India, Afghanistan involved in terrorism

 Plight of Kashmiris in Indian occupied Kashmir

An official of the Interior Ministry on Wednesday disclosed that India with the connivance of Afghanistan initiated a cold war against Pakistan to take revenge of its support to the Kashmir cause.

The official gave a detailed briefing to the National Assembly’s Standing Committee on Interior chaired by Rana Shamim Ahmed.

The body was informed that terrorists were sneaking into Pakistan through the eastern and western borders. The committee was informed that foreign agencies were funding the terrorists and insurgents in Balochistan to fulfil their nefarious designs.

The Taliban, al Qaeda and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ) are engaged in subversive activities in FATA and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, where as LeJ and other sectarian outfits were engaged in fanning sectarianism in Gilgit Baltistan.

Islamabad has been declared ‘extremely dangerous’ city, reasoning the existence and functioning of banned outfits besides other factors.
It was further informed that Islamabad was at high risk and has become the sleeper cell of the banned terrorist outfits such as al Qaeda, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and LeJ.

Banned outfits of TTP and LeJ are a real threat in Punjab while the target killers, al Qaeda and LeJ are targeting Sindh.

FIA Director General Ghalib Bandesha said that FIA despite shortage of force, vehicles, weapons and paucity of funds had recovered Rs 1 billion during the last year. He said, “We are facing hardships to dispose of the pending cases owing to shortage of manpower.” He said Red Warrants were issued against 141 most wanted human traffickers.

During the meeting, PML-N lawmaker Tehmina Daultana and MQM parliamentarian Nabeel Gabol exchanged harsh words.

Both the lawmakers criticised each other’s party heads during a discussion on law and order. Daultana said the MQM was insisting on emergency for personal gains, while Gabol insisted that an emergency should be imposed in the country in view of prevailing law and order situation. He went on to say that the government should wear bangles and keep itself indulged in one-sided dialogue while terrorists would continue targeting citizens on the other side.

Gabol said the PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif ran from the country a decade ago. Daultana retorted that Altaf Hussain was also out of the country and questioned why he had not returned to the country.
