In a sensational disclosure by “Daily Pakistan” it has been claimed that Pak Social Media is abuzz with a video by a sepoy of Pakistan Army, which claims that Pak Army killed its own bleeding children to garner national sympathy, in Army Public School Peshawar in 2014. The sensational disclosure also includes a confessional video by a former Pak Army official, now a member of Jamaat ul Ahrar, who can be seen claiming that he was involved in killing children, at the behest of his superiors.
Mudassir Iqbal, claiming to be a former Army official in a short video claimed that Moulana Fazal Ullah was conveyed a message to launch an attack on APS Peshawar. Iqbal, in his short video, alleged, without any proof that the attack was planned to barter detained soldiers of Pak Army with militant groups.
He went on and claimed that the Pak Army had caught control of APS Peshawar within few hours but on the orders of superiors, the children were killed to show the negative side of Taliban. The sepoy alleged that a Major Jawad ordered his subordinates including him to kill the injured children.
Even if the contents of the above Video are not true, it is difficult to believe that such campaign was allowed to be run on Social Media by Pak Army, which is very sensitive to any sort of criticism. How a sepoy level officer could make such huge claims, along with JuA that is releasing information about recent attacks co-joined with US President Donald Trump’s Afghan policy.
However, on the other hand it is observed that Pakistan Army is tired fighting its own citizens. It has lost Pakistan’s territory, ideology, democracy, financial and intellectual capital, ruined its institutions and tarnished Pakistan’s image globally reducing it to that of a haven of safe terrorists’as recently brought out by US President. There is now a conflict in approach within the lower ranks and the top brass of the Pak Army and the morale of the troops to fight further is diminishing. Therefore, by plotting this barbaric act Pak Army aimed to achieve two goals; firstly it appeared as a savior of its citizens who had lost faith in their own Army. Secondly, by targeting children of own soldiers they achieved in irking them, giving them a cause to fight ( which they were failing to do so ) to realize their own politically motivated vested interests. The truthfulness of this barbaric plot may never see the day of light, however, somewhere it has sown the seeds of treason within its own flock. This indicates that Pak army has no ethos and if they can kill their own children they wouldn’t hesitate in carrying out all those barbaric activities of beheading and mutilation of Indian soldiers along the LoC, that India for long has been voicing out.
