Pak PM Imran Khan

A day after the US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the US would reassess its relationship with Pakistan, Prime Minister Imran Khan called such comments ignorant, saying he has never heard such ignorance. Khan said the Islamabad was used like a hired gun by America.

In his first interview with the CNN, after the Taliban took over, Khan said the best way forward for peace and stability in Afghanistan is to engage with the Taliban and incentivise them on issues such as women’s rights and inclusive government.

Khan revealed that despite being a non-NATO ally, he has not spoken with US President Joe Biden since the Taliban takeover. He said I would imagine he’s very busy, but our relationship with the US is not just dependent on a phone call, it needs to be a multidimensional relationship, said Khan.

On Taliban, Khan said said that the world should give Taliban time on human rights but fears chaos without aid. He said the Taliban are looking for international aid to avoid a crisis, which could be used to push the group in the right direction towards legitimacy. However, he warned that Afghanistan could not be controlled by outside forces.

No puppet government in Afghanistan is supported by the people, he said. So rather than sitting here and thinking that we can control them, we should incentivize them. Because Afghanistan, this current government, clearly feels that without international aid and help, they will not be able to stop this crisis. So we should push them in the right direction.

However, earlier, Pakistan PM had endorsed the Taliban’s advance in the war-torn country, describing it as breaking the shackles of slavery. Now Pakistan wants the world to give some time to understand the Taliban. Khan has also questioned America’s understanding about the same terrorist network Haqqani.

Imran Khan has openly said that ‘the US could never understand the Haqqani network’. Praising the Haqqani network, the former cricketer said- ‘Haqqani is the Pashtun tribe of Pakistan. These people were the Mujahideen who fought the war against the Soviets. Khan was trying to cover up the relationship between Pakistan and Haqqani network.

Meanwhile, commenting on Blinken’s remarks, Khan said Pakistan is now seeking a more pragmatic approach in dealing with Afghanistan”s new leaders. He said we were supposed to make them (the US) win the war in Afghanistan, which we never could.

On Monday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the US country will be reassessing its relationship with Pakistan. Blinken was testifying in front of the US foreign affairs committee on the hasty pull-out from the war ravaged country. The US lawmakers said Pakistan’s ISI openly supports Taliban and Haqqani Network, however, it is time to consider stronger relations with India.

Khan has denied US claims that Pakistan harbours terrorists and provide them safe havens.

What are these safe havens? Khan asked. The area of Pakistan along the border of Afghanistan had the heaviest surveillance by the United States drones … surely they would have known if there were any safe havens?

Khan said he cannot destroy his country to fight someone else’s war.

Kidnapped Indian-origin family of 4, including 8-month-old, found dead in California

In a chilling incident, four members of the Indian-origin Sikh family, including an eight-month-old baby girl, were found dead in California, United States in an orchard on Wednesday after they were kidnapped earlier this week. The reports state that the family was abducted at gunpoint on Monday.

The bodies of the deceased were discovered by a farm worker in a remote orchard in Merced County. The victims were identified as baby Aroohi Dheri, Jasleen Kaur, 27, her father, Jasdeep Singh, 36, and the baby’s uncle, Amandeep Singh, 39. According to the officials, the family of four was kidnapped from the family’s trucking company in Merced.

At a press conference, Sheriff Vern Warnke said tonight our worse fears have been confirmed and called it a horrible senseless act. He further said that the family (of the victim) has been notified. We have made arrangements through other contacts to try and get them, he added. Warnke further said that the police are investigating the matter to find the motivation of the killer.

According to the officials, the convicted robber tried to take his own life after the killings. The police nabbed the 48-year-old Jesus Salgado after they caught him using their ATM card in Atwater in Merced County. The police couldn’t interrogate the accused as he is currently under medical supervision.

The surveillance footage which was released on Wednesday showed that the family was pushed inside a truck by an armed guy. Amandeep and Jasdeep were seen leaving the company with their hands bound. A few seconds later, the mother of the infant and the kidnapper followed them to a truck.

Salgado had previously been found guilty in Merced County of attempted false imprisonment, first-degree robbery with the use of a firearm, and an attempt to deter or persuade a victim or witness. The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation reports that he received an 11-year state prison sentence in that case. He was released from prison in 2015 and discharged from parole three years later.
