In spite of such reactions, the creators featured that "it is the political separation points around ethnic Pashtuns who firmly uphold the PTM that apparently stress the Pakistani express the most". This is predominantly because of the help given by Afghan Pashtun figures, including from Afghan President Ashraf Ghani.
