Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, who is on a ‘low-cost’ trip to the United States to seek cheap loans to run his country, has now come up with a new conspiracy theory toeing the lines of Indian ‘liberals’. Imran Khan has now claimed that Pulwama terrorist attack which claimed more than 40 CRPF soldiers’ life was an “indigenous job”.
Imran Khan, the chocolate hero of Indian liberals, speaking at the US Institute of Peace, a US-Congress funded think-tank, claimed that Pulwama attack was “an indigenous thing” and Pakistan was dragged into the picture because Islamic terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed was based in his country, which also operated in Kashmir claimed responsibility for the attack.
Imran Khan, who has earned a moniker ‘Taliban Khan’ went on to say that the Pulwama attack was a reaction by a Kashmiri boy radicalised by the brutality of the security forces.
“This whole thing, Pulwama, what happened in February last year, it was clearly an indigenous thing. It was a Kashmiri boy radicalised by the brutality of the security forces. He blew himself up. But because this group (Jaish-e-Mohammad) claimed responsibility which was in India as well, Jaish-e-Mohammad was operating in India, Pakistan suddenly came into the limelight,” said Imran Khan.
Interestingly, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan seems to have taken the mantle from Indian liberals and Indian opposition parties, which had also coincidentally stuck to similar rhetorics of Pulwama being an inside job while sparing terror state of Pakistan from any blame.
Following the Pulwama attack, many Congress supporters had floated conspiracy theories that Pulwama was an ‘inside job’ carried out on behest of Prime Minister Modi. One Congress leader and conman who questioned Pulwama as an ‘inside job’ was given a Lok Sabha ticket by the party. A Goa Congress leader had even asked for proof of the terror attack and accused PM Modi of ‘planning’ the Pulwama attack.
A Karnataka Congress MP even said that the Pulwama attack was a ‘match-fixing’ between PM Modi and Pakistan. Congress party had even raised questions asking how did explosives reach the spot indirectly accusing the Modi government of carrying out an inside job.
It is not just limited to the Congress party. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had stated that PM Modi knew about Pulwama attack earlier and did not do anything to stop it.
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan while launching his tirade against India, seems to have been inspired by the Indian liberals and opposition leaders. It is evident that the Indian liberal industry comprising of ‘peaceniks’, left-wing ideologues, anti-BJP and anti-Hindu propagandists have provided enough fodder to Imran Khan to push this ‘inside job’ rhetoric.
It is often difficult to decide whether the Indian ‘liberals’ are inspired by Pakistan or Pakistan is learning how to spin its image aided by the lies and venom spewed by Indian ‘liberals’. However, what is evident is that Imran Khan is using this narrative to try and absolve his terror state of bleeding India with a thousand cuts.
With such alibis, the terror apparatus in Pakistan will be further emboldened to carry out terror attacks inside the country as they seem to be particularly confident that Indian liberal circuit and opposition parties will not only absolve Pakistan but also hold Indian state responsible for those terror attacks.
To seek vengeance against Narendra Modi and the BJP, the Indian liberals and opposition parties have now gone well beyond pity tactics of blame-game. Wittingly or unwittingly, the liberal cabal has played into the hands of Pakistani establishment which now uses words of our own to not only point fingers against Indian state but also seek credibility for themselves.
