    India funded militants in Kashmir to counter ISI: ex-RAW chief

    In the first admission of its kind, former chief of India’s premier spy agency (RAW) said Indian intelligence agencies have over the years paid militants and separatists, along with mainstream politicians and political parties in Indian Kashmir to compete with Pakistan’s spy agency, ISI.

    “So what’s wrong? What is there to be so shocked or scandalised by. It’s done the world over,” former RAW Chief AS Dulat said, while speaking to NDTV’s Barkha Dutt.

    Elaborating, Dulat said the Indian government quite often paid for the air fares, medical treatment and general upkeep of even hardened pro-Pakistan separatists like Syed Ali Shah Geelani.

    Continuing with the revelations, the former RAW chief admitted India’s ‘spooks’ had been in touch with everyone from ‘separatists and militants’.

    “One of India’s most wanted terrorists Syed Salahuddin was in touch with me and was ready to leave Pakistan and return to India.”

    Further, defending the use of money in Indian-Kashmir, the former RAW chief said it was done in the hope of engaging militants and separatists and also to compete for influence with the ISI.

    “Corrupting someone with money is more ethical and smarter than killing him,” he added.

    Dulat’s statement comes weeks after a verbal tirade between Pakistan and India. Recently, Pakistani leaders and the military have constantly been accusing RAW of funding terror activities in Pakistan. In a a rare public statement after a meeting on May 6, top military commanders accused RAW of fuelling terrorism in the country.

    Alas it is a Pakistani newspaper.. twisting words..to make catchy headlines.

    There is some called funding militant organisations..which involves giving them funds to buy weapons, recruitment etc..pray tell..why would India provide funds to militant organisation that are fighting against her forces

    And then there is something called doing them a favour, like paying their air fair/medical bills of key personnels..in orders to engage with these militant/separatist organisations.

    How can one corrupt a 'genuine' separatist/miltiant?

    The only people, who can be corrupted are corroupt in the first place.

    Earlier they use to take money from Pakistan to create trouble for India.
    Now they took money from India to stop or lessen their nuisance.

    Just goes on to show, how genuine is their cause..when it can bought with few medical bills/air fares and some petty cash.

    That only means that most separatists are slave of money, without any devotion for their real cause. The appropriate headline should be 'RAW out paid ISI to make Kashmiri separatists their bitch.' :lol:

    Source NDTV. Separatists, Militants, Politicos Get Paid by Indian Intelligence Agencies in J&K: Ex-Spy's Explosive Revelations

    In the first ever admission of its kind, one of the most influential and high ranking intelligence officers of India has said that Indian intelligence agencies have over the years, often paid militants and separatists, along with mainstream politicians and political parties in the Kashmir Valley. Speaking exclusively to NDTV, former RAW Chief AS Dulat asked, "So what's wrong? What is there to be so shocked or scandalized by. It's done the world over." Talking about his controversial memoirs: Kashmir - The Vajpayee Years, Mr Dulat elaborated that the Indian government had quite often paid for the air fares, medical treatment and general upkeep of even hardened pro-Pakistan separatists like Syed Ali Shah Geelani. Saying that India's spooks had been in touch with everyone "Separatists and militants", Mr Dulat also argued that one of India's most wanted terrorists Syed Salahuddin had been in touch with him and was ready to leave Pakistan and return to India. Defending the use of money in the Kashmir valley, he said it was done in the hope of engaging militants and separatists and also to compete for influence with the ISI. "Corrupting someone with money is more ethical and smarter than killing him," Mr Dulat said wryly.

    IS NDTV a Pakistani Channel?

    There is difference between "bribing" and "funding" a militant organisation...NDTV headline clearly says the former.

    RAW is funding these organization to establish their need and more funds. Right now India is biggest importer of ammunition in the world. Bombay attack, Kashmir riots and Gujrat riots, all are examples of RAW in action. More riots more funding more lucrative benefits for their honchos.

    Most the so called separatists were on the payroll of RAW. These separatists are double agents.
