25th march 2020— a brutal attack was carried out on the minority community of Sikhs in Afghanistan, 27 innocents were killed.
21st April 2019, Easter— a series of coordinated bombings were carried out in 3 churches and 3 luxury hotels in Sri Lanka, 259 innocents were killed and 500 injured.
Both the above attacks were claimed to be carried out by ISIS, as the attackers had recorded a video with ISIS flag in the background. ISIS, which is struggling to increase it’s footprint in South Asia, was only too jubilant to accept these attacks as carried out under it’s patronage. After all, such attacks bring glory to an otherwise emasculated terrorist organization. An Indian veteran from the Military intelligence has already questioned the legitimacy of false flag ISIS operation carried out in Afghanistan as there are enough evidences to prove such attacks are being executed with Pakistan’s spy agency, ISI’s support.
Change of Strategy by Pakistan’s deep state
On one side the populace of Pakistan has been complaining about Pakistan government’s lackadaisical attitude towards curbing the spread of Corona virus in the country, while on the other side the deep state’s long term strategies, are given a priority over the commoners by the government. The reason is simple—Pakistan is not a democracy by any means, but a kakistocracy, run by Pakistan Army. In 72 years of its existence, so far only one democratic government was allowed to finish it’s 5 term sans the Pakistan Army overpowering the government. To pencil in the argument further, it’s a fact that any foreign delegate who visits Pakistan, always ensures a meeting with both the political head and the military head of the country.
So what is really Pakistan’s deep state’s strategy?
Pakistan has been called the mothership of terrorism by Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi while Bangladesh’s Prime Minister has asked United nations to recognize killing of 3 million people in 1971, as a genocide by Pakistan Army. Almost every terrorist attack across the globe has involvement of Pakistan-origin-citizens, and this had been earning Pakistan ire of other countries. Adding to Pakistan’s woes is, that it has also been grey listed by FATF (financial action task force) and has been given the warning to stop funding terrorism.
But Pakistan government has no control over terrorists camps on it’s soil as the terrorists are officially trained by the behemoth Pakistan military itself. The initial purpose of training and equipping the terrorists– was to wage jihad in Kashmir, but with civil war in Afghanistan in the 80’s, Pakistan deep state changed it’s strategy and began training terrorists for countries which could afford to hire them. Slowly things spiraled out of control, and presently Pakistan is at a stage when most of it’s economy runs on funds which are generated through terrorism, and ergo FATF grey listed it. This isn’t the 1st time; earlier in 2008 and from 2012 till 2015, Pakistan found itself on the same list.
So the deep state’s biggest predicament is to pull Pakistan out of this quagmire and to get rid of the tag of terrorism, to which it has been attached universally. Ostensibly, now the deep state doesn’t directly involve itself in carrying out the terrorist attacks, instead it has switched to non-contact warfare. Recent protests in India over citizenship amendment act(CAA), had been meticulously planned and executed by Pakistan’s spy agency ISI.
How is Pakistan’s deep state involved in attacks in Afghanistan and Sri lanka?
Easter bombings in Sri Lanka carried out in 2019 were imputed to ISIS terrorists. But what a lot of people do not know is the link between ISIS funder– Makundre Madush, in Sri Lanka with Dawood Ibrahim, a terrorist on the hit-list of Indian agencies who operates from Pakistan. There are enough evidences which prove that Pakistan’s diplomats in Sri Lanka had been involved in radicalization of populace in the island country. One such example is of Amir Zubair Siddiqui, a diplomat cum spy who was caught red handed misusing his power in Sri Lanka, and was sent back to Pakistan as the diplomatic immunity of the individual prevented him from getting arrested and tried in Sri Lanka.
Interestingly, Zahran Hashim, the leader of 8 member ISIS team which carried out the carnage, was radicalized in southern India with the help of Pakistani proxies functioning in India.
Attack on the Gurudwara which killed 27 innocents was also claimed by ISIS. But there are some facts one needs to consider before taking this claim on face value
- After America’s attack in Nangarhar province, an ISIS citadel, the terrorist organisation has been limping and struggling to survive in Afghanistan.
- In Afghanistan, Taliban which maintains friendly relations with Pakistan Army, has clout over ISIS in the region, ergo it’s a logical conclusion that Taliban would not let any other terrorist organization thrive on it’s territory.
- India already has proof that the attack on minority community of Sikhs in Afghanistan was carried out by Haqqani network.
But then again, a man from south Indian state of Kerala carried out the attack, ergo no one can blame Pakistan.
Ironically, this is a brilliantly executed plan which India could not prevent from getting dragged into. India’s intelligence agencies, despite being proactive and having kept a tab on the activities of Pakistani spy agency– ISI, have not been able to whittle down radicalization of Indian citizens via social media. This could be attributed to it’s humongous population of both majority and minority community. India has a population of about 1.3 billion, with about 400 million social media users.
With Pakistani deep state having switched to non-contact warfare, Indian government and agencies should buckle up for more false flag ISIS operations, backed by ISI.
What a coincidence that organizations dedicated to terrorist activities across the world– ISIS and ISI (inter services agencies), have very similar acronyms.
