Claiming responsibility for the terrorist attacks has also become a pastime for the obscure forces and even the governments take it as a tool of exploitation. Though Deccan Mujahideen, an unknown militant organization in India accepted the onus of the Mumbai carnage, India took it religiously that Pakistan based outfits have done that.
A previously-unknown pro-Taliban group, Ansar Wa Mohajir, has claimed responsibility for Wednesday’s bomb explosion in Lahore and the earlier rocket attacks on Dera Ismail Khan. But there are many discrepancies in the account told by this forgotten outfit. Terrorist outfit claimed it was a suicide bombing, targeting a government installation. But the police in Lahore were saying the explosion took place in a mini-truck carrying explosives.
Another glaring discrepancy was about the actual target. Toofan Wazir, identifying himself as a commander and spokesman of the group, phoned the local newspaper from somewhere in North Waziristan to claim responsibility for the Lahore attacks. Toofan was an idiot. He didn’t know about the target where the blast occurred and he was also clueless about the number of rockets fired in the Dera Ismail Khan.
It was basically another RAW effort to falsify the Pakistani assertion that the Lahore attacks were carried out by the Indians.
