Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah criticised “sections of Indian Muslims celebrating the Taliban’s return to power in Afghanistan”, and called it rather dangerous. In a recent video recorded in Urdu, the actor drew distinctions between ‘Hindustani Islam’ and what is practised in other parts of the world. “Even as the Taliban’s return to power in Afghanistan is a cause for concern for the whole world, celebrations of the barbarians by some sections of Indian Muslims is no less dangerous,” Naseeruddin Shah said in a video shared on social media. He also went on to say that those who are celebrating the revival of Taliban, should question themselves.The Taliban took control of Afghanistan on August 15 after defeating government forces across the country at a speed that took the world by surprise and caught the US off guard in the middle of its withdrawal. The group was overthrown two decades ago by US-led forces for harbouring Al Qaeda which masterminded the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.Taliban leaders have claimed that this time they will respect human rights and will not allow terrorists to operate from the country
