Former refugee, Dr Mohammad Haqmal has insisted that the Taliban group be given a chance to “prove” they have changed. However, his claims have caused fury on Social media.

Another user commented: “How many people have to suffer for you to be satisfied and say that enough is enough?”
Another wrote: “Well early reports of looting, murder, theft and mayhem suggest they haven’t changed! Unless he knows something we don’t….”
