India’s failed strategy in Afghanistan – exposed by the Taliban

By Syed Atiq ul Hassan - posted Tuesday, 14 September 2021

ISI realized that India had planned to gain the trust of US and European nations so that, behind the scenes, India could launch a war against Pakistan through the means of terrorism, using the 700-kilometer-long western Pakistan/Afghanistan border of Pakistan.

Unlike RAW, ISI has worked in the past with the Pentagon and the CIA so the US understands the strength of ISI and its relationship with the Taliban.

The Indian media can tell sizzling and thrilling stories and the Indian government can claim whatever they want to, but the rest of the world is silent, instead praising Pakistan. No countries blame Pakistan or ISI except India, and the reasons are now obvious. Pakistan has turned out to be the most important country in the region. The US Secretary of State and the foreign ministers of Western countries are meeting with Pakistan, as they decide the fate of Afghanistan under the Taliban's rule.


'What goes around comes around'. The Indian government and its agency RAW have to understand now why ISI is ranked as the number ONE agency in the world. ISI launched its operations patiently but successfully.

The surprise visit of ISI Chief Lieutenant General Faiz Hameed to Kabul before the official announcement of the Taliban's government should make it clear to India that ISI is working to form the Taliban's government with the consent of the US and NATO forces.

India must understand that their game in Afghanistan is finished now. The Indian media can cry and abuse Pakistan all they like. Instead, India must learn a lesson. It should acknowledge the region's realities on the ground, accept the failure of Indian policy in Afghanistan, and it must change its policy of hatred against Pakistan and Kashmir. The Taliban have already warned that their government will not allow anyone to use Afghan soil against any country – and by any country they basically mean Pakistan.

The Indian government's policy of hatred against Pakistan has been revealed to the world now. After failing in Afghanistan, India must now focus on Kashmir and deliver freedom to the people of Kashmir by pulling out its troops from occupied Kashmir, otherwise, India will have to face another great embarrassment in Kashmir. The time is coming for India to free Kashmir and pull out their forces from Kashmir.
