Pakistan not taking sufficient action against terror organisations, says US country report on Terrorism 2017

The US on Wednesday said that according to the US annual country report for the year 2017, the Jaish-e-Mohammad and Lashkar-e-Taiba terror groups are constantly creating threats in the Indian sub-continent and that Pakistan did not pay adequate attention to the US concerns over terrorism in 2017.

In its report, the US state department said that though the terrorist organisation, al-Qaida has weakened in Afghanistan and Pakistan its regional organisation still remains a threat to the Indian subcontinent. The two Pakistan sponsored terrorist organisations, Jaish-e-Mohammed and the Lashkar-e-Taiba are also a constant threat to the Indian subcontinent.

The report says, “Pakistan did not take sufficient action against other externally focused groups such as Lashkar e-Tayyiba (LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) in 2017, which continued to operate, train, organize, and fundraise in Pakistan. Pakistan detained Hafiz Saeed, the leader of LeT and its front organization Jamaat ul-Dawa (JuD) in January 2017, but a Pakistani court ordered Hafiz Saeed released from house arrest in November 2017.”

The US lambasted at Pakistan for its lackadaisical attitude towards its state-sponsored terrorism. It said that India has been continuously bearing attacks through these terror organisations and have always blamed Pakistan for the cross-border terrorism in Jammu- Kashmir but Pakistan has not paid any heed to these concerns.

The US report further reiterated that though in its 2017 annual country report its state department categorically mentioned that the terror organisations operating out of out of Pakistan are a constant threat to the Indian subcontinent and no action has been ever taken by Pakistan in connection to the same. It also reportedly mentions that Indian is constantly under attack by Pakistan based terror outfits externally and Maoists internally.

Earlier to we had reported that the US in an attempt to tighten Pakistan’s stance on terrorism had said that, in order to receive the funding, Pakistan would have to show sufficient progress in fighting terrorism. These conditions put forth by America last year were related to Pakistan’s support of terror organisation and terrorists about which US lawmakers have continually expressed concerns.

As per latest reports, the US administration cancelled $300m in Pakistan aid used for the training of Pakistan Army officers, for its failure to take action against militant groups. The US President, Donald Trump has previously accused Pakistan of deceiving the US while receiving billions of dollars.

Last year Iran had also joined India and Afghanistan in ripping into Pakistan for sheltering and exporting terrorism. Iran had hinted that it might be considering “surgical strikes” on Pakistani terror installations on the lines of India.

In September last year, India conducted a surgical strike on Pakistan’s terror installations in the wake of terror attacks on the Army camp at Uri which claims the lives of 19 Indian soldiers.

Pakistan has been for long, nurturing and paddling terrorism. It is a terror factory which is exporting terrorism in the South Asian region. The entire South Asian region has long been facing the consequence of Pakistan-sponsored terrorism.
