Folk guitarist “Sparlay Rawail” gets trolled on social media.



Al Jazeera English yesterday posted an article hailing Pashtun folk band “Khymariyaan” for changing the Pashtun narrative through music. Al Jazeera English shared the article on social media with a couple of band pictures (Sparlay Rawail was in one of them). Many social media users appreciated the band’s work but some showed angered toward Sparlay Rawail. A few comments labeled him “Terrorist“.

This social media anger was because of his family’s involvement in far-left movements including PTM which was blacklisted by EU DisInfo Lab as an Indian funded organization.

His mother “Ismat Shahjahan” is a politician and member of Awami Workers’ Party, Women Democratic Front, and Pashtun Tahafuz Movement. A social media user claimed that She is the former side-role actress who worked in the British drama serial “Trafik”.
