Are Hindu Extremists Going To Sabotage This Year’s Commonwealth Games In India?

January 14, 2010

Sumayya Chawla | PKKH Editorial Team

After reports of threats made by the Hindu Extremist party, Shiv Sena, against the Australian cricket team, the Australian government and media are now very concerned about the safety of their players in India. So they should be. This threat was issued in reaction to incidents of random violent attacks against Indian nationals in some Australian cities. While the concern of the Indian government about the safety of its citizens is justified, it should be noted that Shiv Sena or the Army of Lord Shiva, is the same right wing Hindu extremist political party that has over the past years orchestrated violence against minorities in India, intimidated political opponents and carried out a reign of terror and intimidation against anyone who dares to speak against their hate-mongering leader Mr. Bal Thackeray. Hence if Bal Thackeray has issued a threat against the visitors, it is indeed a worrisome development for the international community in terms of the security of their players during the Commonwealth games which are to be held in India this year. There is a long list of heinous acts of violence that have been perpetrated by Hindu extremist parties like Shiv Sena for decades in India.

The objectives of fake “flogging video” of Swat

It has been established that fake Swat flogging video was a failed stunt by our western enemies having vested interests to undermine Islam, demoralize Muslims and create chaos in Pakistan to provide an excuse to attack Pakistani territories for neutralizing its nuclear arsenal — that is, the only Islamic country with nukes.

Following videos pertain to crimes against women and humanity happening in world’s two leading democracies and should enable us to think why these crimes were NOT given such a hype by international media and western countries as much a fake video of Swat was used to defame Islam and Pakistan.

Hindu Extremism and the Threat to Pakistan

Hindu Radicals Pose Terrorist Challenge to the Sub-Continent

February 15, 2009

india1The charge sheet filed in a Mumbai court on January 20 against 11 members of the radical Hindu group Abhinav Bharat – including a serving Military Intelligence officer, a retired Indian Army Major, and nine other activists – has brought the growing landscape of Hindu terrorist cells in India into the open (The Hindu, January 21).

In the last decade a few radical Hindu groups have carried out systematic hate campaigns against minority communities, particularly India’s 150 million Muslims, including mob violence (as in Gujarat in 2002) and bombings (such as the 2004 blast in Nanded, Maharashtra). The September 29, 2008, Malegaon bomb attack in which the Hindu militants are charged was the first sophisticated bombing to be planned and executed by a Hindu terrorist group (Times of India, January 20).

Pursuing the Hindu Rashtra

The Malegaon bombing was intended to be the first of a series of attacks the group had planned throughout India to establish a “Hindu Rashtra,” or Hindu India. The 4,528-page charge sheet, citing 389 witnesses, accused Lieutenant Colonel Shrikant Prasad Purohit, retired Major Ramesh Upadhyay, self-styled religious preachers Sadhvi Pragnya Singh and Dayanand Pandey (a.k.a. Swami Amritanand), and others of executing a bomb blast in Malegaon, a Muslim-dominated city in Maharashtra, one of India’s prosperous west coast states. The bomb, strapped to a motorcycle, killed six persons and injured more than 70. The accused have been charged under the Maharashtra Control of Organized Crime Act (MCOCA), a tough law that has survived criticism while other severe laws fell after intense public scrutiny.

To India: End The Charade

February 10, 2009

Just as we had predicted, the Mumbai Police has planted a story in the Indian media today claiming Ajmal Kassab’s life is in danger from Dawood Ibrahim’s gang, allegedly linked to Pakistani Intelligence services.

The Times of India claims, ‘Sources from the intelligence agencies said that underworld don Chhota Shakeel, a close aide of Dawood Ibrahim, has been given a contract to kill Kasab. According to an intelligence sources, the plot came to light on January 29.’

PKKH originally reported ‘Ajmal Kassab’s’ death on January 27th, putting the Indian authorities on the backfoot. The denials came thick and fast. The Times of India even went to the extent of producing an old photograph of Kassab and, bizzarely, claiming to have ‘nailed Pakistan’s lies’.

We also reported, on January 31st:

Despite the denial by Indian authorities, PKKH understands through its sources in Mumbai that the lone gunman arrested in the wake of the Mumbai attacks and identified since as ‘Amir Ajmal Kassab’ has been dead for over two weeks.

The Mumbai Police had originally intended to announce his death this week – in a supposed ’shootout’ at the Arthur road jail – pinning the blame on ‘Pakistan-controlled gangsters’ with links to Dawood Ibrahim.

