With The Burden of RAW and Incompetence, Afghan Army's Anger over Pakistan!

                On 21 April 2017, approximately ten persons wearing Afghan Army uniforms riding three military vehicles crossed all the check posts and reached Corps Headquarters of 209 Corps in Northern Province of Balkh. Two out of these ten were wearing suicide jackets. They blew them up on the Central gate. Remaining entered into the complex firing bullets from their automatic weapons and divided themselves into two groups. One group entered into the mosque and killed Afghan soldiers present there; no one was able to react. The other group entered in the Mess hall and killed everyone present there. More than 50 Afghan soldiers were killed in the bomb blast at the Central gate. Although the Afghan soldiers on the security did their best but the battle continued till evening. All the terrorists were killed, however, according to some news one terrorist was arrested alive. According to the reports of Afghan govt. approximately 160 soldiers were killed. The end of the report contained a note that the number of deaths might be higher. American media reported the number of deaths up to 200. Afghan Taliban claimed to have killed more than 500 Afghan soldiers.
Afghan Army Chief,  Defense Minister resign over Mazar-i-Sharif attack.
                On the 2nd day i.e. 22 April 2017, American media reported that Afghans have run short of coffins for the burial of killed soldiers in Mazar Shareef, the provincial capital of Balkh. After two days, Voice of America told that the number of Afghan soldiers killed was 250 expressing concerns that internal situation has been at its worst in the entire Afghan army. It termed the attempt to hide the number of deaths as the failure of Afghan govt. Afghan TV was telecasting the details of 260 soldiers whose coffins have been sent to their local areas of ten provinces.
                Afghan Taliban termed their attack as the biggest achievement of the history. While handing over the command of the Afghan army to Afghans, US Generals have accepted the responsibility for the military capabilities of Afghan army on whose training the US spent billions of dollars during the last two decades. They were armed with latest weapons and communication system. Now Americans are telling us that US trained soldiers are not capable of fighting. 40% army exists only in the papers whose salaries and other facilities budget goes into the pockets of Afghan Generals and Ministers. The weapons issued in the names of these ghost soldiers are sold to warlords and smugglers of illegal weapons. Some of these weapons are smuggled out of Afghanistan while rest falls into the hands of Afghan Taliban. Afghan youngsters become the part of the Afghan army to get the latest weapons and as soon as they are given weapons they flee with it.
Afghan National Army  (ANA) troops keep watch near the site of a Taliban attack on army headquarters in Mazar-e-Sharif, northern Afghanistan.
                The attack in the Central cantonment in Balkh province is the result of these weaknesses of the Afghan army. After this attack, Afghan army’s chief and Minister of Defense were forced to resign. Including Corps Commander of 209 Corps, many other Afghan General were removed. Now Americans are investigating that how did Taliban succeed in crossing all the security check posts. Who led them towards the mosque and mess hall after crossing central gate as these two buildings are located at the end of the cantonment. In order to access, these building one should have knowledge of the ways. Investigators claim that Taliban attackers were supported by more than one person inside the cantonment.
                Analysts are also thinking about it that why did not Taliban attack US and NATO soldiers present in the cantonment present there for training while their offices and residential complex were near the main gate. US Defense Secretary Jim Mates has declared upcoming months difficult for the US and NATO soldiers present in the Afghanistan as well as for Afghan army.
Bullet holes are seen on the wall of a mosque at the military headquarters where the Taliban attack in Mazar-i-Sharif, northern Afghanistan.
                In such a situation why Afghan govt. is angry over Pakistan? No doubt the attack over Afghan govt. was devastating which has been condemned by Pakistan as well. After this attack, neither both Washington and Pentagon have expressed concerns regarding Pakistan nor have defense analysts of Western Media alleged Pakistan as they use to do. This is a reality that Pakistan has destroyed the secret militant hideouts without any differentiation. Due to which American and Western commanders have visited these secret hideouts themselves and praised the achievements of Pakistan army.
                Why Afghan army started unprovoked firing and bombardment on Chaman border which claimed lives of 18 people injuring approximately 50. This attack was on the teams conducting the census. The martyred and injured included women and children as well. Moreover, over the KPK border, Afghan army also started unprovoked shelling which targeted check posts of Pakistan army. Here we are not concerned that how Pakistan army reacted. Astonishingly, that Afghan army is attacking Pakistan army whose Defense Minister and COAS along with dozen Generals have been removed from their designation due to unprofessionalism, incompetence, lack of war capabilities and corruption. How they thought of attacking Pakistan army facing war for last 15 years equipped with nuclear and other lethal weapons? Afghan army who lost an important District Sangin in Helmand province on 23 March 2017 in the hands of Taliban which was termed as a big shock for the USA in Kabul. In order to be in control of this district, US and NATO have sacrificed lives. Now the USA has to take back the control in Helmand province from Afghan army on 29th April 2017.
                The answer to these questions is that Afghan army is not capable of any misadventure against Pakistan. Behind such misadventures are Afghan NDS. NDS is controlled by Indian RAW. India wants to engage Pakistan army on the Western border as well like she has engaged Pakistan army on Eastern borders. Now whether India wants to do so in order to divert the attention of International community from atrocities committed by Indian army against Kashmiris in Indian Held Kashmir or the role of Pak army in the internal situation of Pakistan???

