Popular News

Islamabad/Quetta: Videos are now emerging from cities like Quetta where Pakistani citizens could be seen holding Taliban flags and chanting Islamist slogans at rallies to show support for the Afghan insurgents.

The Taliban terrorists are fast advancing in Afghanistan ever since foreign forces are leaving the nation.

Many locals and witnesses in the city of Quetta and district of Pishin of Balochistan province told DW that there had been an increased pro-Taliban activity in their areas.

Mohsin Dawar, a progressive opposition lawmaker from Pakistan's northwestern tribal areas, said that "the Taliban continue to roam freely in different parts of Pakistan, including Quetta."

"It is not possible without the state's support," he said.
