Pakistan is the world’s largest exporter of terrorism – if that is measured as an industry. The country is home to some of the world’s most wanted men who move around as freely within the country as any other Pakistani citizen.
That Pakistan cares little about what the world’s opinion can be seen from how Hizbul Mujahideen founder Syed Salahuddin was allowed to hold a rally and welcomed like an emperor in Muzaffarabad just days after the US declared him a global terrorist.
The presence of the terror bosses and the very high level of Islamic fundamentalism in the society has turned Pakistan into a failed state with no future except perhaps, become, the supplier of chemical weapons to terrorists.
According to a report published by News18, Hizbul Mujahideen is now getting chemical weapons from Pakistan.
Hizbul Mujahideen is the terrorist group most active in Kashmir and which recruited a large number of youth from the Valley such as the slain terrorists Burhan Wani and Sabzar Ahmad.
The report says that intercepts of conversations between terrorists prove that Hizbul terrorists may have already got their hands on chemical weapons.
The transcripts clearly point at Pakistan’s involvement in the terror activities in Kashmir. According to the report, there is a clear mention of chemical weapons during the conversation, which the terrorists are planning to use as a change of tactics.
If the report is true then there is a real reason to be worried. Chemical weapons do untold devastation and its horrors have been seen by the world in the ongoing war in Syria.
But why would terrorists need chemical weapons?
One major reason is that the Indian Army and other security agencies have been successfully eliminating all of the terrorists in the Valley while preventing the influx of more terrorists from the across the border.
Indian security forces eliminated 100 terrorists in the first six months of the 2017, a unique achievement.
And while the elimination of terrorists continues, the youth of the Valley are slowly but steadily gravitating away from the Separatist narratives and becoming part of India’s mainstream. Many of the Valley’s young men are joining police and other military wings or becoming civil service officers.
The terrorists had in May abducted and killed Lieutenant Ummer Fayaz Parray who had joined the Indian Army and was deployed in Kashmir.
Perhaps it is the frustration of the terrorist groups. But whatever reason it may be, chemical weapons are an altogether different level because the terror attack on Amarnath pilgrims which killed 8 people, including the one who died today, proves that terrorists will kill unarmed civilians.
It is a known fact that Pakistan’s ISI supports terrorists with weapons, money and intelligence inputs. The Pakistani establishment, on the other hand, allows the use of the country as a safe haven for all kinds of anti-India, anti-Afghanistan, and anti-US terrorist groups and their leaders such as the Haqqani Network, the Taliban, Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammad, Hafiz Saeed, Maulana Masood Azhar and Dawood Ibrahim.
