Pakistani Muslims do not need a foreign enemy!

Pakistani Muslims do not need a foreign enemy!
Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

Dear brothers and sisters, the article that I am posting below is a compilation of news and real facts relating to the following.

Timeline of events in FATA and Pakistan’s alliance with US-led coalition forces.
Role of Pakistan in the light of Quran and Sunnah.
Evaluation of projected image of Baitullah Mehsud.

This extreme hard work is done by a respected brother named Ibn e Pakistan in another forum. This will be good to use as a reference point of events leading up to the present situation in Pakistan.

I thought of posting it here if it is to benefit our forum members.May Allah reward that brother for his hard work.

Was salam.



In presence of Government Army, Pakistani Muslims do not need any enemy!
Ibn
-e-Pakistan


Introductory presentation – Pakistani Muslims do not need any enemy!


Armies of any country or of nation exist to serve two purposes, first and the foremost is to defend its civilian from threats and attacks of enemy and second is to safeguard the interests of its people. Unfortunately, Government armies of Muslim countries exist only to kill their own civilians as “Terrorists” and to protect and serve the interests of Kuffar.

I do not know how and from where to start as there are many facts buried deep down in propaganda of Western and Pakistani media which has led Pakistani patriots and nationalists to believe that “Operation Rah-e-Haq” and then “Operation Rah-e-Nijaat” are Pakistan’s war.



Today we see that our self-proclaimed paid experts are continuously explaining security situation, terrorism in Swat, praising role of military’s operations in tribal areas and putting all blame on foreign supported anti-Pakistan miscreants. Today, whole nation is celebrating the bloodshed and praising death of Pakistani tribal people and dignifying deaths of Pakistani soldiers without thinking beyond the propaganda.

To do justice and to achieve “near correct” opinion we should know the background of any conflict otherwise we can be led astray very easily by any one let alone paid experts to execute particular scripts.



In this article, I will try to summarize:



  • Timeline of events in FATA and Pakistan’s alliance with US-led coalition forces.
  • Role of Pakistan in the light of Quran and Sunnah.
  • Evaluation of projected image of Baitullah Mehsud.
  • Conclusion – yours to decide.
Note:
I tried best possible efforts to keep this article brief and to the point as much as possible but due to massive propaganda and twisted facts and lapse of time, it became difficult to control length and flow of words.




1. TIME LINE OF EVENTS IN FATA SINCE PAKISTAN’S ALLIANCE TO AMERICA



1979 – 1996 From Soviet invasion to Afghan civil war!



In 1979, USSR invades Afghanistan and sets up a puppet pro-Communism government.

Local people start Jihad against invading Soviet forces with little support from tribal people from neighboring border areas of Pakistan. A year later full fledged support from China, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and USA arrived and jihad continued until Soviet forces leave Afghanistan in February 1989.



Evacuation of Afghanistan by Soviets left different factions pursuing for power and ruling authority which resulted in a civil war. In 1994, Mullah Omar sets up Taliban movement of Islamic students who took arms, captured Kandahar and advanced towards Kabul.




By the year 1996, Taliban rises as sole ruling authority in Afghanistan in association with Osama bin Laden.



1998 – 2001 US attacks and UN embargos on Taliban Regime



In 1998, first attack on Taliban by US was launched in form of missiles at alleged Qaeda bases seeking revenge of bombings at US Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.


A year later in 1999, UN imposed air embargo and froze Taliban assets to force them to hand over Osama bin Laden for trial. This was first step towards weakening Taliban regime from inside and two years later, in 2001, US imposed another embargo stopping all supplies of arms to Taliban regime.



Until this time, Pakistan fully endorsed Taliban government and recognized the legitimacy besides Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.



2001 – 9/11 happens!



On September 11th, alleged terrorist attacks happen in New York on World Trade Center and US President George Bush demands immediate handover of Osama bin Laden or warns Taliban regime of dire consequences.



Bush administration continues with aggression and declares that “either the world is with America or is against America” – which meant no neutral stance will be accepted. Threats started to arrive in Islamabad and as admitted by Pervez Musharraf that he succumbed to US demands based on a threat of “bombing Pakistan back to stone ages”.



With agreement to join US as a non-NATO ally in Global War on Terror, he pledged for realigning domestic political institutions to serve U.S. interests; granting the U.S. access to Pakistan’s airfields; and providing all logistic support to US-led NATO and ISAF forces.



Taliban refuse to hand over Osama bin Laden without any evidence or proper trial.

Abdul Salam Zaeef, Taliban ambassador to Pakistan, said on September 21, 2001 that “Our position on this is that if America has proof, we are ready for the trial of Osama bin Laden in light of the evidence.”

Source: Taliban Won't Turn Over Bin Laden - CBS News



And repeated statement was also reported with reference to Abdul Salam Zaeef, in another newspaper:



“We must be given the evidence. If America is not satisfied with our trial of Osama, we are also ready to find another Islamic way of trying him.”

Source: Taliban 'will try Bin Laden if US provides evidence' | World news | guardian.co.uk



In response, George Bush refused Taliban’s offer as “unacceptable, non-negotiable” and warned of consequences if they do not handover Osama bin Laden.




On September 22, 2001, Northern Alliance launches attacks on Taliban and Taliban call for Jihad if US enters Afghanistan. By the month of October 2001, US and British forces start intensive bombing of Taliban’s air defense installations and command centers with support of Government of Pakistan despite of unhappiness of entire Pakistani nation.



