Prince Harry Reveals His Kill Count
The excerpts Of Prince Harry’s memoir ‘Spare‘ came out and revealed his claim to have killed 25 people in Afghanistan. With this, there is a backlash not just from the commoners and fans but from Taliban leaders themselves.
Prince Harry wrote in his book that he executed the 25 Taliban fighters as if removing chess pieces from the board. He even said that these deaths neither made him feel proud nor ashamed. This is rather a very bold statement to make for a person of his status.
“When I found myself plunged in the heat and confusion of combat I didn’t think of those 25 as people,” wrote Prince Harry. According to The Telegraph, this is the first time that he has talked about the number of people he killed. And, this information poses a lot of threat to his life and family as not only the Taliban but commoners are outraged by his merciless statement.
How Did The Taliban Respond?
A senior Taliban Anas Haqqani wrote on Twitter, “Mr. Harry! The ones you killed were not chess pieces, they were humans; they had families who were waiting for their return. Among the killers of Afghans, not many have the decency to reveal their conscience and confess to their war crimes.”
He said that he expects nothing from the International Criminal Court (ICC) because they are deaf and blind to the Prince. He hopes that people will take into account such atrocities and that the history of humanity will always remember this.
The spokesperson for the Taliban-led Afghan foreign affairs ministry, Abdul Qahar Balkhi also responded, “The western occupation of Afghanistan is truly an odious moment in human history. Comments by Prince Harry is a microcosm of the trauma experienced by Afghans at the hands of occupation forces who murdered innocents without any accountability.”
