UK Terror Raids: a different Take
For the benefit of my esteemed readers I would like to draw the attention to “undeniable evidence justifying the war against Iraq which was found to be a pack of lies the main architect being Robert Gates
Feeding from the war frenzy the British Police managed to shot dead Charles De Menez a Brizilian innocent traveler who was mistaken for a Pakistani and shot 7 times in the head.Later the police regretted that he was a Brazilian not a Pakistani. The regret was for the wrong nationality not for the fact that whether the person was innocent or not.
No WMD in Iraq, source claims
Number 10 will not comment on the report
No weapons of mass destruction have been found in Iraq by the group looking for them, according to a Bush administration source who has spoken to the BBC.
This will be the conclusion of the Iraq Survey Group's interim report, the source told the presenter of BBC television's Daily Politics show, Andrew Neil.
Downing Street branded the story "speculation about an unfinished draft of an interim report".
Moving to the present times in South Asia we have America’s war of Terror we have Afghanistan and Pakistan taking the full brunt of it. While Pakistan fights the Taliban and suffers the terror attacks on daily bases we have US and Indian officials accusing Pakistan on regular bases for having contacts with Taliban and not doing enough to defeat the Taliban and stop them from causing problems for America.
Now our Prime Minister is singing in tune with US asking Pakistan to do more.
PM challenges Pakistan on terror
Officers are carrying out intensive searches of all the properties raided
Gordon Brown has said Pakistan needs to do more to root out terrorism after police thwarted a suspected al-Qaeda bomb plot in north-west England.
He spoke after police were forced to bring forward arrests of 12 suspects, 11 of them Pakistanis, after a security blunder by Britain's anti-terror chief.
Assistant Commissioner Bob Quick resigned after he was photographed with clearly visible secret documents. Mr Brown said police had to move early to foil "a very big terrorist plot".
If you have managed to patiently read this far then I request you to stay with me for few more minutes regarding the reality of Pakistani Students coming to West. This is what is going in the mind of a Pakistani Student upon arriving
My Parents have paid dearly for the fee and I must not fail them
I need to make sure I fit in the university
I need to find work, any work to pay for the expenses and send some money back
I need to be careful with the people as I am a total stranger
I don’t need to be out at night or any place which is not safe for foreigners
I t is really embarrassing asking for directions or help from the people as they don’t seem to like my accent.
I should keep my head down as foreigners are not really welcome
I should make enough money and when I get home my parents will be proud
Likelihood of a foreign student being a terrorist
Now compare all this with the allegations that the terror suspects are all Pakistanis on student visas. Leaves me with wondering that the people who don’t get enough time after studies or late night work at take aways and other shops have enough time and resources to plot a terror plot in a country they have recently arrived?
What makes them a likely and easy target for police? They are foreigners and most likely no one here to speak for them and refute the allegations. they dont have friends or family here who can give you a diffferent version of story from what the police is telling you.
They don’t even have the understanding about their rights and what is happening to them
They happen to be Muslims and the nationals of a country which happens to be a target of US and Indian slander campaign and the militancy of Taliban.
On the positive side if all what is claimed is true then we are fortunate that a big terror plot is foiled as the government claims. But there are various incidents like Charles De Menez and shooting of one of the 2 Muslim brothers in east London which suggested that government was trying to get the people’s attention away from them when it was being heavily criticized. These arrests will definitely please US and India and cause more trouble for Pakistan if this is the only reason for this action today then it is shameful.
Like everyone I will wait for credible proof that this operation was not a sham to appease US and play a joint US game to keep Pakistan under political pressure. Below is the link of the story where the Police chief had to apologise for a police raid on innocent Muslim family which was shown on the media as a big terror operation back in 2006.
"I am aware that in mounting this operation we have caused disruption and inconvenience to many residents in Newham and for that I apologise," he said.
