India Must Remain Prepared To Country Lashkar-Trained Taliban Attacks

With the recent arrest of two suspected terrorists by the Mumbai Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS), the conspiracy to blast places in Mumbai has been foiled. This is certainly a big success. Both terrorists are residents of Mumbai. The maps of the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation's (ONGC) tank, Mangaldas market of South Mumbai, and Thakkar Mall of Borivali have been recovered from them. The plot was to carry out blasts at the above places.

Pakistan's Terrorist Group
According to the ATS, both terrorists were in contact with some "uncle" in Pakistan and they were trying to carry out the plot at his behest. It has also been said that both terrorists have received training in Pakistan. It has not been ascertained to which Pakistani terrorist group they are linked to, but it is not difficult to guess.

The needle of suspicion only points toward the Lashkar-e-Taiyiba (LeT). It has threatened to carry out 26/11-like big terrorist attack on Mumbai. Intelligence sources also have been issuing warning.

Suicide Attacks in India
In Gujarat also one terrorist has been arrested. He is said to be linked to the Hizbul Mujahidin. He used to brainwash the youth and send them to Pakistan for training. After the plot to attack Mumbai has been foiled, the country would have to remain even more alert. The threat of terrorism continues. Pakistan-sponsored LeT has released its modules all around India with the help of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), who are spread across the country. We would have to crush these traitors at home.

Reports are also received through the intelligence sources that the LeT is training Taliban terrorists, who have surrendered before the Pakistani Army, for carrying out suicide attacks in India. At the instance of the Pakistani Army, the LeT is training the Taliban for suicide attacks in India. In fact, it would be a serious challenge for our security system, but we should be prepared to deal with the same.
