Social media users school Gen(r) Amjad Shoaib for defending Ehsan Ullah Ehsan during a talk show
Ehsan Ullah Ehsan claimed that he was safe and sound with his family in Turkey.
Retired Lieutenant General, Amjad Shoaib, has come under severe criticism after he defended the former spokesperson of theTaliban and prime accused in the APS Peshwar terror attacks, Ehsan Ullah Ehsan.
A few days ago the former spokesperson of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, Ehsan Ullah Ehsan managed to escape from custody after surrendering to the authorities a couple of years ago.
The former TTP spokesperson released an audio message on social media to announce his escape. Ehsan Ullah Ehsan claimed that he was safe and sound with his family in Turkey.
Speaking on the issue, the former General said that Ehsan Ullah Ehsan was never personally involved in any of the attacks and that he was just a spokesperson for the Taliban.
“Ehsan Ullah Ehsan isn’t a hardcore, he was not personally involved in Taliban terror attacks, he was only a spokesman of Taliban and amplified messages after terror attacks,” Amjad Shoaib said.
Gen (r) Amjad Shoaib shamelessly defends ex-Taliban spox Ehsanullah Ehsan, the prime accused in the APS attack, saying that he did not directly carry out attacks and was "brainwashed". In fact, it is the attackers on suicide missions who are brainwashed & not the other way round pic.twitter.com/f2TesJFwvY

Here’s how social media reacted to Amjad Shoaib remarks:
Because they are on same page and have same agenda

I won’t even bother discussing what General Amjad said. He is so intellectually challenged that it is a waste of time. Pity that our folks have to suffer this on the idiot box.

Don’t think it’s his intellectual ability that is in question, this seems to be well thought out narrative maneuvering since it’s coming out of all “defence analysts” along with the ISPR social media team, and pretty soon you’ll see mainstream journalists backing this narrative

یہ لوگ اپنے سہولت کار کیلئے اس حد تک جا سکتے ہیں
یعنی اخسان اللہ اخسان کا دفاع کرتے ہوئے یہ بات واضح ہوچکی ہیں
کہ اے پی ایس سمیت سب کھیل ان لوگوں نے خود کھیلا
کتنی بے شرم اور کتنا غیر زامہ دارانہ جواب دے رہاہیں
قوم کے قاتل کا قوم کے سامنے اس کا دفاع کرنا

The fact is that civilian rulers are brought in compromised and lack spine to stand up to the rouge generals. Look for example Imran Khan there is foreign funding case, Bani Gala’s land record and various other cases which will be used against him once he falls out of favor.

General Shoaib is a collaborator as well as abettor in all attacks done by TTP. He should be tried, prosecuted and convicted in ATC.
