Mumbai assault was named as Pakistani reaction to assault on Marriott Hotel in Islamabad on twentieth September 2008 in some security circles. Once more something of that sort and scale was up and coming after July 2008 assault on Indian international safe haven in Kabul. India and Afghanistan faulted that assault for ISI.
Indeed, even the alleged well disposed Taliban faulted the assault for Indo-Pakistan contention disregarding their availability to acknowledge all kind of Headline making savagery inside Afghanistan. A companion of mine let me know after the said assault in Kabul that as per Indian political circles, Pakistan had crossed the Rubicon.
There are obviously legitimized security worries of Pakistan’s military foundation in steadily developing Indian interests in Western flank of fringes. The report put together by Lt. Gen. McChrystal, the Commander of US Forces in Afghanistan and the ISAF, late September this year, seems to concede that worries. Under the rubric of “Outer Influences” he had mentioned taking after objective facts:
“Indian political and monetary impact is expanding in Afghanistan, including noteworthy advancement endeavors and money related speculation. Moreover, the present Afghan government is seen by Islamabad to be professional Indian. While Indian exercises to a great extent advantage the Afghan individuals, expanding Indian impact in Afghanistan is probably going to fuel provincial strains and support Pakistani countermeasures in Afghanistan or India.”
