Now that it has become clear that a Taliban government will be formed in Afghanistan in the next few days, India has again reiterated its concern that Afghanistan may not become the center of anti-India activities.India had made the same demand in talks with the top Taliban leader two days ago, but nothing has been said publicly about this meeting from the Taliban side.
In such a situation, Indian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi has again reiterated this point.Regarding the recognition of the Taliban government, Bagchi has also said that it is too early to say anything.Bagchi briefly answered dozens of questions asked by the media about the meeting between Indian Ambassador Deepak Mittal in Doha and the Taliban's top political leader, Mohammad Abbas Stanekzai.
He said that our main concern right now is that the land of Afghanistan should not be used for terrorist activities and not for anti-India activities.We had put the matter before the Taliban in the Doha meeting itself and we got a positive reply.
When asked whether India considers the Taliban a terrorist organization or not, he said that it is not our focus.He made it clear that India has met the Taliban with due care.Bagchi did not give any clear answer on whether there would be a meeting with the Taliban or not and said that, see what happens now.
On bringing back the remaining Indians from Afghanistan, he said India would be able to reconsider the matter once the Kabul airport resumes operations.Bagchi said that we are giving priority to the evacuation of our citizens as well as some Afghans.
This concern of India is not unnecessary.In the past, when the Taliban was in power, there had been a lot of anti-India activities at the behest of Pakistan.Today's Taliban is also completely under the control of Pakistan.It is being said from the Taliban that it wants to have normal friendly relations with India, but India is understanding that the people who will be in power there have been working with Pakistan's intelligence agency ISI for years.
Experts say that in recent days, the Indian Foreign Minister has talked to the foreign ministers of the US, UK and European Union countries, mainly on this issue, how the international fraternity is facing terrorist activities in Afghanistan. center can stop.There is also reason for India's concern that terrorist organizations like Al-Qaeda are showing signs of strengthening in Afghanistan.Al Qaeda has also threatened India on the issue of Kashmir.
