A video clip of a Taliban criticizing the Indian media is taking over Twitter. The clip was from an interview Taliban spokesperson Suhail Shaheen recently gave to Tv9.
In the interview, an Indian journalist asked Shaheen how much support they are receiving from Pakistan, especially ISI. He also said that there are reports of Pakistan sending Mujahideen to Afghanistan.
“This is all propaganda which is very common in your media outlets,” said Suhail Shaheen while debasing all such claims. “Since last year they [Indian media] are spreading such propaganda. And there is no reality to it.”
Taliban spokesperson also said India is spreading “baseless reports” on a large scale. He further berated the Indian journalist for not knowing the ground realities despite 20 years of war in Afghanistan.
“Instead of spreading propaganda, you should reflect over the ground realities,” Taliban spokesperson said on Indian media’s propaganda.
While Suhail Shaheen was speaking, the Indian journalist interrupted him and countered by saying that there are images of people crossing from Pakistan.
The Taliban spokesperson requested the Indian journalist to not speak while he is speaking.
He then went on to say that the Taliban want peace in Afghanistan and India’s propaganda serves no one.
Needless to say, Suhail Shaheen’s response to the Indian journalist is receiving mass traction on social media.
Twitteratis are expressing their appreciation for the Talib while mocking India.

Indian claims against Pakistan debunked by Torek Farhadi
Recently, another Indian journalist was exposed for spreading false claims against Pakistan.
While interviewing former Afghan Advisor Torek Farhadi, Indian journalist Priyanka Sharma claimed Pakistan is playing a double game in Afghanistan. According to her “reports”, on one hand, Pakistan is initiating counter-terrorism acts in Afghanistan with China. However, on the other hand, Pakistan is also sending terrorists to Afghanistan.
To which Torek clearly replied that he had not seen such reports in credible news forums.
“I have not seen the reports you are referring to in any credible world-level news forums,” he clearly said.
Quelling the claims of Pakistan’s terror activities in Afghanistan, Torek Farhadi said that Pakistan is also a victim of terrorism.
He further reiterated Pakistan’s desire for peace in Afghanistan and said Pakistan will put more pressure on the Taliban for negotiations.
