So there it goes again. By going through all the comments made by people at different Blogs, I am able to conclude the following:
- Generally people have rejected the idea that Taliban are behind this attack as hinted by Interior Minister.
- Majority of people sees an Indian link in this attack.
- Quite a few also blame Salman Taseer and Zardari to mastermind the attack to stop Nawaz Sharif and lawyers movement.
After surfing through the reports of the incident, there are few things which are noticeable.
- Attackers never really wanted to hurt Sri Lankan team a lot. Otherwise they could have adopted to stop the bus first and then attack it.
- After 30 minutes of firing, no attacker out of 12 was arrested, hurt or killed. All escaped safely.
- There was a deliberate effort to make incident look similar to Mumbai attacks.
- Salman Taseer, Altaf Hussain and Nazir Naji are claiming that its the same people who attacked Mumbai. Quite a co-incidence in similarity of statements.
Now few very approprite comments:
from New York Times
Mr. Rehman said the gunmen were in their early 20s and were bearded. He described them as resembling Pathans, an ethnic group that dominates North West Frontier Province and tribal areas, an apparent suggestion that assailants were Taliban militants from the tribal areas.
There are three most likely scenarios. They have more or less already been presented by various people.
1. RAW i.e. the Indians are behind this heinous act of terrorism. Execution could be carried out by many groups. It could be MQM terrorists, afghans for sale or other Pakistanis for sale.
2. PPP & MQM could also be partners in crime. Why? Obviously to distract the Long march, dharna and illegal toppling of Punjab government.
3. The allied gang in collaboration with India. Aim: To sabotage the SWAT peace efforts.
Ansar Abbasi just claimed that he has an intelligence report that was sent by Agencies to Sec interior kamal shah, interior sec Punjan, IG Punjab, and CM Punjab on Jan 20 that RAW is planning attack on Sri Lnakan team and it may be occur on the way between hotel and stadium. After this letter, CM Mian Shahbaz took strict action during last visit of Lankan team for one-day series BUT after removal of CM, there happened big security laps and this event happened.
After compiling all comments, facts and reports, we can safely conclude that attack has support of government machinery. What benefits they get out of this situation.
1. Stop Nawaz Sharif and Lawyers movement.
2. Destabilize Pakistan in almost every aspect.
3. Stop Islamic Law movement by blaming Taliban for it.
To ensure a diversion, they tried to frame India for it, so that public is satisfied. But they would not go after India to make it unhappy, thats for sure. Indian and other agencies can be part of all arrangement.
There is a huge consensus that Zardari, Taseer, Rehman Malik, Sherry Rehman, Altaf Hussain, journalists like Naji and Abbas Ather and Taliban are working together to break this country. One of the comments suggested and can be true:
Salman Taseer MI6 + Rahman Malik (CIA) + Zardari beghairat (CIA+zionist+RAW) = Breaker and broker of Pakistan