Kulbhushan Yadev is a Terrorist!

Mata Hari

                Mata Hari is a name not known to everyone in our country but in the , West especially in Britain and France, once this name has legendary importance. Not only novels have been written on her but dozens of movies have been made as well. In the decade of 1910, Mata Hari had uncountable fans including the majority of western lords and elite. Leaders of many countries longed to spend time with her. She was a famous dancer of France who was famous for her beauty. The actual name of Mata Hari belonging from Netherlands was “Margaretha Geertruida” famous among higher govt. officials and generals of the army. In January 1917, French army intercepted a secret message in which secret information about French army was being transmitted to German army in the German language from Paris to Berlin.  The sender of the message was a female introducing herself as H-21 (code name). This was a big challenge for French intelligence agencies to find out the female spy among them. After long time and efforts when they came to knew that she was Mata Hari it was unbelievable for them. French army Generals were worried about the secrets that might have been spoken by them while being intoxicated with wine spending their evenings with Mata Hari. After various verifications when it was verified that the spy was actually Mata Hari. She was arrested on 13 February 1917 from a hotel in Paris when she was transmitting the message to German army via radio. After arrest, she confessed her crime that she was a spy of the German army. She was trialed by French army court and was sentenced to death for causing damage to France. On 15th September 1917 she was shot dead by firing squad.

 In 1942, KGB of Soviet Union succeeded in Julies and Ethel (husband-wife) of USA were hired as agents. They were linked with the secret nuclear program of USA. Their duties were to type the developments in the nuclear program. Secret information was transferred to Moscow. Even the design of US Nuclear program was transferred as well. When Moscow started the nuclear program on the lines of US Nuclear Program, Julies and Ethel were pointed out. FBI arrested them in 1951, both were trialed and sentenced to death working for the enemy and spying for the enemy. They were electrocuted on the electric chair in 1953.

 In 1985, American CIA sent her agent Aldrich Ames to Ankara, Turkey so that he can patronize Soviet Secret Agencies’ agents to work for CIA. KGB personnel were his special target. After being deployed in Ankara, Ames was given the responsibility of whole Europe as well. Due to his appointment, he got access to the secret information that who are working for CIA in the Soviet Union in which areas of Soviet Union. In spite of fulfilling his duties, Ames became an agent of KGB as he fell in love with a beautiful Russian woman and working for KGB. In order to prove his love for the lady, he provided her with the name and addresses of CIA agents in Russia. Soviet Union killed approximately 100 CIA agents which jolted CIA. The sudden increase in assets raised suspicions over Ames. He was called back to the USA and arrested. He was very hard and clever, he succeeded in cheating the lie detection machine twice. However, he does not have any documentary evidence to justify the sudden increase in his wealth. So he was trialed for treason and sentenced to life imprisonment.
Aldrich Ames, CIA agent to Ankara

                On 24 January 2017, arrest of 4 Russian officers linked with Cyber Security in Moscow jolted Western media. Journalists were struggling to get the reason for arrests. Everyone was aware that they were arrested under allegations of spying for USA. It was also reported that they have provided secret information about Hacking and Cyber crimes to USA. But no one knew the sensitivity and nature of the information. Sergei Mikhailov one of the arrested was the Higher officer of Federal Security Service who transferred secret information to CIA exploiting his designation. Russian govt. was of the view that the four arrested had no link with one another. They were under observation due to internal matters and investigations were going on against them. They were arrested and now facing treason charges. According to some analysts these arrests created problems for USA. USA blamed Russia for interfering in Elections resulting in the winning of elections by Donald Trump. Due to which tensions between Washington DC and Moscow has increased.
                Last year on 6 August 2016, Iran executed one of its nuclear scientists alleged for transferring secret information regarding nuclear developments and military secrets. Shahram Ameeri, Nuclear Scientist of Iran was under observation for a long time ago. Iranian secret agencies developed suspicions over Ameeri when in 2009 during Hajj he suddenly disappeared. After one year his video message was received by Iranian govt. in which he claimed that he has been kidnapped CIA and tortured mentally as well as physically. According to him, CIA offered him money as well which he declined. According to Iranian news reports after one month of the video message he arrived at Pakistan embassy in USA working as mediator between USA and Iran due to suspension of diplomatic relations between both countries.  Shahram Ameeri was welcomed as a hero on his return to Iran. However, after one year he was arrested by Iranian agencies, trialed for treason and executed.

