Anti Terrorism Campaign
An attempt to unravel the dirty secrets behind Pakistan's terrorism.
"In a startling revelation, former US president Bill Clinton has said Pakistan "withdrew its troops" from Kargil at his insistence and it might be one of the reasons for the ouster of Nawaz Sharif (ex Pakistan president)in a coup." Indian Express
"Pakistani military ruler Gen. Pervez Musharraf also said Pakistan supported militants (terrorists) in Kashmir." CNN Report
"Credible reports continued to indicate official Pakistani support for Kashmiri militant (terrorist) groups that engage in terrorism, such as the Harakat ul-Mujahidin (HUM). The hijackers of the Air India flight reportedly belong to one of these militant groups. One of the HUM leaders, Maulana Masood Azhar, was freed from an Indian prison in exchange for the hostages on the aircraft in the Air India hijacking in December and has since returned to Pakistan." US State Department
"The United States made repeated requests to Islamabad (Pakistan) to end support for elements harboring and training terrorists in Afghanistan and urged the Government of Pakistan to close certain Pakistani religious schools that serve as conduits for terrorism. Credible reports also continued to indicate official Pakistani support for Kashmiri militant groups, such as the Harakat ul-Mujahidin (HUM), that engaged in terrorism." US State Department
"He also said it was necessary to wage jihad against America, for "occupying" Saudi Arabia." The New York Times Magazine

"'There will be hundreds of bin Ladens, even if Americans get bin Laden tomorrow, there are hundreds of bin Ladens sitting inside Afghanistan (and Pakistan),' Rashid says. That means hundreds of young men training to fight wherever their Islamic cause takes them, and, if necessary, to fight America." ABC News
"Terrorism is a criminal act that influences an audience beyond the immediate victim. The strategy of terrorists is to commit acts of violence that draws the attention of the local populace, the government, and the world to their cause. The terrorists plan their attack to obtain the greatest publicity, choosing targets that symbolize what they oppose. The effectiveness of the terrorist act lies not in the act itself, but in the public's or government's reaction to the act." Terrorism Research
"'Most kids here (in madrassahs in Pakistan) go for jihad and I will too, God willing,' said Obeidulla Anwer, 14. 'Jihad is to fight for Islam and the pride of Islam.' Like most of his classmates, he will leave the school at about age 18 and go to a military training camp in Pakistani-controlled Kashmir, Afghanistan or some other secret location. After that training, he said, 'We go to fight in Kashmir, Chechnya, Palestine, Afghanistan.' Asked whether he was prepared to hurt or kill, the boy said: 'I will hurt those who are enemies of Islam. And I know that I could be hurt or killed.'" The Washington Times
Note: The events of September 11, 2001 have opened the eyes of the world. The World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon were targetted as part of a larger plan. There has been a large increase in the number of articles and investigative stories being published on the subject of militant Islamic terrorism. We have decided to concentrate on pre September 11 research to illustrate that not all were blind to this menace. The current powers that be are still trying their best to portray one of the biggest culprits as their main ally.
Pakistan, is a wolf in sheep's clothing.
Update: Here is what the Pakistani dictator, General Musharraf (and the ruling Pakistani elite) really think about co-operating with us in the War Against Terrorism.
"Some ulema are trying to react on pure emotions. I want to remind them of Islam's early history. The moved from Mecca to Medina (hijrat). Was this (God forbid) cowardice? This was wisdom to save Islam.
Translation - We will get what we want from the Americans (money & weapons) and then stab them in the back when it is convinient.
This website strives to identify the increasing menace of terrorism that uses fanatical religious views to pursue its own evil agenda. This site is not here to put down or blame any one religion; it instead points out groups and countries (Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and China) that make terrorism their sole aim. As Abdullah Obaid, head of the World Muslim League recently said, "We should not use religion for purposes which contradict religion itself" (1).
This website tries to inform the reader of terrorist atrocities that are eminating from the Pakistan-Afganistan region. For decades, the term 'freedom fighter' has been used by various terrorist organizations. This school of thought has now become quite ridiculous and the term has been outstripped of any legitimacy it might have carried at some point. Those who perpetrate terror on innocent people should be identified as what they truly are; terrorists. Any objective person should be able to make this conclusion. Islamofascism is creeping upon us - the Wahabbi brand funded by Saudi Arabia, applied and masterminded in Pakistan.
The Rise in Terrorism (from Pakistan, Afghanistan and the Middle-East)The World Trade Center (1) and Oklahoma City bombings marked two very sad events in American history. Apart from these two events, the United States and most of the West has not seen many large scale terrorist attacks while the rest of the world has been wallowing in the wake of increased terrorist activities. Russia, India, Indonesia, Israel, Philipines, Serbia, and much of Central Asia is constantly under the brow of terrorism. As the world looks to bring peace to the middle-east region, terrorist elements have moved to other areas to spread their menace. South-Central Asia and parts of Africa are the new hotbeds of terrorism in the 21st century.
One can trace the roots of many current terrorist organizations to the American support of the 'mujahideen' ("holy warriors") in Afganistan. Money and publicity ensured that the mujahideen were adequately equipped, tranined by Pakistan's ISI and given a cinderella image of freedom fighters. After the Soviet withdrawl, the CIA had little use for these fighters and left the dangereously armed religious fanatics to find their own fight. Though this whole act was just a political move to counter the Soviet invasion of Afganistan, the 'blowback' is yet to be fully experienced around the world.
The Soviet withdrawl from Afganistan was promplty followed by start of violence in the Kashmir (2) valley in India. Kashmir, an integral part of India was the only muslim majority state in the union and seperatist elements supported by Pakistan and terrorist elements in Afganistan took the task of putting their 'expertise' to use. Their new challenge was the Indian people in Kashmir, more precisely the minority Hindus, Bhuddists, and Sikhs who had lived peacefully along side the Muslims for ages. With active help from Pakistan in training, money, weapons and bases; the violence in Kashmir has claimed over 30,000 casualties in a little over a decade and continues to ravage the once peaceful and serene land.
Coming out of the shadows of the Afgan conflict were the Taliban ("Knowledge Seekers"). The west first felt the wrath of their Islamic fundamentalism in Somalia in December 1992. The gruesome image of dead, naked US Army Rangers from downed Black Hawk helicopters being dragged was seen by millions, but few knew of the soldiers who had their throats slit. It was a snowy evening in Febuary of 1993 when a truck bomb blasted through the basement of the World Trade Center in New York City. The FBI uncovered leads in Detroit, London, Pakistan and Afganistan; finally apprehending the mastermind Ramzi Yousef in Pakistan. Bombings of American barracks in Riyadh (1995 - 5 killed) and Dhahran (1996 - 19 killed) followed by the recent embassy bombings in Tanzania and Kenya led to hundreds of casualties. The only American response was a few Tommahawk strikes into Afganistan that killed a few terrorist trainees. There has been no desire to reach to the root of the problem by identifying the countries actively supporting terrorism, just lobbing a few thousand pounds of high explosives into the barren badlands.
