Afghanistan's Government has been criticising Pakistan for helping the Taliban in taking control over the country.
Netizens in Afghanistan have launched a social media campaign against Pakistan, calling for sanctions against it for waging a proxy war against them. #SanctionPakistan was among the top trending hashtags with more than 3 lakh tweets.
Habib Khan, a Kabul-based journalist, started the social media campaign.
“Our country is burning. Millions of people are losing lives, families, homes and dreams. Women, men and children are being massacred on a daily basis. Cities fall, one after another, the world is watching a human catastrophe in the making,” he said in his tweet.
Former Canadian politician and diplomat Chris Alexander tweeted, “Pakistan's invasion of Afghanistan constitutes an armed attack & act of aggression under Chapter VII of the UN Charter. The international community must take action under Articles 41 or 42 to uphold international law & the rules-based international order”.
Wahida Wardak tweeted, “Normally Madrasas offer Quran lessons & present Islamic scholars to the society, but Pakistani Madrasas brainwash children, train them how to shoot, kill, torture & exports terrorists & extremism to #Afghanistan! #SanctionPakistan”.