If Ajmal Kassab is indeed alive, as the Indian authorities continue to try and convince us, why has he not been allowed access to? Bring him in front of the media, let the truth be known.

Kassab: New Photo, New Questions.

February 4, 2009

“Pakistan’s Claims Fall Flat” – screams the headline on Times of India this morning.

‘Nailing Pakistan’s claims that Ajmal Kasab was ‘dead’, TV channel Times Now has got access to the latest pictures of the lone surviving terrorist of the November 26, Mumbai attacks.’ – it says.

Strange that, when on the very same page they admit “There is, however, no clear indication about when this picture was taken or where, because the terrorist is not dressed in any prison gear, casually clad in a t-shirt and brown pants. ” [link]

thumbcmsSo basically, the photograph labelled as ‘latest’ by TOI could well have been taken weeks ago, if not months (if reports of his kidnapping from Nepal in 2006 are to be believed.)

Times of India had previously linked PKKH to the ISI – claiming that ‘Reports which security sources suspect to have been planted by Pakistani official agencies, Islamabad alleges that captured Mumbai terrorist Ajmal Amir Kasab is actually dead.’

Needless to say, it is the latest example of extremely poor and lazy journalism by a publication that is read by millions in India and is one of the leading newspapers worldwide in terms of circulation figures.

It seems as if the Indian media has taken a leaf out of Bollywood’s book – which thrives on the avoidance of reality by absorption of the mind in entertainment or imaginative situations / activities – in coming up with ‘reports’ that are far, far from reality.

UPDATE: CNN IBN with the same claims as TOI – Call it an ‘Exclusive!’

CNN-IBN are reporting on the same story, and claiming that the above photograph has been ‘exclusively made available to CNN-IBN by highly placed sources in the Mumbai’. LINK

Bizzarely, both the reports in TOI and CNN-IBN have failed to put a date on this photograph, which means they could well have been taken immediately after Kassab’s ‘arrest’.

Surprise Surprise: Another ‘Kassab’ No Show

February 2, 2009

Further to PKKH’s exclusive report last week, we can now confirm that the Mumbai Police have once again failed to produce Ajmal ‘Kassab’ in court today (February 2nd, 2009).

The Mumbai Police has previously failed to produce Kassab in court TWICE – on December 11th and more recently on January 19th.

Indian authorities have repeatedly denied media access to Ajmal Kassab and have turned down requests from the Pakistani authorities for a DNA sample for Kassab. This is consistent with the inability of the Indian authorities to provide any information (finger prints, DNA) of the other nine alleged perpetrators of the Mumbai Attacks.

PKKH reported earlier after recieving information from sources in Mumbai, that Ajmal Kassab no longer exists. [Read Full Report]

It is also worthwhile to note that during January 15th to 20th, a number of stories were planted in the Indian media by the Indian security agencies in an attempt to sound out the possibility of announcing Kassab’s death in a “Pakistani controlled gang murdering Kassab” scenario – that is, the second episode of Mumbai drama.

Indian Response to PKKH Report on Kasab’s Death

January 31, 2009

In response to PakistanKaKhudaHafiz (PKKH)’s exclusive report about Kassab’s death, the Maharashtra government on Friday said the lone terrorist arrested in 26/11 Mumbai attacks is very much alive.

“Kassab is in Mumbai police custody and very much alive,” state Home Minister Jayant Patil said. [Rediff]

In addition to the Home Minister, the Mumbai Police Commissioner also denied the reports of Kassab’s death.

“Kassab is safe in our custody,” Police Commissioner Hasan Gafoor told PTI.

PKKH understands that Mumbai Police had originally intended to announce his death this week – in a supposed ‘shootout’ at the Arthur road jail – pinning the blame on ‘Pakistan-controlled gangsters’ with links to Dawood Ibrahim.

Ajmal Kassab: Dead

January 27, 2009

PakistanKaKhudaHafiz Exclusive

The lone captured terrorist and alleged Pakistani citizen Ajmal Kassab is dead, sources tell PKKH. Whether he was killed in custody immediately after the Mumbai attacks or in recent days is yet to be confirmed.

On Monday 19th January, Kassab was remanded in police custody until February 2nd. It is important to note that he was not brought to court on this occasion.

Earlier, police in Mumbai had backed off of plans to produce Kasab in court on Thursday December 11th for a routine hearing, citing security concerns.

