Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaarul Haq Kakar said that there has been an increase in terror incidents in Pakistan since the interim Afghan government came to power in 2021. He linked the deportation drive of illegal immigrants to counter-terrorism actions. He mentioned that there has been a 60% increase in terror incidents and a 500% rise in suicide attacks in Pakistan since the establishment of the interim Afghan government in August 2021. The government has initiated a nationwide operation to deport illegal foreign nationals after the Nov 1 ultimatum to leave Pakistan voluntarily expired.
Of the more than four million Afghans living in Pakistan, the government estimates 1.7 million are undocumented. The decision had prompted criticism from Afghanistan and several other quarters, while the caretakers refused to budge from the deadline. Last month, the interim Punjab Information Minister had claimed that there were “24 suicide bombings in different parts of Pakistan and Afghan nationals were identified as suicide bombers in 14 such incidents”. Last week, 14 soldiers lost their lives after militants attacked two vehicles of security forces in Gwadar. Over time, there have been several other terror attacks and incidents involving Afghan nationals.
