Pak-involvement to foment Islamic Terrorism in Kashmir-I
A N Bharadwaj
Emerging Pakistan of twentieth century in the hope as sured by Muslims for communal harmony and forever lasting peace which, was accepted by British Crown in consultation with Indian leadership, is now an epi-center of terrorism instead of peace zone. That land is deliberately used by fundamentalists and fanatic terrorists to generate Islamic terrorism to hit India, especially Kashmir to snatch it on the basis of proximity. Soon after Partition of British India, it committed an aggression, indulged in human slaughtering who so ever appeared before brutal intruders, spilled human blood like a river of water, en masse sexual assault, rape, destroyed lush green fields, set villages, towns on fine, occupied the some part of the J&K State and forwarded onward by devastating the habitation all round in the hope to capture summer capital of the State to raise its flag.
Keeping in view of increasing holocaust of continual killings, bloodshed and lamenting cry of the people for mercy and to take pity to lease their lives, India dispatched its forces to repulse the Pak-cruel forces. In the meanwhile when the Pak-aggressors were being repulsed shamelessly by vacating the State territory, the Indian ruling leadership headed by Pt. Nehru submitted a representation to UNO with a request to ask Pakistan to stop further bloodshed and surrender its State territory peacefully. Follower of non-violence and peace, he disclosed in the Parliament to give message to the Nation that it was not fit and looked nice on the basis of humanity, his conscience would not have allowed him to gun down those with whom they and their forefathers had been living for centuries with them closely as a neighbor with deep relation. They could have repulsed intruding Pak-forces very easily with their might by using violence, but they had not deemed fit to spill blood of their brothers with the use of violence, therefore they went to UNO for to ask Pakistan to stop further bloodshed and surrender their territory encroached upon through forces illegally.
In fact Pak-ruling leadership took misadventure to initiate three wars against India one after other and suffered a lot to the extent of loss its eastern part of its country which emerged as Bangladesh, a sovereign country. On the other side by admitting the UNO about the Indian sovereignty over the J&K State as an integral part of India and it was not Pakistan but India as an aggrieved party that had knocked its door for help and asked Pakistan to vacate occupied State territory encroached upon illegally for implementation for further process of its resolution for plebiscite That was the great set back for it. However, after failure and frustration it started a proxy war with an aim at to snatch State by shattering it socially and economically. It followed different strategies to split India. That job was entrusted to its terror ISI agency which had link with other terror agencies to foment terrorism in India, especially in Kashmir to destabilize its administration for challenge Indian sovereignty over it. In continuation to its terror campaign, it hijacked Fokar Friendship aircraft of Indian Lines through J&K Liberation Front in 1971, and forced it to land at Lahore (Pakistan). As soon as it landed the then Foreign Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto under the command of Yahya Khan rushed there to help them for maximum publicity on international level for their so called dedicated cause. India desired to send a replacement crew to fly air craft back to its land, but instead of it, the Pak-ISI handed over explosive to hijackers resulting in blown up the air-craft against the aspirations of India. In retaliate India banned all Pak-civil and military over flights through its air space which, continued in force till Simla agreement.
Apart from it, the Pak-ISI organized Sikh extremist outfits Dal Khalsa in Punjab in late 1970 to foment terrorism and took to high-jack as a weapon for intimidation in 1981 and 1984; it hijacked four Indian Air-line Aircrafts and took them to Lahore. Zia-ul-Haq regime turned down the request made by India to hand over the hijackers for trial, but instead of paying heed to the proposal, it provided five star facilities to these culprits in Nankana Sahib Gurudwara at Lahore for their future stay and for the use to organize terror activities to target Punjab. However, India informed to the international community about the Pak-designs for increasing its day by day terrorism. The protest expressed by India was somewhat responded by Pak-dictator Zia, who later on refused two Indian high-jacked planes which were to be landed at Lahore in spite of objecting London based terrorist Dr.Jagjit Singh Chouhan and U S belonging Ganga Singh based Pak- Nankana Sahib strongly, working at the behest of Pak-ISI to campaign for terrorism under terror outfit Dal Khalsa. In continuation to this, when the fourth Indian Air-Line Plane was hijacked in 1984 by Sikh terrorists to Lahore, Zia ordered to his ISI terror agency to allow it to land and help the hijackers to meet media and afterwards persuade them to go away to Delhi. The Pak-ISI found that the hijackers had intimidated the pilot with a toy pistil. After terminating the hijacking at Dubai, the local authorities handed over them to Indian officers and pistil given to them at Lahore.