2002 – 2004 The betrayal and reprise…



In January Pakistani government hand over Abdul Salam Zaeef, Taliban ambassador, to US authorities. USA denies giving Taliban captives status of “Prisoners of War” thus stripping off all the rights that are available to wartime captives under International laws and Geneva Conventions.



Pakistani government and intelligence agencies start major crack down against Madaris (religious schools); a number of Pakistani Islamic groups were outlawed; many Al Qaeda and Taliban members and their sympathizers / fund raisers were handed over to US in return for bounty monies fixed by Bush Administration. Pakistani institutions further impound all of the assets belonging to people classified as “terrorists” by Bush Administration.



President Bush links U.S. and Pakistan goals in war against terror. He declares: “Both the United States and Pakistan are threatened by global terror, and we’re determined to defeat it. Since [the] September 11th [2001] attacks, Pakistan has apprehended more than five-hundred al-Qaida and Taliban terrorists.



Pervez Musharraf says, “Pakistan will not become haven for al-Qaida or other terrorist groups” and “We abhor terrorism in all its forms and manifestations. There is no cause that can be justified or promoted through terrorist acts. And Pakistan is moving against terrorism in its own national interest.



In July 2002, Pakistani troops entered the Tirah Valley in the Khyber Agency for the first time since Pakistan independence in 1947. They proceeded to move into the Shawal Valley of North Waziristan, and later South Waziristan. The move was reluctantly allowed by tribes after long negotiations on assurance that it would bring development work and funds.



International Media for the first time starts propaganda that “Taliban members who’ve fled Afghanistan and Al Qaeda operatives are reportedly “re-Talibanizing” in Pakistan”, “Al Qaeda has improved its abilities to plan global attacks and build new training compounds in Pakistan’s tribal areas, which have become virtual havens for the terrorist network.” – Pakistan denied these reports.



Pakistani military starts hunt for Qaeda and Taliban commanders in March 2004 and after retaliation from Waziri tribes suffered heavy losses and casualties, finally resorted to cease-fire agreement in April 2004.




In June 2004, Nek Mohammad (Commander of Taliban in Pakistan and predecessor of Baitullah Mehsud) gets slain in US drone attack.



2005 – 2006 Betrayal continues!



The Taliban begins to regroup in larger numbers and continue to attack US troops in Afghanistan, making it the deadliest year for US troops since the war began in 2001. White House becomes increasingly irritated with Pakistani tribal areas for fueling Taliban and Al Qaeda. Propaganda against Tribal areas of Pakistan catches more fire.



A top U.N. envoy in Afghanistan said the Taliban insurgency there was being aided by money and fighters coming across the border from Pakistan. The Commander of the U.S. Central Command, Gen. Abizaid, held meetings with top Pakistani leaders in Islamabad.



Cease-fire agreement between Islamabad and Islamic militants in North Waziristan was extended for another month and then again for further two weeks. Recall that first ever operation launched by Pakistani army is not “Rah-e-Haq” or “Rah-e-Raast” – in fact, first operation was launched in hunt of Al Qaeda and Taliban commanders in March 2004 and later due to humiliating defeat, Pakistani army resorted to cease-fire agreement after one month in April 2004.



Negotiations between government and tribal leaders in North Waziristan reportedly reached an impasse over the demands for “compensation” for damages caused by military operations in the region.



In the month of September 2006, Pakistani government and militants in North Waziristan signed a truce to ensure “permanent peace” in the region. Under the deal, the Taliban of Pakistan vowed to distance themselves from foreign militants and to end the cross-border movement of militants into Afghanistan, while government forces agreed to refrain from further military operations in the area and to withdraw from numerous check posts. However, a senior Pakistani official said the truce would not prevent the army from “taking surgical action” against any renewed militant activities.



President Bush said he would order U.S. forces to enter Pakistan if he received good intelligence on Osama bin Laden’s location.



2007 – 2008 “Operation Silence” and other key events



Major efforts done by Pakistani army and other developments include:



  • Security forces arrested 16 suspected Taliban from Pishin Bazaar in Baluchistan.

  • Pakistan army attacked and destroyed supply trucks in North Waziristan used by militants for cross-border attacks in Afghanistan.

  • Pakistan Army helicopter gunships attacked a suspected militant hideout in South Waziristan early on January 16-morning. Helicopter gun-ships targeted a cluster of compounds at Salamt village in the Zamzola area, 30km to the east of Razmak in South Waziristan killing most of the people inside and it used to be an Arab-dominated hideout.

  • In July 2007, Commandos of Pakistani army carried out operation silence in Lal Masjid killing unknown number of people including Maulana Ghazi (shaheed).

  • Al Qaeda’s second-in command Ayman al Zawahri, in an internet video posted, called for revenge over a government assault that killed more than 70 militants inside the Islamabad-based Lal Masjid. “This crime can only be washed by repentance or blood,” Zawahri said in the video posted on web sites used by Islamists. “If you do not retaliate … (President General Pervez) Musharraf will not spare any of you,” he said, addressing Pakistani Muslims and their clerical leaders.

  • At least 15 militants were killed during military operations that targeted militant hideouts near the Mir Ali town in North Waziristan including unconfirmed reports that an Iraqi national Abu Akasha, a suspected al Qaeda operative, may have been the target of the military operation.

  • Another attack by Army gunship helicopters in Shawal area of North Waziristan kills 40 alleged militants.

