Musharraf admits that Pakistan Intelligence was hands in gloves with Masood Azhar led JeM to carry out bomb blasts in India

Pakistan renewed its pretence of cracking down on terror when Pakistan's chief terrorist and Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed-led Jamaat-ud-Dawa and its wing Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation were formally placed in the list of banned organisations. Pakistan had also taken into 'preventive detention' for 'investigation' 40 members of Jaish-e-Mohammad.

Pakistan renewed its pretence of cracking down on terror when Pakistan’s chief terrorist and Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed-led Jamaat-ud-Dawa and its wing Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation were formally placed in the list of banned organisations. Pakistan had also taken into ‘preventive detention’ for ‘investigation’ 44 terrorists of Jaish-e-Mohammad. In a recent interview, when asked to comment on this development, former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Parvez Musharraf admitted that Pakistan intelligence agencies, ISI, were hands in gloves with Jaish-e-Mohammad to carry out bomb blasts in India.

This stunning revelation was made on ‘Hum TV digital’ to a Pakistani journalist called Nadeem Malik. In response to the question, Musharraf said that this was a right move by the Pakistani government since he has been asserting for a long time that these are terrorist organisations.

He said that the assassination attempt on his life back in 2003 on the Jhanda Chichi bridge was carried out by Jaish-e-Mohammad and hence, he has always considered them as terrorists. He said that because of the terrain of the area back then, they had pressed the button late, and hence their assassination attempt had failed.

Nadeem Malik then asks Musharraf why he never moved to ban Jaish-e-Mohammad since he was all-powerful back then and it was only after 2007 that his powers started dwindling.

Musharraf then said that era was different and he doesn’t have an answer to why he couldn’t ban the terrorist outfit.

Parvez Musharraf then proceeded to make a stunning revelation. He said that Pakistan intelligence agencies were in cohorts with Jaish-e-Mohammad at that time to carry out bomb blasts in India and that is why no action was taken against JeM.

It is to be recalled here that Jaish-e-Mohammad was indicted along with Lashkar-e-Tayyaba in the Parliament attack of 2001 and most recently, they claimed responsibility for the Pulwama terrorist attack that was sponsored by Pakistan and claimed the lives of 44 CRPF soldiers. Recently, India had conducted airstrikes deep inside Pakistan territory against JeM terror camps in Balakot.

Earlier, Pakistan FM had admitted that the Pakistan establishment was in touch with Masood Azhar and it was evident that he was in their protection. Now with this revelation by Musharraf, it becomes evident that ISI and the Pakistan government is as involved in the terror attacks that take place on Indian soil and Pakistan’s pretence of cracking down on terror is just that, mere hogwash.
