Pakistan’s economy is going through a bad phase and the risk of the country’s default is increasing. The situation is such that the government of Pakistan has to sell the buildings of its embassy in America. Pakistan is constantly taking loans from China, Saudi Arabia and the International Monetary Fund, but it is facing budget deficit due to spending too much on the military. Now the Taliban, which has turned from its friend to enemy, has made fun of this plight of Pakistan.
In a video going viral on social media, Taliban army officer General Mobin Khan is asked whether you are crossing the border of Pakistan. To this General Mobin replied, ‘Even if they themselves give it to Pakistan, we will not take it. Who will repay their loan? The Taliban commander has made fun of poor Pakistan at a time when there have been fierce clashes on the border between the two in which many people from both the sides have been killed.
