of the visit of some renowned Pakistani Pakhtun
leaders to Afghan capital apparently was to
participate in a national jirga, the agenda of
which was to create better understanding among
Pakistani and Afghan tribes living on both sides
of the Pak-Afghan border.
The jirga was of the
view that once such an understanding was created,
it could be used to end the on-going civil war and
to strengthen the internal security. However,
investigations carried out by The Daily Mail have
revealed that the real motive behind this meeting
was entirely something different, as its agenda
has been kept top secret.
It has emerged, after
The Daily Mail’s investigations, that all those
who take final decisions or are involved in the
making of Afghanistan’s national security matters
enjoy a sound backing of India. A vast majority of
the members of today’s all-important
Majlis-e-Nizaar, including Marshal Faheem, Yousas
Qanooni, Rangeen Darfar and other noted people,
were sitting in New Delhi during the days of
foreign occupancy of Afghanistan. In 2004, they
also held an important meeting in New Delhi. In
that meeting, Mr Rangeen Darfar, who was not
Afghan foreign minister but was thought to be an
icon as far as Afghanistan’s national security is
concerned, was invited as a special guest speaker.
It was Mr Rangeen who helped chalk out a plant
at the Delhi meeting. This plan is called the
“Darfar Plan” on Afghanistan, the DM
investigations have further revealed.
the Darfar Plan, the Delhi meeting ‘leader’ Mr
Rangeen Darfar urged the Indian leadership to help
Kabul post back the alleged Pakistani proxy war
launched inside Afghanistan. This, Mr Darfar had
told Delhi, should be done at all costs. The
Darfar Plan also sought the establishment of the
infamous Jablul Siraj spying network, which Mr
Darfar ultimately succeeded in setting up.
Under this new anti-Pakistan spying system, a
vast network of Indian consulates was to come up
along the Pak-Afghan border. The chief objective
of these consulates was to woo the angry and
anti-Islamabad elements residing in Pakistan’s
tribal areas to indulge in terror activities in
order to destabilise Pakistan. Later on, young and
jobless Baloch youths were also included in the
set of designs of the Indian consulates. The
youths from Balochistan were given commando
training to launch terror activities in Pakistan.
The trio of Indian, Afghan and Israeli
intelligence agencies of RAW, Khaad and Mosad was
adeptly helping these consulates to achieve their
purpose. The unending terror activities, started
by the elements amply backed and assisted by the
aforesaid Indian consulates, are still continuing
in Pakistan, especially in its tribal areas.
The Mail investigations further indicate that
the fresh joint efforts of the Afghan and Indian
establishments are now targeted at Kabul
government’s fledgling bid to launch a
rapprochement endeavour with the Haqqani group of
the Taliban. This new joint venture especially
takes care of the erstwhile Afghan leader Mullah
Omar. The Haqqani group, it may be noted, is the
backbone of Mullah Omar’s strength.
Indo-Afghan plan is keenly looking at the US
demand for the Kabul leadership to hold meaningful
dialogues with the Taliban to secure a lasting
peace in Afghanistan, especially for the immediate
time period when the United States leaves the
country in July 2011. According to The Daily Mail
probe, there is another goal the Indo-Afghan nexus
wants to achieve: Pakistan should not get any
benefits from the proposed US withdrawal.
achieve the second and important goal, the two
establishments (Kabul and Delhi) and their
intelligence agencies have chalked out yet another
anti-Islamabad plan under which Kabul and Delhi
are trying their best to keep the leadership of
Pakistan’s Pakhtuns in their hands.
with fresh instructions from Kabul and New Delhi,
the respective intelligence agencies of the two
countries called Pakistan’s Asfandyar Wali,
Mehmood Achakzai and Aftab Sherpao to Afghanistan.
The secret agenda behind the Kabul call is,
according to the DM probe, to form a new party
based on the idea of Pukhtun nationalism.
Ostensibly, it seeks to unite Pakistan’s Pakhtuns
from Chitral to Bolan. But, according to the
probe, the mission of the meeting in Kabul and its
follow-up is that the Pakistani Pukhtuns should be
given in Kabul’s hands as a bargain chip to be
used against Islamabad at any given stage. The DM
investigations also see the new Indo-Afghan act as
a bid to counter Taliban’s expanding political
influence in Afghanistan. It also sees this as an
act to keep Pakistani establishment under constant
But one thing the Afghan and Indian
establishments have forgotten is that the type of
the Pukhtun leadership they have selected from
Pakistan has long lost their appeal, if they had
any, in the eyes of the general Pukhtuns. Besides,
the Pukhtun nationalism card they might be
thinking of using against Islamabad has not only
drowned in the River Sindh during the recent
floods but also has sunk into the Arabian Sea.
And, the late Bacha Khan’s ‘thoughtful’ philosophy
is about to be swallowed by a powerful vortex –
also of the Arabian Sea!
