A similar protest was lodged by the Pakistan Ambassador in Kabul with the Afghan government.

They added they had also been locked up in Afghanistan’s Pul-i-Charkhi prison where they were tortured by jail authorities. And when they were returning, Afghan forces allegedly tore their Pakistani passports, snatched their money and beat up them brutally.

  1. I have traveled by road in Afghanistan 22 times from 1970 to 1979.  I experienced often on the Highways the bad the worst and the aggressive attitude of Afghan Soldiers who were all Tajik Farsi speaking.  They are the worst enemies of the Pakistan and its people. Ahmed Shah Masood`s younger brother Wali Masood who was a student in London occupied Afghan consulate and began opposing Pakistan on the media. Abdulla abdulla and many other Afghan politicians have big mouth and cannot control themselves when speaking out on media.    As a commoner Pakistani, I must say that Pakistan do not need to  have any interest in Afghan affairs( as they always fight with each other even in peace times ) but Pakistan does not want Afghanistan administration at all to use Afghanistan by the INDIANS for subversive  activities in Pakistan.  Afghans need to learn seriously that Pakistan is their carer and friend but not the INDIANS.  Pakistan have suffered a great deal because of Afghans own internal wars.
