The Taliban has encouraged India to desist from having a military role in Afghanistan, notwithstanding India’s humanitarian and developmental efforts in the country, including the construction of the Salma Dam, roads, and other infrastructural projects. Suhail Shaheen, a Taliban spokesperson stationed in Qatar, told ANI, “What do you mean by military role?” If they come militarily to Afghanistan and establish a presence. I believe that will not be beneficial to them, since they have witnessed the consequences of other countries’ military presence in Afghanistan. As a result, they have an open book in front of them. In terms of their assistance to the Afghan people or national programmes, I believe they have done a good job.
