ISIS in Pakistan: Is Pakistan ready to face another monster?

 

 

Security forces on Sunday said they had killed around a dozen Islamic State militants in a three-day raid prompted by intelligence reports that the group were holding two recently kidnapped Chinese nationals.

 

The operation took place in Mastung district of Balochistan and targeted the hideout cave of a group of IS commanders, a senior security official said.

 

 

“Some 12-13 IS commanders have been killed after intense gun-battles and the area was cleared late Saturday,” he said, but added that the Chinese pair were not recovered from the scene despite the presence of the vehicle used in their kidnapping nearby.

 

 

Security forces also seized six suicide jackets, a cache of ammunition, explosives, detonators, solar panels and food rations, a second security official said, adding the cave was a base used by IS to plan attacks across the country.

 

The ISIS threat cannot be undermined in Pakistan as well as it has claimed the responsibility of most of the recent terror attacks in Pakistan, especially in Balochistan.

 

Lal Masjid ‘burqa cleric’ Maulvi Abdul Aziz had pledged allegiance to ISIS in 2004 while the bus attack in Safoora Goth in May, 2015 was also claimed by ISIS. Recently, the responsibility of the attack outside Quetta’sCivil Hospital on 8 August that took more than 70 lives was claimed by a militant faction of Taliban, Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, that has pledged allegiance to the ISIS.

 

 

 ISIS also took the credit of the attack on Police Training Centre, Quetta on 24 October killing 61 cadets, and suicide blast at Shah Norani Shrine in Khuzdar District of Balochistan on 12 November killing at least 52 people, which is certainly an eye-opener for the Pakistani civil-military leadership that seems to be in a state of denial regarding the presence of ISIS in the country.

 

Last year in January, ISIS announced its organisation in Afghanistan-Pakistan region named as Khorasan province while the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) has, time and again, arrested suspects belonging to this militant organisation. The CTD on Thursday claimed to have smashed an eight-member cell of ISIS in Lahore.

 

 

Earlier, the security forces on 28 August claimed to have arrested six suspected militants, including an ISIS leader from Nushki area of Balochistan. According to official data, at least 44 members of the militant outfit have been arrested from different cities of Punjab, including those who had attacked some media houses in Faisalabad, Lahore and Sargodha.

 

It is the need of the hour that the civilian and military leadership of the country come out of denial mode and realise the gravity of the issue.