  • The increasing number of suicide attacks in Afghanistan is often carried out by young Afghan men who pass through religious schools in Pakistan, a United Nations report said.

  • USA’s intelligence agency National Intelligence stated that al Qaeda continues to recruit Europeans for explosives training in Pakistan because Europeans can more easily enter the United States without a visa.

  • Director of National Intelligence, Mike McConnell, said that European al Qaeda recruits in the border region of Pakistan are being trained to use commercially available substances to make explosives, and they may be able to carry out an attack on U.S. territory.

  • The US military said that it expected al Qaeda to continue its “re-emergence in sanctuaries in Pakistan’s tribal areas from where it supported attacks in Afghanistan”. “Sanctuary was provided to al Qaeda and Taliban militants after Islamabad signed a peace deal with them in a desperate attempt to quell the unrest in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas in September 2006”, a US military official claimed.

  • In October 2007, Taliban commander Baitullah Mehsud executed three soldiers from a group of more than 250 taken hostage in September 2007 in South Waziristan and vowed to carry out more executions if the government continued the “Mehsud tribes’ humiliation”. The bodies of the three soldiers were found on the Wana-Jandola road in Jandola near the border with South Waziristan.

  • Year 2007 witness first ever military conflict in Swat valley and a cease-fire was reached in February 2009.
In a statement, US Assistant Secretary of State Richard Boucher said in Islamabad on January 12 that “Pakistan has not succeeded despite signing an agreement with tribal people in North Waziristan as terrorists are still going into Afghanistan.”



“At least 700 Taliban activists have crossed from Pakistan into Afghanistan to reinforce militants attacking a key dam, a major source of electricity and irrigation”, a provincial governor in Afghanistan said, “We have got confirmed reports that they are Pakistani, Uzbek and Chechen nationals and have sneaked in,” Helmand Governor Asadullah Wafa told Reuters.



Pakistan refuted a claim that there was al Qaeda’s base command in the tribal areas and declared that the government was determined to take action against ‘remnants’ of the group who may be hiding in the country.



“Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden is alive and sheltering in the lawless parts of Pakistan on the border with Afghanistan”,US National Intelligence Director Mike McConnell said. In response, Pakistan’s Interior Minister Aftab Ahmed Sherpao told AFP “Our stance is that Osama bin Laden is not present in Pakistan… If anyone has the information he should give it to us, so that we can apprehend him.”



Frances Townsend, Homeland Security Adviser to President George W. Bush, said that the US would consider using military force to neutralize alleged al Qaeda hideouts in Pakistan.



The pro-Taliban groups warned Pakistani soldiers to quit fighting or face the “gift of death” through new suicide attacks. In pamphlets, distributed in Miranshah town, entitled “Till Islam Lives in Islamabad” a group calling itself the Mujahideen-i-Islam threatened that suicide bombs would again bring soldiers the “gift of death”. They warned that suicide attackers “love death more than you love your 5,000-rupee salary, nude pictures of Indian actresses and liquor.” It added “We know that you have become America’s slave and are serving infidel Musharraf and have become a traitor to your religion for food, clothes and shelter.”



Pakistan said it would not allow any attack by the United States on the FATA in a hunt for al Qaeda, saying the counter-terrorism measures would be taken by its own security forces.



Taliban fighters attack a US military base, Camp Salerno, in Bamiyan. In another daring attack, 10 French paratroopers are killed and more than 20 are wounded in an ambush by about 100 fighters about 30 miles east of Kabul.



In August 2007, US-led security forces and Afghan troops attacked Taliban positions inside Pakistan in fresh clashes that left at least 19 militants dead, security forces said. The US-led coalition said it received permission from Pakistan to attack across the border on August 25, but this was denied by the chief military spokesperson in Islamabad.



In October 2007 – The White House released a national strategy for combating terrorism, terming Pakistan as an al Qaeda safe haven, which can be used for launching another 9/11 like attack inside the United States. This is the first time that the country has been named as an al Qaeda safe haven in a White House policy document. Al Qaeda has “protected its top leadership, replenished operational lieutenants, and regenerated a safe haven in Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas — core capabilities that would help facilitate another attack on the Homeland,” the document said.



October 2007 – The PAF warplanes continued attacking localities of Mir Ali subdivision in North Waziristan targeting Haiderkhel, Ipi, Hasukhel, Musaki, Mullagan, Hurmaz, Zeeraki, Khushali and other villages of the area.



November 2007 – Pro-Taliban commander Baitullah Mehsud released over 200 soldiers who had been taken hostage in South Waziristan on August 30, 2007. Military spokesman Major General Waheed Arshad said, “The 211 soldiers the militants have released reached Wana” He also confirmed that the government had released 25 militants including a relative of slain Taliban commander Abdullah Mehsud, Sohail Zeb, in exchange for the soldiers’ release. Officials said the soldiers and militants had been exchanged through jirga (tribal council) members at Tiarza tehsil (revenue division), 25 kilometres northeast of Wana.



January 2008 – The Pentagon is extremely concerned about al Qaeda operations in Pakistan, said US military chief Admiral Michael Mullen. “We know it is having a significant impact, not just in Afghanistan, but certainly there are concerns about how much they have turned inward inside Pakistan. I am extremely concerned about this” – he told a press conference.



