Islamabad—A vast network of Indian intelligence agency RAW is operating in Gilgit Baltistan to sabotage not only the mutli-billion dollar China Pakistan Economic Corridor project but also to sow seeds of anarchy and unrest in the area, it has been learnt from reliable sources.
According to these sources, this network is threatening not only the general public but also the government officials particularly those belonging to the state media.
Recently the state media in the area had started programs in support of Pakistan Army but the producers and anchors of these programmes had to stop the programs after receiving life threats from this network.
These sources said that these producers and anchors were also threatened not to lodge complaints against them before the security forces. “They threatened us of dire consequences if we reported and complained about these telephonic threats to the police or other law enforcement agencies,” said one of the anchors on condition of anonymity.
The sources said the RAW network has hired the services of some local people, mostly jobless, who are engaged in instigating hatred against Pakistani state. They said these locals have also been tasked to fan sectarian disharmony and promote the teachings of a particular sect.
Talking to this correspondent, defense analysts were of the view that the recent remarks of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi about Gilgit Baltistan, Azad Kashmir and Balochistan clearly manifest that the extremist led Indian government is bent upon triggering unrest in these regions. “We have no doubts in our minds that the RAW has established its network not only in Gilgit Baltistan but also other regions of the country particularly in Balochistan and Karachi.
While referring to the confessional statement of arrested serving Indian Naval officer Kulbushan Yadav, the defence analysts said Pakistan intelligence agencies need to get activated to foil the sordid designs of RAW against sovereignty of Pakistan.
