At least three gunmen have reportedly attacked Bacha Khan University in northwest Pakistan, injuring several people. Students and teachers were alleged to have been present on the premises at the time of the attack.

Pakistan’s Geo TV station is citing local police who say firing can be heard coming from inside the university. According to the channel's reporter on site, five injured people were taken off the premises. The armed men are reported to be hiding on campus. A heavy police presence is also reported on the site of the attack.

...


Now, who's keeping scores?

The bluff was called, but India should have driven the dagger home a little bit more.


The Pakis would have known this, so would have at least some in the Indian administration. Not to mention, the Americans and the Israelis would have known. Knowing all this, why did the Pakis go ahead with it?

Death toll is 50 as of now.

DAWN excerpts:
Attackers are believed to be on the second and third floors of the campus buildings.

Emergency has been imposed at all district hospitals

This might stretch long...

Rumors of possible terrorist attacks on schools had been circulating in Peshawar and surrounding rural areas over the last week, forcing some schools to close educational institutions early.
District administration had directed some schools to close their campuses for one day (last Saturday) insisting there were reports of possible terrorist attacks on them.

So for their authorities/forces; it was a non-surprise, intel preceded attack like Pathankot??
In that case, a University of 3000 students could have been guarded better.

School was named after Pakhtun Gandhian. Anniv was being observed. I think he was opposed to partition so therefore may have been a PA backed Taliban attack rather than an IS one.

Pakis claim just 21 dead. I think the final number will be much more than that. Reports say there were 6 huge explosions inside the campus and statements of rescued students indicate at least 50 dead.

This is why talks are so important. Pakistan should talk to TTP and resolve all the core issues including the status of Durrand line and imposition of Sharia for the sake of peace in South Asia. Pakistan being the bigger entity should show big heart and compromise to resolve disputes.

As i see it as per lahori logic if you are a paki with a gun then anyone who cant shoot back at you is fair game. He is to be shot at and claim killed a terrorist if you are a sarkari green and claim killed a fake muslim if you are non-sarkari green! Its only a matter of time for a mullah from both side to come out with a fatwa declaring so and so is true green and who is not based on who kills most! I say Godspeed to finding out turest green of all green!

Small price for ISI to pay, to be able to claim that `we are also victims of terror'.
The attackers seem to be junior grade guys - going by the death toll.

APS mastermind claims Bacha Khan University attack, 21 killed
AP | Dawn.com | Reuters | Ali Akbar — Updated 43 minutes ago

Very detail article ; some obvious conclusions from reading it:

IMO, this is a blowback from the so-called military operations being conducted in FATA
The TTP who claimed "credit" wants to send a message to the Paki Army ( " if you target our civilians, we will target yours")
TTP wants to instill a psychological fear by this kind of a guerilla attack
Pak Govt will surely blame Afghanistan for "not doing enough to control border crossing"
As said before, the Pashtuns are "famous" for implementing Pushtunwali - their code of behaviour ; one of their tenets in badal (revenge)
Asfandyar Wali Khan (grandson of Bacha Khan) has commented, after this attack, that he has no confidence in the so-called NAP to curb "terrorism"

its totally possible that a part of the death toll of the civilians would be caused by Pak phauj.

they will write it off as "collateral" damage just like they write off casualties by F16 and bandar strikes on hapless guys on the ground.

chemistry teacher who tried to protect his students by opening fire on Taliban militants during a deadly attack at a Pakistani university has been hailed as a "martyr" and a "gentleman"
.
This is truly wild wild west.

Teachers in northwest Pakistan were given permission to carry firearms in the classroom after Taliban militants massacred more than 150 people, the majority of them children, at a school in the city of Peshawar in 2014.


What's next TFTA Rambo's coming to class teaching kids(budding Abdulssalams) :rotfl: :rotfl:

I was also thinking on same lines. Reminds me of MP's multiple statements. I for one be happy if that's case, though will be happier, if the thappad was solidly given by Indian military to Porki Military to have a big loss of face.

Just saw this on IDRW

http://idrw.org/pakistan-pulls-down-peshawar-school-attack-game-after-criticism/


Pakistan has removed a video game based on horrendous attack at an army-run school in Peshawar by heavily-armed Taliban militants, after criticism.At least 150 people, mostly children, were killed in the attack on the schoolon December 16, 2014.

The attack prompted Punjab province’s IT Board to develop an Android game and release it last month. After running for weeks, the game failed to attract favourable reviews and the families of the victims were not impressed. Many took to social media to flay the idea as well as the attempt. “The APS game has been removed. It was in poor taste. Thank you for highlighting the mistake. We have made the amends,” tweeted Umar Saif, chief of Punjab IT Board.