January 2008 – Even as Pakistani troops continued targeting militants’ positions in South Waziristan, Baitullah Mehsud, chief of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, warned of serious repercussions if the military operations were not stopped. His spokesman Maulana Umar said: “The government wants to enter the Mehsud area by force. But it must take into account the consequences of such a harsh action”. He accused the security forces of ‘killing innocent people’ and ‘damaging their homes’ and warned that the government would have to “pay a heavy price”.



January 2008 – Taliban Commander Baitullah Mehsud said in an interview with Al Jazeera’s Admad Zaidan Al Jazeera bureau chief in Islamabad at an undisclosed location that “Pervez Musharraf is working for the interests of the nonbelievers and we will fight back to teach him a lesson“. Mehsud said the Taliban coalition was carrying out a “defensive jihad”. “The army is bombarding our houses and fighting with us,” he said, adding “We have formed this coalition to guarantee the safety of civilians.



January 2008 – Senior al Qaeda commander Abu Laith Al-Libi killed in Pakistan and according to the US official, “not far below the importance of the top two al Qaeda leaders – Osama bin Laden and Ayman Al-Zawahiri”.



February 2008 – The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan said that they were ready for peace talks with the new Government, but only if it rejected President Pervez Musharraf’s “war on terror” in the country’s tribal belt. A TTP spokesman quoted Baitullah Mehsud as calling for negotiations with parties that beat the president’s allies in elections. “The Taliban movement welcomes the victory of anti-Musharraf political parties… and announces its willingness to enter into negotiations with them for bringing peace,” Taliban spokesman Maulana Omar said, quoting a statement by Mehsud. He urged the new administration to “avoid repeating the mistakes of the Musharraf government.




March 2008 – The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan said that it was ready for talks with the Government, provided that Islamabad reverses its pro-American policies.



April 2008 – Ahmad Shah alias Mullah Ismail, a Taliban commander blamed for the deadliest attack on US troops since they entered Afghanistan in 2001, was killed in a shootout with security forces in Pakistan, US and Pakistani officials said. Police killed Ahmad Shah at a roadblock near Peshawar, an unnamed senior Pakistani intelligence official said.



April 2008 – There is “strong evidence” that al Qaeda operatives are present in the Tribal Areas along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, said British Foreign Secretary David Miliband.



April 2008 – Ayman al-Zawahiri, widely considered to be number two in the al Qaeda, criticised Muslims for failing to support Islamist insurgencies in Iraq and elsewhere in a new audiotape posted on the Internet. In several parts of the audio message, al-Zawahiri claimed that Taliban took over 95 per cent of Afghanistan and was sweeping Pakistan as well. “The Crusaders and their agents in Pakistan and Afghanistan are starting to fall,” al-Zawahiri said.



April 2008 – The leader of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), Baitullah Mehsud, ordered his militants to “immediately cease their activities” in the FATA and NWFP. “Baitullah Mehsud has issued directives to all his comrades that in order to restore peace in the region, they should cease their activities forthwith both in the tribal region as well as the settled districts of the NWFP” said a pamphlet released on April 23. “He has warned that his directives should be complied with and those violating them will be publicly punished”, it said.

Accusing Pakistan of sheltering most of the fighters involved in recent incidents in the Garmser District of Helmand Province, he told a News Conference that Afghanistan had the right to self-defence, and because militants cross over from Pakistan “to come and kill Afghans and kill coalition troops, it exactly gives us the right to do the same”.



July 2008 US Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff has said al Qaeda is regrouping in the border areas of Pakistan.



July 2008 The Afghan Foreign Minister Rangin Dadfar Spanta told the UN Security Council that a key factor behind the worsening security in his country was “the de facto truce” in neighbouring Pakistan’s tribal areas. “One of the main factors contributing to the deterioration of the security situation in the country is the de facto truce in the tribal areas beyond the border”.



July 2008 The NATO-led troops in Afghanistan used attack helicopters and artillery to fire into Pakistan after coming under rocket attacks from the Pakistani side of the border, the alliance force said.

Talking to the media from an undisclosed location, TTP spokesman Maulvi Umer said Malik’s statement alleging that the Taliban had links with India and were getting financial assistance from the country was deplorable and silly and was not based on facts.



August 2008 Islamic extremists who trained at terrorist camps in Afghanistan and Pakistan may be plotting attacks in Germany”, the head of the German federal crime office said. Joerg Ziercke, head of the Bundeskriminalamt — Germany’s FBI equivalent — told the daily Tagesspiegel that some 50 aspiring militants from Germany had been trained in camps run by al Qaeda, the Taliban or the Islamic Jihad Union. “In light of statements from al Qaeda and (the Islamic Jihad Union), we are certain that a decision has been made to conduct attacks in Germany”, Ziercke was quoted as saying in the interview.



August 2008 TTP chief Baitullah Mehsud contacted the TTP Shura (executive council) members after Musharraf’s resignation and all of them assured to stop militant activities and hold peace talks with the Government provided “the government guaranteed that it would stop pro-US policies adopted by the former military dictator.

September 2008 Pakistan stopped supplies to the United States and NATO forces in Afghanistan through its western Torkham border, citing security concerns. The coalition forces also get supplies through the Chaman border in Balochistan, but the bulk of the supplies goes through Torkham – a shorter route for Kabul where the US and NATO forces are based.



September 2008 Pakistan reopened supply lines to North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) forces in Afghanistan, after the road through the Khyber Pass was blocked, days after a raid by the US commandos on a Pakistani village.

