Pakistan Leader Says ‘Taliban Will Help Us Conquer Kashmir’ During TV Debate, Trolled After Video Goes Viral | Watch
The controversial statement was made during an on-air TV show, when Irshad Sheikh, a senior leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf predicted that the Taliban will win Kashmir and hand it over to Pakistan.
Viral Video: A shocking video has emerged on Twitter, showing a Pakistan leader declaring that the Taliban would help the country in ‘liberating’ Kashmir from India. The controversial statement was made during an on-air TV show, when Irshad Sheikh, a senior leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf predicted that the Taliban will win Kashmir and hand it over to Pakistan. Notably, Sheikh is a leader of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), PM Imran Khan’s political party.
”The Taliban are saying that they are with us and they will help us in Kashmir,” Sheikh casually said during the show. Stunned at her statement, the news anchor tried to drill some sense into her and repeatedly asks Sheikh about the source of her information. He mocks her asking whether she read such information on WhatsApp.

He says, “Madam, do you realise what you have said. You have no idea what you have said. For God’s sake ma’am, this show will air around the world. This will be viewed in India.” However, unaffected and unconcerned Irshad Sheikh continued saying that “Taliban will help us because they have been mistreated.”

The Taliban had earlier stated that Kashmir is India’s ‘internal and bilateral’ issue and said that the group is unlikely to focus on the Indian Union territory. Meanwhile, the video has gone viral on Twitter, sparking both outrage and ridicule from netizens. Many Indians made fun of her statement, saying how her comment openly proves Pakistan military’s intimate ties with the Taliban and its anti-India objective.

Yes please. Speak more. Let the world know Pakistani government is hand in glove with the Taliban. Not just of Afghans, you also have the blood of the kids of Peshawar Army School on your hands who were slaughtered by Taliban in 2014. https://t.co/eZ2aRubsGb

Time and again, Pakistan has been accused of providing covert support to the Taliban, who seized control Afghnistan on August 15. Earlier, the Afghan government had accused Pakistan and its intelligence service of playing a key role in fostering the Taliban.
