Once again anti-Pakistan elements are trying to ignite sectarian violence in Pakistan. The two incidents of similar nature one in Karachi and these blasts in Lahore on the same day are clear indication of this planned conspiracy against Pakistan.
Who made Lahore, a city of ‘Zinda Dillan’ bleed on Wednesday is not a secret any more. It is RAW’s doing can be said without any element of contradiction. This Indian intelligence outfit has been responsible for harbouring terrorist elements in Pakistan and had sponsored various suicide bombings and attacks on religious places including mosques and imambargahs.
Pakistani intelligence agencies have been sending advance information to civil law-enforcing departments that RAW is sponsoring attacks in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Peshawar and other places. However, law enforcers have miserably failed to launch a pre-emptive strike or get hold of those involved is such acts to establish Indian connection.
It was earlier reported on the front page of The Daily Mail that RAW would target Karbala Gamay Shah, mausoleum of Baba Farid Ganj Shakar in Pakpattan and Shah Rukan-e-Alam in Multan. Yet the federal and provincial authorities did not pay any heed to it. Thus, RAW got a free hand to unleash a reign of terror in the Punjab metropolis. One may ask why RAW would carry out such terrorist operations in Pakistan? The answer is simple. The sole purpose is to keep its Pakistani counterpart ISI busy in domestic strife so that it is unable to offer resistance to Indian designs in South Asia in general and Pakistan in particular. And of course RAW’s prime objective always remained to keep Pakistan engulfed with sectarian and ethenic clashes to destablise this country
The history of Indian-sponsored cross-border terrorism in Pakistani towns especially in Karachi, Lahore, Faisalabad and Rawalpindi and federal capital spans over many decades. Be it the bombing spate of 1980s and 1990s or recent incidents of terrorism, RAW’s hand has always been behind these acts. The arrests of saboteurs, both Indians and their local agents and their subsequent confessions show that India is playing a double game by engaging Pakistan in peace talks on one hand and carrying out acts of saboteur on the other.
It was to the credit of the National Assembly that it debated the insurgency in Balochistan and spate of suicide bombings in various parts of the country. During the debate, Interior Minister Rehman Malik demonstrated documentary proofs of Indian intelligence agency RAW being responsible for these terrorist acts. Yet, our leadership could not pick up the guts to publicly accuse India of trying to destabilize Pakistan.
Wednesday’s tragedy claiming a massive human tool and injuring well over 250 persons hopefully would open eyes of our political leadership enabling it to build up strong case at all available international forums. At the same time, all intelligence outfits, military and civil, should focus to pick up the lead launch stringent actions against their Pakistani contacts.
Although, Lahore carried a sad look on Thursday with complete shutter down and protest rallies coming out from different localities, its residents have demonstrated a patience resulting in no untoward incident reported from anywhere. On Wednesday, the aftermath of the suicide bombings, could only be termed as spontaneous reaction by the angry mob.
One most painful aspect of the carnage at Karbala Gamay Shah is that none from the top leadership of PML-N or coalition partner PPP visited the locality to express sympathies to those who lost family members. What could be the cause of this callous attitude remains to be anybody’s guess.