October 2008 The British officials covered up evidence that a Taliban commander killed by Special Forces in Helmand in Afghanistan last year was in fact a Pakistani military officer. Citing unidentified Afghan officials, reporter Christina Lamb said British soldiers discovered a Pakistani military ID on his body.



October 2008 The US Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs, Richard Boucher said that Pakistan must not begin talks with the Taliban as negotiations had failed in the past and praised the government for the its military operations in the tribal areas. Boucher met President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gillani, and also the NWFP’s political leadership.



October 2008 Suspected US drones fired missiles into a madrassa set up by veteran pro-Taliban commander, Jalaluddin Haqqani, killing eight people and wounding six others, near Miranshah in the North Waziristan Agency of FATA. Frontier Corps Inspector General, Major General Tariq Khan has alleged that Taliban militants are infiltrating from Afghanistan into Pakistan to help those battling security forces in Bajaur Agency.



November 2008 Political authorities suspended supplies to NATO forces in Afghanistan via Torkham Border due to security concerns on the Pak-Afghan Highway, a private TV channel reported. The channel reported that hundreds of trucks and containers had been stopped in Peshawar after the suspension of the supply. Khyber Agency Political Agent Tariq Hayat told the channel that supplies had been suspended following incidents of looting of trucks and containers carrying oil and other supplies for the NATO forces battling Taliban in Afghanistan.



November 2008 Foreigners, including Uzbeks, Chechens, Afghans and Saudis, are involved in cross-border activities, which justify air strikes by international forces on Pakistani territory, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said.



December 2008 – At least 171 vehicles of the US-led NATO forces, including 62 armored personnel carriers, were torched by armed attackers in two parking bays on the Ring Road in the vicinity of Pishtakhara in Peshawar. Around 130 vehicles were completely destroyed in the attack, while 40 others were partially damaged. The attack is the biggest ever on NATO logistics in Pakistan, during which a watchman was killed while two others were injured when they offered resistance to over 300 attackers, who were armed with rocket launchers, hand grenades, petrol bombs and AK-47 rifles.



December 2008 – Taliban again torched at least 53 vehicles destined for NATO forces in Afghanistan in an attack on the outskirts of Peshawar, the second such raid in two days. Armed gunmen shouting ‘God is great’ attacked Bilal Container Terminal near Jamil Chowk on the Ring Road at around 3am, said Zahid Ali, a local resident.



December 2008 – 12 more containers were set ablaze in a parking lot on the Ring Road in Peshawar, capital of NWFP.

December 2008 – The US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, has said that the existence of alleged safe havens in FATA has allowed the resurgence of the Taliban in the region. “Part of the problem there is that nobody has been able to deal with the sanctuary across the border in that ungoverned part of Pakistan”, said Rice. She also said Pakistan must “better handle on what’s going on in the Northwest Frontier, because that is the place from which the Taliban is resurgent”.



December 2008 – Afghanistan and Pakistan decide to form joint strategy to combat Taliban fighters in their border regions.



2009 – Service to US interests continues…

A major phase wise operation was planned and started by Pakistan in April 2009 which was called “Operation Black Thunder Storm”.



Operation Rah-e-Rast is sub-part (or third phase of this major operation) and in May 2009 military campaign resumed in Swat as second major offensive against alleged anti-Pakistani terrorists.



In June 2009 Operation Rah-e-Nijat started where Pakistani military has begun a massive troop build-up encircling Waziristan agency for which there are many reports that US is pressurizing Pakistan to carryout operation in Wazir agency.





2. ROLE OF PAKISTAN IN THE LIGHT OF QURAN AND SUNNAH



Pakistan’s abandonment of Afghan Muslims was justified as “Sab se pehle Pakistan” – a slogan that stems from “national spirit and patriotism” and submission to US aggression which included following all commands of American



There are clear rulings of Islam that prohibit Muslims from helping Kuffar in times of war. Scholars of Islam have stated that it is not permitted to support the kafirs against the Muslims, and that that is kufr (disbelief) and riddah (apostasy), because Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):



“O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as Awliyaa’ (friends, protectors, helpers), they are but Awliyaa’ of each other. And if any amongst you takes them (as Awliyaa’), then surely, he is one of them” [al-Maa'idah 5:51]



The fuqaha’ of Islam, the imams of the Hanafi, Maaliki, Shaafa’i and Hanbali mazahib, and other fuqaha’, have stated in their books that it is Haram to sell them anything that may help them against the Muslims, such as weapons, equipment, riding vehicles, etc. So it is not permissible to give them food or to sell them food, drink, water, tents, trucks, vehicles, or to make contracts with them to provide maintenance, transaportation, etc. All of that is haram.



It is not permissible to give them anything that may give them the slightest help against the Muslims. Al-Nawawi said in al-Majmoo’:



With regard to selling weapons to ahl al-harb (those who wage war against the Muslims), it is haram according to scholarly consensus.



In al-Mawsoo’ah al-Fiqhiyyah (25/153) it says:



It is haram to sell weapons to ahl al-harb (those who are waging war against Islam) or to those who are known as bandits who attack Muslims or who stir up fitnah among them. Al-Hasan al-Basri said: It is not permissible for a Muslim to take weapons or horses to the enemies of the Muslims which will strengthen them against the Muslims or anything that will help them to acquire weapons and horses, because selling weapons to ahl al-harb strengthens them to fight the Muslims and motivates them to declare war and continue fighting.




