A man, who has little knowledge of international relations, can easily understand that Pakistan cannot be a beneficiary of the Mumbai incident.
Mumbai blasts & ISI
Karkare had detected the whole plot and was receiving life threats not only from the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders but also from the Indian army to stop the Samjhota Express investigations. Despite receiving threat, Karkare refused to bow before these threats and laid down his life in the line of his duty. Karkare sought the security for him and his family from an American diplomat as he feared that the army and establishment would kill him. After his murder at the hands of Indian army officials, Karkare’s father refused to receive condolences from the Indian government and his widow declined to accept the offer of monetary reward.
HR violations in Kashmir
Now contrary to the Indian plan, the Wikileaks’ has described Indian Army’s involvement in the gross human rights violations in Indian-held Kashmir. The cable urged the US to secretly divert UN attention towards the genocide of innocent Kashmiris at the hands of Indian Army and also suggested that Washington should avoid holding any joint military exercise with the Indian army until it stops inhuman activities there. It has gone to the extent of equating Lt. Gen HS Panag, the then GOC-in-Chief of the Northern Command of the Indian Army with General Milosevic of Bosnia with regard to butchering Muslims in war crimes.
Indian hand in Balochistan
This fact has been confirmed in the Wikileaks cable from Islamabad that there were enough evidences of Indian involvement in Waziristan and other tribal areas of Pakistan as well as Balochistan.
Now to facilitate our valued readers we are reproducing text of the Wikileaks story appeared in The Daily Mail:
These findings indicate that Wikileaks reveal that a cable sent from a US Mission in India termed former
Yet another cable suggested that the current Army Chief of Indian General VK Singh was having an aggressive approach and believes that â€œoffense is the best defenceâ€. General Singh has also been described as â€œPakistan, China centricâ€, with an added aggression towards China. The cable mentioned General Singh as an egotist, self-obsessed, petulant and idiosyncratic General, a braggadocio and a show-off, who has been disliked (and barely tolerated) by all his subordinates. An earlier cable described Indian Army in gross Human rights violations in Indian Held part of Jammu and Kashmir while some Lt. Gen HS Panag, the then GOC-in-Chief of the Northern Command of the Indian Army was equated with General Milosevic of Bosnia with regard to butchering Muslims through war crimes.
The cable urged Washington to secretly divert UN attention towards the genocide of innocent civilians in Held Kashmir on the hands of Indian Army and also suggested that US should avoid holding any joint drill with Indian army until it stops inhuman activities in Kashmir. The cable termed one Lt. Col. AK Mathur as ‘Devil’s Advocate’ at Srinagar. Another cable indicated involvement of top Indian Army leadership in engaging Hindu extremist militants to carry out certain terror operations to keep Indian Muslims on the back foot and to keep pressure on neighbouring Pakistan’s army and intelligence agencies, particularly the Inter Services Intelligence. The cable did confirm the active presence of ISI in India but it refused to confirm any involvement of ISI in any terror incident across India and did confirm intelligence collection by its agents and operatives. Another cable confirmed that there was a nexus of top Indian army officials and extremist Hindu outfits. This cable suggested that an Indian Police officer, a counter terror specialist with the name of Hemant Karkare had exposed this nexus to some extent when he arrested a serving Colonel of Indian Army, Lt. Colonel Purohit for blazing a Pakistan-bound train (Samjhota Express).
The cable suggested that Hemant Karkare held a secret meeting with a senior US diplomat at New Delhi during the national day reception of a friendly country and briefed him about the gravity and the growing depth of the nexus between top Indian army leadership and the militant Hindu fanatic groups. Karkare sought the security for him and his family from the said American diplomat as he feared that the army and establishment would eliminate him as intended to move further to expose the network.
He had further briefed the said US diplomat that a former Commander in Chief of the Central Command of the Indian army, Lt. General P.N Hoon was heading the militancy wing of the Hindu extremists and was getting full tactical, logistic and financial support from senior army officers. The day, Karkare was eliminated in a pre-planned ambush during the Mumbai attacks; a cable sent to the US read we have lost an important link and a vital evidence. Another cable sent to Washington termed Hindutva brotherhood in general and Shiv Sena in particular, as ticking time bombs with regard to militancy and terrorism. It was suggested that fund raisers like Hindu Students Council of America etc should be banned to raise funds as they were generating funds for the Hindu militant outfits under the garb of charity.
Another file dubs Hindutva Brotherhood as a far bigger threat to regional and global peace that Taliban, al Qaeda and LeT and the later three were declared as ‘peanuts’ if equated with Hindutva Brotherhood and Sangh Parivaar and Washington was urged to take up the issue with New Delhi. Another cable expressed grave concern over Indian government’s ability to handle naxal insurgency movement as 80 per cent of Indian nuclear and missile facilities were present in the insurgency hit areas of India while the Indian security forces were totally helpless in ensuring the writ of the government in that particular area, known as the ‘Red Corridor of India’.
Another cable from Islamabad suggested that there were enough evidences of Indian involvement in Waziristan and other tribal areas of Pakistan as well as Balochistan. ISI Chief General Ahmad Shuja Pasha’s extension in services was termed as a good omen in one such cable and it was added that his further presence on the scene would enhance the agency’s abilities to combat anti-terror war. An earlier cable did rule out any direct or indirect involvement of ISI in 26/11 under Pasha’s command while Mumbai’s dossier, based on prime accused Ajmal Kasab’s confessional statement was termed funny and ‘shockingly immature’. Another cable confirmed the interception of radio communication by Pakistani and NATO forces in regional Indian languages in the Waziristan agencies.
