A Shock to Indian Diplomacy - Mumbai Drama

By Zaheerul hassan


On February, 2009 Bangladeshi Foreign Minster Mr. Hassan committed that Mumbai Drama was planned on their land. Unfolding of this issue slowly and gradually is continuously causing embracement and giving shock to New Delhi on diplomatic and international fronts. According to Press Trust of India on February 17,2009   BJP leader L K Advani  demanded  thorough judicial inquiry into the Mumbai terror attack since  it could not have taken place without local support. The ruling Congress is still not accepting the actual facts and is trying to hide the failure of their intelligence agencies.  The maligning Pakistan and ISI in Mumbai issue has again proved a cock tail story and blame game.


Rehman Malik, interior advisor to Prime Minister, stated in a Press Conference in Islamabad that terrorist attack in Mumbai was planned in a number of countries, including Austria, Spain, Italy, Russia, US and Pakistan but reportedly the attackers had gone to Mumbai from Thatta Coast near Karachi. He also revealed that stern actions would be taken against the culprits as per territorial law. The FIR has been lodged against nine suspects. Six have been taken into custody, including the alleged mastermind Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi. The actions of Pakistan clearly depict that government means business and her agencies have carried out proper investigation.
On February 14, Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir briefed foreign envoys on the steps taken by it to cooperate with India in bringing the perpetrators of the Mumbai attacks to justice and to eliminate terrorism and militancy. Meanwhile, US and several other countries have welcomed the outcome of Pakistan's probe into the Mumbai incident, especially its recognition that the attack was partly planned in Pakistan. US State Department spokesman Robert Wood while addressing the newsmen in Washington declared that Pakistan is committed to do 'everything in its power' to bring the culprits to justice particularly those 'living within their borders', Pakistan has also handed over a dossier to New Delhi to seek answers of 30 questions that have cropped up during the investigations for further probe into the attack. Islamabad has also demanded that Ajmal Kassab and other persons involved in the Mumbai episode be handed over to it for further and detailed interrogation. Pakistan has adopted a constructive, proactive, well-coordinated and coherent regional approach to deal with the Mumbai Issue. The diplomatic corps and world's leadership expressed satisfaction over Pakistan action but on the other hand India is yet to proceed further and is just carrying on media warfare. Whereas, the responsibility displayed by Pakistan government on February, 12 do demand reciprocal actions from India too. She must take steps to stop state terrorism against minorities and Kashmiris. But the current statements of Indian interior and foreign ministers reflect that New Delhi is not serious in cooperating with Pakistan.
Therefore it would be the duty of world community to pressurize India for handing over Col Purohit to Pakistan so that justice be granted to the victims of Samjhota Express. The United Nations Organisation should also ask so-called secular state to ban Hindu extremists groups that are operating under the leadership of Bal Thackeray since over 200 million Muslims, Christians and Sikhs have been targeted by these Hindu organizations. According to media reports, on February 13, President Zardari chaired a conference in Islamabad which was attended by Prime Minister Gillani, Ashfaq Pervez Kayani, the Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) and Lt General Ahmed Shuja Pasha, Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief. The meeting reviewed the current security situation and Indian response to Pakistani investigations over Mumbai attacks. ISI chief Gen Ahmed Shuja Pasha gave a detailed briefing on the current situation in Swat and FATA and the ongoing efforts of law enforcement agencies to restore normalcy in the troubled areas. President Zardari expressed satisfaction with the ongoing actions against the Taliban, and vowed to eliminate insurgency. He paid tribute to the bravery and patriotism of the members of law enforcement agencies and ISI while saying that many of them had laid down their lives and many more had been injured inthe line of duty. "They are our heroes," he said. In fact India is indulging in anti-Pakistan activities.
Several training camps are being maintained all along the western border and these are being used as launching pads for terrorist activities in Pakistan. She is busy in blame game against Islamic nuclear state for destabilizing it. As per Hindustan Times its extremists have started advocating the severing of ties with Pakistan and accusing Islamabad of failure to initiate action against perpetrators of the Mumbai carnage and handing over of wanted terrorists. The paper further alleged that the Mumbai attacks were planned with military precision under the guidance of Pakistani establishment and the ISI. The point of view of the second largest party in relation to minorities is quite discouraging because it amounts to storming terrorism. The point be noted here that Pakistan itself is facing acute terrorism all over its territory. There is a need to find out the actual root cause of terrorism so that the same be eliminated. The main cause of spreading terrorism in South Asian Region is depriving rights of minorities in India, crushing Muslims, Sikhs and Parsies, poverty, lack of education, lack of national interests and new RAW-sponsored sabotage activities in neighbouring States. The reason of unrest in Pakistan and India is Kashmir issue. Thus there is a need to resolve this matter permanently. The composite dialogues should be restarted so that bi-lateral issue could be resolved immediately. The termination of peace talks on Kashmir has once again pushed the issue into dark abyss. India is the "most dangerous country" in the world. It has everything from nuclear weapons to extremism which gives "an international migraine". Probably Indian leadership has thought that it is the right time to establish her regional hegemony under the garb of Mumbai drama.
Bal Thackeray, India's Hindu terrorist too has advised his government to attack Pakistan without warning. He also stated that he is proud of extremist Hindus if at all they have launched Mumbai attacks. His statements do reflect the exact mentality of extremist thoughts. Earlier reports are there that US had asked Islamabad to allow New Delhi to attack some selected targets in Pakistan and later should not retaliate. Whether these reports are correct or not but the fact is that President Zardari, democratic government and Armed forces chiefs have loudly and clearly stated that Pakistan will retaliate with its full force if any aggression was imposed on her. The Prime Minister also sounded in a clear tone that any surgical strike by India in response to the Mumbai terror attacks would be seen as an "act of war" and will be dealt with accordingly. India has started proxy wars in the region. The first proxy militia - Mukti Bahini in East Pakistan - was created and used by India in 1971 to invade Pakistani territory. And again, in Balochistan, India and the Soviets created and armed a Baloch 'liberation army'. Then in 1989 the Americans left Afghanistan and ran away, leaving Pakistan to worry about the results. In short, it's difficult to bring peace without settling the regional issues for example, Kashmir, and water conflicts. It may be recalled that David Miliband during his recent visit to India had called for resolution of the long-standing Kashmir dispute to bring lasting peace in the region. The Indian political pundits should pressurize their government and ask it to cooperate with Pakistan in elimination of regional terrorism. Pakistan is determined to eradicate the problems but her rival is not likely to show responsibility in resolving major regional issue i.e. Kashmir, water disputes and stopping Hindu extremists from terrorism against minorities

 In short, India faced terrible failure on Mumbai Issue, LTTE defeat and other regional matters. RAW supported by Hindu Taliban is deceiving her government, national and international community from actual root cause of the problem .i.e. communal violence and terrorism against minorities.
