Former Pakistani Taliban spokesperson Ehsanullah Ehsan has ordered that Pakistan Army and the spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) took the help of several terror groups to target Indian and US forces.
Referring to his conference with TTP leaders Hakimullah Mehsud, Maulana Wali-ur-Rehman Mehsud and Azam Tariq (Tariq is a senior TTP leader, who was a presenter of the group before Ehsanullah was made the spokesperson), Ehsan wrote in his artefact published in Sunday Guardian: “Maulana Wali-ur-Rehman took a letter out of the cover and gave it to me and told me to read it. I opened the letter and read it aloud. After accomplishing, Maulana Wali-ur-Rehman said to me, ‘You must have seen why you were called in an urgent for this meeting.’ I smiled and said, ‘Yes, I know’.”
“The letter I read out was written by the DG ISI, General Shuja Pasha to Maulana Wali-ur-Rehman Mehsud,” he wrote. “He wrote that we should work simultaneously to eliminate the disputes between the Pakistan army and the TTP and work together to drive the great opponent US (America) and NATO out of Afghanistan,” Ehsan said.
Ehsan further said: “General Pasha had also written that if TTP known the demands, the TTP would not just be able to create its abilities in Waziristan but the entire Pakistan would be exposed for the TTP and that the squad of TTP and their children would be able to work in this nation by getting education from educational associations in Islamabad and Peshawar.
” General Shuja Pasha had more confirmed that if Wali-ur-Rehman Mehsud were able to prove his organization, he would be considered as a hero in the history of Pakistan, Ehsan wrote as he reminisced the meeting. Pasha had further stated that the army would give him everything which will be beyond his creativity and desire, he said.
“I asked Maulana Wali-ur-Rehman which Naseer-ud-Din he was talking about. To which he replied that he was mentioning to Dr Naseeruddin Haqqani, the son of Jalaluddin Haqqani, the leading head of the Afghan Taliban and the first head of the Haqqani network,” Ehsan said.
In this complete letter, General Shuja Pasha had continually referred to the Indian “occupation” of and “atrocities” in Kashmir,” the Taliban leader wrote.
He had written to Maulana Wali-ur-Rehman Sahib declaring that his forefathers had struggled many wars for the independence of Kashmir and had made many victims because they were true and patriotic Pakistanis, Ehsan said.
“He, in the letter, had added that he should also join the Pakistan military in the ‘Ghazwa e Hind’ war versus India, because the war against India is a real and just jihad alongside the real infidels and polytheists,” Ehsan said.
Ehsan wrote in his article: “He also mentioned some Pakistan-backed organizations Lashker-e-Tayyaba and Jaish-e-Mohammad who were battling against India in Kashmir and said that despite all the global pressure, Pakistan army was serving them because they were fighting for Pakistan. General Pasha had beyond stated that if the TTP battled for the interests of Pakistan, we (ISI) would endorse them on every front.”
Ehsan said: “I have witnessed loads of such incidents in which the Pakistani military and intelligence agencies have made several proposals and allowances to all extremist groups, including the Taliban, to use them as their proxies.”
Earlier this year, Ehsan had run away from a safe house controlled by the Pakistan Army.
