Breakaway Islamic rebels may have carried out the New Delhi bombings in an attempt to embarrass their nemesis President Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan, security sources and analysts said. But the analysts and security officials said the attacks did not bear the hallmarks of any Kashmiri groups. Leading Kashmiri extremists -- who usually claim responsibility for their attacks -- also denied any role.Ok, just who are these sources and analysts?
"Pakistan has contained most of the militant groups based in the country, but some of the extremists and rogue elements among them can still pursue their narrow ideological agenda," analyst Hasan Askari told AFP.Ah. Just as we speak, a U.S. Chinook aid helicopter has been attacked with RPG fire in Pakistan-controlled Kashmir and a suicide car bombing has taken place in Jammu and Kashmir.
The biggest Kashmiri guerrilla group, Hizbul Mujahideen, denied its involvement but said the attacks could be a reaction to alleged atrocities by Indian forces in its part of Kashmir.
"We condemn the attacks in New Delhi," said the organisation's leader, Syed Salahuddin. "It is not the policy of Mujahideen to kill innocent civilians. All Mujahideen operate under a code of conduct and we never allow such killings."
An associate of Lashkar-e-Taiba -- which an Indian police official said was linked to the group which claimed responsibility for the attacks in New Delhi -- denied any links to the attack.
"Lashkar had nothing to do with the attacks on civilians. This is not the group's policy," he told AFP, speaking by telephone from an undisclosed location.
So, AFP becomes a terror apologist and seems to accept the statements by these pigs at face value despite the lack of any evidence to prove their facts. For your information, there have been several attacks by L-e-T pigs against civilian targets as documented by SATP. Yet, AFP prints their lies without giving a counter-point.
Another possibility put forward by Pakistani officials was that the bombings were by homegrown Hindu extremists angry at the decision to open the border in quake-hit Kashmir.
"Some Hindu extremist radical groups in India who were opposed to making any peace moves with Pakistan could be involved," another security official said.
Now this is the bombshell which AFP throwns. There have been no prior incidence of such groups and still AFP has to swallow such gibberish from unknown official hell-bent on denying the Pakistani military establishment's past and present association with the jihadi groups.
