New Delhi: Cornered internationally on the Jammu and Kashmir issue, Pakistan is now trying to regroup terrorists, inciting them to attack India.
According to an ANI report from Muzafffarbad in Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir (POK), terror outfits are aiming to launch a “jihad” against India.
The Pakistani officials have been spotted inciting terror groups like Hizb ul- Mujahideen and United Jihad Council (UJC), headed by Syed Salahuddin, to surface from hiding and target India which has recently abrogated the Article 370 and Article 35-A of the Constitution to abolish the “special status” enjoyed by J&K for the last 70 years.
On August 14, Pakistan’s Independence Day, Khalid Saifulla, deputy chief of Hizb ul-Mujahideen, along with former terrorists, took out an anti-India protest march outside the Muzaffarabad Press Club where he gave a call for jihad against India.
In a hate-speech against India, Saifulla said the outfits are ready for jihad, and assured Salahuddin of support, asking him to march ahead.
He also praised former military dictator General Zia Ul-Haq for “threatening” India with war and quoted from what he told the then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi: “Mr Rajiv, if you want to invade, go ahead! But remember that the people will forget Changez Khan and Halaqu Khan and will remember only Zia and Rajiv Gandhi because it will not be a conventional war.”
“Pakistan may possibly suffer annihilation but Muslims will still survive because there are several Muslim countries. But remember there is only one India and I shall wipe out Hinduism and Hindu religion from the face of the earth! And if you don’t order complete de-escalation and demobilization before my return to Pakistan, the first word of mouth I will utter will be “Fire”!”
It is well known that terrorists of all hues continue to openly hold rallies in Pakistan despite Islamabad being on the Grey List of Financial Action Task Force (FATF), the international watchdog against money-laundering and financing of terrorism.This is not the first time Pakistan has found itself on one of FATF lists. The country was there in 2008 and from 2012 to 2015 too.
