By Dr Shahid Qureshi: –
The terrorist attack in Mustug that killed Siraj Raisani and 200 innocent civilians was not a random but full-fledged multi intelligence agencies-based operation because in an area where population is so sketchy one need human, electronic as well as aerial intelligence. These groups are not equipped or have this type of resources. The target must have been selected long before like the killing of Haroon Balur in KPK province. Both these gentlemen were true patriotic Pakistanis and soldiers against terrorism.
The terrorist attack on the election meeting of a pro Pakistan and patriot Nawabzada Siraj Raisani in Mastung, a small town of Baluchistan province of Pakistan which left over 200 people dead and hundreds injured. A dodgy organisation called ISIS claimed responsibility which is operating in Afghanistan under occupation of the US and NATO forces since 2001. Targeting of Pro Pakistan and patriotic politicians in Baluchistan is part of international agenda to sabotage CPEC project, destabilise Pakistan and support the separatist terrorist elements.
However, elements in Pakistani media open their mouth without even understanding the whole event and risk assessment as well as official report. The impression they create: (a) that Pakistan agencies are incompetent (b) Sunni Madrssas are behind this (c) state has failed to protect its people. They don’t understand that intelligence agencies are not police and operational bodies. It is police’s responsibility to carry out operations on the information, but these anchors stupidly think that: ‘an intelligence operative who has infiltrated in the terrorist group when reporting also stop the operation’. Pakistan need a strong and effective corruption free police force on the ground in all cities and towns.
Theses anchors with no media training are part of the problem instead part of the solution now. For example, Mehar Bukhari was talking in a program with Mohammad Mailck last night on 14 July 2018 about the Madrrassas in Baluchistan and some Sunnni group. This is absolutely nonsense and she (Mehar Bukhari) was bailing out the hostile Indian agencies based in Afghanistan.
Some people have observed that these anchors coming from minority sect background keep supporting and toeing the Indian lines with their sectarian bias. That must stop by their training and coaching. Their inflated ego and arrogance is being used by the enemy agencies. They should educate themselves and read the following statement.
“The Muslim Terrorist Apparatus was Created by US Intelligence as a Geopolitical Weapon”, Said Zbigniew Brzezinski in an Interview with Le Nouvel Observateur’s Published 15-21 January 1998, Translated by Jean Martineau makes clear.
Well lets starts with Afghan Mujahidins, later know as Taliban further rebranded Al-AQeeda and now also known as (aka) Daesh or ISIL. The US & European States are still using Brzezinski’s Muslim terrorist strategy.
As per following ‘Brzezinski Doctrine’, Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yeman, Saudi Arabia are victims and target of the US policy. The US is in habit putting too much pressures on it friends until they collapse, damaged and destroyed. We have no reason not to believe US President Jimmy Carter’s National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski who reportedly said that US lured the Soviets into Afghanistan trap and give USSR its Vietnam.
Raisanis are true patriots Pakistanis and that is one of the reasons they are targeted. Pakistani army Chief Gen Qamar Bajawa while attending his funeral called Siraj Raisani a ‘Soldier of Pakistan’.
