India’s Continued Thirst for Pakistani BloodMarch 30, 2009
On January 25th this year, Pakistan’s High Commissioner to India Shahid Malik received a death threat from an Indian extremist group, threatening to bomb:
- Pakistan’s Parliament
- Pakistani High Commission in Delhi
- Major Pakistani cities
- Other targets
The threat, made by a previously unknown group ‘All India Anti-Terrorism Group’ (AIATG), prompted a strong reaction by Islamabad, which lodged a protest with New Delhi and asked for better security for the envoy.
The three-page threatening letter delivered by surface mail at Pakistan’s high commission asked the high commissioner to leave Delhi in three days or else face dire consequences.
“We don’t need to make any kind of relation and also no place for any Pakistani in our country (sic),” a person claiming to be the chief of AIATG wrote in the letter, further warning that if the threat is taken lightly “it is 200% sure” he would be killed. Additionally, the letter threatened bombing of the parliament in Islamabad, high commission in Delhi and other places in Pakistan. For this purpose, the letter said, the sub-groups of AIATG namely Students of Hinduism Movement in India and Pakistan, Students Against Terrorism, and Pride of India were already active. The letter gave 11 reasons for forming the anti-Pakistan group and said: “you can understand we have many reasons to take lethal steps towards you and your country, so tell your government that we are mad, zealot and thirsty of Pakistani blood (sic).”
The AIATG is widely believed to be a front for the Indian ‘Research & Analysis Wing’, which has a history of involvement in terrorist activities inside Pakistan.
