    Asks Neighbour To Take Action Against Jihadis Using Its Soil

    After courting Pakistan for more than a year, President Ashraf Ghani of Afghanistan changed course on Monday and warned that he would lodge a complaint with the United Nations Security Council if Pakistan refuses to take military action against Taliban commanders operating from its soil to wage an increasingly deadly insurgency across Afghanistan.

    Ghani has taken pains to persuade Pakistan's leadership, particularly its powerful military, to bring the insurgent leaders to the negotiating table. But an increase in Taliban violence has forced Ghani to effectively end what has been a cornerstone effort of his troubled presidency . “I want to make it clear that we do not expect Pakistan to bring the Taliban to talks,“ Ghani said on Monday in a rare joint session of the two houses of the Afghan parliament. He said that in quadrilateral talks over the past year that involved the US and China, Pakistan had pledged “in writing“ to go after Taliban leaders who refuse to join the peace process.

    “We want the Pakistanis to fulfill their promises in the quadrilateral and take military action against those who have their centres in Pakistan and whose leaders are in Pakistan based on our security organisations, the intelligence of our international partners, and the words of Pakistan officials,“ Ghani said.

    “If we do not see a change, despite our hopes and efforts for regional cooperation, we will be forced to turn to the UN Security Council and launch serious diplomatic efforts.“
    In his address on Monday , Ghani called the insurgents terrorists who “take pleasure in the torn-up bodies of our innocents,“ and their leaders “slavelike“ and involved in narcotics mafias.

    Jaish building a 10-acre madrassa in Pak

    Jaish-e-Mohammad terror group is constructing a massive new madrassa, spread over about 10 acres outside the garrison city of Bahawalpur in Pakistan's Punjab province, extending its reach in the country despite a ban by the UN and the US.

    JeM is led by Masood Azhar, one of the most-wanted terrorists by India. “On a recent visit, a bearded gunman lounged by the entrance of Jaishe-Mohammad's four-story compound downtown, which also houses an affiliated seminary,“ the Wall Street Journal reported. A sign outside the JeM complex in Bahawalpur says it houses a madrassa “under the guidance“ of Azhar. “Outside the town, an even bigger Jaish installation is under construction, spread over at least 10 acres just off a highway. A new madrassa, crowned with white domes, loomed over the surrounding farmland,“ the paper reported. “We don't hide who we are. We are a jihadist group,“ the paper quoted a cleric affiliated with JeM as saying.

    Pakistan as a nation has become a joke!

    And India still expects action by Pakistan against terrorist Masood Azhar! We are living in a dreamworld.
