According to The Senate Foreign Relations Committee (July 2004 Hearings), Pakistan's
Military intelligence has played a key role in developing the Islamic terror network
with financial assistance provided by Saudi Arabia. (Committee on Senate Foreign
Relations, Hearings, July 14, 2004). More recently, The Nixon Center (July 2005)
has confirmed that the ISI still supports the main Kashmiri Islamic groups including
Lashkar-e-Tiaba and Jaish-e-Muhammad.
Recent Indian Press reports provide concrete evidence and details regarding
the ISI's links to Lashkar e Taiba, which is suspected of having played a key
role in the foiled UK terror plot:. Reports suggest that LeT operational commander
had meetings with ISI's top brass:
"The interrogation of two Laskhar- e-Taiba militants arrested here last
week [Delhi] has brought to light "direct links" between Pakistani
intelligence agency ISI and the terror outfit, strengthening India's case
that Islamabad was actively supporting terrorist activities in the country.
One of the arrested militants Abu Anaz has revealed that he was the body
guard of Lashkar second-in-command Zaki-ur- Rehman and given detailed description
about functioning of the terror outfit and the monthly meetings that take
place between Pakistan Army officials and LeT leaders.
"Zakir-ur-Rehman and some others of LeT used to meet Pakistani Army's
Major Wajahat, Brigadier Riaz and Brigadier Haji every month in Muzaffarabad,
the capital of Pakistan- occupied-Kashmir," Joint Commissioner (Special
Cell) Karnal Singh said here.
Abu, a Pakistani national, has told police that Major Wajahad used to visit
the Laskhar top leader at the outfit's sprawling 50 acre office in Shiwai
Nala, also known as Baitul Mujahideen, in Muzaffarabad.
"We have got details about ISI and Pakistan Army's connection with Laskhar-e-Taiba.
It is not that LeT's working independently. The monthly meeting discussed
terror activities in India and this brings out the linkages among terror groups,
Pakistan Army and the ISI, " he added.
He has also given details about the command structure of the outfit and names
of operatives in charge of various departments" (The Press Trust of India,
August 14, 2006)
So far, the British media has refused to address the fact that Scotland Yard
and the Home Office are collaborating with an intelligence agency which is known
to support the terror network.
One of the main suspects of the foiled UK plot is Rachid Rauf, who is detained
in an interrogation facility of Pakistan's military intelligence (ISI), in Rawalpindi.
Rauf is a member of Jaish-e-Muhammad, an ISI sponsored Kashmiri terrorist organization.
Pakistan interior minister Aftab Khan said that Rashid Rauf "had ties
to Al Qaeda: "We [the ISI] arrested him and on his disclosures we shared
the information with British authorities which led to further arrests in Britain,
