“Terrorist Activities in Pakistan and US-War on Terror”

Pakistan’s strategic location makes it almost impossible for the country to keep itself away from the events all over the world. 9-11 2001 attacks on world trade centre towers in New York lead Pakistan to a situation in which it had to take a U-turn on its successful Afghan policy and they had to pull off their support for the pro-Pakistan Taliban government.

The legitimacy of the war is not only criticized by many in Pakistan and all over the world but the debate is also a hot topic in USA itself whether the 9-11 attacks are the job of al-Qaida or it’s an insider job .

According to former Italian president, Francesco Cossiga:”[Bin Laden supposedly confessed] to the Al-Qaida September [attack] to the two towers in New York [claiming to be] the author of the attack of the 11, while all the [intelligence services] of America and Europe … now know well that the disastrous attack has been planned and realized from the CIA American and the Mossad with the aid of the Zionist world in order to put under accusation the Arabic Countries and in order to induce the western powers to take part … in Iraq [and] Afghanistan.”

Nevertheless Pakistan government took a position of frontline state in the war and now it is facing the brunt of it and also in that war on terror Pakistan was forced to send its troop in the northern parts of its country.

Now after a brief background come to the real topic, the terrorist activities in Pakistan.

Though first suicide attack in Pakistan occurred even before 9-11 in 1995 when an Egyptian bomber smashed his explosives-laden truck into the embassy of Egypt which killed 14 people.

The recent suicide bombing row started from 2002 attacks on French engineers and scientists who were in Pakistan to work on the nuclear submarine project, the blame was put on al-Qaida and its allies in Pakistan ( as a reaction of its role in the war on terror), after that a series of suicide bombings in Pakistan started in which hundreds of people have been killed including the former prime minister Benazir Bhutto and also several high profile leaders including President Musharraf, former Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz, military personnel and foreigners were attacked in the similar manner.

Some points to ponder

Whenever there is a chance of peace truce being signed or even after signing the agreement between local tribesmen in Waziristan and Pakistan Army some similar pattern activities occur.

1) Us strikes in the tribal areas (like the recent one is February 28th one and just one month ago on 29th January)

2) Pakistan Government denies such attacks by foreign forces and claims whatever actions are being taken in the area are being conducted by Pakistan forces and thus taking the blame on their shoulder (and event they face the mass public pressure they just give a weak foreign office condemnation)

3) Suicide attacks in civilian and military areas of Pakistan (like the one on 2nd March on peace jirga).

4) Then peace talks break, like it has happened twice this year and even before that in 2006 and 2007(the Damadola USA strikes attack etc).

5) During that period several tribal leaders and religious scholars who were actively working for the peace negotiations were being targeted and removed from the scene.

These repetitive set of events and the relation between the events have lead to the rise of the thought which is prevailing very quickly that USA is involved in these activities because it wants to weaken the only nuclear Muslim state.

Recent statement by Interior Minister Hamid Nawaz Khan that people in Pakistan feel that India, Afghanistan and USA are involved in terrorist activities in Pakistan, may have fueled the US officials but the ground reality doesn’t deny this.

We must not forget that many Indian RAW agents have been arrested for their involvement in terrorist activities in Pakistan and also it is now well clear that BLA (Baluchistan Liberation Army ) was well supported by India and Israel (with US-backing and approval).

Also we should not neglect the statement given by Robert Gates in December 2007:

“Al-Qaida right now seems to have turned its face toward Pakistan and attacks on the Pakistani government and Pakistan people.”

We must ask ourselves, “Can we keep our eyes close from the facts? What does the history and prevailing facts tell us. It’s time to learn from the history or get ready to be a forgotten part of it.”

It is clearly evident that USA is again interfering in our political matters ( and our respectful and democratic leaders are allowing it to happen or in fact willingly want them to get involved), we as a society put pressure on our leader to act as true leaders not slaves of Imperialist and Zionist powers.

We should at least ask ourselves, for what we are fighting? And whose cause we are serving? We have put on stake our national integrity and honor, for what? We have damaged our Kashmir cause, for what? We are killing our own people, for what? We toppled our institutions (even the most important one, the judiciary), for what? We disgraced our national hero, for what?

For that so called war on terror whose legitimacy is has become a question mark not only in the whole world but in USA as well.

And our dictator still claims that his actions are in the broader national interest of Pakistan.

Can someone tell me which Pakistan?

It’s surely not the one which was founded by our ancestors.

May be Musharraf wants to make a new Pakistan, “George Ka Pakistan”.

    Does Pakistan ever cosider what will happen to their country should the militants be allowed to increase
    in strength and grow?

    Mr. Bush is fighting a lonely battle.

    If any “women and children” were killed, that is a tragedy. However considering who gave us this information, can we believe.

    Perhaps rather than a plot interfere with any “peace talks” with Taliban, the U.S. is attempting to give a lesson as to what happens when the villagers give shelter to militants. Still, I understand that is a sacred custom among the Pashtun. Hospitality.

    We are all in such a frustrating positon trying to fight
    militant Islam. They seem to win in propaganda everytime.

    How did Mr. Bin Laden get to be a saint?

    “Does Pakistan ever cosider what will happen to their country should the militants be allowed to increase

    you cannot fight an ideology by bombing and killing people because more blood will result in more terror.

    “How did Mr. Bin Laden get to be a saint?”

    i dont call him a saint or dont aggree with his strategy BUT the problem is that he has become a symbol of resistance against the biggest terrorists of the world who have terrorised and occupied the world through ECONOMIC TERRORISM AND STATE TERRORISM and unfortunately our muslim ruling classes because of their lust for power and material gains have forgotten their duties to spread the message of justice and truth so this void of leadership has resulted in the emerging of the frustrated groups AND IN THE CASE OF PAKISTAN WE NEED TO OPEN OUR EYES NOW MANY ACTIVITIES ARE BEING DONE BY OUR SO CALLED FORIEGN ALLIES AND SO CALLED SECULAR STATES.

    BLA movement is just one of the examples, also there are reports that Sherpao attack was sponsored by our dear neighbours on our eastern borders.

    India and Pakistan had struggle from UK independent and then they got their countries Please try to understand not to weaken the Pakistan otherwise western world capture India easily through create environment in India. One by one they capture the sovereignty and economy of the sub continent countries. Pakistan and India have pull out western countries from Afghanistan and its neighboring countries if they have unity otherwise they do more bloodshed in Pakistan and India. First of all they weak Pakistan then India to publicity against their military power and create environment in their counties. If Pakistan destabilized then India will also destabilized due to uncertainty creating by western countries started war between different religion of people in India and whole terrorism shifted to India with the help of western and others countries. Raw must stop supporting terrorism in Pakistan. Indian cold war against Pakistan is not favorable for both countries because actual enemy for sub continent is western countries. If Indians are not understood then they will know about in future who are enemy for India and Pakistan.
