Nanga Parbath killings; Some Questions?

By captainjohann • Jul 1st, 2013 • Category: Lead Story, Politics, Worth A Second Look • 4 Comments

When the initial word came that 10 Mountaineers were killed and immediately owned by Jundoallah and later by TTP, it looked like any other terrorist attack in revenge for their deputy emir’s killing.

But what evinced my interest was also the Immediate statement by Prof Hafeez Saeed of JUD/LET who is guided by General Hamid gul and PTI that it is the handiwork of Indian Intelligence agencies especially after the recent grant of nearly rupees 62 million to JUD which is under the indirect control of JUD after its take over by Punjab government but still run by Prof Hafeez.

The inital news reports of main media suggested that it was another terrorist attack aimed at Pakistan tourist industry by enemy forces and also Pakistan/china friendship.Even BBC gave the view that the attack took place in a base camp near Fairley Meadows.

But Mr.Angad of PATO was the first one to raise some disturbing questions.He said correctly that the attack has taken place at west face of Nanga Parbhat called Diamer face. He also gave some interesting theory that the attackers cannot escape if immediate helicopter and ground forces recce is organised at the trek back to civilization will take at-least 18 hours of trek in grueling mountains.

He also surmised that the if they are not traced trekking back then these guys have to be found in local villages near Diamer only and they should have been here long before.

Some western mountaineering sites suggested that the attackers needed local help to get AK 47s and local police uniforms. They also suggested that the attackers have to spend some time in Diamer to get acclimatized for this operation.

The victims where mainly from Ukraine,china,slovakia and one Nepali sherpa and a Pakistani cook.the Ukraine team included a US citizen of Chinese origin named Hong Lu chin whom seemed to be target for the equipment he carried.That an American of Chinese origin was part of the Ukraine team was never carried by the media till now though the Attackers specifically searched for him and knew his presence in the team.

Now that the 15 attackers were arrested by the able work of Local police and Diamer Jirga, The following questions rise Why Junduallah (which was created by Dick cheney along with General Musharaff to infiltrate and kill Iranians) is now located in this area and calling itslef JundulUl-Hifza as per Junduallah spokesman? They said they killed the mountaineers in revenge for killing of Osama bin Laden. Then TTP came out that they have carried out the strike to avenge the death of their Deputy emir in a drone strike. Of course Prof hafeez saeed had his own take. The common thread is some how protect these 15 militants being caught as they are all located in Diamer itself and they have carried out killings of Shias earlier and may be more attacks from this remote base. The most important member seem to be one Majeed who belongs to Gilas. 3 are from Kohistan and 2 from Manshera while the majority 10 are from diamer itself.

There was this interesting suggestion from PATO (Pakistan alpine tourists operators) that a delegation from their organisation should go to Doha and ask the Taliban office there what was the purpose of this strike by organisations affiliated to it which is actually killed the Alpine adventure tourism of Pakistan and also Pakistan’s friendship with China which is the only country which is supplying arms and diplomatic support to Pakistan. Hope they carry out this trip to Doha and find the answers.

  1. You say that 15 attackers were arrested? How come and where? I hear only one was arrested.

  2. Hi Kashif,
    You are correct. The following are the names of Terrorists 1.Shafi Ullah, 2Khastha Khan, 3.Aziz ullah,4. Mehsudul Haq, 5.Hazmat Umar 6.Majeed 7. Quari Ranjegat 8.Sana ullah 9.Malik Wajat 10. Hidayat Shah. These are the 10 guys from Daimer. By mistake I assumed that they were arrested as their names were given.. thanks for the correction.

  3. Capt
    you can have some questions in your mind but we want clear reply from those who are responsible of security of this land and its tourists.This area is under control of Pakistani army and have scattered base camps.Alpine club mostly comprise by retd army officers takes funds from civilian govt but report its activities to Pakistani agencies working actively in these areas . .So simple to charge those who have full authority to control the movment of people in this area of GB.Pakistan last minister of tourism was Maulana Atta-ur-Rehman of JUI F a a brother of Maulana diesel. Both brothers have expertise of producing world class terrorist in Pakistan for expanding Muslim ummah in their ways.This is way we spread terrorism from tourism industry in our all fields.So nothing to surprise not think deeply .We sowed terrorism and reaping it in same form.

  4. One needs to ask who would benefit the most from such a horrendous act? Only 2 countries come to mind, India or Russia. The Pakistan government needs to interrogate these foreign killers with truth serum and nothing less. Too many outsiders are entering Pakistan and trying to destroy it from within, while making it appear as if these murders are the work of locals.The Pakistan government needs to take a heavy handed attitude to such assassins and stop approaching these evildoers as if they’re diplomats. All means necessary should be utilized in extracting the TRUTH, and far more important - which country is behind this and thousands of such attacks targeting innocents throughout Pakistan in order to destabilize the country.
