Raw Plans to launch Kashmir Taliban Group

Source: ‘Only Kashmir’ Wednesday December , 2010
Islamabad, Dec 10 : The Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), a notorious Indian intelligence agency, is likely to launch a fake group of militants namely “Kashmiri Taliban’ to malign the Kashmiris’ peaceful struggle for their right to self-determination, cause commotion in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) and give a new dimension to its orchestrated propaganda against Pakistan as being a state which harbours terrorism.

It has been revealed by a prominent Pakistani journalist, Zahid Malik, in his recent article ‘Kashmiri Taliban in the offing!’ published in daily Pakistan Observer on December 06, 2010. Malik quoting his sources says that the preparatory work in this regard has been completed in all respects and the group will be launched under the guidance of Indian National Security Advisor’s office.

Disclosing further details, he maintains that the so-called Kashmiri Taliban group will openly support an independent Kashmir including Gilgit-Baltistan and Aksai Chin. This will not only create an impression in Pakistan that Kashmiris are no longer interested to join Pakistan but also to create some misunderstanding with its time tested friend China, the author states.

He says that the group will be tasked first to launch a few mock attacks inside India to establish its credibility and then carry out a series of devastating attacks inside Azad Kashmir and even in Pakistan in the name of Islamic Army of Kashmiri Taliban (IAKT) on the pattern of banned so-called Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).

Zahid Malik points out that India will seek support of the United States and other Western countries under the pretext that Kashmiris, Pakistanis and Afghan Taliban are chips of the same block and they need to be crushed simultaneously.
