Right-wing radio host and broadcaster, Glen Beck has thanked Prime Minister Imran khan and Pakistan for helping in the evacuations of stranded Afghans from the war-torn country.

Glen Beck, through his charity organization called Mercury One, has been assisting with evacuations from Afghanistan after the Taliban takeover. He praised the premier of Pakistan for being the only one who took an initiative and helped with the release and departure of three flights.

“His leadership of placing humanity before politics is a great example of inter-faith cooperation, bridged by the shared value of human compassion,” Beck said in a series of tweets and a letter.

The television presenter shared that they were desperately trying to get help from numerous leaders in political and civil society from around the world, however the “silence was shocking”. Some calls and requests received a simple yes or no, some went unanswered, he added.

“But we received an immediate response to our requests from Prime Minister Imran Khan of Pakistan, who then acted on his willingness to assist,” Glen said.

“PM Khan quickly asked his people to intervene on our behalf and was able to make the difference between life and death for those onboard the first three aircraft to leave Mazar-i-Sharif in Afghanistan with nearly a thousand civilians on board,” Beck wrote, adding that “Many of them are Americans.”

Further lauding the leadership of Pakistan’s PM, the journalist said that his “tireless leadership, supported by the military and civilian resources of Pakistan and their ability to cooperate with the Taliban, enabled the first two flights to depart Mazar-i-Sharif with FIFA female athletes and their families onboard”.

“Collectively, we transcended religious differences, political divides, national boundaries and local dynamics – it was about a humanitarian effort aimed at saving innocent victims facing certain death if left behind in a war-ravaged country,” Beck added.

“He [Premier Imran] took the lead to save innocent lives irrespective of politics, race, religion or culture,” he said. “He has been gracious with his time and never once questioned our motives.”

Glen wrote that other media outlets have their own agenda for criticizing Imran Khan over the last few days, but the leader should be recognized for the lives he helped save this weekend.

“I sincerely thank him and pray he continues to help us work to build a bridge with the common interest of protecting innocent, precious lives during this humanitarian effort,” said.

He then stressed that the United States should recognise Pakistan’s assistance at this stage, adding that “We will not forget this support that has enabled America and its allies to make good on their promises to those that helped them without pause or reflection”.
