RASC News Agency: The acting Prime Minister of Pakistan, Anwaar ul Haq Kakar, stated recently that the intelligence agents of the former Afghanistan government will not be expelled from Pakistan. Kakar made these statements on November 8th while speaking to the media. He added that the Pakistani government will not expel these agents due to the threats they face in Afghanistan under the control of the Taliban group.
After the Taliban group took control of Afghanistan and the collapse of the republican regime, a large number of intelligence and security agents fled to neighboring countries, especially Pakistan, out of fear of the group. The Prime Minister of Pakistan also mentioned that if these agents were to return to Afghanistan, they could face retaliatory actions from the Taliban group, putting their lives at risk. For this reason, Pakistan has chosen not to expel them.
It is important to note that Pakistan has started detaining and expelling 1,700,000 “undocumented” Afghanistani immigrants from all over the country after the set deadline. So far, thousands have been forcibly expelled and returned to Afghanistan. According to the United Nations, more than 78 percent of immigrants from Afghanistan said they were forced to return due to the fear of apprehension by Pakistani authorities.
Despite the announcement of amnesty by the Taliban leader, they continue to apprehend, torture, and in most cases, kill soldiers of the previous government. In addition to intelligence agents, there are also numerous former government employees and officials who would be at risk of harm or death if they were to return to Afghanistan. This presents a complex and challenging situation that requires careful consideration and addressing in any plans for repatriation or resettlement.
