Filth of ISIS has entered Pakistan

Haider Naqvi, May 16, 2015

It has been reported that terrorists have left the pamphlets of ISIS at the crime scene, which have been found later on by security agencies.

Forty-three individuals, including 17 ladies, of the Shia Ismaili group were shot dead on Wednesday morning in an armed assault on their transport close to Safoora Goth. The loss of life rose to 45 after two of the injured passed on Thursday.

“The shadow of Islamic State could be seen behind the Safoora Goth carnage,” said Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) official Raja Umer Khattab, who is helping the ad-hoc team made to investigate the incident.

He said that the pamphlets indicate of ISIS being operational in the city.

“The IS militants are not outsiders; they are local militants motivated and inspired by the self-styled group,” the CTD official said to the media adding that they are learned individuals.

He further said that no any concrete evidence is yet got from which we can establish that Daish or ISIS is active in the city, but there influence is ostensibly emerging overtime.

Answering the question that what would be the special motive of the attack, official said that the attack looks sectarian however it could also have done to create terror and panic.

“Their (militants) main purpose appeared to undermine the morale of law-enforcement agencies by spreading terrorism and weaken the impact of the ongoing targeted operation,” he told the press.

Another investigation officer, on the condition of anonymity, told media that the attackers were on motor-bike and one of them was in the police uniform.

Some groups reportedly have sworn allegiance to the notorious ISIS, who has indiscriminately committed murders and atrocious crimes in the countries of Iraq and Syria. Followers of Lal Masjid have also been seen using the flag of the ISIS, depicting the tendencies in Pakistan of furthering the ideology in the country.

Islamic State a serious threat to Pakistan, Foreign secretary admits

AFP | Reuters | Mateen Haider — Published Feb 23, 2015

ISLAMABAD: The foreign office broke its silence on Monday regarding the Islamic State's (IS) activities inside Pakistan, admitting that the radical Islamist group posed a "serious threat" to the country.

Speaking to the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee at Parliament House today, Foreign Secretary Azaz Ahmed Chaudhry acknowledged IS was indeed a real concern, while simultaneously assuring those present that the government would talk all steps necessary to counter the threat.

"Under UN resolutions, Pakistan is firmly against extremist organisations like ISIL [IS] and is taking all actions to counter them", Chaudhry told the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee.

Chaudhry disclosed that after Operation Zarb-e-Azb was launched in North Waziristan, some extremist elements tried to emerge together on the IS platform, but their efforts were countered.

"There is concern in the Gulf and other Muslim countries about ISIL", the foreign secretary noted.

IS arrests, ongoing activity

Leaflets calling for support for IS were seen in parts of Northwest Pakistan, while Pro-IS slogans have appeared on walls in several cities.....

Expanding the Caliphate

ISIS' South Asia Strategy

By Seth G. Jones

For over a year, the Islamic State (also known as ISIS) has been attempting to expand into South Asia. ISIS has developed a loose organizational structure in Afghanistan and Pakistan, provided money to local groups, and adopted a confrontational approach to the Afghan Taliban and al Qaeda—all on al Qaeda’s home turf, no less. Its goal is straightforward: to co-opt disaffected local militants in an effort to build influence and power in the region.

ISIS in South Asia, which it calls the Islamic State of Khorasan, is larger than most recognize, boasting between several hundred and several thousand fighters. And its push into the subcontinent has led to numerous skirmishes with the Afghan Taliban, the largest and best-organized militant group in Afghanistan. In early June, for example, ISIS and Taliban fighters engaged in pitched battles in Shinwar, Achin, and other districts in Nangarhar province.

Despite these developments, some analysts have dismissed the presence of ISIS in Afghanistan and Pakistan as fictitious at worst or grossly exaggerated at best. In a May article in Al Jazeera, for example, Aimal Faizi, a journalist and former spokesperson for Hamid Karzai, argued that ISIS’ presence in Afghanistan is largely a “manufactured myth,” used by Afghan and U.S. officials for political purposes.

There may be a kernel of truth to his assertion. Some Afghan officials, for instance, have likely exaggerated the presence of ISIS in Afghanistan as a way to pressure Washington to keep U.S. forces in the country or to blame Pakistan for meddling in Afghanistan’s internal affairs. Local authorities have certainly exploited concerns about ISIS to their own advantage: Earlier this year, The New York Times reported that officials in Afghanistan’s Ghazni Province had manufactured a story about ISIS beheadings in an attempt to draw military support from Kabul in 2014.

To be sure, it will be difficult for ISIS’ South Asia branch to dominate the other extremist groups in the region. A variety of competing jihadist organizations already exist there and ISIS’ ideology does not have strong local roots.

Even so, ISIS’ recruitment strategy in the region has already met with some success. As the group gains a toehold among Afghan and Pakistani militants, the region could be in store for more conflict, including between militant groups.

SETTING UP SHOP

In the spring of 2014, as ISIS was consolidating its hold on the city of Raqqa in Syria and expanding into Iraq's Anbar Province, the group's leaders contacted militants in South Asia. ISIS apparently hoped to gauge the possibility of expanding its influence in the region and recruiting fighters to come to Iraq and Syria.

ISIS had just been kicked out of al Qaeda following a series of personal, ideological, and command-and-control disputes. Yet its plan for expansion into Afghanistan and Pakistan followed a strategy its former ally had perfected: try to co-opt local militants. Al Qaeda had done so to great effect in Iraq, Somalia, Yemen, and North Africa, and had thereby avoided the inefficient, labor-intensive process of building foreign affiliates from scratch.

As ISIS leaders began a series of discussions with groups in Egypt (including Ansar Beit al-Maqdis), Libya (including factions of Ansar al-Sharia), and later in Nigeria (including Boko Haram), they also began to contact militants in Afghanistan and Pakistan. South Asia seemed promising for ISIS. The region had a long history of nurturing jihadist groups, dating back to the anti-Soviet wars in the 1980s; relatively weak governments, which provided the opportunity to secure safe havens in areas under limited state control; and ongoing wars against “infidel” regimes and their Western backers.

Pakistan is a magnet for all the extremists groups. A strong attraction.

Huh - in Pakistan the line is getting increasingly blurred and unclear when it comes to distinctions between the various groups such as LeT, AQ, ISIS, LeJ, and the "security agencies" of Pakistan.

few days back, there was this news that the IB had issued an alert that separatist leaders in Kashmir are at risk of being killed by IS; but why would they target these paikhanistaani stooges?!
