Berlin: – Protests erupt worldwide against Pakistan, the prominent supporter of the Taliban terrorists occupying Afghanistan. Protesters in the United States, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand have demanded that sanctions be imposed on Pakistan’s military and intelligence agencies responsible for the unrest in Afghanistan. Apart from Afghans and Western civilians, citizens of Pakistani descent also participated in it, which is remarkable.
For the past week, there has been a trend on social media demanding ‘Sanction Pakistan’. This trend is continuing from the USA, Canada, India, Afghanistan as well as Pakistan itself. The information was given to the media by Pakistan’s Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry and National Security Adviser Moeed Yusuf. The Pakistani minister had alleged that the US and India were behind the propaganda on social media. But the allegations were ridiculed by Pakistan itself.
The anti-Pakistan protests have taken to the streets from the social media since the Taliban took control of the Afghan capital, Kabul, on Sunday. Angry protests against Pakistan erupted in the United States, Canada, Britain, Germany, the Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand. The protests were led by Afghans living in the United States and European countries. Citizens of the United States and European countries took part in the protests.
The protests took place in front of the embassies of Afghanistan and Pakistan in Washington, London, Berlin and Adelaide. Afghanis and pro-Afghan Americans took part in the protest in front of the United Nations embassy in New York. There have also been reports of anti-Pakistan protests in Bangladesh. The protesters accused Pakistan of harbouring the Taliban, providing military assistance and supporting the militant group internationally, and being responsible for Afghanistan’s current situation. Citizens of Pashtun, Baloch and Sindhi ethnic groups from Pakistan also took part in the protests.
