The latest trigger came after Hamdullah Mohib, who routinely accuses Pakistan and its spy agency of supporting and directing the Taliban's in Afghanistan, charges Islamabad rejects, reported VOA.

His remarks sparked outrage among leaders in Islamabad, who denounced them, saying they "debased all norms of interstate communication."

Meanwhile, Mohib added that Pakistani tribes, including Pashtuns and Balochis are not happy with their country's government, adding that Pashtuns and Balochis are fighting for their rights.
