Afghan govt arrests 200 TTP militants involved in September Chitral attack

The Afghan Taliban have arrested over 200 militants of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) who were involved in the deadly attack on Chitral district in Pakistan. The arrest is a result of Pakistan’s efforts and continuous pressure on the Afghan Taliban to crack down on the TTP, which has been using Afghan soil to launch cross-border attacks on Pakistan.

The Afghan Taliban’s supreme leader Hibatullah Akhundzada has also instructed the Afghan people not to fund or support the TTP, which he considers a terrorist group. He said that no one will be allowed to spoil the relations between Afghanistan and Pakistan, which are both Islamic countries.

On September 21, 2023, the Afghan Taliban shared details of the crackdown against the TTP with Pakistan’s special envoy Asif Durani during a meeting in Kabul. The Afghan Taliban’s foreign minister Amir Khan Muttaqi also assured Durani that they would take “solid steps” to “neutralize” the activities of the militants who plan and execute attacks in Pakistan.

The Afghan Taliban have also started the process of relocating the TTP from the border areas to other parts of Afghanistan. The TTP’s presence and operations in Afghanistan have been a serious concern for Pakistan, which has suffered from numerous terrorist attacks by the TTP in recent years.

Earlier, on February 23, 2023, the Afghan Taliban had expressed their support for Pakistan to deal with the TTP due to its rampant terrorism. On August 6, 2023, the Afghan Taliban’s chief had also declared the cross-border attacks on Pakistan as forbidden and against the Islamic principles.

Pakistani authorities had shown “video evidence” and the bodies of the Taliban who were involved in the recent high-profile “terrorist” attacks and killed by the security forces, Voice of America confirmed. The attacks included the bombing of a luxury hotel in Quetta, the assassination attempt on Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, and the suicide attack on a paramilitary convoy in Balochistan.  ..

  1. Thanks God we are now seeing some sense being displayed by the people responsible to do so. They are not only doing their duty for the affected innocent people,they are doing a favour very surprisingly, to those who are inviting hellfire upon themselves by carrying out acts, that are utterly repulsive to Lord Almighty (swt). He has already warned the humankind in words “Allaho lah yuohibbulmoofsaydeen”.
    Why do those who tell ignorant young men to acts that are repulsive to the Almmighty not know that they themselves are making themslves worthy of beng sent to hellfire for what they are doing.
    Majority of people in the world lay claim to being Jews, Christians, Muslims or of any other religion. They do so without proving their claim by their deeds.
    Overwhelmng majority of people claiming to being Muslims cannot be seen to be coming out of their houses to join hands with each other to work together to bring about the rule of Udl wul Ehsaan in the neighbourhood where they live while night and noon they promise to do so. They promise to do so when they assert their intention by reading the Kalimah. The Almighty has made it clear to every soul in words “No soul shall carry the burden of another soul on Yaumulqiyahmuh”. Every Muslim is under obligation thus, to join hands with others of their neighburhood to work collectively to bring about triumph of virtues and eradicatin of vices.