This issue is not the matter of ordinary or minor sins, rather it is a matter that has to do with the basis of ‘aqeedah (belief) and Tawheed (belief in the Oneness of Allah), and the Muslim’s support and loyalty towards the Religion of Allah and his disavowal of the enemies of Allah. This is what was stated by the imams in their books.


Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz (may Allah have mercy on him) said in his Fataawa (1/274):

The scholars of Islam are unanimously agreed that whoever supports the Kafirs against the Muslims and helps them in any way is a Kafir.



Once the status of the acts or policies chosen by Pakistan are established then second important aspect is that Pakistan and Pakistani Army are under government and control of Munafiqun who are clearly ruling against what Allah has commanded.



One point of consensus among Ulema is that it is obligatory on Muslims to remove rulers upon whom “Kufr” has been established either through a peaceful process or by use of force. Ulema have difference of opinion on the conditions that establish “Kufr”.



All in all, whether or not armed rebellion is recommended or not, it is clear that role chosen by Pakistani government despite of entire Pakistani nation and mercenary role played by military of Pakistan is against the teachings of Quran and Sunnah.



Another point worth noting is that we cannot say that only culprits are Generals while soldiers are innocent because the discipline in army is highly demanding, there is no dissent, no strife within, no coup de-tats for power from within the structure. So everyone in the army is highly supportive of the status quo and would do nothing within his power to bring a change there in.



For example, how Islamic minded people were massacred in Lal Masjid? It was not Generals who stormed the Masjid, but the foot soldiers and commandos of military. Those who claim that these soldiers are staunch Muslims then why did soldiers followed wrong orders of Generals?



As said in Quran:


“If any do fail to judge by the light of what Allah has revealed, they are no better than the kafirs” [al-Maa'idah 5:44]



Similarly, in Quran at numerous points it is clearly mentioned that:



“Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allâh,and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Tâghût (Satan, etc.). So fight you against the friends of Shaitân (Satan); Ever feeble indeed is the plot of Shaitân (Satan)” [an-Nisa 4:76]



“O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.” [al-Maa'idah 5:51]



“You will see many of them befriending those who disbelieve; certainly evil is that which their souls have sent before for them, that Allah became displeased with them and in chastisement shall they abide.” [al-Maa'idah 5:80]



“Let not the believers take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah” [aal-e-Imran 3:28]



Now a person might have perverted ideologies about national security and delusions of the same sort, which he/she might use to justify the actions of the army of Pakistan including stance taken by Pakistan as a state but it is all a sham (fraud) and if he/she is not biased or bigoted than the truth is clearly visible.



Lastly, let us see how much sincere Pakistani government was with tribal people:



Bad intentions of Pakistan’s corrupt Government and Mercenary Generals



Before going any further, note a point that Sufi Mohammad was once arrested during early 90s and then in late 90s for his Tehreek Niffaz-e-Shariat Mohammadi (TSNM) and finally arrested for the third time by Musharraf regime in 2000 to remain in captivity for eight years.



In an interview to a foreign media reporter, Mr. Hussain Haqqani said,



“President Zardari did something very smart. When he was with President Obama recently, he explained it. He actually told the American government that I’m going to do this deal to try and prove to those within Pakistan, and in Pakistan’s state apparatus, who think that these guys can be negotiated with — I will negotiate with them only to prove that you can’t negotiate with them, because they will break the deal. And as soon as they broke the deal, the army is back in, the fighting is going on, and you can see the results.”

Sifting Through ‘Debris of the Past’ to Make Sense of Pakistan’s Taliban Problem - The Lede Blog - NYTimes.com




It clearly shows the insincerity of Pakistani Government and who knows the ones who ran over Buner on the next day of peace deal were indeed Baitullah Mehsud’s people or some government hired people to create chaos to justify beginning of a military operation in Swat?



This should be enough on role of Pakistan as a mercenary state, a character that is worse than that of Israel towards Palestinians.





3. EVALUATION OF PROJECTED IMAGE OF COMMANDER BAITULLAH MEHSUD



Claim no. 1 – Baitullah is a CIA agent logistically supported by RAW of India.



So-called security experts and defense analysts on Pakistani media do not get tired when they are asked to dry their throats by speaking on “Who is Baitullah Mehsud?”



A majority of average Pakistanis have been fed and indoctrinated through a successful media campaign that Baitullah Mehsud is an Indian supported anti-Pakistan barbarian who slits throat of innocent Pakistani soldiers to terrorize entire nation.



If we refer back to the timeline above without any bias, we can see that it is the Pakistani military that charged over tribal areas under American support in 2002, a full fleshed operation was started in March 2004 (which resulted in a humiliating defeat) and then strife continued off and on, Baitullah’s lashkar captured and released Pak Soldiers and FC footmen under various peace deals without harming them and he has also been sending warning that either the operation and humiliation of tribal people should stop under US pressure or he will start killing soldiers and FC footmen who follow un-Islamic orders of Pakistani Generals.



These security experts and defense analysts use justification of “no drone attacks on Baitullah network” to prove that he is a foreign supported terrorist. They claim that while USA has been targeting pro-Afghan Taliban tribesmen using unmanned drones but USA never deliberately targeted Baitullah Mehsud or his network.



Now let us see that how much full of lies the claims of these experts are.



