The former Joint Director IB, Maloy Krishna Dhar In an article “Western Disturbances And Subcontinental Tsunami” warns that “……. a huge Western Disturbance, you can say a severe tectonic disturbance, is taking place at India’s western flank and other flanks of our country over which discerning security, intelligence and military bodies cannot sleep in political Nirvana. The tsunami waves of Jihadist advances have been released by the disturbances in Afghanistan and Pakistan. It is a matter of time these waves hit India devastatingly, with unthinkable consequences.”
He writes “The main tectonic plates that are grinding the geopolitical and geostrategic strata in Afghanistan and Pakistan are the Taliban Classic ; Neo-Taliban; al Qaeda; Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Indian, Diaspora; Franchised Jihadi forces belonging to Africa, South East Asia and European countries; The Inter Services Intelligence of Pakistan, and The Directorate General of Forces Intelligence of Bangladesh.”
Dhar opines that the fidayeen attack on Indian Embassy at Kabul, Afghanistan, has been described by various analysts as a turning point in India’s fight against Jihad International, in collaboration with the US headed global coalition. He also revels that its also speculated that the attackers could belong to Baitullah Mehsud of Neo-Taliban group working in tandem with al Qaeda and other Neo-Taliban groups.
Dhar also speaks about a new phenomenon in many subcontinental Islamicists, who, have resumed thinking in terms of recapturing the TAJ-E-HIND, which they say, rightfully belonged to them and the British and Hindus conspired to snatch away the crown of Hindoostan.
On Neo-Talibanism he writes is a mix of old Afghan mujahideen stalwarts like Haqqani and new incarnations like Baitullah Mehsud etc. Haqqani had set up strings of madrasas in North Waziristan.
Citing some Pakistani journalist who think that these neo Taliban terrorist will be routed into India by the Pakistans notorias intelligence agency, the ISI; Dhar writes that India has a vital stake in ensuring a stable democratic Pakistan under Western tutelage.
On Chinese interest in Afghanistan, Dhar writes “China also wants India out of Afghanistan as its vast land and sea-route interests in Pakistan are essential for its increasing presence in the Persian Gulf area.”
