Statement about joining Jihad in Kashmir is wrong, says Taliban, calls it India’s internal affair

After social media handles claiming affiliation to the Taliban said that the organisation was preparing for war in Kashmir, spokesperson for the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, the political wing of Taliban came out with a clarification, as translated and quoted by Hindustan Times.

“The statement published in the media about Taliban joining Jihad in Kashmir is wrong… The policy of the Islamic Emirate is clear that it does not interfere in the internal affairs of other countries,” Suhail Shaheen, the spokesperson for the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, the political wing of Taliban, as translated and quoted by The Indian Express.

The strong clarification comes a day after officials monitoring social media noted a spike in posts around claims that a Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid said it was impossible to be friends with India unless the Kashmir dispute is resolved.
