Militant group: Pakistani ISI using prisoner for propaganda

Miranda GreerApr 30, 2017

Nafees Zakaria, spokesman for Pakistan's foreign ministry, said Thursday that Ahsan had laid down arms and revealed the role of foreign spy agencies in attacks in Pakistan.

Khurasani says Pakistan's Inter-Services-Intelligence is using a "prisoner" for propaganda against them. He refuted what he called ISI's "childish" acts and "non-serious" claims of Ahsan. He was the public face of the Pakistani Taliban for several years, and claimed a number of high-profile attacks on their behalf, including the near-fatal shooting in 2012 of Malala Yousafzai, a young activist for women's education.

Pakistan Military spokesman Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor last week announced that Ehsanullah Ehsan, a top Jamaat-ul-Ahrar terror group leader, had turned himself in to security agencies. He was a senior figure in that group before his surrender to authorities. What is clear though is that the attack on the military base, which is also the headquarters of Afghan National Army's 209 Corps, was an act of revenge on Afghan security forces and their worldwide backers deployed in the country for killing the Taliban's senior leaders.

Despite the insistence of Obama administration officials that the two have only recently rekindled a relationship, Roggio said al-Qaida has enjoyed long-term Taliban support in Afghanistan.

According to the notification, a terrorist can not be allowed to use any channel as a platform for an interview as it would undermine the efforts of the Pakistan Army soldiers, who have fought against militants and laid down their lives for the country.

USA officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

"My name is Liaquat Ali, aka Ehsanullah Ehsan, and I belong to the Mohmand Agency", Ehsan is heard saying at the beginning of the six-minute-long video. Like Modi, Sharif, too, had business interests in mind, and he believed that friendly ties with a country set to become an economic giant in the next ten years would also boost Pakistan's frail economy.

"They supported them (Pakistani Taliban), funded them, and even assigned possible targets [for attacks in Pakistan]", Eshan asserted, adding that anti-Pakistan militants have established their "special committees" in Afghanistan for maintaining contacts with the NDS. Independent media have had virtually no access to North Waziristan since 2014. Jadhav, who was arrested by Pakistani authorities in March past year, was later shown on TV "confessing" his role as an Indian spy.

Pakistan's military released a video on Wednesday of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) militant group's former spokesperson alleging that Afghanistan and Indian intelligence agencies gave funds and other assistance to the group's militants to fight Islamabad, reports state.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to speak to media on the record.
