    LAHORE – French counter-terrorism authorities, acting on an intelligence tip-off provided by Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI), have successfully smashed a terrorist network headed by an Indian national.

    Well-informed sources said here on Thursday that the French Police arrested the gang leader Muhammad Niaz Abdul Rasheed, a 33-year-old Indian national from Madurai, from Charles de Gaulle Airport on May 10, this year as he returned from a recruiting trip to Algeria. Six of his accomplices were also apprehended from various French cities concurrently.

    The first group comprising two French nationals, sent by the French Popular Front (FPF), was on their way to Afghanistan when Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) personnel captured them during a successful raid in January this year from Lahore.

    The information passed by the Pakistani authorities resulted in the arrest of seven members of the FPF by the French intelligence, earlier this May.

    According to sources, Muhammad Niaz, who lived in India till 2008, came to France by marrying a woman having French nationality, ostensibly to acquire foreign nationality.

    He had been radicalised by the age of 21 primarily on account of a backlash to the oppressive treatment of Muslims in Baral Pur and joined Manitha Neethi Parasai, an offshoot of the Student Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) and predecessor of Indian Popular Front (IPF). Once in France, he planned to create a terrorist organisation, French Popular Front (FPF), on the lines of IPF model by creating a nucleus of young French jihadists to fight foreign troops in Afghanistan.

    According to observers, there is a strong possibility that Muhammad Niaz, working on the behest of RAW was attempting to infiltrate Taliban or Al-Qaeda network in Afghanistan through the diversion provided by a French connection. Reportedly, Rashid admitted that he was part of a network, which is recruiting people to carry out suicide bombings in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

    Further investigations are underway as the top Pakistanis officials are in close touch with French authorities, the sources added.


  • Sure Mirza Ghalaib, a truthful account you have posted. Sorry I had been away a bit, now being back I am able to pay my respects to your patriotic emotions that I do treasure the most.

  • Mirza Sahib, I feel a great deal of affection for my fellow bloggers, but many of them refuse to see beyond their own personal opinions to the general good of the country. Then, often, their opinions seem to be written in stone, Whatever happens, they are not willing to question their own vision of things.

    I'm so glad you at least did understand what my purpose was in posting the above item. At a time when our army and the ISI are being attacked from all sides, it is good to know that at least they are still working and working efficiently.

    As for the fifth column, they have had a field day in Pakistan for quite a long time now. I think we may have woken up to the dangers at long last. All the painful things that have been happening to us recently might well be a blessing in disguise. Not easy to be rid of them, I don't doubt, But the wake up call has not fallen on deaf ears,

  • humaray mulk ki security poori duniya kay liye aham hay.

    magar humaray apnay mulk kay logon, hukumrano,media walon kay liye nahi.

    kitna unfortunate hay yeh ?

  • sounds like master and slave's joint propaganda. kal ko west musharaf kai khilaf hojaye tau bikao army us ko bhi indian agent bana kar dollar loot maar ko justify kardi gi.

  • Choosy bhai

    kiyon kai humaree mulk ki establishment west kai liye aik maizbaan nokar chakar hai.

  • Choosy, your comment was exactly what needed to be said. Unfortunate, indeed. If we have things to reproach the establishment with, we'll settle our accounts with them later on, never fear. But now is just not the time.

    And who is the master and slave in this story, Junaid? Do you mean the ISI and the French secret service? Did you get taken in by all the false flags as well?

  • Mirza

    exactly. the notion is even after all the false flags they are still towing the same propaganda.
