The information about the people of Kerala coming to the fore with ISIS-K has raised the concern of the Government of India. This is because Taliban can use these Keralites to tarnish India’s image in Afghanistan.
Pakistan is waiting for this
At present, the situation in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, remains worrying. Pakistan, backed by the Haqqani network, has been pressuring the Taliban to include some members of the previous government in a 12-member council for the government to be recognized by the international community. However, Afghanistan’s neighbors are waiting for the US and other NATO allies to completely withdraw from the Islamic emirate before taking any decision on the Taliban.
