From Karachi to Kabul… Horrific attacks on Chinese citizens, dangerous game of Pakistan revealed


Attack targeting Chinese citizens

The attack targeted the Chinese delegation in the capital Kabul when a meeting between the Chinese delegation and Taliban officials was about to take place at the Afghanistan Foreign Ministry. At the same time, the attacker blew himself up in a bomb blast, in which at least 20 people were killed. The responsibility of this horrific bomb blast has been taken by the Islamic State Khorasan, which is a proxy organization created by Pakistan. Wednesday’s attack outside Afghanistan’s foreign ministry was the second deadliest attack in less than a month, with Chinese citizens living in Afghanistan being the main targets. Earlier on 10 December 2022, members of the Islamic State-Khorasan (IS-K) attacked a hotel where Chinese businessmen often stay, injuring at least five Chinese citizens.

Talking to English news channel WION, Abhijit Iyer-Mitra, senior research fellow at the Institute of Peace and Conflict Studies, New Delhi, said that the Islamic State-Khorasan was “entirely a creation of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (IS-I)”. Is.” Iyer-Mitra said that “it has been proved time and again, that the Islamic State-Khorasan (IS-K) is a Pakistani creation.” Experts point out that Afghan and Pakistani Pashtuns serve as the public faces of the Islamic State offshoot’s outer layer.

After the dramatic exit of US forces from Afghanistan in August 2021 and subsequent fall of the democratically elected Ashraf Ghani government in Kabul, the Taliban opened the country’s prisons and released all the prisoners . In his October 2022 research paper, Atal Ahmadzai made public a research report on the fact that Islamic State-Khorasan (IS-K) sources indicate that more than 2000 IS-K fighters were killed just before the Taliban captured Kabul. K fighters were released. The released prisoners also included the terrorist who carried out a suicide bombing at Kabul airport on 26 August 2021, killing 170 Afghan civilians and 13 American soldiers. But, after this attack, the Taliban began to feel that the Islamic State-Khorasan could prove to be dangerous for them, so the Taliban started a campaign against IS-K members. The Taliban campaign against IS-K members has included beheadings, drownings and on-the-spot executions, prompting many IS-K members to seek refuge in neighboring Pakistan.

Abhijit Iyer-Mitra argued that Pakistan does not want “anyone to control Afghanistan except itself”. He added that, “Such attacks are a way of preventing direct Chinese government-to-action with the Taliban, the current rulers of Afghanistan. It is a way of undermining the agency of the Afghan state. It is sending a warning signal to the Chinese.” is that it cannot establish relations with Afghanistan without Pakistan. According to Aiyar-Mitra, basically everything here points towards Pakistan and only Pakistan in terms of purpose and capability. Whereas, Forum for Strategic Initiative According to Brigadier (retd) Arun Sehgal, executive director of the Taliban, the January 11 attack outside the Foreign Ministry in Kabul highlights that “the Taliban political leadership is not fully in control of the country’s affairs.”

What is the purpose of Pakistan?

It is believed that Pakistan wants to send a message to Taliban that Taliban should help in stopping TTP attacks in Pakistan, otherwise it will not let Afghanistan live peacefully. Relations between Pakistan and Taliban have become very tense regarding TTP and provocative statements are being made by the leaders of both countries, so Pakistan now wants to show that it can carry out blasts in Afghanistan whenever it wants. At the same time, an attempt has also been made by Pakistan to give this message to Taliban, that if Taliban officials do not listen to it, then it will not allow Chinese investment in Afghanistan and Taliban will have to include Pakistan in every Chinese investment. .
