ISLAMABAD: Defence analyst and Chairman Senate Standing Committee on Defence Production Lt. Gen (Retd) Abdul Qayyum said Friday that red-handed catch and subsequent confessional statement of RAW’s high-profile spy Kulbhushan Yadav had exposed India’s ugly face before the international community.
Earlier, he said, India had been committing the state terrorism in the Occupied Kashmir but now it attempted to penetrate into Pakistan with the same agenda, which the law enforcement agencies (LEAs) had foiled effectively.
“India has been blaming Pakistan for sponsoring non-state actors, but Pakistan has exposed Indian state terrorism by arresting its agent,” he said.
The RAW agent’s main goal was to disrupt development of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), attack the Gwadar Deep Sea Port, ships and installation of the Pakistan Navy, for which he trained the Baloch separatists in Mumbai to use speed boats to carry out terrorist activity.
Yadav, a serving officer of Indian Navy apprehended by LEAs on March 3 while infiltrating into Pakistan from the Saravan border area of Balochistan with Iran, had confessed in a video statement to foment terrorism in Balochistan and Karachi.
Abdul Qayyum said the capture of agent had proved that India had been using soil of neighbouring countries to carry out subversive activities in Pakistan to achieve its nefarious desires.
He said Pakistan was conveying to the neighbouring countries that India was operating to destabilize Pakistan in first part of its a well thought-out conspiracy, after which it would move towards them.
He urged Muslim countries to exhibit more unity and responsibility to fail ulterior motives of India.
He said the confessional statement and solid evidences of India’s involvement in anti-state activities in Pakistan was being shared at all appropriate forums including the United Nations.
Qayyum said there was no doubt about Indian spy agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW)’s involvement in the activities to destabilize Pakistan and several terror attacks including on Kamra airbase, Mehran airbase and the General Headquarters Rawalpindi.
Answering a question, he said there was no sectarian issue in Pakistan, but it was India which was fanning sectarianism, especially in Balochistan under a well thought-out conspiracy.
He appreciated Pakistan’s intelligence agencies particularly Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) for arresting the Indian Navy’s high-ranking officer working for RAW, adding that there was no precedent in the world that such a high-profile officer would have been found involved in the spying activities and was caught red-handed.
