Times of India

“Mind your own business”, Pakistan repeats to India

Hafiz Saeed after LHC decision

Pakistan on Tuesday told India to refrain from commenting on court decisions and questioning its sincerity about action against terrorist outfits.

‘Polemics and unfounded insinuations cannot advance the cause of justice in civilized societies. Legal processes cannot and must not be interfered with,’ said Foreign Office Spokesman Abdul Basit while commenting on Indian External Affairs Ministry’s criticism of Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed’s release.

Basit dismissed Indian concerns as ‘misplaced.’

India on failing streak…

May 28, 2009


Tabish Qayyum and Hammad Qureshi

Once again Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) of India has failed to fulfill its agenda of avenging the self created Mumbai wounds by eliminating leadership of Jamat-ud-dawa (JuD). They are working on two primary objectives:

  1. To eliminate JuD leadership,
  2. To damage trust between JuD, Pakistani Government and Law Enforcement agencies, that has naturally built over the years due to the pro-Pakistan policies and defence of Pakistan that JUD has carried out over the years.

There are reports that medical and rehabilitation teams from Jamaat Al-Daawa, the Kashmiri organization that used to be active in support of their kin in Indian-occupied Kashmir, have surfaced to help the hundreds of thousands of Pakistani refugees fleeing the terror of insurgents pouring in from Afghanistan, backed by anti-Pakistan forces there.

Lashkar: Indian Agencies Behind Lahore Attacks

March 8, 2009

Kashmiri militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba rejected media reports in India that it was involved in an attack on Sri Lanka’s cricket squad in Lahore.

“These media reports are false, incorrect and baseless,” Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) spokesman Abdullah Ghaznavi said. He was speaking by telephone from Srinagar from an undisclosed location.

“The attack on Sri Lanka’s team was an attack on Pakistan’s sovereignty and Kashmiri militants could never even think of that (such an attack),” Ghaznavi said.

LeT, which has been fighting for freedom from New Delhi’s rule in Indian-occupied Kashmir, blamed Indian security agencies for the Lahore attack.

“The attack is the handiwork of Indian agencies to defame Pakistan and bring instability to the country,” Ghaznavi said.

Lashkar-e-Taiba has often been blamed by India for terrorist acts within India. Most of these acts have subsequently been proved to have been carried out by Indian based Hindu extremist groups with support from serving Indian army officers.

Lashkar-e-Taiba has never been implicated in any terrorist activities on Pakistani soil and has a strict policy in this regard. They have in fact recently come under fire and recieved threats from CIA backed terrorist Baitullah Mehsud.

Mehsud’s ‘Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan’ (TTP) threatened attacking members of Lashkar-e-Taiba by pointing out that they only fight against Indian rule in Kashmir and do not support TTP’s version of ‘Jihad’ against Pakistani citizens.

Meanwhile, Pakistan’s interior ministry chief Rehman Malik said Friday he could not rule out foreign involvement in the Sri Lankan cricket attack.

“I cannot rule out (the involvement of a) foreign hand in the incident,” Malik told reporters in Lahore.

Zardari Government Misled China

December 21, 2008

42-20976986More information is coming out that confirms how the Zardari-Gilani government has deliberately opened a door that could lead to future sanctions against Pakistan and its military under the pretext of fighting terrorism. This is suicide for Pakistan. This is also my answer for those who criticized me for being harsh when I said that this government is committing treason.

Pakistani Hindus rally to support Islamic Charity

December 17, 2008


Hundreds of members of Pakistan’s Hindu community have turned out to protest on behalf of a Muslim charity accused by India over the deadly Mumbai attacks.

Muslim Pakistan has a Hindu minority, many of whom are impoverished agricultural workers, but the women in the southern city of Hyderabad rejected what they called pressure by mostly Hindu India to ban the Jamaat-ud-Dawa charity.

“How can an organisation be terrorist if it’s been providing food and water to us despite knowing that we’re not Muslims?” said Biga Ram, a 40-year protester.

“They’re friends of humanity. We condemn the ban. It’s unjust,” she said.

Some of the banners read: “Do not ban our saviour!”

Bhai Chand, a Hindu community leader, told Associated Press the charity had set up water wells in the desert.

_45303860_hyapThe protesters gathered outside the Hyderabad press club chanting slogans in support of the charity and holding banners with messages such as: “Jamaat-ud-Dawa is not terrorist” and “We condemn the banning of Jamaat-ud-Dawa under Indian pressure”.

Pakistan has not yet formally banned the charity but has rounded up dozens of its activists, detained some of its leaders, shut its offices and frozen its bank accounts as part of a crackdown on suspected Islamists since the Mumbai attacks.

India says the charity is a front for the banned Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militant group, which it says was set up by Pakistan to fight Indian rule in the disputed Kashmir region.


Al-Da’awa: India Should Hand Over Hindu Terrorists To Pakistan

December 10, 2008

_38508549_saeed150This is what most Pakistanis hoped to hear from their political leaders. But they have proven once again that they love their foreign houses and bank accounts more than the homeland. With all their empty arrogance, not a single Pakistani official dared make a single bold statement against the barrage of Indian B.S.

When people like Ahmed Mukhtar, the defense minister, and Khursheed Shah, another PPP minister, were sheepishly justifying their government’s weak responses to American and Indian arrogance, it was the Pakistan Air Force Chief who came out to contradict them. These politicians were exposed for who they are. This also exposes the unworkable Pakistani democracy that always brings to power the worst of the worst.

