Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Babar Iftikhar and Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Saturday morning presented an extensive dossier on Indian state-sponsored terrorism in Pakistan. They stated that India was actively involved in sabotaging China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), and warned that according to “our information, in the ongoing month, India has plans to upscale terror activities in Pakistan.”
In a joint press conference that was also broadcasted live across various TV channels, DG ISPR shared audio files, intercepted calls, videos, documents and data that showed proof of Indian agencies’ involvement in funding terror organisations and orchestrating terror attacks.
The DG ISPR went over individual terrorist attacks and its perpetrators. The dossier revealed how the Indian embassy in Jalalabad has been heavily involved in planning attacks. It showed how India had planned the Army Public School (APS) Peshawar attack – during which 149 people were killed, including 134 children – after which one of the terrorist went to the Indian embassy in Afghanistan to celebrate the attack, and received medical treatment in India afterwards.
“The recent upsurge of violence in Pakistan is directly to do with Indian involvement. Col Rajesh is employed at Indian Embassy in Afghanistan and is the mastermind behind many attacks,” DG ISPR said. He added We have reports that India before GB elections, through sub nationalists tried to promote subversive activities.
The dossier showed India to be behind the unification of different terrorists groups in Pakistan – such as the Jamaat-ul-Ahrar (JuA) , Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), and Harakat ul-Ansar (HuA).
DG ISPR revealed that there have been at least four recent sittings of Indian agencies and their collaborators, and the focus will be on targeting areas of Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar. He further said that the attack in Quetta on October 26 – when Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) was holding a rally in the city – was also carried out by India. He warned that India plans target killings of important officials and Politian’s in Pakistan, and played an audio clip where an Indian RAW handler was discussing the assassination of a PDM leader in Lahore with an agent in Pakistan.
Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that “we have presented irrefutable evidence that RAW is harbouring terrorists and is promoting terrorism which is a clear sign of state-sponsored terrorism.” He added that India has a clear plan to destabilise China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC)
“We have concrete information that they have established a special cell in their intelligence agency for this purpose. They work under the PM directly.”
While addressing the world the Foreign Minister said “the international community can no longer turn blind eye to this rough behaviour by a state that refuses to abide by UN Charter. Let me be clear, India is a state-sponsor of terrorism, and is consistently display roughish behaviour.”
