PML-N Leader Khawaja Asif Faces Backlash For Glorifying Taliban

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader and former foreign minister Khawaja Asif is under fire for posting a tweet that glorifies the Afghan Taliban in the wake of the peace talks between the US, the Afghan government, and the militant outfit.

In a tweet, Asif said posted a picture of US Foreign Secretary Mike Pompeo and Taliban leader Mullah Baradar with the caption 'You may have the power, but God is with us... Allah is great'.

The decision to shower the Taliban with praise did not go down well with social media users, who pointed out the PML-N's leader duplicity over his views against militant outfits.

Responding to Asif's tweet, journalist Gul Bukhari said the PML-N has not distanced itself by the statement made by the lawmaker, which means that is Asif is toeing the party line by making such a statement.