Shahram Ameeri, Nuclear Scientist of Iran hanged for treason
                This was the time when USA removed sanctions over Iran in exchange of release of 4 american spies. USA not only removed sanctions but also released frozen funds of 400 million dollars belonging to Iran. Much protest was observed in the USA and Obama was criticized for it. White House was of the view that after signing of deal with USA, Britain, Russia, China, France and Germany  by Iran, her funds have been released.
                Above quoted few incidents from the world of spying prove that death is the end of the spies who are arrested. They all were lower level spies and majority was traitors who turned against their own motherland. They shared the secrets of their country with enemy and were executed on arrest. If we look at the history, it is obvious that arrested spies are punished with death sentence whether by hanging, killing by firing squads or cutting of head by sword. The country sending spies neither accepts her links with the spy nor protests over the punishment. Even the heirs of the spy alleged for treason do not protest over his death. Moreover, in the recent era, not a single example can be traced that a high ranked army officer have been arrested in the enemy country for terrorism. All the spies arrested in the history were arrested for accessing secret information.

Indian Top level Terrorist arrested in Pakistan
                In this regard, Indian Naval Officer Kulbhushan Yadav's arrest while he was in Pakistan on a terrorist mission is a strange event of the history. On the other hand not only India has accepted Kulbhushan as his citizen but declared as SON OF India. On his execution, India has threatened Pakistan for dire consequences. This is a strange happening in the history that a country is protecting her terrorist. There is no doubt that there is abundance of such elements in Pakistan who are against the execution of Kulbhushan. Not because they have sympathy for Kulbhushan but due to their interests and business ties with India, no matter if they have to hand over the whole Pakistan to India. These are those people who blame Pakistan army for tension with India. Due to their support, India is threatening Pakistan. Kulbhushan Yadav is not a spy but terrorist who was sent to Pakistan to wage terrorism war in Pakistan. Kulbhushan Yadav is the murderer of thousands of innocent Pakistanis killed in terrorist attacks. His planned terrorists killed children, elderly, men and women. Such cold blooded terrorists do not deserve to be pardoned under any package or deal. Ask from the heirs of those killed in the terrorist attacks, the train derails, firing over buses and bomb blasts; are they in favor of hanging of Yadav or not.
                As long as the international community or external forces are concerned, they will not interfere because they themselves have been hanging spies. How can they support a terrorist? Kulbhusan Yadav's hanging will give a clear message to India that those days have gone when Indian spies and terrorists were pardoned in the name of negotiations. By hanging of an Indian terrorist India would realize that the Pakistani nation is not ready to forgive its enemy and murderer of thousands of Pakistanis…

After Confession of Ehsan Ullah Ehsan..!

Ehsanullah Ehsan after surrendering to Pakistan Govt

                On the morning of 05 October 2013, 5 vehicles were speedily moving towards Kabul. These big wagons like vehicles were carrying mostly Afghan soldiers in uniform. On vehicle was carrying civilians. By looking at the caravan of these official vehicles it seemed that either Governor of Province Logar or some Afghan Army General. These vehicles were 35 kilometers away from Kabul on Central Highway in the Muhammad Agha District, they met with US Soldiers with two Army Personnel Carriers (APC) equipped with heavy machine guns facing towards the side from where the caravan was coming. It seemed as they were routinely checking the vehicles. An afghan soldier came out of the first vehicle from the caravan and introduced himself and told US Soldiers that they wanted to reach NDS Headquarters as soon as possible. US Soldiers ignored his conversation and surrounded the vehicle carrying the civilians. In the way US soldiers pointed their automatic weapons it was obvious that they did not want to hear anything and if anyone resisted they would not mind shooting him. US soldiers took the four civilians (excluding the driver) into the big jeep near the APCs and ordered Afghan soldiers to return from where they came. In the meanwhile, US soldiers left for Kabul along with the arrested civilians.