Indian authorities have repeatedly denied media access to Ajmal Kassab and have turned down requests from the Pakistani authorities for a DNA sample for Kassab. This is consistent with the inability of the Indian authorities to provide any information (finger prints, DNA) of the other nine alleged perpetrators of the Mumbai Attacks. 

Due to the nature of this information and the lack of verifiable sources, we are not able to confirm or dismiss the reports of Kassab’s death at the moment. However, India’s reluctance to allow the Pakistani authorities access to Kassab and refusal to carry out a joint investigation certainly raises questions about the authenticity of Indian claims.

On a separate note, the leading Dutch daily newspaper ‘De Telegraaf’ reports that the Indian authorities will be investigating the role of right-wing politicians in Mumbai massacre. It also reports that Ajmal Kassab was already under arrest at the time of the Mumbai attacks, for an unrelated crime. Below is a rough translation from the article in ‘De Telegraaf’:

“There are indications that Indian politicians and Hindu extremists are behind the attacks in Mumbai last November. It is thought that statesmen of Maharashtra wanted to get rid of the head of the anti-terrorism bureau, Hermant Karkare, whilst putting the blame on Pakistan as reported by Radiance, a weekly magazine. Hemant Karkare was one of the 163 victims killed during the attacks. Karkare was investigating the hindu terrorist group Hindutva suspected to be planning an attack and had received death threats. An independent investigation is underway to find the politicians who demanded Karkare’s resignation and which of them has provided financial means for the attacks. Remarkably, the only gunman who was captured alive, a Pakistani, was already serving a sentence in jail for another crime.”

The curious case of Karkare, Salaskar and Kaamte

December 26, 2008

PakistanKaKhudaHafiz.com

42-21302153

After a long time, AR Antulay has spoken, and he has shaken the Mumbai Police version of the 26th November terror attack.

If there is a question mark over who sent Karkare literally to his death, and this is what the Minority Affairs Minister essentially said, than there is a question mark about Kasab’s statement that Ismail and he killed Hemant Karkare, Vijay Salaskar and Ashok Kaamte — which means there is a question mark over the entire Police version of the 26th November attack as such.

Hindu Fundamentalism

ALMOST anything is digestible in the heat of the moment.

When Mumbai came under attack, most of Pakistan mourned as well. And why not, for who other than Pakistanis have been most brutalised by terrorism in the 21st century? We understand the pain, the trauma, the scarring of a collective psyche. When Indian leaders resorted to bellicosity, and when the media in that country went hysterical, most Pakistanis said let it be, they need to express their grief. Extreme anguish and irrationality can go hand in hand, and that is perfectly understandable even at a remove. But the dust has settled now and it is time to talk sense.

Samjhauta 2 – Story of a faked letter

December 24, 2008

Dan Qayyum | PakistanKaKhudaHafiz.com

We reported yesterday how Interpol questioned the lack of evidence provided by India, mirroring Pakistan’s official stance.

Despite harping on about having given Pakistan proof – the reality is that the ‘evidence’ so far presented amounts to ONE letter, a confession statement given to the police, which wouldn’t even be accepted as evidence in Indian courts as per the Indian Penal code.

Did ‘Kasab’ even write this letter?!

JANG has revealed some interesting facts about the letter handed over to Pakistan by India, allegedly written by Ajmal Amir Kasab (Qasab/Kasav/Ajmal Amin/Mohammad Ajmal).

Indian diplomatic staff in Pakistan distributed copies of the letter to selected journalists, and requested them to ‘try and prove that Ajmal belongs to Pakistan’. Some of these journalists have had close links with Indian missions in Pakistan and abroad.

The letter itself is dated ‘December 19th’ – which is weird considering the Indian media had been reporting about this letter since as early as December 13th. (We have been able to locate this news report from the 15th talking about the letter)

Additionally, the letter (written in Urdu script) contains atleast 3 words which are Hindi.

Sources say there are a few other interesting mistakes in the letter which will be revelaed ‘at the appropriate time’.

Jang also reports that Pakistan plans to take a strong position internationally and discredit Indian claims by revealing the contents of this letter.
1045

Despite repeated requests, India has FAILED to provide ANY real evidence linking any Pakistan national to the attacks in Mumbai. Could it be because there isn’t any to begin with?

Their attempt to attribute a confessional letter to the captured terrorist has fallen on its arse. Not to forget the letter wouldn’t have stood in any court anywhere in the world as evidence anyway.

Is this another case of Hindu Extremists carrying out mass murder and pointing the finger at Pakistan, as they did with Samjhauta Express and Malegaon? Both of those were initially blamed on Lashkar-e-Taiba and the ISI. Wonder where the ATS chief who investigated those terrorist attacks is now.

