Latest Indian Drama: ‘Rocket Attack’ At Wagah


Dan Qayyum | PakistanKaKhudaHafiz.com

In an attempt to make the most of Indian Home Minister P Chidambaram’s visit to the US, India has alleged being attacked by Pakistani rangers in the Wagah sector using ’several rockets’.

Staging false flag attacks is nothing new for Indians when trying to paint Pakistanis as terrorists while in high-profile talks with American leaders.

Lets rewind to year 2000: Chattisinghpora, Occuped Kashmir – On the eve of then US President Bill Clinton’s visit to India, 35 Kashmiri Sikhs were massacred in cold blood by Indian security forces posing as Kashmiri Freedom Fighters. The usual ‘Lashkar-e-Tayba militants’ were rounded up and executed in fake-encounters, the ‘Pakistani National’ was produced, ensuring Clinton’s entire visit focused on what India calls ‘Pakistan-backed terrorism’. It was only much later when the damage was done that the truth of the massacre came out, implicating Indian soldiers and intelligence agencies in this heinous crime.

The Indians security forces went a step ahead in their brutality back then. Kashmiris protesting the deaths of five innocent muslims in fake encounters right after the massacre, were fired upon murdering a further eight, and bringing the total toll of this massacre closer to fifty.

P Chidambaram has ensured his entire trip to the United States was focused on Pakistan’s alleged lack of seriuosness in dealing with the ‘Mumbai attackers’, and the recent allegations of rocket attacks provides the perfect backdrop to India’s persecution complex.

Pakistan calls India’s bluff.

Pakistan has officially offered to hold an open debate with the Indian home minister over the probing of Mumbai attacks.

Interior Minister Rehman Malik said, “I am ready for the debate anywhere in India, Pakistan or wherever his Indian counterpart likes.”

Talking to journalists in Islamabad, Malik started off by pointing out that the first formal response to Pakistan’s February 9 request for information came on June 20th and that too was in Marathi language. Besides citing other Indian lapses, he pointed out that India refused to share the Samjotha Express dossier which was of critical importance as “a friendly country, which is also close to India, had told us that one of the Mumbai terrorists was also involved in the Mumbai incident”.

Malik said he had received the latest Indian dossier in which the Indians have provided us with a statement from Ajmal Kasab, who claims now speaking to Hafiz Saeed when he was in Mumbai.

‘Initially the Indians said Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi was the mastermind and we arrested him… now they have started saying that Hafiz Saeed is the mastermind,’ Malik said.
