    Pakistan triples duty on Kandahar pomegranates

    October 8, 2019

    Traders and gardeners in southern Kandahar province say Pakistan has tripled export duty on their pomegranates.

    In this regard, traders and gardeners of fresh fruit in Shah Walikot, Arghandab, Daman and Dand districts have lodged complaints with the provincial government.

    Faiz Mohammad, a grower in Shah Walikot district, told Pajhwok Afghan News that Pakistan recently tripled levy on their fresh fruits.

    He said in the past Pakistan would charge one vehicle 82,000 rupees but now it charged 242,000 rupees per vehicle.

    Traders and farmers were concerned about Pakistan’s move and the increase in levy had affected their income.

    Mohammad said grape exporters raised their voice soon after the import duty was increased, but the matter could not be addressed.

    The issue was again shared with the deputy governor on Sunday and he assured traders and gardeners of addressing their concern, he said.

    Haji Mohammad Zahir, another grower from Arghandab district, told Pajhwok that high tax was imposed on their fruits as pomegranate exports kicked off.

    He said traders and gardeners faced major problems regarding export of pomegranates. He said Pakistan always creates issues in fresh fruit seasons for them.

    Kandahar fresh fruit association head and trader Haji Nanai Agha termed the issue as a huge concern for them and urged the government to address it as soon as possible.

    A number of other traders and farmers held similar views and urged the government to address the issue.

    Very very good. Go and sell your pomegranates to India and US/NATO countries.

    The Afghan begs for Pakistani passport. The Afghan begs for a stay in Pakistan. The Afghan begs for selling their goods to Pakistan. The Afghans claims Pakistani territory. Yet the Afghan hates Pakistan.

    Anyone understand this twisted Afghan logic?

    We can ban more afghans from entering Pakistan but repatriating the other 10 million is nearly impossible. A better strategy would be to disperse and spread them throughout the whole of Pakistan. NEVER allow them to live in Afghan ghettos or congregate in one area. Then we need to educate them by PAKISTANIZING them all to become patriots of Pakistan. They should also be encouraged to marry and iterbred with us. Extinguishing anything remotely Afghan about them.

    That is a good idea, but the Afghans are here to hoist their flag in the middle of Pakistan. We have to remember one thing very clearly about Afghans. These people are fiercely anti-Pakistan. The West has for decades made false promises which they cannot deliver. The Afghan is living in a fools paradise where he thinks that greater Afghanistan is a dream come true.

    How do you deal with such a mindset?

    Point is you can't. This is EXACTLY the same delusional mindset that has made Afghanistan such a hell-hole whereby Somalia looks like Dubai compared to Afghanistan.