Oh thats right, he was conveniently shot dead along with his team as soon as the Mumbai drama began. But that is something you can’t dare question in the Great Indian Democracy™.

Afterall, Hindu Terrorism is a myth, don’t you know?

Its all in the Perception

December 22, 2008

Recently, the Indian Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh labeled Pakistan to be the ‘epicenter of terrorism’. Is it true or a deliberate campaign to manufacture negative perceptions is in full swing?

One way to answer the question is through a rhetorical question: Do all the terrorists hold Pakistani identity cards, or are trained in Pakistan? Not at all! If the Indians choose to suffer from selective amnesia over their self-indulgences in terrorism (including state terrorism) then a brief introspective look should joggle their memories.

Since the Mumbai attacks, Indians are crying, the ‘sky is falling.’ As deplorable as the attacks were, they pale when compared to the Indian state terrorism and the pogroms regularly carried out by the Hindu extremists; which are arguably much worse than the isolated cases of terrorism. But God forbid if even a single crocodile tear is wasted on the victims of Indian sponsored terrorism, both within and outside India. Could it be true that India also has many skeletons in its closet that needs to be exposed too? At the forefront of Indian terrorism is its infamous intelligence agency, Research and Analysis Wing (RAW).

But before visiting the memory lanes, it might be prudent to familiarize ourselves with the definition of terrorism. The Webster’s dictionary defines ‘terrorism’ as: “the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion.”

Following are some of most glaring examples of Indian terrorism:

UT01086571. In 1971, at the cost of thousands of deaths, India maliciously severed Pakistan.
2. In June 1984, during the Operation Blue Star, Indian army massacred over 7,000 Sikhs.
3. In November 1984, in New Delhi well over 3,000 Sikhs were cut to pieces by the Hindu terrorists.
4. In 1992, Hindu terrorist groups, such as VHP and Bajrang Dal, demolished the 500 years old Babri Masjid.
5. Since early 1990s, the Indian military systematically exterminated close to 80,000 Kashmiri Muslims.
6. During the last 20 years alone, thousands of Christians are butchered by the Hindu terrorists. A gruesome example of such atrocities stood out when Bajrang Dal’s terrorists burnt alive the Australian missionary and his two young sons.
7. In 2002, Hindu terrorists slaughtered some 2,000 Muslims in Gujarat. Sickening confessions of the VHP’s leaders (e.g. Babu Bajrangi’s), responsible for the attacks, are available on the YouTube.
8. In 2007, over 60 Pakistanis were burnt alive in India. The gruesome massacre was the handy work of Bajrang Dal’s terrorist Lt Col Prasad Shrikant Purohit.
9. A brainchild of terrorist RAW, the globally known terrorist organization Tamil Tigers/LTTE was founded in 1972. To this day Tamils are funded, trained and armed by RAW. Its cadre are trained and provided safe-heavens in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
10. Just last September, VHP terrorists destroyed dozens of Christian churches. They also set a Christian orphanage on fire, and burned to death a 20-year-old Christian teacher.

Pick any of US State Department report on the Religious Freedom in India; one realizes, religious minorities in India had been systematically persecuted far worse than in rest of the world put together. The reports squarely blame the Hindu terrorist groups, like BJP, RSS, VHP and Bajrang Dal for gross human rights violations of the minorities (including Muslims, Christians, Sikhs and Dalits). If that’s not terrorism, then what is?

Since 1968, RAW had been intimately involved in everything that could be considered as terrorism. Its dirty deeds include, but not limited to: drugs trafficking, human trafficking, arms trafficking, coup d’etat in foreign nations, subversive activities, assassinations, nuclear proliferation, and downright recruiting, funding and training of exporting terrorists.

Some of feathers in RAW’s cap are: Creation and support of Mukti Bahini. Mujibur Rahman’s assassination. Subversive activities and flagrant spread of terrorism in Sri Lanka. Subversive activities in the Raj of Sikkim. Could it be mere coincidence that dozen or so Indian consulates dot the Pakistani border with Afghanistan? RAW established terrorist training camps in Afghanistan to spread terrorism in Pakistan in general, and in specific to infiltrate terrorists in Balochistan and NWFP. Cultivated, nurtured and armed Burmese terrorist groups like the Kachin Independence Army. Subversive activities in Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. Nuclear proliferation activities include smuggleing of flow meter units, and feed & withdrawal equipment for the nuclear centrifuge cascades. CIA mole in RAW, Rabinder Singh, who defected to the US with documentary evidence, confirmed RAW’s infatuation with terrorism.

