India, Pakistan and Afghanistan join hands with America to prevent Taliban

Could Pakistan fall to a Taliban-al-Qaida coup? Is India looking at the possibility of a Talibanized neighbour to its west, one with access to nuclear weapons? If Pakistan’s senior minister for information Sherry Rahman is to be believed, Pakistan is in the midst of a serious internal security threat from a collection of Taliban, al-Qaida and J&K terrorist elements who want to take over the country, according to a news report in Times of India dated 15.9.2008.   Indian security sources said they have been receiving reports of a steady infiltration of Taliban and al-Qaida elements in Pakistan’s biggest cities of Lahore and Karachi recently. In fact, in a recent incident which rang alarm bells, there were a number of Taliban posters in Karachi and Taliban spokespersons were quoted promising a better government in Sindh. 

Rahman’s statements were made during an in-camera briefing on national security and the war on terror in Pakistan’s national assembly on Tuesday.

Rahman went on to state that the Taliban, who are trying to oust the Pakistan government, also had links with their Afghan counterparts and groups operating in J&K. While the fear of Taliban influence in Pakistan has increased in recent years, the latest assertions by a senior Pakistan minister linking the Taliban with J&K terror groups are a cause for concern in India.

India has been concerned about Taliban making inroads into urban areas and cities of Pakistan which are located close to the border. Only two days ago, MQM leader Altaf Hussain made a statement that more than 400,000 Taliban men had infiltrated Karachi. The Pakistani media recently carried reports about Taliban warning traders in Lahore not to sell «immoral» stuff.

Meanwhile, Pakistan’s NSA Mahmud Ali Durrani on Tuesday called on the PM, foreign minister and the foreign secretary. He also interacted with the National Security Council Secretariat and members of the National Security Advisory Board.

Durrani, who met NSA M K Narayanan on Monday, denied any ISI role in the blast at the Indian embassy in Kabul. He described the reports as «incorrect». India had taken up the issue of Kabul bombing and ceasefire violations along the LoC in a big way with Durrani. The two sides have also agreed for a joint anti-terror mechanism meeting later this month.

It is clear from the above news report that there has been a change of perception in Pakistan’s ruling circles as they have realized that militants in J&K are not freedom fighters but are terrorists who in league with the Talibans and Al Qaeda groups operating in Afghanistan and Pakistan are out to grab power in these two countries.  This would also mean that they would try to have control over the nuclear bombs built by the Pakistani scientists.If nukes fall into their hands, they would be the first to use it against India to change India into a Muslim country and spread obscurantist and outmoded teachings in Afghanistan, Pakistan and India and later on in Bangladesh.  The last time, they had their sway over Afghanistan, they used power to curtail personal rights and particularly, the rights of the women to suit their outdated belief in the holy Quran.  They forced all men to have long beards with only moustaches shaved, forced all women to wear Burqa
(veil that covers one from head to toe) and banned all entertainment including music. They also imposed Sharia Laws on their people.  So, in a way they tried to take the world to the seventh Century when Islam had developed little thinking that the world has since changed and needed reformation in Sharia Laws.

It is of utmost importance that these Taliban alongwith Al Qaeda and J&K militants should be checked.  Of course, USA and NATO powers have their presence in Afghanistan and from there, they strike the Taliban-Al Qaeda network in Pakistan also.  However, they need to be strongly supported by the local people.  Now that their threat has spread to Pakistan, India alongwith Afghanistan and Pakistan should join hands with America to defeat these fundamentalist forces whether they are operating in Afghanistan or Pakistan or Kashmir or the rest of India.  We must deal firmly with these backward looking forces and enforce real secular system in the same manner in which Kamal Ata Turk Pasha had enforced it in Turkey.  The question is whether India, Pakistan and Afghanistan would join with USA in this venture against terrorist teams of Taliban-Al Qaeda and J&K militants?
