PESA Press Release 30 March 2016

  An urgent joint meeting of the Executive Councils of Pakistan Ex-Servicemen Association and Society was held on 29 March 2016. Lt Gen Ali Kuli Khan was in chair. Meeting was attended by Vice Admiral Ahmad Tasnim, Air Vice Marshal Masood Akhtar, Lt Gen Naeem Akbar, Brig Mian Mahmud, Brig Masud ul Hassan and Brig Simon Sharaf of PESA and Col Sajjad and Col Mumtaz from PESS.

Meeting expressed deep sorrow and offered prayers for the people who lost their lives in the explosion caused by a terrorist suicide bomber. A concern was expressed that our civilian intelligence agencies have not yet been able to break in to the terrorists’ network within the country to keep pace with military’s Operation Zarb-e-Azb. Unless that is done, all success and sacrifices of the troops shall be nullified and nation will be left at the mercy of terrorists. All members gave wholehearted support to the anti terrorist operation launched by the Army in Punjab. As terrorists do not conform to provincial boundaries, it was suggested that this operation should be extended to cover entire country and Rangers’ operation at Karachi be also incorporated within it.

Members expressed appreciation for the intelligence agencies that have arrested a senior agent of Indian intelligence agency RAW who has been heading its anti Pakistan efforts in Balochistan. There have been reports since long about Indian involvement with separatist elements of Balochistan but this is the first case of getting solid evidence against India’s anti Pakistan activities. It was felt that instead of canceling his visit to USA for the summit conference, our Prime Minister should have availed of this opportunity to confront Indian Prime Minister with solid evidence and also taken other leaders in to confidence. Exposure of Indian enmity towards Pakistan would have strengthened our case regarding nuclear tactical weapons.

The meeting also took stock of newspaper reports that the Government of Bangladesh was planning to start in absentia, so-called war crimes trials of 195 Pakistan Army officers, linked to the events of 1971. These are the same officers who were isolated from the other prisoners of war by Indian authorities for trials on alleged war crimes. They could not, however, make any headway as no evidence of war crimes under Geneva Conventions could be found. It may be correct that those officers were released under Shimla Agreement but it is also a fact that India would not have hesitated to malign Pakistan Army by publicizing the charges and evidence. If the Government of Bangladesh wants to go back into history of events that took place about half century ago and conduct trial on false charges, not only in absentia but, in most cases, post humus, then it should better start with Lord Clive for what he did after the Battle of Plassey in 1857.