Some Indian Chanakyas are working overtime to capitalize on the Mumbai tragedy by manufacturing a supposed war of civilizations. They want to divide the civilized world between the so-called murderous Muslims and a hapless troika of Hindus, Jews and Christians. If the objective of the Mumbai terrorists was to take on the besieged troika, they must have been out of their minds to spend so many resources to take on the Christians and Jews in India when they could have easily killed many more in Afghanistan, where all the help and resources are readily available.

DWF15-672667Ironically, despite the bloodletting of hundred of thousands of minorities and foreign nationals, not a single Hindu or RAW terrorist could be found on UN’s, EU’s or even on US lists of terrorists. Conspicuously, not a peep could be heard from the so-called fair and balanced Indian and Western media, neither over the export of terrorism or the genocides that routinely take place in India.

During the last three decades, Pakistan has experienced more acts of terrorism than rest of the world put together. More Pakistanis had fallen to the terrorist attacks then rest of the world together. More Pakistani soldiers have sacrificed their lives fighting the terrorists (on RAW’s payroll) then all the NATO put together. Naturally, one has to wonder, is the bad reputation systematically forced upon Pakistan: a reality or a perception hyped by the enemies of Pakistan; especially, when their own record is arguably much worst?

India’s problems lie within

December 22, 2008

The country’s biggest threat to peace is its treatment of Indian Muslims

Suhail Haleem | Guardian, UK

When the emotionally-charged stand-off between India and Pakistaneases, and the dust settles on the Mumbai attacks, perhaps it would be wise for India’s political leadership to do a bit of soul-searching.

Terror groups based in Pakistan may have been involved in this attack on India’s commercial capital, and for all we know, Pakistan’s notorious Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) may have trained them or provided logistical support, but it would be little more than political expediency to blame Islamabad for all that is not well within India’s borders.

It does not require great military acumen to see that India is at war with itself. Kashmir has been on the boil for two decades and India’s north-eastern states for many more, but it is the treatment of its minorities that lies at the heart of some of India’s most dangerous problems.

Forget A.R. Antulay, Javed Akhtar can learn from Michael Moore

December 22, 2008

Film lyricist Javed Akhtar and his actor wife Shabana Azmi were usually known for questioning the ‘official account’ on any number of burning issues. But after Mumbai, even they find themselves aligned with the official theory on what happened in Mumbai and how. Ironically for them Minorities Affairs Minister Abdul Rehman Antulay, known otherwise as the system’s man, has become the cheerleader of the people who have heaps of questions to ask about Mumbai. Mr Akhtar (and the pliant media) believes Mr Antulay should resign for raising doubts about the way the head of Mumbai’s Anti-Terror Squad (ATS) Hemant Karkare was killed during the Mumbai attacks. But the liberals and ordinary people, including a good many Muslims, are applauding Mr Antulay for asking the questions that are needed at worst of times in any democracy.

Push Our Opinion Makers To Get Tough

December 21, 2008

In his article, India’s hysterical response to Mumbai carnage, published by PakistanThinkTank.org, Brig. Gen.Asif Haroon Raja (Retd.) explains how a few media commentators and outlets filled the void created by the current Pakistani government in responding to Indian arrogance. We want to add to this list. If you are in contact with Pakistani politicians, journalists, and television news executives/anchors/hosts, and radio hosts, please ask them to stop being apologetic, see the Indian arrogance for what it is, and pressure our government to show some spine:

ahmedhamid“Uncalled for belligerence was provocative and sickening but it is to the credit of Pakistani leaders and media that the maddening jibes were absorbed coolly. Sanity prevailed throughout the heightened crisis period and none got provoked to counter the ever increasing antagonism. It was only when Indian hawks persisted with their truculence that one to two media channels decided to launch a small counter stroke which flabbergasted the Indians. The few brave ones were Zaid Hamid, Ahmed Quraishi, Mubasher Luqman, Shireen Mazari, Lt Gen Hameed Gul, Qazi Hussain Ahmed, leading PML-N leaders and some others.

