Killing Saeed in a City like Lahore Is a Problem for USA

Killing Innocent Indians In The Name Of Prophet Mohammad


Killing Innocent Indians In The Name Of Prophet Mohammad

USA has announced a bounty of $10 million on Lashkar-e Taiba leader Hafiz Muhammad Saeed. It is an excellent decision by USA and Indians are very pleased about it. The fact that the decision was announced from the Indian soil has made Indians very happy about it. Saeed Hafiz was responsible for the plotting and execution of the 2008 Mumbai terror attack which killed many innocent Indians including Muslims. Saeed Hafiz did it in the name of Islam and Prophet Mohammad. Even though India had been insisting on taking legal action and punishing Saeed Hafiz for this heinous crime, both USA and Pakistan had ignored India’s plea. Pakistan had been pleading that there was no evidence to arrest Saeed Hafiz. Pakistan courts have also taken lenient view on Saeed Hafiz. The local Punjab government is also supportive to Saeed Hafiz.

Saeed Hafiz Has a Celebrity Status in Pakistan

Saeed Hafiz enjoys a celebrity status among Pakistan people. He is also getting support from the Al Qaida, Talibans and other terrorist networks. Saeed Hafiz campaigns openly for killing of Indians and the Americans in the name of Islam and Prophet Mohammad. He preaches that Prophet Mohammad will be pleased only if Indians and Americans are killed. India could do nothing about it.

There Are Problems Using Drones

Now USA has announced this bounty on Saeed Hafiz’s head. But this measure as such will not please India. What pleases India is the possibility of USA using its drones to kill Saeed Hafiz. If this happens, entire India will celebrate that event. India is waiting for such a momentous occasion to happen in the near future. But there are difficulties in executing this military strategy. Saeed Hafiz claims that he is not in the hiding and is openly propagating his views. It is true and it makes all the more easier for USA to kill him through its drones. But the problem is that Saeed Hafiz does not live in the tribal areas of North West Frontier Province bordering Afghanistan. He lives in the modern city of Lahore.

Will US Drones Kill Saeed Hafiz?


Killing Saeed in a City like Lahore Is a Problem for USA

Can USA use its drones in a city like Lahore? It is one thing to use the drones in a tribal area bordering Afghanistan but quite another to use in a city like Lahore. In tribal areas, the drone operation largely goes unnoticed by the rest of the world or even in rest of Pakistan. But even a single drone attack killing say ten people in Lahore will galvanize entire Pakistan against USA which is already facing trouble in both Afghanistan and Pakistan. But if a satellite can pinpoint the whereabouts of Saeed Hafiz exactly and the drone strikes there killing Saeed Hafiz and his associates alone without causing any other loss of life, then India can complement USA for that precise operation.

Commando Action Can Kill Saeed Hafiz in Lahore

USA can also use commandos to kill Saeed Hafiz in a midnight operation. This was what USA did against the dreaded terrorist and Al Qaida leader Osama bin Laden last year in Abbottabad. Lahore city has practically no night life and goes to sleep by midnight. If USA knows about the whereabouts of Saeed Hafiz, it can send a commando team to that place in Lahore and finish him off. Pakistan military and the government will also cooperate with USA albeit secretly to achieve this task. Publicly the Pakistan government and military may condemn USA for this operation, but behind the veil, they will support US action. Obama will also get credit for this bold action and his re-election prospects will get boosted now.

When Ilyas Kashmiri Was Killed, Indians Rejoiced

Ilyas Kashmiri was a dreaded terrorist. He captured an Indian soldier and beheaded him. He presented the head of the Indian soldier as a gift to the then Pakistan military ruler Pervez Musharraf. Musharraf rewarded him with gifts. But when Ilyas Kashmiri was killed by the drone operation of USA sometime back in the border area of Afghanistan, Indians rejoiced. Sweets were distributed throughout India and Indians danced in the open, blaring up music. India knows very well that it is impossible to book Saeed Hafiz legally either in Pakistan or in India for the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks. What the Indians want is his head. Whether it is done lawfully or otherwise does not matter. USA should act now and make Indians happy by killing Saeed Hafiz.
