Turkey and Pakistan have always had their differences which were swept under the rug. For example, in Syria, there are some Pakistanis who fight in jihadist groups and even for Assad/pro-Iran/pro-Russia/anti-Turkey groups as soldiers for hire. And Pakistan directly co-operates with China to screw over Uyghurs, including deporting those who escaped back into the CCP's "loving" hands. These don't get reported much, for obvious reasons. In Afghanistan, it's gonna be interesting because if Erdogan really is gonna position himself as the anti-Taliban savior of Afghans, he'll be directly butting heads with Pakistan in the area. And this time, it's not gonna be possible to ignore Turkey and Pakistan being on opposing sides.
Pakistan has disowned them. Many Pakistanis I remember on PDF had no problem with Pakistanis fighting as Iranian proxies getting blown up by Turkish drones. Many even said their citizenships should be revoked.
Uygurs is a problem between both. Honestly how many people are willing to go against China??
When it came to problems between both it was usually swept under the rug. No side wanted to sacrifice relations between each other.
