Ter­ror­ism, De­cep­tion and In­dia

The Diplomatic Insight - - Contents - Ah­san Ali Zahid and Hasan Ehtisham

The Western media has fre­quently im­ping­ing the bizarre as­sump­tions that Pak­istan has se­cret ties with ji­hadis to launch at­tacks on In­dia, but it has less of­ten re­vealed that In­dia is per­sis­tently in­volved in a proxy war against Pak­istan. In the back drop of this sce­nario, For­eign Sec­re­tary Aizaz Ahmed Chaudhry claimed that In­dia’s spy agency RAW has been in­volved in cre­at­ing un­rest in Pak­istan. He em­pha­sized that Pak­istan will in­ter­na­tion­al­ize the con­cern if latest Safora in­ci­dent’s in­ves­ti­ga­tion leads to in­volve­ment of RAW.

Re­cently, the as­ser­tion that In­dian in­tel­li­gence agency RAW is us­ing proxy fac­tions to ter­ror­ize Pak­istan has been made by Pak­istan’s Mil­i­tary. This is quite un­usual that corps com­man­ders’ con­fer­ence di­rectly blamed neigh­bor­ing in­tel­li­gence agency. The Dawn also pointed out RAW’s in­volve­ment in Baluchis­tan, FATA and Karachi on the ba­sis of con­fes­sional state­ments by crim­i­nals ar­rested in re­cent times. It is also a truth that there is an un­for­tu­nate neg­li­gence from Pak­istani gov­ern­ment to un­veil the ev­i­dence against In­dia in­ter­na­tion­ally. How­ever, corps com­man­ders’ con­fer­ence has let the cat out of the bag!

Dan­ger of Proxy War

In re­al­ity In­dia and Pak­istan are head­ing to­wards a proxy war in Afghanistan at a time when NATO com­bat forces are ready to de­part. Afghanistan’s new pres­i­dent Ashraf Ghani has al­ready is­sued a warn­ing of this fu­ture prospect. In this sce­nario, ma­tured and unim­peded mount­ing threat for Pak­istan. In­dia wants to es­tab­lish re­silient anti-Pak­istan sen­ti­ments in Afghanistan. Pak­istan on ev­i­dence to In­dian author­i­ties, about In­dian covert sup­port in a num­ber of ter­ror­ist acts in Pak­istan. In­dia was on the track to in­sti­gate prox­ies against Pak­istan right af­ter the in­stal­la­tion of Modi gov­ern­ment, but the game gets worst when Modi nom­i­nated Ajit Do­val as na­tional se­cu­rity ad­vi­sor. A year ago, YouTube video of Mr. Ajit is a per­fect man­i­fes­ta­tion of In­dia’s on­go­ing sur­rep­ti­tious war against Pak­istan. While clas­si­fy­ing Pak­istan as an In­dian En­emy, Mr. Ajit ad­vo­cated ex­ten­sive range of clan­des­tine ac­tions against Pak­istan i.e. iso­lat­ing Pak­istan in­ter­na­tion­ally OR aid­ing TTP to cre­ate in­ter­nal se­cu­rity of Pak­istan chaotic. He is of the view that In­dia should use Tal­iban as a preva­lent vul­ner­a­bil­ity against Pak­istan.

On the same note, Chuck Hagel has also in­di­cated that In­dia is us­ing for Pak­istan. Iron­i­cally en­tire U.S. pol­icy is a pro­vi­sion to these In­dian in­cur­sions in Pak­istan, as Web­ster G. Tarp­ley re­vealed in an in­ter­view, re­gion (Afghanistan and Pak­istan) is to pro­voke a civil war in Pak­istan, to breakup Pak­istan and pre­vent Pak­istan in be­com­ing energy cor­ri­dor be­tween Iran and China. I think this claim is ac­tu­ally quite plau­si­ble.” U.S. knows it can­not con­test China eco­nom­i­cally and in­dus­tri­ally so they have to stun China through these sub­ver­sive tac­tics.

John Pike, renowned ex­pert on de­fense, space and in­tel­li­gence pol­icy,ev­i­dently re­ported that RAW is a ma­jor source of es­pi­onage and sabotage against Pak­istan and other neigh­bor­ing coun­tries. Pike’s re­ports sub­stan­ti­ate the claims that In­dian in­tel­li­gence agency has been in­volved in pre­car­i­ous ac­tions in Pak­istan. Avail­able re­ports as­sert that ap­prox­i­mately 35,000 RAW agents have en­tered Pak­istan in be­tween 1983 to 1993. The re­port is a demon­stra­tion that how KGB ex­ploited RAW to or­ga­nize ter­ror­ist at­tacks in Pak­istani cities through­out the Afghan War and

af­ter the end of Cold War, Raw did Afghanistan. In­dian in­tel­li­gence agency RAW has never missed a chance in plan­ning and plot­ting its ter­ror­ists to ma­lign and iso­late Pak­istan in­ter­na­tion­ally whether it is the sports realm. The agency was furtively in­volved in March 3 at­tack at the Lib­erty Chowk in La­hore, tar­get­ing the Sri Lankan cricket team. Four an­ti­tank dis­pos­able rock­ets were re­cov­ered from the scene, which are only in the use of the In­dian Army.

