Fatema Miah : Terrorists and Pakistani deception to Western world
As it is mentioned in proverbial term, to enhance our logic and for moral teaching, “what goes up comes back down”. As it is evident, what seeds you sew the crops you harvest! Although this is very sarcastic! Ironically, collaboration with Pakistan backfired on America. In today’s world of terror, Al-Qaeda, todays’ USA’s direct and renowned enemy was sheltered and nurtured in Pakistan. USA is bearing the consequences of its inhumane collaboration that they formed with Pakistan to satisfy its Political greed for its power expansion. In this modern globalised commercial era, in business term, in relation to language of financial market, the profit of collaboration emerged in accordance to its investment on the margin, as such, that the Pakistan became world’s biggest threat to USA, by harbouring and supporting Al-Qaeda the global terrorists’ organisation.
Very interestingly, the definition of Al-Qaeda, in the today’s global world is ‘act of terrorism’. This Arabic phrase has a new definition in the Western World.
(On the internet) the definition of Al-Qaeda “ is a loosely-knit militant Islamic organization led and funded by Osama bin Laden, by whom it was established in the late 1980s from Arab volunteers who had fought the Soviet troops previously based in Afghanistan; known or believed to be behind a number of operations against Western, especially US, interests, including bomb attacks on two US embassies in Africa in 1998 and the destruction of the World Trade Center in New York in 2001”. From (The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition by Houghton Mifflin Company).
In the same dictionary, in the thesaurus, the definition further explained as such:
“Al-Qaeda – a terrorist network intensely opposed to the United States that dispenses money and logistical support and training to a wide variety of radical Islamic terrorist groups; has cells in more than 50 countries.
Al-Qaeda, al-Qaeda, Qaeda, Base act of terrorism, terrorism, terrorist act – the calculated use of violence (or the threat of violence) against civilians in order to attain goals that are political or religious or ideological in nature; this is done through intimidation or coercion or instilling fear.
Afghanistan, Islamic State of Afghanistan – a mountainous landlocked country in central Asia; bordered by Iran to the west and Russia to the north and Pakistan to the east and south; “Soviet troops invaded Afghanistan in 1979.
Islamic Republic of Pakistan, Pakistan, West Pakistan – a Muslim republic that occupies the heartland of ancient south Asian civilization in the Indus River valley; formerly part of India; achieved independence from the United Kingdom in 1947”.
This above linkage of explained definition relating to Al-Qaeda linked towards to and automatically ended in Pakistan. Pakistan where al-Qaeda took shelter in Peshawar province as a group and with family, from there they continuously made threats to USA and UK, while the entire world was wondering where they were. The most important Point is that the United State of America was searching for al-Qaeda desperately for their revenge, in political reformation juristic term the correct phrase of war against Terrorism, is to bring to justice against the act of terrorism. Further Al-Qaeda planned an attack on United Kingdom, and sadly, they successfully pursued at attack in London. London was bombed on the 7th of July in 2005. The threat from Al-Qaeda was prominent since the Terrorists attack in America in 2011. Sadly, this terror attacks and threats were made, during the Globalised, Blairism government, when Mr Blair and his cabinet of ministers enthusiastically stretched to reach across the word to integrate the world.
Tension due to terror threats to UK, after the 9/11 event opened up many unknown chapters before British public. Suddenly, via BBC documentaries British people were made aware of Political mistakes in Immigration section that allowed international criminals to be asylum in UK. A name was given to them, Islamic Extremists. According to those documentaries, it was revealed that there were few ill minded fanatical people with ill intentions those were sheltered in UK. Political Asylum they call it. Islam is a Religion and the followers of Islam are Muslims. Then who are the Islamic extremists. There is also another word for them is Muslim fanatics. Muslim people in UK lived here for decades practising their faith. For most general Muslims, it was a confusing topic. The news of Britain is under the threat from Islamic Extremists, was a very confusing topic for most British Muslims. ‘British Muslims’ a word for all the Islamic faith practising people of all ethnic background in UK acquired British citizenship. This is also a British Political term, pronounced by British Government, while acknowledging that a section of their Citizen is faith of Islam practitioners.
Atmosphere in Britain changed. Thread from Al-Qaeda to attack Britain was continuous. Britain, America and rest of the world were desperately looking for Al-Qaeda. After all, Britain was attacked by Al-Qaeda. Sadly, among the Al-Qaeda terrorists or volunteers, there were few British home grown British Citizen. Surely this was as well as shocking for everyone, very saddening for British Native English People. Once Mr Milliband expressed his assumption by commenting that Al-Qaeda being hiding in Pakistan and Pakistani British citizens in UK reacted to his comment. Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf, while collaborating with USA, acting as part of War Against terrors, allowing USA fighting against Taliban of Afghanistan, Al-Qaeda was allowed hiding in Pakistan.
