ISI supports terrorism in Afghanistan: Muhajir Congress

ISI supports terrorism in Afghanistan: Muhajir Congress

Jun 14, 2017 - 09:13

WASHINGTON (Pajhwok): Alleging that ISIinfo-icon has been using Pakistani soil to plan terror attacks in Afghanistaninfo-icon, the newly formed Worldinfo-icon Muhajir Congress (WMC) in a letter to President Ashraf Ghani has extended its full support in his fight against terrorism.

“It is now a well-established fact that Pakistani soil is being used for terrorist attacks not only in Afghanistan but also in other countries,” the World Muhajir Congress said in a letter to Ghani.

“Reports from all major news organizations and think tanks suggest that Haqqani networkinfo-icon, factions of Talibaninfo-icon, ISIS and Al Qaeda are all operating from save havens in Pakistaninfo-icon under the protection of Pakistani Army and its notorious intelligence agency, ISI,” it alleged.

Representing the Muhajir cause at international level, the Congress in its letter dated June 11 strongly condemns the recent suicide attacks in Kabulinfo-icon which have killed and injured hundreds of innocent Afghan civilians.

“We can feel the pain of our Afghan brothers as thousands of Muhajirs have also lost their lives in the war against terrorism. We stand against ruthless terrorism being inflicted on our Afghan brothers and sisters in the name of religion by killers operating from Pakistani soil,” it said.

“It is evident that Pakistani military establishment and ISI do not see Afghanistan as a respectable neighboring country. Instead, they see it in the context of regional security and use their sponsored terrorist outfits as ‘proxies’ to increase their ‘strategic depth’ against India. World Muhajir Congress strongly condemns such policies,” the letter said.

Noting that the Afghan government has been bravely fighting the menace of Taliban for more than two decades, the letter said with the emergence of murderous outfit ISIS, the region is now faced with another serious security threat.

“The footprint of ISIS in recent times has extended from the Middle East and Afghanistan to the port city of Pakistan, Karachi, where secular and liberal Muhajirs are in majority who support liberal MQM political party,” it said.

The letter alleged that under the blatant and unashamed patronage of Pakistan Army and ISI, religious and sectarian terrorist outfits are making Karachi as their operational hub.

“This is an alarming trend and World Muhajir Congress will continue to highlight this serious issue at every appropriate international forum. Muhajir Nation and their sole political representative party have been the major obstacle in ISI’s plans to handover port city of Karachi to religious terrorist outfits and this is the reason for Army’s continued crackdown in Karachi against Muhajirs and their elected political party,” wrote the World Muhajir Congress.
