Former singer Fakhr-e-Alam on Tuesday slammed the Afghan government for the current crisis in Afghanistan. The civilians in Afghanistan are undergoing severe quandary as fighting intensifies between Afghan forces and the Taliban.
The helpless civilians are stuck in between heavy fighting in Afghanistan. Whereas, negative campaigns are observed on social media accusing Pakistan of serious turbulence unfolding in Afghanistan. For the past few weeks, malicious campaigns are slandering Pakistan for the current crisis. Users are spewing hate against Pakistan, calling for the boycott of Pakistani products.
Alam expressed his disappointment on the adverse situation in Afghanistan. He pointed out the lack of basic facilities and unemployment in Afghanistan and called out the Afghan government for failing to deliver. The singer-turned-commentator in his tweet questioned why the Afghan government is blaming Pakistan for its messed up situation when it failed to provide basic amenities to the people.
“YOU failed to provide education, healthcare, create employment or build a consensus & create social harmony in your country. We fenced 2600kms border, put manned check posts, biometric crossings & host 4 million Afghan refugees. Yet you blame Pakistan for all YOUR failures,” said Fakhr e Alam in the tweet.
In another tweet, he used the #AfghanGovtFailures. His response certainly came in response to the #BlameGameOnPakistan running on Twitter.

Islamabad also regretted that its request to attend the meeting was denied by India – the newly elected UNSC chair – despite being an important part of the fragile process.
The urgent meeting was convened on Friday to discuss the rising violence in Afghanistan after Afghan Foreign Minister Mohammed Haneef Atmar spoke with India’s External Affairs Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar.
