Indians – Beware

News just came in that Indian fighter planes have violated Pakistan’s air space at two locations namely Kashmir and Lahore. Pakistan Air Force (PAF), which was already on high alert, entered the scene and ruined the Indian party by forcing their jets to leave Pakistan’s air space. According to geo, the Indian planes were fully equipped with warheads. It was also reported that a loud blast was heard in Arabian Sea between Badin and Jati cities.

The action was a clear sign of a weak enemy and a display of an old Indian habit of “stabbing from the back”. But be careful India – Pakistani forces have the full capability to answer any such aggression on their soil and the results can be more damaging. And just to remind India – YOU are no where close to America, so don’t try and imitate them.

Who was behind Mumbai attacks

Michel Chossudovsky presents his analysis on the Mumbai attacks in this article.

Here is an interesting excerpt from the article

Washington is intent on using the Mumbai attacks to:

  1. Foster divisions between Pakistan and India and shunt the process of bilateral cooperation and trade between the two countries;
  2. Promote internal social, ethnic and sectarian divisions in both India and Pakistan;
  3. Justify US military actions inside Pakistan including the killing of civilians in violation of the country’s territorial sovereignty;
  4. Provide a justification for extending the US led “war on terrorism” into the Indian sub-continent and South East Asia.

India – grow up please

Its about time for India to grow up and stop crying “Pakistan! ISI!” on any mishap that happens within their territory. If they still want to persist with such a failed strategy then kindly bring some sound, logical and strong evidence to support it. A second piece of advice is for the Indian media – hire some good analysts that should have the capability and the ability to think beyond the boundaries and question the baseless evidence(s) provided by the Indian Government. From what I have seen over the past couple of days, the Indian media seems to be on an assigned task to escalate tension between the two countries and to shift the entire blame of the Mumbai incident on to Pakistan’s lap instead of questioning the security failures and identifying the real reasons and beneficiaries of this incident. Why don’t they consider the incident of 2007 Samjhota Express train bombing, which as always was alleged to be carried out by ISI, but proper investigation revealed that an Indian Army Lieutenant, Colonel PS Purohit, was a key man behind the incident.[1] [2]

As for the Indian media, kindly, just for once, think on these lines:

  • If ISI was to carry out such a huge attack, which currently they don’t seem to have any reason for or benefit of, would they would be stupid enough to leave behind any traces(mobile phones, ID cards, etc) that may directly connect to them. Or would they would select such individuals that would open up their mouth immediately on arrest. Thats not a sign of an intelligent or highly specialized intelligence agency as ISI or is it 🙂
  • As for the Indian intelligence and security agencies are concerned, it was a complete failure. What was the Indian Navy doing when the terrorists were travelling (if at all they actually were) from Karachi via sea to reach Mumbai[3] and we are talking about a distance of over 500 nautical miles (900-odd km)[4]. Secondly, the entire Indian police, army, black cap commandos, etc took more than 2 days to control a handful of terrorists – seemed like the terrorists were better planned, trained and equipped than the commandos. Now how can ISI train them better than the local commandos. Anyone willing to answer it? Were the terrorists Pakistanis or locals? And how much ammunition did the terrorists had that they were able to resist for 2 days and how did so much ammunition reached the hotels? The resignation of the home minister, Shivraj Patil, and national security adviser, M.K. Narayanan, also seconds the intelligence and security failure.[5]
  • Most importantly, is Pakistan the real beneficiary of the attacks. If apparently not, then could these be?
    • Indian Government which is now in a position to portray a sorry face to the whole world esp America.
    • Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) which could now adopt their successful nationalist strategy in the upcoming Indian elections.
    • Indian Army esp Colonel PS Purohit after the death of the top police officials, including Mumbai Police Anti-Terror Squad (ATS) chief Hemant Karkaresince[6] who was leading investigations into a number of terrorist attacks most notably Samjhota Express train bombing.

When writing this post I got an email suggesting some interesting facts and images supporting them

Strange that none of the media (TV or Print) have picked this up at
all. Or have they been deliberately ignoring it?

Have a look at the attached pictures of one of the terrorists.

Notice the orange thread / band on his right hand.

Tying a red thread or cord around the wrist is a Hindu practice and it
is unlikely a Muslim, especially one politicized enough to carry out
an attack such as this, would observe it. I think this provides more
evidence that this was a false flag operation or at least an attack by
a non-Muslim group.

Additionally, the terrorists inside the Nariman House Building were
reported to have stocked up on supplies on Wednesday evening, buying
not just food items but liquor, among other things, from a local store

Again, it is highly unlikely that a Muslim, let alone a
‘Mujahid’, and especially one politicized enough to carry out such an
attack, would consume liquor in normal life, let alone hours before
his inevitable ‘martyrdom’.

Mumbai attacks

26th November 2008 caused havoc for the residents of Mumbai when they were put to one of the longest terror attacks witnessed by the city. A handful of terrorists possessing automatic weapons and grenades planned a series of coordinated attacks targetting 10 different locations around the city and held the city captive for more than 24 hours. The locations they targetted included two five star hotels – Taj Mahal Palace Hotel and Oberoi Trident Hotel, a cinema, a café, a train station and other unsecured locations (See SKY news for more details). 

As had been the case with all the previous terrorists attacks in India, a Muslim militant group, Deccan Mujahideen, has claimed responsibility for the attacks and Indian media and analysts are once again blaiming Pakistan for sponsoring it. But these attacks were not typical to their predecessors; they had some striking elements which definitely needs a mention:

  • The attackers did not employed the traditional practice of timed or suicide bombing. Instead they resorted to open fire and threw grenades at their targets without worrying too much about their own lives
  • The main targets were Americans, Britishers and Jews. This sounds something similar to the Al-Qaeda
  • The terrorists held hostage a number of foreigners for hours implying that they were not there just to kill but mainly to terrify
  • The timing of the attacks is also very critical. They happened at a time when 
    • the Pakistani foreign minister was to visit India to meet its counterpart and to discuss the bilateral relations between the two countries
    • there is a change of presidency in America and its new president, Barack Obama, has stressed for a solution of Kashmir
    • the ongoing elections in Jammu and Kashmir is facing a strong boycott

Whats more important are the economic and political wounds that these attacks will inflict. The cricket activities (India-England series, Champions League, ICL) in India have already been suspended. Also the financial activities in the city were at a standstill following the terrorist attacks. Hoping against hope that these attacks are the last of its kind to hit the region.
