His claims, however, were met with mockery on social media. Levi even went on to say that DG ISI Faiz Hameed had been coordinating.

“Just received from #PanjshirValley credible information about #Pakistan commandos fighting #Massoud’s people; one commander of #SSG on the ground; cobra helicopters in the air; few #Pakistani ID left on battlefield; and, in #Kabul, maybe coordinating, Lt Gen Faiz Hamid from #ISI,” wrote Bernard-Henry Levi on Twitter.

An ‘imaginative tweet’: Pak Army in Panjshir?

His tweet garnered strong reactions from people belonging to different walks of life on Twitter. Pakistani Twitter users not only debunked his claims but even thrashed the intellectual for leveling false allegations without investigation. Several users posted hilarious comments while some called it an ‘imaginative tweet’ and the plot of the Hollywood movie.

Shahbaz Taseer, son of late Salman Taseer, said that he has watched such things closely when he was in captivity. Taseer said that “I spent 5 years with these guys in a warzone and I know one thing 100% not a single ID ever left on a battlefield… you know why? Because they change their names during induction so NO ID exists. This is why it’s better to not speak when we have no knowledge,” said Shahbaz Taseer.
