A newly formed Muhajir rights group tells U.S. lawmakers that ISI is supporting terrorist groups like Taliban, al-Qaeda to take control of Karachi


Washington, April 28, 2017 
A newly formed Mohajir rights group has informed the US lawmakers that Pakistan’s premier intelligence agency, Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), is supporting terrorist organisations inside the country. It also alleged that terror outfits like Taliban and al-Qaeda are trying to take control of the port city of Karachi.
"Nowadays Pakistan has become a safe haven for extremist groups with full support of Pakistani intelligence agency ISI," World Muhajir Congress said in a letter addressing members of The House Foreign Affairs Committee during a Congressional hearing on Afghanistan here in Washington yesterday.
Some representatives of the World Muhajir Congress also met members of The House Foreign Affairs Committee and briefed them on alleged strong connection between the ISI and the terrorist groups.
"We are afraid as Jihadi outfits are getting stronger with the support of ISI, important port city of Karachi which is the supply line of US and NATO could fall into the hands of these terror groups," the letter said.
"We fear for the safety of Karachi, Muhajir Nation and especially children, as these jihadi outfits are kidnapping/abducting young poor children and after brainwashing turning them suicide bombers, jihadis, and religious fanatics," it said.
With Karachi being one of the most vital seaports of Pakistan, the letter said, "the Taliban/ISIS/AlQaeda, and like-minded groups" are persistently making every possible endeavour to capture the control of Karachi.
"Such control can open new resources for manpower and finance for the terrorist agenda of these outfits," it said.
Alleging that pro-Taliban and Islamic extremist elements are ever increasing in Pakistan especially in the country’s armed forces and ISI, and are heavily supported financially, physically and armoured by ISI, the World Muhajir Congress urged the U.S.A. lawmakers to help them in fighting this menace in the port city of Karachi.
