So what does Zaid Hamid(Brass Tacks) has to say?

Pakistani police hunted on Wednesday for gunmen who mounted a bold attack on Sri Lanka’s cricket team in Lahore as officials tried to figure out who was behind it. It would be intersting to know what so called Pakistani think tank Zaid Hamid has to say , who had said that people behind Mumbai attack were Indians . Why?

“The orange thread wristbands on one of the terrorists – a sign of belonging to the Hindu extremists of the RSS” – Zaid Hamid.

As per reuters , here is a list of possible suspects.
ISLAMIST MILITANTS

Pakistan has been struck by a wave of suicide attacks and bomb blasts by al Qaeda, Taliban and militant groups linked to them.

The attack in Lahore was carried out by around a dozen gunmen, and many observers, including Punjab Governor Salman Taseer, noted similarities with the attack on the Indian city of Mumbai in November.

India and the United States blamed Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba, a jihadi group fighting Indian rule in the disputed Kashmir region.

Pakistan has arrested a few LeT members suspected of being behind the Mumbai plot, even though the group, according to analysts, has had ties with Pakistani intelligence in the past.

Many past attacks have been attributed to Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (Movement of Taliban, Pakistan), a loose umbrella group of factions based in northwest Pakistan on the Afghan border. It is led by Baitullah Mehsud, an al Qaeda cohort. He is suspected of organising the assassination of Zardari’s wife and former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, in December 2007.

Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ), a Sunni Muslim militant group, is regarded as one of al Qaeda’s principal cat’s paws in Pakistan. LeJ, made up of cadres largely drawn from Punjab, specialises in targeting minority Shi’ite Muslims, but graduated to high-profile attacks like the suicide truck bombing of Islamabad’s Marriott Hotel in September last year which killed at least 55 people.

Jaish-e-Mohammad is another Punjab-based militant group that has focused on fighting Indian rule in Kashmir, but there are signs its members have broadened their remit. A Jaish connection was made to one of the assassination attempts on former President Pervez Musharraf in December 2003, and there was a Jaish presence at the Red Mosque uprising in Islamabad in 2007. Jaish members have also surfaced in tribal areas bordering Afghanistan.

Harkat-ul Jihad-e-Islami (HUJI), is another Islamist militant group fighting in Kashmir that forged al Qaeda links. HUJI carried the suicide attack that killed 11 Frenchmen and two Pakistanis outside Karachi’s Sheraton Hotel. The New Zealand cricket team was staying at the same hotel, and promptly aborted its tour.

BALUCH GROUPS

Several guerrilla groups are waging a low-key insurgency in gas-rich Baluchistan province on the border with Afghanistan. Some have taken responsibility for small attacks in Lahore in the past. A group calling itself the Baluchistan Liberation United Front (BLUF) claimed responsibility for the kidnapping of an American working for the United Nations a month ago. The attack on the Sri Lankan team is on a vastly different scale to anything carried out by any Baluch group.

OUTSIDE PAKISTAN — SRI LANKA’S TAMIL TIGERS

In Sri Lanka, official suspicion will fall on the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), a rebel group close to military defeat in northern Sri Lanka and which has a long history of carrying out deadly guerrilla attacks. There has been no clear evidence the Tigers have operations or links to Pakistan.

Pakistan has good relations with Sri Lanka and has given training and supplied arms to the Sri Lankan military fighting the Tamil Tiger rebels.

Open Question to Media and Politicians – What is ‘Hindu Terrorism’

Try searching Google for Hinduism and you will get 1,180,000 results. Try the same for “Hindu Terrorism” you will get 2,450,000 results.

Well you can thank the media and our politicians for that. 

I would like to ask what do you really mean by “Hindu terrorism” or  “Hindu terror”, “Hindu bomb”, “Saffron terrorism”. Well you do not say “Islamic terrorism” because then seculars cry out loud. But it is “OK” to call a hindu by such names, because they know Hinduism has always been a tolerant religion. In spite of having no evidence of their involvement in violent activities or working against the Indian State, they are still being termed as “Hindu Terrorist” .For the sake of Muslim vote-bank, Hindu organizations needed to be shown as being involved in anti-national activities. 

