ISI and separatists are bound to get disturbed and organize Manipur like attacks

Mumbai, June 8: The fatal attack on Indian Army's convoy last Thursday in Manipur’s Chandel district in which  18 Jawans of 6 Dogra regiment were martyred was not just a normal attack by the separatists of Manipur. It was the well orchestrated attack which may have been organized by the separatist groups like NSCN (K) but the role of Pakistan’s ISI and other Jihadi groups cannot be ruled out.

At least, the well researched report published in ‘Indian Defence Review’ by an expert RSN Singh suggests the same. According to this report, it is being suspected that Islamic group of Manipur particularly like Peoples United Liberation Front (PULF) may be involved in planning with ISI. This was the biggest attack of its kind in 33 years.

Given the negative history of PULF, their role cannot be denied because in the past also some operatives of PULF have been arrested after which it was revealed that several senior cadres of the outfit have trained in Pakistan.

Not only this, in the past also, ISI has been known to be working with other ultra groups of North East like ULFA in order to destabilize the region

PULF was formed somewhere in 1993 by Manipur’s local muslim community called as Pangals. Their cadres were mainly comprised of pangals of Manipur and other people of muslim community from Assam.

PULF carries out its operations in the hilly areas of Chandel, Thoubal and Churachandpur districts, Imphal valley of Manipur along with Nagaon and Barak valley of Assam.

The timing of the recent attack was also coincided with the Bangladesh visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi so that its objective could be weaken down.

The report of Indian Defence Review also pointed out the possibility of involvement of proxy groups like Lashkar-e-Toiba working in tandem with ISI, Maoist groups and other Chinese funded separatist groups. It has its reasons which dates back to December 2006 arrest of three Manipuris namely i.e. ‘Salmaan Khurshid (23), Abdul Rahman (24), and Mohd Akbar Hussain (20) by the Delhi Police. They were all carrying 20 Kg of RDX, detonators and hand-grenades.

It also mentioned the detailed article written by T. Khurshchev Singh which explained the nexus between LeT and Manipuri youth and their possible training/grooming session in POK.

These trained militants acted as the link between Bangladeshi modules of LeT and PULF of Manipur. Actually, these Islamic radicalized groups began to flourish in the North Eastern state post 1993 clash between Meiti and Pangal muslims.

Off late, Pakistan’s political faction along with media and other experts started blaming India on every forum for the rise of terrorism in Pakistan and the destabilization of its western parts like Baluchistan. So, one can definitely draw some points and conclusions of the recent attacks on Indian army in North East.

Recently Pakistan has witnessed many suchfatal attacks especially against minority section of the country including Shias, Ismailis, Ahmedis and Christians. On the other hand, Pakistani Army is busy in Zar-e-Azb operation against the Talibanis on western borders which were once differentiated as good and bad talibanis.

Overall, General Raheel Sharif and PM Nawaz Sharif themselves are clueless about their actions and now to delude their people and to channelize their angst towards India, they started blaming Indian Intelligence agencies like R&AW.

The recent report mentioned about the unholy nexus of ISI, Manipur’s PULF and Bangladesh’s Directorate General of Forces Intelligence (DGFI) and how it got the support of Bangladesh’s powerful opposition leader Khaleda Zia who every now and then tried to root out Current Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. Khaleda Zia is known for her Anti-India and Anti Hindu endorsement and it can be understood very well that why ISI found it difficult to carry out its operation in Bangladesh during the regime of Sheikh Hasina.

So, it becomes very essential to note it down when experts says that the relations must improve between India and Bangladesh during PM Modi’s and Pm Hasina’s regime. It is very important for Modi Government to make her hands strong so that she can go in front of Bangladeshis and tell them about the fruitful results and aspects of friendship between both the countries.

Former ISI chief Assad Durrani also revealed in the past that ISI funds Khaleda Zia’s Bangladesh Nationalist Party to work against India-friendly regime.

Though time and again India has conveyed its concerns to Myanmar for the use of its soil for Anti-India activities but the the unholy nexus between ISI, Chinese funded separatists and other Islamic radical outfits of North Eastern region are carrying out their activities. However, according to the Ajay Sahni, Executive Director of the Institute of Conflict Management in New Delhi, violence in the Manipur and other adjoining states are on the downward trend but "But this is a reminder well-armed groups, which are reasonably well coordinated, are able to carry out opportunistic attacks."

Also, it is very important to see that recently AFSPA was removed from Tripura after 18 years but immediately after this, Manipur like attacks happened which raises the question on the institutions and organizations demanding the removal of AFSPA in other North Eastern states. Surely, this is not the right time to do so.

All these developments are to be seen carefully when a strong Nationalist  NDA government under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is taking keen interest in the development of North-Eastern region of India which is till now proved to be the playground of Pakistan, China and Separatists.

PM Modi is binding together the each and every part of India and with special focus on bringing North Eastern states to the mainstream of the country, he is surely proving to be the nightmare of the enemies of India.

In the meanwhile, Indian Army has started a massive operation against these attackers and sealed off Indo-Myanmar borders completely so that these perpetrators wont be able take the benefit of porous border areas and dense forests.
