Pakistan presents ‘irrefutable evidence’ of India’s sponsorship of terrorism in country
Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and DG ISPR Major General Babar Iftikhar, in a joint media conference, on Saturday categorically stated that India was sabotaging the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and is supporting terrorism in Pakistan.
“Today we have irrefutable facts that we will present before the nation and international community through this dossier.”
“You can see a pattern of constant ceasefire violations,” said the foreign minister, adding that the dossier contains many details and some of them will be used at the “time of need”.
He said while Pakistan was combatting terrorism on its soil, India was using its soil to surround Pakistan “in a web of terrorism”. “India can not tolerate Pakistan’s success against terrorism.”
The foreign minister said during recent months, India has tried its best to fan terrorism across Pakistan. “Indian intelligence agencies are today supporting terrorist groups defeated and outlawed by Pakistan.” He added that the country has information and evidence of India promoting terrorism in Pakistan and “has developed a plan to destabilise Pakistan”.
Qureshi warned that in the coming months, there will be an upsurge in terrorist activities in Pakistan and the focus will be on the major urban centres of the country. “We have irrefutable evidence,” said the foreign minister.
Major General Babar Iftikhar, giving details of Indian involvement in terrorist activities in Pakistan, said India embraced all terrorist organisations soon after they were uprooted from Pakistan.
“I shall cover the details of Indian machinations for Pakistan’s destabilization and economic coercion by presenting evidence in the domains of funding terrorism, weapons and equipment support to terrorists, terrorist training and terrorist activities.”
The military spokesperson said the recent upsurge in violence in Pakistan is a direct consequence of New Delhi’s “intensified engagements with all brands of terrorists, sub-nationalists and dissident’s operating against Pakistan”.
“After the unification of TTP with its breakaway factions (JuA and HuA) in August 2020, India is endeavouring to establish a consortium of TTP with proscribed dissident organisations of Balochistan (BLA, BLF and BRA) which are already united under the banner of BRAS (Baloch Raaji Aajoie Sangar) constituted in 2018.
Iftikhar further said that India’s RAW also funded Altaf Hussain, as revealed by the confessional statement of Sarfraz Merchant and Tariq Mir, through two Indian companies.
“India has also been providing weapons and ammunition to Altaf Hussain Group; weapons worth $0.62 million were provided to Altaf Hussain Group on one such occasion. Confessional statement of Ajmal Pahari validates it.”
DG ISPR added that Pahari had confessed that India had established four training camps for the group’s militants in India, with training for militants lasting between 15 days to four months and “it was confirmed that 40 AHG terrorists had received training at India who used to travel to New Delhi
Elaborating further, Maj Gen Iftikhar said an Indian intelligence officer, Colonel Rajesh, employed at Indian Embassy in Afghanistan, is the master planner and a letter reveals that he has held four meetings with commanders of these terror outfits “to synergize their efforts and upscale terrorist activities in metropolitan cities in November and December 2020”.
He further said that India is trying to establish a linkage between Pakistan and the militant Islamic State (IS) by creating ‘Daesh-e-Pakistan’.
“Recently, 30 Indian Daesh militants were relocated from India to various camps along Pakistan-Afghanistan border by two Indian intelligence agencies operatives. These militants were handed over to Daesh Commander Shiekh Abdul Rahim alias Abdul Rehman Muslim Dost.”
“Uncontrivable evidence reveals that Indian embassies and consulates operating along Pakistan’s borders have become a hub of terror sponsorship against Pakistan,” said the military spokesperson.
The military spokesperson said Indian ambassadors to Afghanistan have regularly supervised various terrorist activities. “In one such instance, Indian ambassador to Afghanistan and Indian consular in Jalalabad had detailed discussions with collaborators to provide financial support to TTP and dissident Baloch elements.”
For sabotaging CPEC, India raised a militia of 700 militants to conduct terror activities in Balochistan, said Maj Gen Iftikhar. “A commission comprising 24 members was created which included 10 RAW operatives. $60 million dollars were dedicated for this force.”