News channel and Politicians never stood up for the Kashmiri pundits who were butchered in Kashmir .Syed Ali Shah Geelani who  favors the condition accession of Kashmir to Pakistan is treated at government expense. 

The secular hate-mongers are pushing Hindus into a difficult corner without a space to be heard. Not a single ‘mainline’ newspaper publishes their views, though any number of assaults on them is a matter of routine. This is creating a grave situation and it’s a warning signal that can be ignored only at the peril of the nation’s great legacy of plurality”[10], writes Tarun Vijay.

Dr Saurav Basu writes , Within 24 hrs of her arrest, the Sadhvi has become Hindu’s terror feminine face! Everything associated with her is claimed to be untouchable including her religious identity. Dare they render the same [dis]service to the hundreds of Islamic terrorists who have been apprehended by the police! Recall, the Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati conspiracy case in which the ‘secular’ media played such an egregious role in defaming both him, and the Math that the Andhra High Court was compelled to intervene and issue a stern warning to all these agencies of secular terror, for “the amount of disrepute and sacrilege inflicted upon Sri Jayendra Saraswati, as of now, is so enormous that it has hardly any comparables” The learned judge had also regrettably noted, “sad and sorrowful that an institution of such glory that withstood foreign invasions and social revolutions” over the past 2500 years “is virtually targeted and persecuted in an organized manner in an independent country…Not only individuals, but also a section of the institutions, such as the State and the Press, appears to be determined to belittle and besmirch the Peetam…The proponents of human rights, fair play and dignity to the individuals and institutions have maintained stoic silence”

Bailout Pakistan , But Proceed with Caution

Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani on Tuesday said being a front line state in the war against terror; Pakistan has sacrificed more than any other country. 

Here’s why : –

1. Pakistan is the only country in the world which harbors terrorists and calls them freedom fighters.

2. Pakistan is the only country in the world which is accused of sheltering terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda,  Lashkar-e-Omar, Lashkar-e-Toiba, Sipah-e-Sahaba.

3. Abdul Qadeer Khan , a Pakistani scientist  widely regarded as the founder of Pakistan’s nuclear program who has confessed to having been involved in a clandestine international network of nuclear weapons technology proliferation from Pakistan to Libya, Iran and North Korea is supposedly under house arrest . He recently changed his statement and said that “President Pervez Musharraf forced him to be a “scapegoat” for the “national interest.” He denies ever traveling to Iran or Libya and claims that North Korea’s nuclear program was well advanced before his visit”.

4. Pakistani President recently acknowledged his country’s inability in combating terrorism. He said that terrorists are getting paid Rs 10000 whereas his government is only paying Rs 7000 to his soldiers.

The Pakistani economy is in shambles , inflation crossing 25% and forex reserves of less than 3 billion dollars .Mr Zardari told The Wall Street Journal that Pakistan needed a bail-out worth $US100 billion. Maybe this time the world provides money with a rider and makes Pakistan walk the talk.

Terrorists are paying their soldiers 10,000 rupees – Asif Ali Zardari

Pakistans president Asif Ali Zaradari has finally acknowladged the fact that “terrorists” and not “freedom fighters” are operating in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir.  “What kind of a joke is this that I cannot pay my security personnel more than the Talibs are paying?” he asks. “Those terrorists are paying their soldiers 10,000 rupees; I’m paying seven or six thousand rupees.”

It is interesting to note that the statement comes at a time when Pakistan’s economy is in deep trouble. A few days ago the Mr Zardari has said “Insha Allah, we will have some good news” on Kashmir before the general elections in India.  

The State Bank of Pakistan’s net foreign reserves fell to around 8.1 billion dollars against 8.8 billion . Out of the 8.1 billion dollars around 4.68 billion dollars are the central bank’s own reserves while the rest are deposits of private financial institution. That is about two months’ worth of foreign currency reserves left to pay for the country’s imports of oil and food.

President Asif Ali Zardari has asked the international community to give Pakistan $100 billion in grant to ensure the country’s survival. “I need your help, if we fall, if we can’t do it, you can’t do it,” Mr Zardari repeatedly said during an interview with Wall Street Journal’s columnist Brent Stephens, published on Saturday.