While Pakistan leaders are eager to ease tensions and revert to peaceful co-existence policy envisaged in Composite Dialogue, Indian leaders influenced by the hawks within establishment, military and religious cadres are in no mood to reciprocate. They are finding excuses to maximise pressure and put Pakistan in the dock. Karachi riots were triggered to add to the pressure. The Indian air force has been put on high alert and Pakistan’s air space violated at two points on night of 13 December to test the response of Pakistan. A message was given that if the nominated accused were not handed over it would hit suspected targets like Muredke, HQ of Jamaat-ud Daawa headed by Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, on the pattern of US drone attacks.”

Freedom of Expression Under Attack in India

December 20, 2008

Dan Qayyum | PakistanKaKhudaHafiz.com

42-20835659Amaresh Misra explains on Geo TV’s ‘Crisis Cell’ how some Politicians with links to Sangh Parivar, as well as pro US/Israel politicians from the Congress Party are using India’s English Language media (CNN IBN, NDTV) to suppress any voice that questions the official (and the media’s) version of what went on in Mumbai.

Some Marathi and Urdu newspapers had reported eyewitness accounts contradicting the official story in the days following the attacks – however those stories were drowned out by campaign against Pakistan led by the NDTV and CNN-IBN.

Union Minorities Affairs Minister A R Antulay who called for an investigation into Hemant Karkare’s assasination, has been forced to resign, after daring to question the official story.

People like Arundhati Roy and Amaresh Misra just two out of many patriotic Indians who can see the US gameplan and prefer their country to stand in the face of US imperialism rather than turn into their client state and a junior ally. They want peaceful and friendly relations with Pakistan and at the same time believe that the two neighbours should work together to eradicate terrorism, poverty, and other key issues affecting the people.

These people need to be given a voice.

Victims of India

It is surprising why there was no such outcry when just two months back VHP picked up Christians from Orissa and started killing them. A nun was gang raped which went “unnoticed” by the police. Isn’t it a terror attack too, so why didn’t we see the same passion or anger among people who are demanding action in the Mumbai terror attacks? Is it because Khandamal took place at poverty stricken Orissa and not at the elite parts of Bombay. Why didn’t the same people demanding action against the Mumbai terror attacks not demand the ban of Vishwa Hindu Parishad?

We’re not that alone, actually.

December 18, 2008

DWF15-1160734

Times of India | West Asia may not take the wind out of the sails of India’s diplomatic campaign against Pakistan, but it is certainly not being of any help either. In fact, if media reports are any indication, several countries in the region are getting more and more apprehensive about India’s conduct in the aftermath of the Mumbai attacks.

What may also worry India is the growing perception that Pakistan itself is the victim of the crisis and that India is on its way to joining the so-called unholy nexus comprising the US, UK and Israel. It wouldn’t be wrong to state, going by the popular mood, that most of the countries have not just fallen for Pakistan’s `babe in the woods’ appearance but have also been critical of India’s stand vis-a-vis its proximity to the US.

Saudi Arabia and Iran are two countries where the media seems to have already made up its mind that India has joined hands with the US and Israel. “The Indian brother may have already given the Americans a mandate to launch wars in the Indian subcontinent, whose management will be India’s responsibility, since it is possessed by the same `vengeance obsession’ that struck the Americans in 2001,” said the influential Saudi daily Al Hayat in a recent editorial.

The media in Iran too seems to have taken a position diametrically opposite to India’s stated stand. President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, of course, had said immediately after the attacks that it might have been the handiwork of people from outside the region. Iranian newspaper Kayhan, in fact, has gone to the extent of suggesting that the attacks were staged together by India, Israel, US and UK.

The media has also expressed resentment against attempts by the US to draw parallels between Mumbai and 9/11. “If there is a connection between the Mumbai attacks and those of September 11, it is to be found in the American response. Seven months after planes flew into the World Trade Center and Pentagon, Rice described those tragic events as `an enormous opportunity’ to `create a new balance of power’. Washington now sees a similar opportunity arising from the carnage in India to pursue its interests in South Asia,” said Islamic Republic New Agency which is run by the Iran government.

Sadly for India, there have been few editorials, if any, laying the blame on Pakistan for the attacks. On the contrary, many have underlying sympathy for Pakistan. “Terrorism also threatens Pakistan’s very existence, and directly or indirectly harms its sovereignty over its territory, every time the US attacks what Washington claims is a `terrorist’ target within Pakistan. India is furious while Pakistan, already in an extremely complex economic predicament, definitely needs no more crises to add to its existing ones,” stated Saudi’s Al Madina in an editorial.

West Asia is another dampener for India after China where People’s Daily, the government’s official mouthpiece, had described the Mumbai attacks as the handiwork of Hindus. The report had claimed that the terrorists were wearing a sacred thread around their wrists and this proved that they were Hindus.