In­dia’s dou­ble-speak

In­dia’s dou­ble-speak on ter­ror­ism is not tol­er­a­ble as on one side it is fu­ri­ous on the re­lease of Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi but on the other side it is a com­plete In­dian fail­ure to in­ves­ti­gate Pak­istan’s gov­ern­ment tried its hard­est to keep Lakhvi be­hind the bars but you sim­ply can­not keep some­one in the jail be­cause In­dia wants to; law de­mands cor­rob­o­ra­tion to ver­dict him guilty. the enough ev­i­dence is the rea­son he got bail but lamely In­dia is play­ing the blame game that Is­lam­abad did not pro­duce the sub­stan­tial proves. Well, Pak­istan does not have any mag­i­cal wand to pro­duce ev­i­dences! On sev­eral oc­ca­sions Pak­istan de­manded to let its en­voy in­ves­ti­gate Aj­mal Kasab but ob­vi­ously there was some­thing du­bi­ous that is why In­dia did not al­low. On July 19, 2013 Satish Verma un­veiled the se­cret that In­dian gov­ern­ment killed hun­dreds in Mum­bai and Par­lia­ment at­tacks just to strengthen the counter-terror leg­is­la­tion. This brings us to another whis­tle blown on Jan­uary 20, 2013 by the In­dian Home Min­is­ter Sushil Ku­mar Shinde that po­lit­i­cal party in power BJP and RSS are run­ning train­ing camps to pro­mote Hindu ter­ror­ism. These ex­trem­ist groups are also re­spon­si­ble for Samjhauta Ex­press, Mecca Masjid and Male­gaon blasts. Story does not end here, Web­ster G. Tarp­ley in an in­ter­view with Alex Jones Hindu racist ex­trem­ist or­ga­ni­za­tion, now we have re­li­gious ex­trem­ist party Re­search and Anal­y­sis Wing of In­dian in­tel­li­gence, they are up in Afghanistan, re­cruit­ing cra­zies from there to bring them down and help them to en­gage in ter­ror­ism in­side Pak­istan. So the In­di­ans have this real dirty as­pect.” Media plays an im­por­tant role in cre­at­ing In­dian media is fa­mous for cre­at­ing melo­dra­mas. Whether it isearth quake in Nepal or the mat­ter of In­dian RAW spon­sored ter­ror­ist at­tacks when­ever or wher­ever in In­dia. Yel­low jour­nal­ists in In­dian media em­phat­i­cally spread ha­tred among the civil so­ci­ety and if any­one talks ra­tio­nally; he or she is ac­cused of be­ing pro-Pak­istani or ISI agent. For in­stance, ear­lier this year In­dia blew off harm to any­one and In­dia’s DIG Coast Guard BK Loshali told the truth but he got pos­si­bil­ity of court-mar­tial. Mr. Arnab Goswami, in his pro­gramThe News hour De­bate crossed ev­ery limit of jour­nal­ism’s ethics and shouted at a lady rep­re­sen­ta­tive of Congress party, in­volved in this? You have no right to ques­tion when the mat­ter is about Pak­istan”.

Peace is not a one way ticket

Peace is not a one way ticket, Pak­istan wants talks with In­dia but In­dian ef­forts ter­ror­ism the way global com­mu­nity is and the best way to start it is from the home ground. There is a re­al­iza­tion among the an­a­lysts in the world that In­dian in­volve­ment in ter­ror­ism is a se­cu­rity threat to the re­gion and the world. Although Pak­istan has been mak­ing ef­forts to bet­ter the ties by bi­lat­eral ne­go­ti­a­tions but it is the truth that In­dian con­sulates in Afghanistan have been used to desta­bi­lize Pak­istan. To­day, In­dian pol­icy mak­ers are ag­i­tated that Pak­istan will be­come stronger if it ef­fec­tively con­trols men­ace of Tal­iban. There­fore, In­dia de­sires to part Pak­istan mil­i­tary power by a hos­tile pos­ture on the Line of Con­trol.