Unlike these ‘leaders’, Jamaat al Daawah is made up of honorable men. We might disagree with some of their ideas but not with their intentions. Facing belligerent Indian statements, the Pakistani charity group, Jama’at al Da’awah, has made a demand for the extradition of Indian Hindu terror suspects involved in killing Pakistanis on Indian soil, as they did when they burned Pakistanis alive in Samjota Express, the so-called ‘friendship’ train.

Lashkar Bashing

_42587247_train_flames416grabNew Delhi, Feb 19 2007: Wahid Khan had come to the Old Delhi Railway Station here last night to see off his relatives who were going to Pakistan to attend a marriage.

Shock and disbelief writ large on his face, Khan, a resident of adjoining Ghaziabad, was back at the station this morning frantically looking for information about his relatives as news came in of twin explosions on the Samjhauta Express. Khan’s 70-year-old mother, brother Tariqat (25) and friend Isteghar were on the train.

“They were going to Pakistan to attend a marriage function. They were so happy to be able to go to Pakistan. I am just hoping somebody tells me they are safe and sound,” he said.

Sixty-eight-year-old Mohammad Ali came to the station looking for his son Tanveer’s father-in-law, Afzal Khan who had come from Pakistan to attend a function and was going back. Afzal’s wife and his 18-year-old daughter Tanya were also with him on the train and their whereabouts were unknown.

Ali complained that railway authorities were not forthcoming in giving any information regarding the incident.

“Probably, we have to go to Panipat to get the exact information,” he said.

These are only two such tragic stories.

As the Samjhauta Express, its two coaches on fire and its passengers screaming for help, stopped at the railway crossing in Siwa, the villagers were in for an experience they would never forget.

Satnarayan, who was among the first to reach the spot, said he will never forget the sight of the two train coaches on fire.

“Huge flames leapt out of the windows of the coaches and smoke billowed out. There were people inside the coaches who were screaming for help,” he said.

Before the smoke had even settled down, both the Indian media as well as government authorities were pointing the finger at Pakistan, and in particular, Lashkar-e-Taiba. Ofcourse we now know that it was infact right-wing Hindu terrorists, among them a serving Indian military officer, who caused this carnage in an attempt to malign Pakistan and Lashkar-e-Taiba.


Lashkar-e-Taiba is a militant organization fighting the forced Indian occupation in Kashmir. They have been known to be the most lethal, technologically advanced, highly trained and the most destructive force among all of the Kashmiri resistance groups and have been bleeding the Indian occupation forces in Kashmir for years now. In accordance with Islamic teachings, they have a policy of not attacking civilians, and have denounced countless terrorist acts targeting civilians in both India and Pakistan.

In addition to their resolve and ability, one of the reasons Lashkar-e-Taiba has been so effective in Kashmir is the popular support they enjoy among ordinary Kashmiris. Hundreds of thousands of Kashmiris have taken to the streets this year demanding freedom from India, chanting such slogans as ‘India teri maut ai, lashkar aai lashkar aai’ and ‘lashkar-e-taiba se rishta kya, la ilaha il-Allah’ (Watch Video).

Blaming Lashkar-e-Taiba is not only a great diversion for the understandably angry Indian public looking at their leaders for answers, it also helps paint Lashkar-e-Taiba as mindless terrorists and Pakistan as a state sponsor of Terrorism. Pointing towards the ‘traditional enemy’ means they can’t be held accountable, and provides the perfect cover for home grown Hindu terrorists, giving them a free hand to keep slaughtering Muslims and Christians in India.


Within the first half an hour of the attacks in Mumbai, the Indian media had once again started pointing the finger at Pakistan. They now claim to have caught a terrorist who’s confessed to being trained by Pakistan’s ISI at camps run by Lashkar-e-Taiba.

It is interesting to note that after the 2006 bombings on Mumbai’s trains, the Indians claimed to have caught ‘Pakistani lashkar members’ who had confessed links with ISI. All seven of them later withdrew their confessions in court.

India has a history of blaming everything under the sun on Pakistanis, the ISI and Lashkar-e-Taiba, and has threatened to attack Jama’at-ud-Dawa’s headquarters in Muridke, which the Indians claim holds training camps run by Lashkar-e-Taiba.


PAKISTAN-SASIA-QUAKE-1YEAR-JIHADISJama’at-ud-Dawa was a established in 1985 as a charity, and are credited with building and running hundreds of hospitals and schools all over Pakistan. They have won international acclaim for their role in distaster management and providing relief to disaster victims all over the world, most notably in the earthquakes in Pakistan in 2005 and 2008.

They have provided emergency relief, aid, run medical camps and mobile operation units in some of the most impoverished rural areas of Pakistan.

Militants, they’re not. And while they may morally support all freedom movements around the world including in Kashmir (most Pakistanis do), they are a separate entity altogether to LeT which operates only in occupied Kashmir.

Empty threats?

In response to Indian allegations and threats, Jama’t-ud-Dawa yesterday took the unprecedented step of opening up their facilities to the media (BBC: Peaceful School or Terror Base?) to prove that the Indian allegations are false, yet again.

Meanwhile, Lashkar-e-Taiba has denied involvement in the Mumbai attacks and told the Indians to look at home, just as they did after the Samjhauta Express bombings – in response to Indian allegations then.

And guess what, they were right.
