Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, in an interview with Matt Frei for Channel 4, talked about the rigid ban imposed by Afghanistan Taliban on girls’ education.

When asked whether he will tell them to let the girls go to school, he responded by saying that he knows Afghan character much more than anyone else in the West. “They dont like being told what to do,” Imran Khan said.

He then urged the world to engage with the Taliban, stressing that only then the group will listen to them.


He said, “If the West wants to influence them, they must mainstream them. I kept telling them to engage. If you isolate them, what influence are you going to have on them.”

“My advice is to get them involved, give them a stake in the international community so when you tell them to educate girls, they will listen to you.”


According to him, right now they react when the world questions their policy toward women.

We are heading toward martial law: Imran Khan

In the interview, the deposed prime minister said that the postponement of elections by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) is a violation of the constitution.

He said that five judges of the Supreme Court categorically said that elections should be held on April 30.

“The worry right now is that we are heading towards martial law”, said Khan.
