An unidentified Pakistani expat in Malaysia confronted Indian protesters in front of the Pakistan High Commission in Kuala Lumpur earlier this week, challenging the gathering, all of whom had masked their faces, to reveal their true identities to the public.
In a video that has gathered traction on social media, the Pakistani expat can be seen asking the Indians about the motivations behind their protest, leading to a heated exchange of words that ultimately results in the Indians walking off.
“So here are paid Indians goons, paid by the Indian embassy, RAW agents, look at their faces,” the man says on camera, showing that the protesters were all wearing masks to hide their identities, insinuating that they were actually Indian diplomats.
‘I will call the police, how dare you’
“Pakistan is a terrorist,” one of the protesters says to the Pakistani man in the video, before quickly running away after realizing that inciting hatred against a whole peoples is a punishable offence in the country, something the Pakistani man seems to be aware of.
“I will call the police. Pakistan is not a terrorist. RAW is a terrorist. Show your faces. I am showing my face, you show your faces,” the Pakistani says to the Indians, who are now doubling their pace, walking away from the protest and the camera.
The Pakistani expat can be seen trying in vain to persuade the Indians to reveal their identities or answer him back. However, no answer is forthcoming, and the Indian protesters, apparently afraid of confronting the Pakistani, disperse.
Pakistan presents India terror dossier
Tensions between Pakistan and India have increased ever since Pakistan released a damning dossier earlier this month detailing the extent and scope of Indian terrorist activities against Pakistan from foreign soil.
The Foreign Office issued a dossier on Indian support to terror outfits across Pakistan on November 14. The dossier provided details of several attacks, names of terror outfits and commanders receiving funding and directions from Indian intelligence operatives.
A joint presser by Pakistan’s Foreign Minister, Shah Mahmood Qureshi and DG ISPR, Gen. Iftikhar Babar, accused Indian PM Narendra Modi of directly running a covert cell against CPEC projects in Pakistan.
This Anti-CPEC cell in the office of Indian PM was created in 2015, with an initial funding of US $500 million (Rs. 80 billion). This cell, operating from Pakistan’s neighbouring countries, has spent around US $60 million in creating a force of 700 guerrillas to target CPEC.
Attacks on Pearl Continental Hotel, Gawadar, Karachi Stock Exchange and other sites were coordinated by this cell directly managed from the office of Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi. A brief printed dossier was shared with media.
In the presser, FM Qureshi repeatedly mentioned terror plots in Baluchistan, Karachi, erstwhile FATA (now KP), AJK and GB. DG ISPR said that Pakistan has irrefutable intelligence of Indian plans to orchestrate terror attacks in Pakistani cities.
Audiotapes, Altaf Hussain, and RAW
Joint presser gave facts and information that must have been collected over several months if not years. Much relevant information was about Karachi and how MQM under Alftaf Hussain kept receiving funding from the Indian intelligence agency, RAW.
Presser pointed out that intelligence work is difficult and not every transaction can be traced. However it referred to financial transactions about which solid evidence now exists about amounts, routes and dates.
For instance MQM Altaf Hussain was being financed, at one point, through two Indian companies (JVGT and Paras Jewellery) via Britain and received at least US $3.23 million through this route alone. (more than £ 2.45 million, sterlings)
During Joint Press Conference, audio tapes of conversations between terror outfits (both religious and ethnic sub-nationalists) and Indian agency operatives were played. Not only this, but intercepted written communications in Dari and English was displayed.
In one instance a video tutorial sent by an Indian agency operative to a terrorist inside Pakistan was played. Video tutorial had explained step by step how to use a walkie-talkie to blow up an IED.
Presser informed how Indian agencies had been directing terrorists for key assassinations of political, religious and civic leadership and offering financial rewards for successful execution of assassinations, suicide bombings and blowing up IED.
Rewards for bombings, suicide attacks
A Rs. 10 million reward was usually settled for suicide bombings and targeted suicides. Lesser financial rewards like Rs. 1 million was offered for simply blowing up an IED. Much of that corresponded with the strategic thinking Ajit Doval had lectured about before becoming the NSA in 2014.
Many wonder why such information was not released earlier – especially after the arrest of key RAW agent, Commander Kulbhashan Jhadav, in early 2016. Others point out that the then PM, Nawaz Sharif had not permitted this.
When Jhadav was arrested, PM Nawaz Sharif had not even allowed the then Interior Minister, Chaudhry Nisar, to sit with the DG ISPR for a press briefing. Today’s briefing was attended mostly by Pakistani media.
But Foreign Minister informed that “Dossier” titled, “Indian Efforts to Destabilise Pakistan” has been shared with the UN and the P-5 countries that means the US, Russia, China, UK and France.
