Pakistan takes a U-turn on its previous claim, says Bahawalpur ‘seminary’ not linked to Jaish e Mohammad

Pakistan who has a proneness of lying previously said that it had taken over the control of the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) headquarters

Pakistan government, who are habitual liars, have taken a U-turn yet again, dismissing its own previously made claim that it had taken over the control of the Jaish‑e‑Mohammad (JeM) headquarters. They have now said that the complex has no link with the terror outfit, which claimed responsibility for the terror attack in Pulwama in which nearly 40 CRPF soldiers were killed.

Pakistan’s Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry, in a video message on social media, previously had declared that the Punjab government took administrative control of Madrassatul Sabir and Jamia‑e‑Masjid Subhanallah in Bahawalpur, in line with the decisions taken during their National Security Council meeting held on Thursday.

However, going by its proneness to deceive, Chaudhry rejected his earlier announcement that the complex was the terror outfit’s headquarters, and said, “This is the madrassa (seminary). Calling it Jaish headquarters is India’s propaganda.

On Friday, 22nd of February, Chaudhary had told news agency PTI that the Punjab government has “taken over the control of the Jaish headquarters in Bahawalpur”, about 400 km from Lahore. Incidentally, this was the first time in years that the campus had been acknowledged by Pakistan to be the headquarters of the terror outfit JeM led by Masood Azhar.

The statement also read that the crackdown on Jaish “has been taken in line with the decision of the National Security Committee meeting held on Thursday under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Imran Khan”.

“The Islamic seminaries in the campus have a faculty of 70 teachers and 600 students were studying there. Punjab police is providing security and protection to the campus,” the statement read.

Meanwhile, on 23rd February, Saturday, police took a group of local journalists to the place in Bahawalpur and claimed that it is a “routine seminary having no link with JeM”.

“Some 600 students are studying here and none of them is associated with any banned organisation or involved in any terror activity,” police said.

A local journalist, who visited the seminary and spoke to some students and teachers there claimed that “perhaps they were briefed before our visit” since, “When asked about the JeM and Masood Azhar, they showed complete ignorance about them.

Pakistan has been facing India’s umbrage over the ghastly Pulwama attack which consumed the life of 44 CRPF jawans and left several critically injured. Pakistan has been facing immense pressure as India this time decides to even the score with Pakistan.

India stands steadfast in its quest to retribute to the constant security breach and the cowardly attacks Pakistan has been administrating. On one hand, it has created an international pressure by trying to get Pakistan isolated globally, including withdrawal of Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status conferred on Pakistan, hiking customs duty on Pakistani goods exported to India by 200%, vowing to divert water of 3 rivers flowing into Pakistan into the Yamuna and on the other hand India has given a free hand to its army to seek revenge.
