Clarifying the fake tweets attributed to the Taliban regarding 'Jihad in Kashmir', the group on Tuesday has said that Kashmir is India's internal matter and they don't support Pakistan's 'Ghazwa-E-Hind' or 'Holy war against India'. The Taliban said that the statement does not belong to the Islamic emirate whose policy is very clear - not to interfere in the internal affairs of others.

"The statement that has been circulated in certain media regarding India does not belong to Islamic emirate," tweeted Suhail Shaheen, the spokesperson Taliban Political Office based in Doha, Qatar. He said that the "policy of Islamic emirate regarding neighbour states is very obvious that we don't interfere in the domestic issue of other countries."

He mentioned that India should cooperate with Afghan peace process.
