The berserk jehadis of Pakistan
On Wednesday the May 13, a bus which was carrying a large number of Shia Muslim worshippers to their place of worship in Karachi was followed by eight Sunni Muslim Jehadis of the Pakistani terror organisation Jindullah owing allegiance to the new Iraqi Caliphate ISIS on motorcycles.
They were dressed in Pakistani police uniform. They way laid the bus when it reached an isolated spot and with point blank range shot 26 males, 16 females and 3 children, in all 45 unarmed worshippers. All of them were shot at on their heads or chests. This killing of innocent women and children is their kind of jehad.

Needless to say this problem is the creation of the Pakistani Army and their intelligence agency ISI. They have till now followed the policy of good jehadis and the bad jehadis. Good jehadis are those like Lashker-e-Toiba and Jaish-e-Mohammad operating against India on Pakistani behest and Haqqani network and Afghan Taliban operating against American and NATO troops in Afghanistan again on Pakistani Army-Intelligence set up help.

These good jehadis are the Pakistani army strategic assets who fight for Pakistani strategic interests sparing the Pakistani Army with this life and death game while Pakistan remains on denial mode. The bad jehadis are the Tehrik-e-Pakistan Taliban (TTP) who wants to usurp power in Pakistan and intends to turn it into a hardliner Sharia following country. They are being supported by groups like Jindullah affiliated to the ISIS.

Since last June Pakistani Army has launched an all out operation against the TPP in North Waziristan tribal area of Pakistan. In this operation Pakistani Army is using tanks, heavy artillery, helicopter gunships and F-16 Jet fighters against their own people. They claim to have killed about 2000 jehadis of TPP while more than a million people have been displaced. All this has made Pakistan a most unsafe place to live in.

Now with this killing of Shia Muslims who are a major minority in Pakistan tempers is further going to rise between Iran backed Shias and Saudi Arabia backed Sunnis fighting in Yemen, Syria and Iraq. Pakistan is going to land up in further trouble if their Army-Intelligence set up does not do a course correction and start treating all jihadists as terrorists. This possibility however looks very remote.

India must take a note of it and ensure that this Shia-Sunni Conflict does not spill over to India. The major world powers including China, the all weather friend of Pakistan must ride heavy upon Pakistani army making them act against the so called good jehadis also.
