China Publicly Names Pakistan For Mumbai Terror Attacks

Updated on 9 July, 2016 at 8:09 am By

For the first time China has publicly acknowledged Pakistan’s role in terror attacks that took place in Mumbai in 2008.

The terror attack that took place between November 26 and 29, 2008 had claimed 164 lives and left another 308 injured.

The disclosure came in the form of a documentary aired on Chinese State Television – CCTV9 – recently.

The documentary highlighted the role of the Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) and its sponsors in Pakistan.



And only two days later, on June 9, Beijing’s opportunity to put on hold the listing of LeT/JuD(Jamaat-ud-Dawa) militants Hafiz Abdul Rahman Makki, Talha Saeed and Hafiz Abdul Rauf, will expire.

The UNSC-backed listing would ban all three terrorists but China has not been in support of the same and is the only permanent member against it at the behest of Pakistan.

India gave evidence against Pakistan’s involvement in the Mumbai terror attacks, which, obviously, Islamabad initially denied. Investigations called Islamabad’s lies and eventually the Pak hand was established through Ajmal Kasab’s testimony, the deposition of David Headley and a series of other events.

It is too early to comment on why China named Pakistan in the documentary but one cannot, as of now, read too much into it because the importance Pakistan has in Beijing’s plans.
