I hate to say it Naimul bhai but the truth is, we are only using them as a last resort. The only reason M. nabi, Zadran were bought by franchises is because of Pak players pulled out in the last minute. If the Pak players came to play, Afghan players wouldn't have been bought. Last season we didn't buy any of them. If we were all about being friendly/helping them, than teams would have gotten Nabi and Zadran regardless of who else is playing or not. We were not exactly going out of our way to help them, at that point we were desperate and decided to make the most of it by picking Afghan players.
