shiitenews I S OPakLogoThe conspiracy of the biased Intelligence Agencies and Media outlets have been continued against Imamia Students Organization Pakistan (ISO), representative Students Organization of Shiite Students of the country.

The local Pakistani News Paper Express Tribune in its story published on 19th September 2011, Islamabad Edition, published a fabricated news story against the peace loving Imamia Students Organization to defame the organization in the masses.

This engineered story was the part of the ongoing conspiracies of the biased agencies officials and media persons to discredit the bright face of ISO. Shiite News has published this story for the awareness of our readers.

Intelligence agencies are learnt to have identified as many as two dozen extremist militant and sectarian outfits operating in Karachi who may face a crackdown once the hunt for politically-backed target killers is over.

An official said on Sunday extremist organisations will be targeted in the next phase.

“This proposal is under consideration,” briefly remarked a senior official of the Interior Minister without specifying whether it would be conducted by Rangers or regular troops.

According to a report compiled by intelligence agencies, as many as 19 groups — five of them run by Shias — were active in the city and their associates were involved in bomb explosions and murders.

In some cases, the report added, there was a nexus between criminal elements and extremist outfits, which made things even more complicated.

Among the groups active in Karachi, the biggest is Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ), an anti-Shia sectarian outfit involved in mass murder and improvised attacks on minority groups, including Ahmadis. It has a strong known al Qaeda link.

Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan (SSP), of which the LeJ is an offshoot, Harkat-e-Jihad-e-Islami, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan/al Qaeda, Harkat-ul-Mujahideen al Alami, Harkat-ul-Mujahideen, Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM), Jund Allah, Tehreek Islami Lashkar-e-Muhammadi, Sunni Tehreek and Lashkar-e-Islami are the other Sunni groups active in Karachi.

Among Shia militant outfits are: Sipah-e-Muhammad Pakistan (SMP), Imamia Student Organisation (ISO), Tehreek-e-Jaffaria Pakistan, Mehdi Militia and Hezbollah.

Intelligence operatives are unsure about the exact number of individuals actively associated with these organisations but said they might be in thousands.

Officials, both in Islamabad and Karachi, said the presence of these groups in the city and their ‘working relationship’ with the criminals warranted swift and timely action by law enforcement agencies.

Last month, the government ordered a crackdown against target killers allegedly nurtured by three main political parties – the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and Awami National Party (ANP).

The decision came after top military commanders expressed concern about the law and order situation in the country’s most populous city.

Officials said ‘those at the helm of affairs’ wanted to take the ongoing operations in Karachi to its logical end and that was possible only when everyone involved in all kinds of violence were targeted.

An official of the Sindh metropolis’ Crime Investigation Department (CID) verified that the agency had been asked to prepare new lists detailing sectarian and militant organisations.

This might be an indication of a crackdown against them, the official added.

IN a condemnation issued by the ISO to Shiite News against the Express Tribune one-sided story, The Imamia Student Organization (ISO) said that This is with reference to a news item published on September 20, 2011, in Express Tribune of Islamabad Edition, counting Imamia Student Organisation (ISO) as terrorist organisation. In the said news item, the baseless allegation on ISO for carrying out terrorist activities in Pakistan has exposed worth of your reporter who filed the fake news item.

The writer of the news story has definitely no knowledge about the background of the ISO, established in 1972 in Punjab University, hence he had declared ISO as terrorist organization by quoting some references of agencies, which is totally fake.

All Pakistani secret agencies know that ISO always voices over national and international issues related to the Muslim Ummah, and denounces US polices and Israeli brutality against Palestinians. ISO has always been in front of providing educational solutions to our Pakistani students regardless of their colour, religion, sect and language.  

ISO has always been recognized as peaceful organisation and patriotic to the country. The administration of the century publication must know the fact that ISO is isolated only in educational institutions from Karachi to Northern Areas.

Members of ISO condemn the publication of the said bogus news item, and ask the administration of the century publication to immediately print an explanation, and take action against the writer of this bogus story.
