‘Afghanistan’s soil was not used to attack Bacha Khan Varsity’

The Afghan government has rejected that the Afghan soil was used by the terrorists to launch attack on Bacha Khan University in Charsadda area of Pakistan.

The Office of the President in a statement said the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan has never supported a terrorist group and has never provided sanctuaries for the terror groups.

The statement further added “The recent remarks by Head of the Inter Services Public Relations, Gen. Asim Bajwa, suggesting that the group of terrorists launch attack on Bacha Khan University in Charsadda area of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, are baseless.”

Strongly condemning the attack on Bacha Khan University, the Office of the President said fight against terrorism is only possible through joint and sincere cooperation.

The statement also added that the Afghan government understands there is no good or bad terrorists since the terrorists are only pursuing to spread terror, insisting on a joint and bold efforts to combat the menace of the terror in the region.

At least 21 people were killed and around 50 others were wounded after a group of insurgents launched coordinated attack on Bacha Khan University on Wednesday.

The Pakistani military claimed that the attack was coordinated by the terrorist groups using the Afghan soil.

Omar Mansoor, identifying himself from the Geedar group of Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), claimed responsibility for attack.

However, Mohammad Khurasani, the central spokesperson for the TTP distanced his group from the attack.
