By General Mirza Aslam Beg STAFF WRITER

Foreword by Gordon Duff Senior Editor

General Beg, former Chief of Staff, Army of Pakistan, a foremost expert on military and political strategy in the Iran/Afghanistan/Pakistan region, is critical of US policy as unrealistic, ignoring flexibility of key players like Iran.  Only thru understanding how divergent our views are from those of informed moderate voices of our closest allies can we prepare to move toward lasting peace. Ed.

The tragic suicide attack in the Seestan Province of Iran, causing the death of about 50 Pasdarans, including their senior commanders, indeed is deplorable…


This is not for the first time that such act of terrorism has taken place inside Iran, using Pakistani soil.  As a matter of fact, since 1980, the terrorist group, called Fidaeen-e-Khalk have been operating against Iran.

After occupation of Afghanistan in 2001, CIA jointed hands with the Indian spy network in Afghanistan, and formed the anti-Iran terrorist organization called Jindullah and used it against Iran. 

Two years back, I wrote a detailed article titled: “Global Conspiracies against Pakistan” about the Indo-US espionage activities against all the neighbours of Afghanistan.

About Jindullah and their terror operations in Iran, I said:  “The forward bases at Herat and Farah (in Afghanistan) are manned by RAW, CIA, MI-6 and Mossad for subversive activities inside Iran. Jointly operating from inside Pakistan, from the anchorages of Kot Kalamat, and Jiwani, (facility granted for war in Afghanistan) the saboteurs are heli-lifted to Mand (a Pakistani town, close to Iranian border) to undertake terrorist actions inside Iran.” 

General Musharraf quite deliberately ignored my revelations and the acts against our brotherly neighbour – Iran. But the indifference of the present government is rather shocking. To create a wedge between Iran and Pakistan is the objective of such subversive acts, which is much too dangerous a game. 

Pakistan cannot afford to ignore it. It is no less than the magnitude of insult the nation faced through the passing of the KLB which has ominous consequences for Pakistan. It is time now for the Pakistan government to eliminate such activities taking place from our soil.

The crimes Jindullah commit are attributed to Pakistan as if Pakistan were the culprit in supporting terrorist activities inside Iran, which is a blatant lie.

The so called flag bearers of international norms of justice and fair play are involved in “Terrorism through consensus.” And they are not even ashamed of putting this clause in the Kerry-Lugar Bill: “Prevent attacks into neighbouring countries. Eliminate terrorist threats and close safe havens in Pakistan, requires the development of a comprehensive plan that utilizes all elements of national power, including coordination and cooperation with other concerned governments and that it is critical to Pakistan’s long-term prosperity and security, to strengthen regional relationships among India, Pakistan and Afghanistan.” Iran has been purportedly left-out.!!
