Terming American and British forces as "atrocious", Jharkhand Congress MLA Irfan Ansari on Friday said that following their withdrawal from Afghanistan, the people are happy and the atmosphere is peaceful after the Taliban took control.

American, British forces real problem: Irfan
He further alleged that the British and American troops were "harassing mothers, sisters and children" in Afghanistan". Ansari while speaking to reporters on the Taliban and the situation in Afghanistan, said, "American forces are committing atrocities in Afghanistan. The truth is something else there. The Taliban and the people of Afghanistan are happy. The American forces were harassing mothers, sisters and children there. The fight is against them."

Further speaking on the issue, Ansari told ANI, "I am an Indian. What do I have to do with the Taliban or Afghanistan? I have been seeing in the media that American forces have been withdrawn from Afghanistan. The British forces have been chased away. Wherever American and British forces go, they only commit atrocities, that too to an unimaginable extent. I believe now that the American and British forces are gone, there must be peace in Afghanistan."

Strangely, Ansari fails to see the news coverage detailing the plight of Afghan nationals trying to flee the country because of the Taliban fear.
