A report compiled by Islamabad Policy Research Institute has revealed that the terrorist group of Islamic State-Khorasan Province (ISIS-K) has carried out eight major attacks in Pakistan causing deaths of 515 people and injuries of 893 others.
Whereas, the same outfit carried out 22 attacks in Afghanistan which left 912 people dead and 1,597 others injured, since 2016 to till date.
As per the report, India invested heavily in Afghanistan pumped in up to US three billion dollars in the war-ravaged country. And under the cover of construction and related activity, it carried out its clandestine activity through its intelligence network to establish its deep foothold, a senior security official said.
With heavy funding from India, youth from Kerala were recruited and trained and tasked to target Pakistan, Afghanistan, US forces, the West and of course their arch enemy – the Taliban. This network comprised ISIS elements controlled by Indian RAW officers as manifested in the Doval strategy to hurt Pakistan’s internal economic stability. Ajit Doval’s open admission to this effect is on record where he pointed out the “vulnerabilities” of Pakistan.
