‘Threat’ to Maulana and ‘Azadi March’: Punjab Issues Terror Alert

Pakistan seeks ‘continuity in democracy’ while espousing ‘enduring stability’ in the region. ‘These make the twin-wheeler going forward amid diversity it always had,” said an insider.

DESPARDES — India’s RAW (Research and Analysis Wing) or the National Directorate of Security (NDS) of Afghanistan can attack Maulana Fazlur Rehman led ‘Azadi March’ targeting him, reports The News.

Citing an alert issued by the province’s Home Department titled “Threat Perception”, it says the Indian RAW and the Afghan NDS want to target religio-politician Maulana Fazlur Rehman in the near future. “For this purpose, they are making contacts with target-killing groups in Pakistan and offering $1 million for assassinating the Maulana.

A huge amount of money was provided by Hizb-e-Islami Afghanistan (HIA) for the task, says the intel. Terrorists backed by the HIA have planned to target the JUI-F Azadi March, it said.

Reportedly, a suicide jacket for the purpose has been dispatched via Chaman border.

“The Islamic State Khorasan Province (ISKP) prompted by the HIA is also planning to launch a terrorist attack during the Azadi March. The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has also planned to target the march”.

According to the report, HIA has tasked terrorists with exploiting the security and political situation in the country as it rationalizes the chill in relationship with India on its east and the ‘break’ in US-Taliban talks on the west.

Maulana’s caravan will reach Islamabad on Thursday for what his party’s leadership says will be a show of strength against Khan-led government.

The government and Maulana’s team have signed an agreement to let the sit-in at Peshawar Morr and will not enter into the capital’s Red-Zone. “Peaceful protest was constitutional right of every political party in democratic set up,” said Minister for Education and Professional Training Shafqat Mehmood on Tuesday.

If the JUI-F would not follow the agreement then actions would be taken against it as per law, the minister said.
