IT is really disgraceful for the Chief Executive of a State to get his men in uniform killed for his personal gains; election victory (re-election in 2019 elections). Such an act is a direct conspiracy and sedition against the state, state institutions and, above all, the devoted soldiers who defend the national frontiers. This heinous crime, an act of treason was done by the BJP-lead Government under Prime Minister Modi. On 14 February 2019, an explosive-laden car rammed into the bus which was carrying over 40 Central Reserve Police Force personnel in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir. PM Modi used the death of Indian soldiers to gain sympathy for his re-election for the election-2019.
As disclosed through the social media leakages of Indian journalist and anchor of a television channel, Arnab Goswami, the Pulwama attack was in fact a false flag operation of Indian Government. Arnab Goswami has been very close to Prime Minister Modi, General BipanRawat and RSS. Being closer to Indian top echelons, the journalist had the insight of the Indian false flag operation and its perspective. Besides this, the anchor had first-hand knowledge of the Indian Air Force (IAF) attack at Balakot (which proved a hoax as IAF aircraft just ejected the payload and escaped without any attack on any physical object, as later claimed by India).
Like his bosses in the political and military circles, Arnab Goswami was very happy over the killing of over 40 Indian soldiers in the attack, since it was the first phase of Modi’s election victory. The leaked WhatsApp chats of the journalist Arnab Goswami with Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC) CEO Partho Dasgupta revealed that he (Arnab) knew about the Pulwama attack at least three days in advance (23 February 2019). Goswami also told Partho Dasgupta about the intensity of the planned IAF in the wording that it would be “bigger than a normal strike”. The WhatsApp conversations clearly disclose that India had the planning to strike Pakistan at massive level through IAF. Nevertheless, the vigilant PAF did not allow a free space for Indian Air Force.
Indeed, India has a history of false flag operation against Pakistan. While taking advantage of the incident of 9/11, Indian spying network planned and executed the infamous Parliament attack in December 2001 and mobilized its armed forces to attack Pakistan. Later, in November 2008, India conducted another major false flag operation; the 2008 Mumbai attack killing over 160 people which also included foreign nationals. This was aimed at creating international impact against Pakistan. After the Mumbai false flag operation, India tried to attack Pakistan which was deterred by the PAF. Subsequent Indian false flag operations include; Pathankot attack on Indian Air Base of 02 January 2016 and Uri attack of 18 September 2016.
The 2008, Mumbai attack was a false flag operation, staged-managed by Indian Government. Very surprisingly, the leadership of this greatest democracy of the world has dared to kill its own citizens to defame its neighbours or else for strengthening anti-terrorist laws, again against its own people. According to Times of India, a former Under Secretary of Indian Home Ministry Mr R V S Mani, has revealed that “the Indian government, not Pakistan, was behind the Parliament Attack (13/12, 2001) and Mumbai Attack (26/11 2008) India.” This officer of the rank of Under Secretary of Indian Home Ministry was categorical in his revelation that this was orchestrated by India to formulate and strengthen the counter-terrorism laws in India and to defame Pakistan.
As per the Times of India, Mr Mani has submitted signed affidavits in the court. A member of CBI-SIT probe team, Mr Satishverma has told him that these attacks were set up “with the objective of strengthening the counter-terror legislation.” The unfortunate attacks on Indian financial capital Mumbai on 26 November 2008, had killed over 160 innocent people, including Hemant Karkare; in-charge of Anti-terror Squad, who was conducting inquiry of terror attack committed by serving Indian Army officer, Colonel Prashad Srikant Purohit; arrested on the charges of attack on Malegaon Mosque bomb blast and Samjota Express.
On 13 December 2001, India alleged Pakistani intelligence agencies in an attack made on its Parliament and taking that as a raison d’être, mobilized its forces all along the international border. Later investigations could not prove the allegations on Pakistan and a poor Kashmiri Afzal Guru, was arrested and subsequently hanged on 09 February 2013, a political murder indeed. Earlier in 2000, India stage-managed a drama of killing 36 Sikhs in India-occupied Kashmir, on the eve of the visit of former US President, Bill Clinton. Later investigation proved that the RAW was behind the killing of these Sikhs to defame Pakistan. Again, in 2007, Hindu extremist elements burnt alive dozens of the passengers of Samjhota Express near Panipat while en-route to Pakistan and immediately levelled the changes against Pakistani intelligence agencies.
The Pulwama attack was a false flag operation, aimed to defame Pakistan and gain global sympathy, while concealing its oppression against Kashmiris of IIOJK. Through its superior strategy and military planning, Pakistan reversed the repeated Indian military misadventures. The disclosures of Arnab Goswami, EU Disinfo Lab, British Court and many other incidents as mentioned above reveals Indian intentions against its neighbours and rest of the world. These incidents have exposed Indian allegations strategy and fabricated claims, it has been labelling against Pakistan ever since 2001. On its part, Pakistan today stand at a higher pedestal with unparalleled contributions and incomparable sacrifices for the maintenance of regional and global peace. Indian masses and its intellectuals must question their Government for its foul play at the domestic level where minorities and Dalits are totally discriminated. International community, the UN, the US and major powers must scold Indian Government for the dangerous role, India is playing both at regional level and as a potential threat to international peace.
