Rawalpindi, July 16: The Daily Jang in its today’s editorial says that the Indian home ministry former officer has opened a new chapter in the skeptic Pak-India relations by making startling revelation that incumbent governments of India under a well-planned policy had orchestrated the 2001 terror attack on Parliament and the 26/11 carnage in Mumbai and put the blame on Pakistan. Reported by KMS.
The newspaper says that the former home ministry under-secretary, signed the affidavits submitted in court in a fake police encounter case, has said that a member of probe team comprising Indian intelligence agencies, told him that both the terror attacks were set up “with the objective of strengthening the counter-terror legislation.
It merits a mention here, the editorial adds, that Ajmal Qasab, a Pakistani citizen, and Muhammad Afzal Guru, a Kashmiri, have been executed after being implicated in Mumbai and Parliament attack cases, respectively. The Indian government raised a storm of blame game against Pakistan on these two accounts and created a war-like situation by deploying its forces on Pakistani borders, particularly after the parliament attack. At the same time, New Delhi paved the way for a military operation in occupied Kashmir by introducing anti-terror act, Pota.
It is deplorable if India orchestrated these two incidents to malign Pakistan in the comity of nations and step up military operations in occupied Kashmir, says the editorial. The incidents claimed not only scores of innocent lives but also undermined the efforts aimed at bringing peace to the Sub-continent, it added.
