Few weeks ago, I wrote an article with a title “Ready or Not they are Coming” which was published by many blogs. In that write up it is mentioned that how ISIS is making their roots in Pakistani society; it was really an alarming situation for religious minorities as well as the modern Muslims.
But surprisingly the Pakistani Army officials stated that “There could be isolated cases where they are trying to show their presence or to become relevant, but I don’t see this growing into a major threat”, whereas these Militants, either they are Taliban’s or al-Qaeda, were always a major threat to our country even dozens of times they entered into Army Installations as well and twice Pakistani Airports were attacked by these militants. What If these Militants join hands with ISIS, will this not be the threat to the Pakistani community? According to the information many Taliban’s commanders have already joined ISIS as well as many other Islamic groups and those who were associated with Al-Qaeda also accepted Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi as their Caliph.
However the former Pakistani Ex-Interior Minister Rehman Malik claimed that he had A documentary evidence about the presence of ISIS in Pakistan. He stated:
“I have solid proofs that ISIS has established its contacts with the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan and it is quite possible that one of the Taliban’s leaders will soon be named as its chief in Pakistan,” he said. When asked about documents he possessed, the PPP leader said: “I will brief the nation about documentary proofs and will make them public in a couple of days,”
And even yesterday one of the trustees of Lal Masjid Shuhada Foundation “Ihtashamul Haq” has filed a petition against the police; he claimed that after the release of a video message by students of Jamia Hafsa, the Islamabad Police has started harassing them.
The Lal Masjid (Red Mosque) and Jamia Hafsa already grabbed the headlines in 2007 when the then president Gen. Musharraf ordered the army to hold an operation in Lal Masjid and Jamia Hafsa.
You will be surprised that these students of Jamia Hafsa released a video message in which they openly supported ISIS; here is the video and after watching the video if you still think that there is NO ISIS and their supporters in Pakistan then you are living in the fool’s paradise.