                The whole day passed away silently, neither Americans gave any report nor media; Afghan govt. was dead silent. John Kerry has reached Kabul. On the next day, the meeting between Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Kerry was scheduled in which the deals for extension in the stay of US soldiers till 2024 were to be finalized. This deal was badly needed by the both sides. In order to satisfy the international community, US had to get permission and willingness from puppet Afghan govt. so that Russia and China can be stopped from creating any problem for the USA in the UNO over the extension of  US soldiers stay in Afghanistan. Afghan govt. also realized that if US soldiers left they will be unprotected and there will be no one to save them from Afghan Taliban.
Latif Ullah Mehsud has served as a Senior Deputy to Pakistani Taliban leader Hakim Ullah Mehsud
                On the next day, Washington Post published the details of the arrests that were made 35 km away from Kabul. According to the newspaper, US soldiers snatched Senior Deputy of Tehreek Taliban Pakistan (TTP) along with hardcore supporter of Hakeem Ullah Mehsud, Ameer TTP from NDS officer and shifted him to US Army HQ at Kabul. According to the reports, Lateef Ullah Mehsood was coming to Kabul for negotiations on the invitation of NDS. This arrest was termed as a big shock for not only Hakeem Ullah Mehsud but for NDS as well along with Afghan govt. Because by arresting a guest of Afghan govt. in Afghanistan, Americans had proved that Afghan govt. has no writ even in its Capital. The shocking disclosures of Washington Post jolted the international media.
This file photo shows Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan (L) and TTP  member, Adnan Rasheed, addressing a press conference, in 2013.
                This was good news for Pakistan facing the terrorist war waged by TTP. Hamid Karzai expressed his anger by refusal to meet John Kerry and left the decision in the extension of US soldiers stay in Afghanistan to the upcoming govt. However, the problem for NDS was created when US Soldiers handed over Lateef Ullah Mehsood along with two others to Islamabad on 6 December 2014. This news reached Afghan govt. and NDS by US media in which it was said that an important Commander of TTP has been handed over to Pakistan after whose arrest in last year Hakeem UllahMehsudd was killed in a drone attack in tribal areas of North Waziristan.
                Pakistani intelligence agencies did not disclose the information they got from the investigation of Lateef Ullah Mehsood for a long time. In the mean while when govt. in India changed and Ajeet Kumar Doval was appointed as the Advisor of Modi; he addressed a seminar as  he took charge of his designation and openly confessed that India has adopted ‘Defensive Offence Doctrine’ against Pakistan. According to him under this doctrine enemy’s capability to attack is decreased by attacking it before its attack due to which enemy becomes incapable to attack. Ajeet Kumar claimed that under this strategy India has corrupted Pakistan’s economy and politics. He declared TTP as asset of India that TTP does not fight for Islam but for the money. That is why India is exploiting them against Pakistan while Pakistan does not have enough money to utilize them against India.
                On 29th January 2016, the video of the confessional statement of Lateef Ullah Mehsood was published publicly. This confessional statement supported all the claims made by Ajeet Kumar in his address to the seminar. Lateef Ullah Mehsood confessed that he does not know anything about Islam. He acknowledged the TTP links with India and Afghan Secret agencies.
                Whether it is the confessional video of Lateef Ullah Mehsood or Ajeet Kumar; one thing they share is that the terrorism in Pakistan for last 15 years that claimed 60 thousands lives of innocent Pakistanis including children, women and elderly. The numbers of Pakistani soldiers martyred are excluded. TTP has exploited the implementation of Islam in order to hide its terrorism while it was serving India. A specific group in Pakistan has been blaming Pakistan army’s policy over Afghanistan adopted in 1980. While Pakistan supported Afghan Mujahideen that are even now resisting the invasion of the foreign forces. Russia is openly supporting them. Engineer Gulbadeen Hikmat Yar has been given respect in Afghanistan. USA is ready to share power with Taliban in order to secure a safe respectful withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Ajeet Kumar Doval, India's Spymaster, and National Security Advisor
                Ehsan Ullah Ehsan, ex-spokes person of TTP who has surrendered. In his confession he has said that TTP is being exploited by India and Afghanistan against Pakistan. In such a situation what evidence we need to acknowledge India as an ENEMY? Living nations fulfill the enmity with enemies not friendship…
