Former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf is certainly not the only one pointing fingers at the country’s closest neighbour India and its intelligence agency RAW for the massacre at the Army Public School, as many in Pakistan believe it to be true.


Late on Wednesday evening, Musharraf toldCNN-IBN that Maulana Fazlullah, the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan commander was trained by RAW and  supported by former Karzai government for carrying out the terror attacks in Peshawar’s Army Public School.

His allegations simply seem to echo the general perception of the fundamentalists in Pakistan. Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed has also alleged that India was behind the Peshawar attack and jihadis must target India in retaliation

Earlier in the day Mubashir Luqman, a Pakistani TV host, said that the Pakistani government had intelligence inputs days before the attack that India’s RAW was planning a major terrorist attack in the country.

Luqman claimed that there were ‘confirmed’ reports of a terrorist strike that was orchestrated by India, but despite that the Pakistani government failed to act on the intelligence.

Luqman’s claims stems from a report that was published in Pakistan on 13 December, which stated that Indian secret security agency has completed its preparations for a terrorist attack.
