‘Taliban backed by RAW trained Wah bombers’

By Our Correspondent

TAXILA, Aug 25: The two suicide bombers who blew themselves at the Pakistan Ordnance Factories (POF) gates in Wah Cantonment last week were trained in Miramshah, the main town of North Waziristan Agency, by the Pakistani Taliban allegedly supported by the Indian intelligence agency – Research and Analysis Wing (RAW).

Officials privy to investigations told this reporter on condition of anonymity that the bombers were aged between 17 and 20 and they were natives of Khyber Agency.

According to the officials, the detained would-be suicide bomber, who identified himself as Hameedullah, revealed some stunning facts about the activities and involvement of proxy Taliban in the tribal areas of Pakistan.

Hameedullah described how the Taliban trained and provided arms and ammunition to the militants. They have also hired psychologists who brainwash innocent youth from different seminaries and transform them into hard-line militant or “Fidayeen”.

The officials said Hameedullah was arrested while trying to flee from the scene of the blasts in a taxi. Soon after the incident, law-enforcement agencies seized an explosive-vest that the suspect had left in a toilet at a mosque located close to the POF complex.

During initial interrogation, the man confessed that he wanted to blow himself up at the arms factory but lost heart at the last moment.

The officials declined to give more details because it could affect the ongoing investigation.

However, they said there was an overwhelming body of evidence showing that RAW and the Afghan intelligence agencies had stepped up their activities in Pakistan.

“RAW and the Afghan intelligence agencies are very much active in the tribal areas. Several Afghan agents have been arrested and they confessed that they were trained by the Indians in Afghanistan,” the officials said.

“There are more than 10,000 Indian soldiers in Afghanistan, ostensibly to protect engineers involved in road building activities. But, in fact, most of them are spies and there maybe thousands more who are causing carnage in Pakistan” they added.

Comments: (a) Have Taliban started operating in Karachi? and (b) How many kinds of Taliban are there and backed by whom?

I think the answer to the first is 'Yes'. And to the second is at-least half a dozen, backed by as many State Powers.

its a very old paki line that indians and are behind the suicide blasts , so this appears to be a cooked up punjab police crap...total lies....even if indians are doing this kind of op , they are doing it disguised as islamists and not as indians,so this poor mans confession that indians trained him is absolute bullshit

Moscow Order Foreign Ministry To Start Establishing Diplomatic Relations With S. Ossetia/Abkhazia...

...And Says if the West Wants Another Cold War, the Russians are Ready

Neither headline needs analysis. This and the following story are from Times London

Russian Kabul Ambassador Says Transit Deal Is Dead As the security of the Coalition land supply route became shakier with each passing month thanks to the trouble in Pakistan and the increasing control of the Taliban in the East/South of Afghanistan, Coalition reached agreement with Moscow for an alternate route through Russia and Turkmenistan.

Now the Russian ambassador in Kabul says the deal is dead. NATO is waiting word from Moscow on the situation.

Let's be honest, you can't threaten Russia with NATO on the one hand and then ask Russian help in furthering a NATO mission in Afghanistan.

karachi is the biggest pashtun city in the world .it contains all pashtun tribes so the taliban can easily launch an operation in karachi.but then why karachi .why not other more deserted places on the 1800 km route ? and then all major transporters are from tribal areas or pashtuns ...and with good links with talibs ...this could have been sponsored by a state actor aslso

Thanks Pavo.

Just one thing. Indian Intelligence, according to much evidence, has been active with both BLA in Baluchistan, as well as the MQM militancy in the 90s.

What's your view of, say, support to BLA?

Pavo,

Re: "but then why karachi .why not other more deserted places on the 1800 km route?"

If you recall, threats had been posted on walls in the truckers' area of Shirin Jinnah Colony a while ago. It clearly said anyone transporting Nato goods will be killed and his truck burnt.

Do you think it was to make good on the threat?