In a report published by Long War Journal, summarizing history of US drone attacks in Pakistan, it is mentioned that as of July 2009, 50% of total drone attacks were made in Baitullah Mehsud’s area of South Waziristan and about 38% of total drone attacks were made in North Waziristan thus out of total, 88% of drone attacks were made against Waziristan agency which is the home town of Baitullah Mehsud and before his death under a drone attack, former Commander of Taliban Pakistan, Nek Mohammad was also killed in a drone attack in June 2004 later his brother Abdullah Mehsud – an ex-Guantanamo Bay detainee, was killed in battle with Pakistani forces somewhere in Baluchistan.

From above, we can clearly see that USA was desperate to kill Baitullah Mehsud and Mullah Nazir for their support to Afghan Taliban and later they were dragged into a fighting front with Pakistani forces for attacking tribal areas to support US-led coalition forces in Afghanistan. Unfortunately, none of these figures was ever discussed in our media by so-called paid experts who did a great job in serving interests of Kuffar in getting these Taliban Commanders declared as “Anti-Pakistan Terrorists”.



Claim no. 2 – USA never wanted to kill Baitullah Mehsud and his death by US drone was an unintentional mishap on part of USA.



This is another blatant lie by our self-proclaimed experts. Another report from Long War Journal mentions:



“An overwhelming number of strikes – nearly 90 percent – have taken place against al Qaeda and Taliban targets in North and South Waziristan.”



And



“In 14 strikes, the US reportedly attempted to target a specific Taliban or al Qaeda leader (or leaders), but failed to kill the intended target. These strikes have included two failed attempts to kill Ayman al-Zawahiri – who is thought to be hiding somewhere in the Taliban-controlled areas of the tribal agencies – as well as TWO ATTEMPTS TO TAKE OUT BAITULLAH MEHSUD, the leader of the Movement of the Taliban in Pakistan, who is based in South Waziristan. It was not possible to determine if High Value Targets were targeted in the remaining 45 strikes.”



And



“Some of the most important al Qaeda and Taliban leaders killed by US airstrikes include: Abu Jihad al Masri, the chief of al Qaeda’s intelligence council; Abu Sulayman Jazairi, the chief of al Qaeda’s external operations branch; Khalid Habib, the commander of al Qaeda’s paramilitary Shadow Army; Osama al Kini, the head of al Qaeda’s operations in Pakistan; Abu Laith al Libi, the commander of Brigade 055; Abu Khabab al Masri, the chief of al Qaeda’s WMD program; Abu Hamza Rabai, al Qaeda’s operations chief in Pakistan; and Nek Mohammed, the leader of the Taliban in South Waziristan.”



You should re-read above paragraph where it says that “at least two attempts were made to take out Commander Baitullah Mehsud“.



Source: US Predator strikes in Pakistan: Observations - The Long War Journal




It is known that Commander Baitullah Mehsud emerged and sole commanding authority of Waziristan thus he was indeed al Qaeda and Taliban fighter not an US agent. This is the most furious lie from Pakistani experts.



And further to prove that many false claims by these highly paid experts, let us see other key commanders of Baitullah killed by US air strikes inside Pakistan:



Nek Mohammed, killed on June 18, 2004A senior Taliban commander in South Waziristan who had links to Osama bin Laden and Mullah Omar.



Liaquat Hussain, killed on October 30, 2006 – second-in-command of Bajaur Tehreek Niffaz-e-Shariat Mohammadi.



Kifayatullah Anikhel, killed on July 7, 2009 – a Taliban commander under Baitullah Mehsud.




Khwaz Ali Mehsud, killed on June 23, 2009 – a senior deputy to Baitullah Mehsud.
Now I do not see what other than dollars made our experts ignore these facts. In another summary of US drone attacks maintained at Wikipedia – not less than fifty (50) attacks were made by US in Waziristan.



See: Drone attacks in Pakistan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



Claim no. 3 – Baitullah Mehsud is a terrorist not a Mujahid.



Let us see other sources too so that you realize that Baitullah Mehsud was a Mujahid and not a terrorist – although his fellows may be committed some mistakes due to lack of Islamic knowledge but that’s a separate matter and the primary responsibility of such mistakes should fall on shoulders of Ulema who have resorted to poisonous silence.

In a report by World Socialist Web on Pakistan it is mentioned,



“Bowing to the pressure from the Obama administration, the Islamabad government led by the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and the military launched a brutal offensive on April 26 in the Swat Valley and adjoining districts in the North Western Frontier Province (NWFP).”



Further it says,



“Meeting with Pakistan’s Army Chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani on Tuesday, Holbrooke again praised the military for the Swat offensive, while demanding that it press ahead.



At another point the report says,



“The US war in Afghanistan and in the Pakistan border area is destabilizing the whole country and will have far reaching implications for the entire South Asian region. This is underscored by the increasing mass opposition to the US presence as well as to the PPP-led government in Islamabad.”



Source: US presses Pakistan for offensive in South Waziristan




Another report published in Los Angeles Times said,



“For years, Al Qaeda and the Pakistani Taliban have nurtured a symbiotic relationship that has paid off for both militant groups. The Taliban provided Al Qaeda and its leaders sanctuary within the rugged wasteland of Pakistan’s tribal areas along the Afghan border. In turn, Al Qaeda trained and helped finance its host.”



It should solve the lie and myth of India financial hardcore Islamists.



