Dear Friends,

JAI Hind!

Subject: How Much Do We Know About The Interconnection Between Pakistan and The ISIS.

We are aware that the ISIS have been a scourge to human civilisation.  Where was this crude terrorist outfit formed and who all had been behind the creation of this organisation is still a mystery. Some knowledgeable friends suggest that the ISIS had been the handiwork of Saudi Arabia.

Now, we read a story that “Several serving and senior retired Pak army officer are In West Asia, training the fighters of the ISIS and other like-minded organisations”.

All this has come out from the column of the noted scholar-writer Madhav Nalpat in an excellent and incisive front page write -up in the Sunday Guardian of October 16, 2016, titled, “ISIS Leaders Look to Pakistan For Refuge”.

We are aware that the ISIS, now a decaying force, have been trying various tricks, including the romantic love-bird system to the recent technique of recruiting criminals to boost the morale of the members of the group. In order to prevent disillusioned fighters from deserting and in a demonstration of outright crudity, they killed some of their fighters for having failed to hold on to certain areas.

As we are aware, the UNO have not yet been able to define terrorism. This has, indeed, been tragic on the part of this US-backed UN. Nalpat writes, ‘The UN Security Council has yet to take up and get implemented India’s two decades-old proposal for a Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism.”

The writer further elaborates, “The ISIS fighters are switching their label to be some moderate opposition fighters and are now being protected by the Turkish Army. In that garb, they expect to recuperate some of the recent losses and get back into the battle against the US and its European allies, just the way the Taliban did in Afghanistan, two years after getting rescued by the Pak ISI in Kunduz and in other locations in 2001.

Those tracking the activities of the ISIS in Iraq and Syria say that the organisation is still nervous about the possibility of Donald Trump winning the US Presidential election in November. Another thought, points out Nalpat, is that 26 leadership elements in the ISIS have been identified to get them to Pakistan through Afghan border and give protection to them, just as Pakistan had shelter Bin Laden.

An analyst has warned India that it needs to “prepare for this new threat, as it is certain that Pakistani military will undertake operations against India and make this as the condition for sheltering, (and should we say, get the price for training the ISIS fighters) the elements (26) of the ISIS leadership in Pakistan”, so very aptly concludes Madhav Nalpat.

For those interested in fuller details, the copy of the write-up of Nalpat is attached.
