Our neighbouring rogue nation ‘Pakistan’ features dreaded terrorist Burhan Wani as ‘martyr’ in their Special Azadi Train. After Salahuddin’s nuclear war threat, Pakistan again ups the ante on its claim for Kashmir!
Islamabad/Karachi: The real face of Pakistan – a state unfortunately carved out of India in 1947 as a separate nation on extreme religious lines has been exposed once again! In a shameful and condemnable incident, posters of slain terrorist Burhan Wani has been put up on the walls of Pakistan’s ‘Azadi Express’ train.
Posters of Burhan Wani, the 22-year-old Hizbul Mujahideen commander who was shot dead by military forces on 8 July in J&K, have been posted on Pakistan’s Azadi Special Express train.
Pakistan, ahead of its Independence Day, has put up Burhan Wani’s posters on the walls of its ‘Azadi Express’ train.
The train will go to Karachi from Peshawar on 14 August, Pakistan’s independence day.
This is another example of Pakistan upping the ante on its claim for Kashmir purely on religious lines.
Besides posters of Wani, the train is also covered with photos of Kashmiri civilians who were left injured during heavy stone pelting and protests that broke out after Wani’s death.
On Monday, Syed Salahuddin, head of Hizbul Mujahideen – a terrorist organisation covertly run by Pakistan’s ISI, had threatened a nuclear attack on New Delhi. “Pakistan is duty bound, morally bound, politically bound and constitutionally bound to provide concrete, substantial support to the ongoing freedom struggle on religious lines on the territory of Kashmir.
And if Pakistan provides this support, there is a great chance of a nuclear war between the two powers,” Salahuddin told the media in Karachi.
He said that he can predict a fourth war with certainty because the Kashmiris are no longer willing to compromise under any circumstances to stay with secular India and want to join Islamic state.
He further said the Kashmiri people have reached this conclusion that they have no second option except to go ahead with an armed struggle and an armed jihad against India
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif too praised Wani and also remarked that “Kashmir will one day become Pakistan”, a comment which evoked a sharp reaction from External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, who said his dream of the state becoming a part of his country “will not be realised even at the end of eternity”.
Burhan Wani was a militant who was killed by Indian Army on July 8. Since then, there have been many violent protests in the valley which has lead to deaths of at civilians until now.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday blamed Pak-based Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) for orchestrating protests in Jammu and Kashmir that entered the 33rd day even as Parliament debated the unrest in the Valley.
The agency’s assertion was based on the videographed interrogation of Pakistani terrorist Bahadur Ali, who was arrested in North Kashmir on July 25. The video shows 21-year-old Ali, a resident of Raiwind in Lahore, talking about the role of LeT and sophisticated communication network raised with the assistance of the Pakistani Army. This is first time the agency has shown the video statement of a captured terrorist.
Inspector General of NIA Sanjeev Singh told reporters that Ali was constantly guided and directed by LeT control centre Alpha-3, which is located in the high altitude of Pak-pccupied-Kashmir.
“During communications with Ali, Alpha-3 said that LeT cadres had been successful in fuelling large scale agitation in Kashmir after Eid subsequent to the death of Burhan Wani (self-styled commander of Hizbul Mujahideen) in Kashmir. Further investigation is continuing on the disclosure of Ali regarding his role in the present unrest in Kashmir,” he said.
He said Alpha-3, with the help of Pak armed forces, is a fixed communication centre. Once the terrorists are inside Indian territory, Alpha-3 “guides, directs and controls their operations” and whenever required, it arranges tactical and material support through previously identified contacts.
According to the NIA, Ali was recruited in Hafiz Sayeed-led Jamaat ud Dawa (JUD) in 2008-2009 at the tender age of 13-14 years. He was tasked with collecting ‘Jihad fund’ in his village. He was radicalised and made to serve in the office of the NGO of LeT ‘Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation’ in Lahore. Ali had undergone three training courses 15 day Daura-e-Tulba (basic training) and 21 days Daura-e-Am (first stage of arms training)
