The Proof of Pakistanis and Taliban working together
US air strikes on Kabul killed 35 members of a Pakistani terrorist group with links to terrorism, a Muslim cleric said late on Oct 23, 2001.  The cleric said 35 members of the Pakistani terrorist organisation, Harkat ul-Mujahideen, were killed when a US bomb struck the house they were staying at, on Oct 22, 2001. The terrorists killed were from Pakistani city of Lahore and included a senior leader known as Ustad Farooq. Also amongst the killed, Chacha Lahori, in an interview with Reuters last year had said he wanted to fight the forces of evil. 

Mufti Jamal, from the hardline Islamic Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI) party, told AFP in Karachi the men were all Pakistanis who were in Kabul to wage jihad, or (?)holy(?)  war.  Jamal said the 35 men were staying in a house in Darul Aman, to the south of Kabul, that was bombed.

Harkat is one of more than a dozen Pakistani Islamic terrorist groups spreading terror in Jammu and Kashmir. It has claimed credit for a number of attacks on Indian troops in Kashmir and is known to have trained by Pakistani Military. 

Harkat's accounts were frozen by the central State Bank of Pakistan on September 24, three days after US President George Bush said the terrorist organisation was on a list of  groups linked to terrorism.  Harkat has connections with the Al Qaida network of Osama bin Laden. So, along with OBL, Maulana Fazlur Rehman Khalil, who is the group leader, needs to be in the wanted list of US, either dead or alive.  
Harkatul Mujahideen was involved in the hijacking of an Indian airliner in December 1999. The  hijacking ended when India released Harkatul Mujahideen member Maulana Masood Azhar in exchange for the passengers.  Azhar later broke away and formed Jaish-e-Mohammad, a terrorist  organisation that supports Afghanistan's ruling Taliban and has also been placed on Washington's list of individuals and groups suspected of having links with Al Qaida.
Jaish-e-Mohammad was involved in the October 1 bombing of the state legislature of Srinagar, summer capital of Kashmir, in which 40 people were killed.
Recently, the Indian Air base in Avantipur, in the state of Jammu and Kashmir,  was attacked by Pakistan-led terrorists.  Out of five terrorists killed,  four were Pakistani nationals.  This time it was the work of Lashkar-e-Toiba. Earlier in January,  the same group had  attacked and tried to take a civil airport on the outskirts of Srinagar  when 12 terrorists got killed.
Harkat, Jaish  and Lashkar are all based in Pakistan and keep crossing the Afghanistan border for training and Indian borders to carry out terrorist activities.
Suggestion to United States and India 

US-led coalition is bombing Kabul, Kandahar ( Gandhar ),  Mazar-e-Sharief and other places in Afghanistan. But what about Pakistani cities of Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, Quetta, Rawalpindi which are actively sending Jihadis( in Afghanistan ) to fight against US. These very Jihadis are also active in Indian territories. 

The recent incident of 35 Harkat terrorists getting killed in Kabul, proves that Pakistani Military is still aiding the Jihadis to join forces with Taliban and fight along with them. 

For the war on terrorism to succeed the roots need to be burnt-down.  The roots are spread all-over the globe in the form of Al-Qaida.  Al-Qaida  has presence in each and every Islamic country and apart from this,  it also gets support from people in other countries which has a significant Muslim population.

India has lost so many lives, mainly the Hindus in Kashmir and the Indian soldiers in Kashmir,  because of the terrorism which is actively supported by Pakistan.  Now that,  like the Durand line, other lines are also melting down between Afghanistan and Pakistan; their are more chances of Afghanistan and Pakistan to disintegrate.  And even if this does not happen, India should be aggressive, not across LoC, but  in diplomacy, as of now.

India, Israel, Philippines, Macedonia, Russia and most recently US has faced terrorism.  Many more countries have,  and will in future be attacked by Terrorists.  Terrorism is the  enemy of Human civilization, Islamic Terrorism being the worst form of it.