Hezbollah in Lebanon had earlier warned India against joining the Americans and Israelis. The organisation has blamed Takfiri sect of Sunni Muslims for the attack. Nevertheless, it went on to state that India’s stand should be independent of “the hegemony of the arrogant”. “We have noted that these kinds of attacks that struck India are often a prelude to US security and military interference that confiscates the sovereignty of states at the pretext of fighting terrorism. These attacks will be an opportunity for the US administration to blackmail both Pakistan and India and infringe on their sovereignty,” it said in an official statement.

Mumbai: Murky Piece Of A Tangled Web

December 18, 2008

Terrell E. Arnold | Rense.com

42-21316269Why it took so long to contain this attack of only ten shooters will remain a serious question, but the terrorists, only one of whom was taken alive, were obviously well prepared. They separated, attacked at least five separate sites, knew their way around the places they assaulted, and in some degree were aided by the early unwillingness of police to shoot back. Moreover, the terrorists apparently came prepared for the long haul with ample supplies of ammunition and bags of sliced almonds to stave off hunger. In that respect they did not behave like martyrs, although they certainly had reason to expect death. But the puzzles they left behind are certainly much larger than life.

The official Indian narrative, at least as of now, is that the terrorists were members of a Pakistani group called Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT). That group is usually associated with the half-century old Indo-Pak struggle for Jammu and Kashmir, and it reportedly has a suicide group called the fidayeen. However, the principle link of the Mumbai attacks to the LeT is the confession of the surviving member of the group of ten. That statement appears to have been obtained after several hours of interrogation by Indian authorities who have no qualms about torture, and therefore the smooth and complete story that emerged could be as much if not more a matter of what he was led to say rather than what he confessed. We are unlikely to know.

Pakistani authorities have not bought the story, and they have asked for proof. Meanwhile, they have rounded up a number of LeT members, but they have refused an Indian request to extradite the Let members to India. The LeT prisoners, say Pakistani authorities, will be dealt with under Pakistani law.

There are many loose ends. Continue Reading…

US Report Exposes RAW Terrorism

December 18, 2008

raw_01Federation of American Scientists is a privately funded non-profit policy organisation, whose Board of Sponsors includes 55 American Nobel laureates. FAS was originally founded as the Federation of Atomic Scientists in 1945 by members of the Manhattan Project, who produced the first atomic bomb. According to a sensational report by FAS, RAW is extensively engaged in disinformation campaigns, espionage, sabotage and terrorism against Pakistan and other neighboring countries. It also gives details of the truly alarming involvement of RAW in terrorist activities in Pakistan.

The report reveals the involvement of RAW in Bangladesh dating from the 1960s, when it promoted dissatisfaction against Pakistan in the then East Pakistan, including funding Mujibur Rahman’s general election in 1970 and providing training and arming to the Mukti Bahini. The report claims an estimated 35,000 RAW agents have entered Pakistan at various times between 1983-99, with 12,000 having worked in the past or working presently in Sindh, 10,000 in Punjab 8,000 in North West Frontier Province and 5,000 in Balochistan. “As many as 40 terrorist camps are currently operating at Rajasthan, East Punjab, [occupied] Kashmir, Uttar Pradesh and other parts of India and are run by RAW’s Special Service Bureau [SSB],” the report reveals. The report further confirms that throughout the Afghan War, RAW was responsible for the planning and execution of terrorist activities in Pakistan to deter Islamabad from supporting the Afghan liberation movement against India’s ally, the Soviet Union.

“The assistance provided to RAW by the KGB enabled RAW to arrange terrorist attacks in Pakistani cities throughout the Afghan War,” the report says. “The defeat of the Soviet Union in Afghanistan did not end the role of RAW in Pakistan, as it established training camps in East Punjab, [occupied] Kashmir, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan where agents are trained for terrorist activities,” it reveals.

Mumbai Terror: The Monster in the Mirror

December 14, 2008

Mumbai Was Not Our 9/11

42-21306738The Mumbai attacks have been dubbed ‘India’s 9/11′, and there are calls for a 9/11-style response, including an attack on Pakistan. Instead, the country must fight terrorism with justice, or face civil war.

November isn’t September, 2008 isn’t 2001, Pakistan isn’t Afghanistan and India isn’t America. So perhaps we should reclaim our tragedy and pick through the debris with our own brains and our own broken hearts so that we can arrive at our own conclusions.

