, on Sunday. Before that, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani was forced to flee the country along with his allies.
Imran Khan had actually reached the launch of the syllabus of the first phase of the Single National Curriculum (SNC) on Monday. It was part of the manifesto of the ruling party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf. Imran Khan also said that because of the parallel education system, English came into the schools, due to which the culture of others flourished in Pakistan.
Mental slavery worse than real slavery!
The anger against Western philosophy was clearly visible in Imran Khan’s speech. He said that when you adopt someone’s culture, you consider it superior and you become its slave. This, he said, creates a system of mental slavery that is worse than actual slavery.
‘The international community came with the Taliban’
On the other hand, Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi even said that the international community should be in constant touch with Afghanistan. Qureshi has also said that Pakistan will continue to play an important role in bringing back political stability in Afghanistan.
‘Big decisions are not made by slave mind’
Imran Khan said that a subordinate mind can never take big decisions. Pakistan has already been accused of supporting the Taliban insurgency. Perhaps this is the reason that after 20 years of peace in Afghanistan, when America called back its troops, the Taliban became active again. On Sunday, Kabul also came under Taliban control. Afghanistan has been continuously accusing Pakistan of promoting the Taliban.
Imran Khan hosting Afghan leaders!
Officially, Pakistan has said that it wants a broad-based inclusive government in Afghanistan. Pakistan is also hosting Afghan leaders for peaceful talks. However, there are allegations against Pakistan that a large number of weapons, facilities and funding have been provided by Pakistan itself.
