Afghan Cricketer Rashid Khan urges to protect Afghans from Taliban attacks.
His country is on fire. The Afghan army is gradually falling into the hands of the Taliban. Two decades later, the horrors of Taliban rule seem to be engulfing Afghans.
However, the world’s powerful countries do not seem to stand by the government of that country. So far, the US military has indirectly supported the Afghan army, but they have decided to stop it from August 31. It is raising fears among residents of the country devastated by Taliban terror.
At the same time, Afghan celebrities are silent in this horrible situation of the country. Many are measuring water. Many are terrified of the Taliban but are unable to open their mouths.
But Rashid Khan, the captain of Afghanistan’s limited-overs cricket team, did not make a list. Seeing the helpless condition of his countrymen, he could no longer remain silent. He opened his mouth on Twitter. “Dear world leaders, Don’t leave us helpless like this,” he tweeted.”
He also tweeted, “Extreme chaos is now in my country. Thousands of women, including children and women, are being martyred every day. Someone’s house is going, someone’s property is going, thousands of families are homeless today. Thus do not leave us in chaos. Stop killing Afghans, stop destroying Afghanistan. We want peace.”
