    The Footprints of circumstantial evidence regarding the terrorist attack on the Mehran base clearly show the involvement of Indian intelligence agency, Research and Analysis Wing (RAW). Senior intelligence sources told The News that this was a joint venture, accomplished by RAW certainly with the consent of CIA and a group of al-Qaeda who are being used by the anti-Pakistan lobby.

    “Even at this very initial stage, the agencies engaged in the investigation of the attack have got hold of some concrete indications to prove the involvement of foreign hand in the debacle,” one source said. He said that it could easily be calculated who was the prime beneficiary of the shattering strike.

    “The militants attacked the base and mainly targeted the P-3C Orion aircraft as they had instructions to destroy them,” he said, adding that it was on record that India had opposed the US provision of these aircraft to Pakistan.

    Another source said that the only major beneficiary of the annihilation of these planes was India as Pakistan has been deprived of one of its major assets. “It cannot be ascertained yet at this early stage whether Indian commandos were included in the attack squad or the terrorists were Chechens or Afghan activists of al-Qaeda,” the source said. “However, intelligence agencies have enough information that a group of al-Qaeda and Taliban got training in a base camp of RAW in Afghanistan from the Indian forces.”

    The source said that the agencies had informed the government about the joint activities of al-Qaeda and Indian forces in the base camp. It will be established soon that the plan of the attack was prepared in the RAW base camp in Afghanistan, he said.

    Dr Usman, one of the GHQ attackers, who was arrested during the counter operation, had disclosed during the investigation about his links with the Indian camp, the source said.

    On October 10, 2009, terrorists had attacked the Pakistan Army’s General Headquarters in Rawalpindi in a similar fashion, taking 42 people hostage, including several military officers. By the end of the day-long ordeal, nine gunmen, 11 soldiers and three hostages were dead. The attackers had their own communication system with separate frequency through which they were interlinked with each other, the source said.

    Why the attack group fought a pitched battle for 16 hours against the commandos and Rangers, the source said there were standing instructions for the personnel engaged in the operation to arrest at least one of the attackers alive. However, as the Pakistani forces trapped the attackers, they blew themselves up or shot themselves.” “They attackers were four in number, not six,” the source said and added that it was a wrong perception that two militants managed to escape from the airbase compound. He said that the compound was securely cordoned off.

    ISLAMABAD: The footprints of circumstantial evidence regarding the terrorist attack on the Mehran base clearly show the involvement of Indian intelligence agency, Research and Analysis Wing (RAW).

    Naval base attack: Blaming it on the foreign bogey

    LAHORE: The heads the Jamaat-i-Islami, the Jamaatud Dawa and the Sunni Ittehad Council believe that agents from the United States, Israel or India or all three were behind the attack on the Pakistan Navy airbase in Karachi, not Al Qaeda or the Taliban.

    In a statement issued on Monday, JD chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed said India and America were trying to isolate Pakistan further in the international community by creating unrest in the country.

    He said such attacks were a result of the “friendship” between Pakistan’s rulers and the US. He said no Pakistani city was safe while American forces were present in the country.

    JI chief Syed Munawar Hasan said that the attack on the PNS Mehran was a well-organised act of terrorism and US, Indian and Israeli involvement could not be ruled out. “While the foreign hand is playing with Pakistan’s existence, our intelligence agencies are busy securing US targets and Interior Minister Rehman Malik is defending them by blaming every terrorist activity on Al Qaeda and the Taliban,” he said.

    Hasan said this was the biggest attack on Pakistan’s military since the assault on General Headquarters in Rawalpindi.

    “The enemy is trying to destabilise this country in order to deprive us of our independence and sovereignty,” he said.

    Hasan said that the attack represented a “complete security failure” at the naval base. “It seems that there is no one to defend this country and the enemy can attack anywhere and at any time,” he said.

    He said Malik had always denied that mercenaries from private security firm Blackwater, now knows as XE, were present in Pakistan, but the frequent terrorist attacks here proved that the US Central Intelligence Agency, Blackwater and Indian intelligence had established networks in the country.

    Sunni Ittehad Council chairman Sahibzada Fazle Karim announced a countrywide protest for May 27.

    He said the Indian Research and Analysis Wing, Israel’s Mossad, and the CIA were responsible for the attack.

    He said the civil and military leadership must take measures to secure the country.

    Shouldn't this go into the jokes section?

    On a serious note, I think Pakistan in its entirety is suffering from paranoia. It is a disease. Just like if a sane man is kept in a lunatic asylum for too long, he will turn into a madman, similarly, Pakistanis, after being fed with anti-India, anti-Israel and anti-US sermons for decades have become totally insane.

    Sad but a big threat for us.
