Pak militants ban political parties in Fata

Until now we had the political parties banning the militants, and it was getting boring. so now a twist in the tale, Militants are banning political parties.

ISLAMABAD: The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and Tehreek-e-Nifaz-e-Shariat-e-Muhammadi (TNSM) have now banned political parties in the Bajaur region of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA).

Both the separatist organizations have also issued a jirga banning meeting of more than three persons at a same place. According to the Daily Times, the decision was taken after four persons were killed in a clash between the activists of these two groups. The latest ban adds to the long list of activities that the Taliban has prohibited in the region.

The outlawed outfit had also barred women from venturing out of their house alone. Sale and purchase of music cds and film videos have also been banned. Growing beard and wearing turban has been made mandatory for men in the region.

Meanwhile, Taliban militants from Pakistan’s Swat valley are refusing to leave the Buner district which they forcibly occupied and have established a big base in the town, located just 100 km from the federal capital. The continued presence of the Taliban has forced the leaders of the Awami National Party, which rules the North West Frontier Province, to leave the region and the intervention of the tribal peace jirga to make them vacate the area has failed, The News daily reported on Tuesday.

The Taliban from Swat moved into Buner about two weeks ago. They have occupied a three-storey bungalow owned by a businessman in Sultanwas village and are using it as their headquarters, the paper said.

Kasab oblivious to seriousness of charges: Lawyer

Well then why dont we make him aware of the seriousness and just hang him (and not shooting please, shooting is for soldiers not terrorists) . Why do we have to always drag our court cases till the whole world laughs at us, and in the mean time give them more reasons to laugh because of the faux pas by our babus. I guess we have gotten a hang out of the never ending daily soaps on TV and want to make one from this story as well..

Pakistani terrorist Mohammad Ajmal Amir Kasab does not understand the gravity of the Mumbai terror attacks case or the charges against him, senior criminal lawyer Abbas Kazmi said after being appointed to defend him on Thursday.

[…]

“It is clear from the way he was laughing and giggling in the Special Court on Wednesday and Thursday that Kasab has no inkling of the seriousness of the case against him,” Kazmi said.

400 militants may cross over into India

400 militants crossing over into India…. Am wondering if the congress government is arranging a reception committee to welcome them. They would be weary and tired after all the traveling they would have done. Also they belong to a community which sadly has been converted into a “vote bank” over the last 60 odd years, and they cant afford to loose their “vote bank”. And with basic arithmetic, if 10 militants killed more than 150 in November last year ……..hmm… 400 can kill 6000… I guess i got my math right.

When will we take terrorism seriously and stop making it look like a smoke screen created by the saffron brigade.?

Srinagar: Ahead of elections, infiltration bids across the Line of Control have increased. As many as 400 militants are reportedly waiting to cross over from Pakistan and the Army has launched massive combing operations.

The Army has killed 28 militants over the past two weeks in Kupwara but it has also lost 11 men, mostly from the elite Special Forces in the jungle warfare.

With Taliban on the loose in Pakistan, security forces have intensified patrolling and reviewed security along the LoC. A greater synergy of intelligence sharing between police and army has thwarted many such incursions.

But despite the counter-infiltration measures, sources say 20-40 militants – mostly from the Lashkar-e-Toiba – may have managed to sneak in.

It’s a clear and present danger, especially with intercepts by security forces suggesting that the Taliban might give direct or indirect support to the militancy in Kashmir.

UK police identify 200 children as potential terrorists

If this is the case with a “developed” UK, then I guess its no suprise that the kids in the “underdeveloped” Pakistan and Bangladesh and to some extent India are being attracted to Islamic terrorism. We surely have a problem at hand.

At least 200 schoolchildren in Britain, some as young as 13, have been identified as potential terrorists, prompting drastic new tactics to prevent teenagers becoming attracted to Islamic extremist ideology.

Sir Norman Bettison, Britain’s most senior officer in charge of terror prevention, revealed the number, which had leapt from 10 children identified by June 2008.

“Channel project” had intervened in the cases of at least 200 children who were thought to be at risk of extremism, since it began 18 months ago. The number has leapt from 10 children identified by June 2008,” Bettison was quoted as saying by ‘The Independent’ newspaper.

Inayat Bunglawala of the Muslim Council of Britain agreed that in recent years youngsters have been attracted by terrorist propaganda emanating from Al-Qaida-inspired groups.

“Clearly in recent years some people have been lured by terrorist propaganda emanating from
Al-Qaida-inspired groups,” he underlined. “It would seem that a number of Muslim youngsters have been seduced by that narrative and all of us, including the government, have a role to play in making sure that narrative is seen for what it is: a nihilistic one which offers no hope, only death and destruction,” Bunglawala said.

The scheme, funded by the Home Office, involves police officers working alongside Muslim communities to identify impressionable children who show attraction to extreme views or susceptibility to being “groomed” by radicalisers.

Keen to negate the idea that Muslim children were unfairly targetted, the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) last night said the aim was to steer vulnerable children away from radicalism before it was too late.

“We are targeting criminals and would-be terrorists who happen to be cloaking themselves in Islamic rhetoric. That is not the same as targeting the Muslim community,” said Bettison, the chief constable of West Yorkshire Police.
