If videos posted on YouTube and Twitter are any indication, Afghans are as agitated after Pulwama attack as most Indians.
From giving threats of an impending tsunami that would devastate Pakistan to mocking Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, these videos have come up after the Pulwama attack in Jammu & Kashmir.
Posted with the warning of a “befitting” reply to Pakistan, these videos show how emotions are running high in Afghanistan after the attack.
“India and Pakistan are together a punch to Pakistan. India will retaliate strongly and Pakistan will suffer,” says a sometimes-happy-sometimes-angry ‘Afghan Bhaijaan’ in a 13-minute long video.
With strategically placed photos, politoons and a rather melodramatic background tune, Afghan Bhaijaan says it is time for a befitting reply to Pakistan.
He slams both ISI and Pakistani military and calls them bad people.
“Pakistan-sponsored terrorism has resulted in death of innocent people,” he adds as he shows a closed fist to the camera offering support to his Indian ‘bhaijaans’. The video, posted on YouTube on February 15 after the Pulwama terror attack, has since gone viral with over 5.5 lakh views and around 23,000 comments.
Afghan Bhaijaan is not an isolated case. His is one of the many YouTube channels from Afghanistan that seem to have been bitten by the hysteria bug on social media.
Another Afghan national posted a similar video on ‘Words Era’ YouTube channel on February 21.
In a video titled ‘Afghani Patthan Bhai’s Reply on India’, a youth mocks Pakistan and breaks into periodic laughter. Behind him are the words ‘Thank you India’ and ‘Afghan Bhaijaan’ in yellow undertones.
Calling India a peace-loving nation, the ‘Pathan bhai’ asks Pakistan to think why tourists fear to visit their country which “harbours terrorists”. He asks India not to worry about Pakistan, which he says is no threat at all. The video has received over 20,000 views so far.
