BLA-Daesh collusion behind surge in terror attacks

The current wave of terrorist attacks in Balochistan is the outcome of collusion between the Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA) and Daesh with the objective of creating unrest in the country, well-informed sources in the security establishment told Business Recorder.

Although Daesh has no significant organizational presence in Pakistan, yet intelligence officials maintain that its complicity with Baloch separatists cannot be ruled out; they further maintain that there is evidence of Indian support for terror activities in Pakistan to destabilize Pakistan and derail the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

A suicide bombing inside a mosque claimed 15 lives, including a deputy superintendent of police, and left 19 others wounded in the Satellite Town area of Quetta on January 10 just two days after a targeted attack on a Frontier Corps vehicle in a busy market of the provincial capital. Daesh claimed responsibility of the suicide bombing on the mosque.

Brigadier (retd) Mehmood Shah, while talking to Business Recorder termed the recent attacks in Balochistan a continuation of the Indian policy of sponsoring terrorism in Pakistan. “India is funding BLA as well as the local branch of Daesh to create unrest in Pakistan," he said.

Senior analyst Lt Gen (retd) Talat Masood said that successive terror attacks in restive Balochistan indicate that terrorists have again become active in the province.

“The role of Daesh in these attacks is evident as it wants to maintain its dominance over other terror groups," he said, accusing India of supporting Daesh to carry out attacks in Pakistan.

According to media reports the mosque targeted was sometimes used by a Taliban leader, Molvi Abdul Hakeem, but he was not present at the time of the attack. Qari Muhammad Yousuf Ahmadi, said that no Taliban leader was present in the mosque during the attack and no meeting was taking place at the mosque when it was attacked.

Indian support to terrorists groups such as BLA and Daesh....what is new? Question is what are we doing to force India to change its behavior? Similar blasts should not have rocked Delhi and Mumbai? well they should had been. When will Pakistan establishment get out of its comfort zone and confront India back in its home ground where it will hurt the most. Instead we have neither taken any action in Kashmir nor have we even tried to exploit the fault lines present within India.