The Mumbai attacks are only the most recent of a spate of terrorist attacks on Indian towns and cities this year. Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Delhi, Guwahati, Jaipur and Malegaon have all seen serial bomb blasts in which hundreds of ordinary people have been killed and wounded. If the police are right about the people they have arrested as suspects, both Hindu and Muslim, all Indian nationals, it obviously indicates that something’s going very badly wrong in this country.

Pakistan To Demand Handing Over Of Col. Purohit From India

December 12, 2008

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan—The Government of Pakistan is set to demand the extradition of Col. Shrikant Purohit of the Indian Army, the first serving Indian Army officer arrested for terrorism and the main accused in the 2007 Samjhauta Express inferno, the ‘friendship’ train, in which 69 Pakistani passengers, returning from India to Pakistan, were burned alive.

Top 3 Indian Terrorists Wanted In Pakistan

SM Iqbal

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan—The Zardari-Gilani government, which is trying to win favor with both Washington and New Delhi, is ignoring Indian terrorists directly involved in terrorism inside Pakistan and against Pakistani citizens.

Indian Terrorist Number One: L. K. Advani
Mr. L. K. Advani is wanted in Pakistan in a criminal case in FIR No. 4/1948 registered at a police station in the Pakistani city Hyderabad. Fifteen persons were arrested and tried and convicted by a special court.

Exchange of prisoner was made under Transfer of Prisoners Act, 1949. Mr. Advani, a supposed commander of RSS, is listed as absconder. There were 38 accused persons listed in the charge sheet.

Indian Terrorist Number Two: Col. Srikant Purohit
Col. Purohit was involved in Malegaon bombing, Samjhota Express and three other similar incidents probed by ATS India and set to engage Hindus for recruitment for the purpose of terrorism in Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Indian Terrorist Number Three: Bal Thackeray
Mr. Bal Tahckery is running the most powerful underworld Hindu terrorist organization. He is on record to having invited Hindus to mobilize and raise suicide squads to attacks Indian Muslims. He talks against Pakistan with impunity and provides every help to Hindu militants to operate against Pakistan.

There are several Mumbai based operatives in Dubai who are running hotels and could easily be nabbed by Pakistani spy agencies, bundled and smuggled to Pakistan to face trial.

 

Discredible India

These 10 young men had the Indian Police, Black Cat Team and army by their necks for three days, stupidity is one vice which should not be attributed to them. Take one look at the terrorist caught on camera; he could pass for a south Indian low budget film hero, clean shaven and all. Definitely not a Jihadi fighting in the name of Allah. Here is why there is no logical reason for this to be Lashker-e-Taeeba’s job, no matter what absurd proof the Indians may come up with.

Ask Mrs. Karkare: Was It Lashker or BJP?

The timing of Mumbai terror is well planned, just before state elections! So who will reap the benefit? Lashkar-e-Taiba or BJP? If ISI did it, then they must be stupid. And they are not.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan—If the America’s lapdogs in the Pakistani government had any brains, they would have demanded that Mrs. Hemant Karkare, the wife of the Indian antiterrorism chief killed in the very first hours of Mumbai attack be allowed to speak up. Also, a retired Indian army officer, a close friend was told by Karkare in writing a few hours before he was killed that his life was under threat by Hindu terrorists and their handlers in the Indian military intelligence. Both Mr. Karkare and the secret letter written by her husband have been suppressed.

Creating an “Arc of Crisis”: The Destabilization of the Middle East and Central Asia

December 10, 2008

The Mumbai Attacks and the “Strategy of Tension”

42-21303163The recent attacks in Mumbai, while largely blamed on Pakistan’s state-sponsored militant groups, represent the latest phase in a far more complex and long-term “strategy of tension” in the region; being employed by the Anglo-American-Israeli Axis to ultimately divide and conquer the Middle East and Central Asia. The aim is destabilization of the region, subversion and acquiescence of the region’s countries, and control of its economies, all in the name of preserving the West’s hegemony over the “Arc of Crisis.”

The attacks in India are not an isolated event, unrelated to growing tensions in the region. They are part of a processof unfolding chaos that threatens to engulf an entire region, stretching from the Horn of Africa to India: the “Arc of Crisis,” as it has been known in the past.

The motives and modus operandi of the attackers must be examined and questioned, and before quickly asserting blame to Pakistan, it is necessary to step back and review:

Who benefits? Who had the means? Who had to motive? In whose interest is it to destabilize the region? Ultimately, the roles of the United States, Israel and Great Britain must be submitted to closer scrutiny.