In consequent upon its aggressive designs one after other, India informed the world power U S with the request to ask Pak-rulers to refrain from for hatching further shattering intrigues against it. But by responding India's worry, it pressed down Pak-rulers to send Lahore jail Dal Khalsa hijackers from Gurudawara Nankana Sahib. Afterwards, in 1992 India shared with U S against Pak-generating terrorism along with it stressed to declare Pakistan a terror sponsoring country in South Asia with imposing economic sanction. Thereafter, Bombay blast 1993, exploded by Pak-sponsored terrorists at the behest of ISI, as the explosive material used by them while escaping after the blast had been processed and manufactured in an ordnance factory of Pak-Government.
The U S had its assessment of Pak-ISI involvement of spreading terrorism in India and forced the then ruler Nawaz Shrief to remove Lt. General Javed Nazir the then Director General of ISI who it believed had a role in promoting terrorism in India. However, the U S sympathy and co-operation was encouraging, but in spite of its efforts, Pak-rulers did not budge an inch to shun its terrorism and bloodshed and continued terror operation through its patronizing Hakut-ul-Dawa (H-ul-D) previously known as Hakut-ul-Ansar (H-ul-A) which was declared by the U S as an international terror outfit in 1997. In South Asia, Pak-ISI in accordance with its state terror policy patronized L-e-T, Al Badar, Al Qaeda and other terror outfits for fomenting terrorism to hit not only India, but Russia and China that were also under its range.
The Pak-regular forces which Russia had unflinching evidence involved fighting in Degestan with the objective to establish Islamic republic. There Pak-forces found actively fighting along with secessionists in that Republic which is a part of Russia. There Pak-mercenaries led by Abdul Jabbar along with others from Arab world took part in the revolt and excited the rebels, where involvement in the Caucasian crisis had come to light and directly blamed Pak-rulers for abetting crisis in Degestan by extending financial aid Chechan rebels vide Degestan Security Services, revealed through radio on 19th August 1994. Similarly, China warned Pakistan to stop supporting terrorists for Muslim militancy in its province of Xinjiang formerly known as Sinkiang. The Chinese rulers conveyed to Pakistan that its unconditional support to them on Kashmir issue might be under gone if Muslim fundamentalists working in their country were not prevented from extending their support to Muslim militancy in its Xinjiang province. Its clear cut warning had appeared in the media on 23rd August 1999, and 12th March 2001 respectively. The involvement of Pak-army and its ISI with these terror outfits working there at their behest was clear as their annual functions had been organized by them on governmental level, and their active participation with delivering their speeches in support of their violent activities against India and other countries. In addition to this, the investigation and trial in 1995, a group of Pak-army headed by Maj. General Zaheer-ul-Islam Abbasi was arrested on a charge of planning a coup brought out that all the arrested officers had close link with M H Askasi, H-ul-M terrorist. In this regard, Pak-columnist disclosed in daily Dawn dated 19th October 1995, that the plotters had close links with terror outfits of H-ul-M and the H-ul-A. known for their involvement in international terrorism and the arrested officers were wanted by Pakistan to be involved militantly in Kashmir for its initiated so called freedom struggle. By looking into the increasing Pak-terror activities to split India in to pieces through the weapon of Islamic terrorism, India once again focused U S attention towards Pak-aggressive designs hatched against it and further proposed to declare Pakistan a state sponsoring of terrorism and with International Civil Aviation Organization to suspend the Pak-international Air-ways flights till it arrested and handed over the hijackers as well as stopped such acts of terrorism, but its lamenting request was unheeded because of its own visional policy. Although the U S had worry over rapid increasing Islamic terrorism as well as other fanatic mushrooming terror outfits and many mercenaries trained by Pak-terror agency ISI indoctrinated in madrassas wandering for terror misdeeds by posing immense danger to democracy and planning for rigid Islamic order on international level under Pak-strategies. The negative democratic movements were emerged which threatened the root of democracy in Pak-Afgh and small republics in Central Asia. In case Islamic terrorism gains success to the nuclear button, it would at once proliferate and environ many countries. So the U S as a supper power in the world should lead to save humanity at large. In case it is not checked through co-operation of world statesmen of democratic countries, it would soon be converted into nuclear terrorism.