“Now, with the purported death of Taliban leader Baitullah Mahsud and his organization temporarily rudderless, Al Qaeda finds itself made vulnerable by the disarray plaguing its patron, experts and Pakistani intelligence sources say. It’s a window of opportunity that neither Pakistan nor the United States can afford to neglect.”



Source: World News Item




This should clarify on whose instructions this operation was started and later on how media was used to cover it up so that people of Pakistan do not stand up against Army for killing civilians of Pakistan.



Culprit defense and security analysts using banner of Islam succeeded to fool hundreds of thousands of Pakistanis. If Baitullah Mehsud was really an agent then I must say he was the biggest fool we would ever know because the terms on which he became agent were highly unfavorable for him and for his tribesmen that on one side Pak Army is killing his tribesmen and on the other US drones are hitting him hard that up to 88% of total are attacking his home towns and despite of Baitullah’s allegedly agent role, all the dollars kept flowing to PPP government and Mercenary Army.



Pakistan’s paid military assets appearing as experts are leading entire nation astray



Unfortunately, Pakistani people have long been waiting for a leader who would come and rescue them from all miseries. If you notice that in our media any person, who speaks against India, Israel and American becomes an instant hero.



Talking with reference to Pakistan’s self proclaimed defense and security analysts [I wonder who gives them this designation], there is a complete blue print these people follow, first they say what people want to listen on issues like corruption, problems of Pakistan, typical anti-Israel and anti-India slogans, then few programs on Islam – that’s all to become hero of Pakistani nation. When these people are certain that their propaganda has created fans and enough number of people subscribing to their ideas and beliefs then they start to IMPLANT information as and when required by their paying masters.



4. CONCLUSION – you to decide



Propaganda in media is at the height of its peak and experts’ reports on Pakistani channels contradict many facts that should be enough to expose their filthy objectives.



Unfortunately, facts are buried deep down due to overwhelming propaganda. None of the facts included in this write-up could make their place in mainstream media for reasons which are clearly visible including a fact that this entire media is controlled by the powers of Taghoot.



One might think why British Foreign Secretary had to say, “Pakistan’s fight against terror on right trajectory” [Source: Pakistan’s fight against terror on right trajectory: Miliband - GEO.tv]



And, US State Department has praised that the Pakistan Army has had “a very serious and concerted effort to dismantle extremist elements” [Source: .:: SAMAA - Pakistan Army making serious effort: US]




Why American and British officials are praising military operation in tribal areas? Why they are happy for on going efforts by army against so-called extremists and terrorists?



It should now be clear that all of this propaganda in Pakistan is being carried out to gather support for military operations based on American wishes and commands to avoid American wrath – no matter even if these operation result in merciless coldblooded massacre of orthodox Islamic tribal people of Pakistan who have a proud history of not bowing down to invading super powers.



Our problem as nation is we have been entangled in chasing basic necessities of life and due to this, we have lost willingness to read alternative news sources to at least verify that whatever our media and self-proclaimed experts are spreading is truth or bunch of fabricated lies which can be easily caught if we think beyond the propaganda.




Last words…



This is all I have to say, I am a homeland loving Pakistani but Islam comes first and from historical facts of decade, I can see that whose interests Pakistan Army and ISI have been serving and against whom Pakistani Generals have been helping the Kuffar — my patriotism has not blinded me.



Pakistan is not fighting a war that belongs to her and as long as Pakistan does not officially corrects her Afghan policy – I do not believe that ISI is silently working behind the doors to support Jihad against USA in Afghanistan behind the doors.



There cannot be peace in Pakistan as USA will always try to drag Pakistan into war because Taliban in Afghanistan are badly beating US soldiers and besides this, we have to pay Kuffara of deaths of thousands of innocent Afghan Muslims who were bombed to martyrdom by Pakistan’s support under a slogan of “Pakistan First” and our army provided all logistic support including Chowkidari of NATO supply routes and attacking tribesmen who would attack NATO supply vehicles.



If we look at past, it would be clear that Generals in Pak Army are blood thirsty lunatics who pursue power and ruling authority, first they massacred Bengalis in East Pakistan (research on aristocracies on your own), resultantly we lost East Pakistan, then Army charged on Urdu speaking people in Karachi and thousands were murdered, then they charged over Lal Masjid (in this case some may say that Maulana Ghazi made a mistake but in any case that mistake was not big enough to commit a massacre in darkness of night and bury the hundreds of dead while hiding all facts. Why their faces were not shown to Media? Why their details were not released? And now we see Army charging against own civilians in Swat. Result could be the same as of a map shown in Pakistani media that showed NWFP separate from Pakistan.



You should also note that all of the operations committed by Army were very tactically handled that opponents were very successfully labeled as “terrorists” by media, be it Bengali, Urdu Speaking supports of a political party, Lal Masjid clerics or people of Swat. There is a complete blue print that these mercenary generals and their shameless experts in media follow to fool Pakistanis to justify their wrong acts and to justify that it is “terrorists” this army is fighting.



I pray that may Allah help Pakistanis in realizing this game and step forward to publicly punish corrupt politicians of Pakistan and burn alive the mercenary generals of Pakistan to take revenge of thousands of deaths in Afghanistan and now in FATA.



May Allah’s lanat on those who create false propaganda against Mujahideen and may Allah’s fierce azaab on Munafiqun who portray themselves as Islamic to appear as “Rahbar” but in fact are “Rahzan” to mislead people, may Allah grant glorious victory to those who are fighting in the name of the Almighty and supremacy and implementation of Islam.
