November 9, 2018

In a high profile press conference by a Europe-based leading non Governmental Organisation (NGO), it has been revealed that Pakistan is one of the countries which give military and psychological training and state support to terrorists. Junaid Qureshi, director, European Foundation for South Asian Studies (EFSAS) made the observations at Crans Montana Forum in Switzerland- news agency ANI reported.

Citing Qureshi, the report said that the sleeper cells in Pakistan have enjoyed military and psychological training in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. “Some extremists in Europe have shown to derive inspiration from successes of other extremists elsewhere and as such establish sleeper cells which threaten the basic fundamentals of democracy in Europe and pose serious challenges to security concerns that the rest of the world has,” he was quoted as saying by ANI.

“These sleeper cells are known to have enjoyed psychological and military training in South Asia, particularly in countries like Afghanistan and Bangladesh, which has turned them into a formidable force to reckon with,” he further said. He also observed that the expansion of global terror organisations such as ISIS and Al Qaeda instigated local terror networks such as Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operating from Pakistan, ‘as it continues to enjoy patronage from state actors’.

“One cannot afford to underestimate the formidable an infrastructure of terrorism in South Asia,” while highlighting that the threat of terrorism is not restricted to its region of origin anymore due to the expansion and worldwide recruitment policies of terrorist organisations,” he was quoted as saying by ANI.