The first-person shooter game titled ‘Pakistan Army Retribution’ begins with the national anthem and depicts events that took place on the dreadful day. The player’s task is to lead soldiers into the main building and eliminate the heavily armed terrorists scattered throughout the premises.

“The game may be an attempt to pay tribute to the Pakistan Army, but the app itself is not very well made considering the name behind it, and the market it was placed in,” the Dawn reported.

It said that one can understand the emotional attachment to the story but as a game, it falls flat.

“No one, especially families of the victims, would ever want to re-live that dark day. But oddly enough, the developers decided to recreate those moments for a gaming experience,” the paper said. “From visuals to controls, the game just doesn’t deliver.

Even when taking on such an unlikely subject, the Punjab IT Board is expected to deliver something far superior,” it said.

Punjab IT board!! is it e-cell of International Terrorism Board. Perhaps they wanted to create their on version of Counter Strike named "Terror Strike"

The average Paki wanted Indians to "move on" from 26/11 and supported the LeT roaming free in Pakistan -- no need show these mofos any sympathy or empathy. They can all burn.

1. India condemns this senseless act of violence.
2. Pakistani Army is responsible for this by using indiscriminate forcewhile dealing poor people of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.
3. Government of Pakistan should form a committee of religio-political figures (including the Maulvi of Lal Masjid) to conduct parley with peace loving people.
4. Armed operations should be called off immediately so that so more blood of innocents is shed.

Yeah since terrorists and Pakifauj use the same ammo you will never know who caused more casualties, the attackers or the LOLdefenderj

Latest news is 19 to 30 dead depending on source. Pakis are hiding the actual number the motherpluckers

The demon we created
IT took yet another militant attack across the border and increasing pressure from outside powers for us to finally act against Masood Azhar and his militant network — although one is not sure how serious we are in cleaning out the stables this time. Although proscribed some 14 years ago, his organisation continued to operate freely despite the evidence of its being involved in militant activities at home and outside.

Many believe that the Pathankot raid and the alleged involvement of JeM in the incident may constitute a tipping point in the battle against militancy in Punjab. But it remains to be seen whether the government sticks to its promise.[/b]

Many believe that the Pathankot raid and the alleged involvement of JeM may constitute a tipping point.

Ironically, all those who had figured in the incident returned to haunt Pakistan with the turn of events a few years later. Sheikh was sentenced to death by a Pakistani anti-terrorism court for his involvement in the kidnapping and killing of American journalist Daniel Pearl in 2002.

Most of Pakistan’s terrorism problems have roots in our past policy of promoting militant groups like JeM to fight proxy wars. It is now time to undo that historical wrong. One hopes the tipping point has finally arrived.

"Those who kill innocent students and civilians have no religion," said Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
"We saw three terrorists shouting, 'Allah is great!' and rushing towards the stairs of our department," said a male student to reporters. "One student jumped out of the classroom through the window. We never saw him get up."

Noticed a MRAP in one of the video. US has donated the ones from Afghanistan to PA. It is almost equivalent to wheeled APC.

Free mechanisation of PA, while GOI is still arguging about who should provide APC for IA. should it be tata's or PSU.

We still dont have enough stocks of bread & butter ammo, whereas tactical targets across is increasing rapidly.

Mumtaz Qadri begs president for mercy

Don't want 72 anymore Whore's Signor

ISLAMABAD - After Supreme Court maintained his death sentence, relatives of Mumtaz Qadri, the self-confessed murderer of former Punjab Governor Salman Taseer, have filed mercy petition before President Mamnoon Hussain.Official sources confirmed the mercy appeal has been filed in Interior Ministry’s petition cell. “I will file mercy plea before the President on behalf of Mumtaz Qadri’s father Malik Muhammad Bashir Awan”, Nazir Akhtar had said.He, however, said President under the Constitution had the authority to pardon a convict or minimise his/her sentence stating he will highlight specific legal points or some lacunae in the mercy petition for his client Mumtaz Qadri.While rejecting the review petition the apex court had also dismissed the convict’s request for a larger bench with an observation that Mumtaz Qadri had confessed to have carried out the assassination at all stages of the case and had been arrested from the crime scene.It is to be mentioned here that supporters of Mumtaz Qadri have rejected the judgment of Supreme Court that maintained the death penalty for the self-confessed murderer of former Governor Punjab.Pakistan Sunni Tehrik, the Barelvi political party has already taken to the streets in Lahore, Karachi and Rawalpindi-Islamabad denouncing the apex court judgment demanding that the trial should be carried out in Shariat Court.

I dont think Bacha Khan attack has anything to do with IK Gujral's ghosts dying out. They would not have selected that particular target if it indeed IKGs ghosts were RIPed.

Any clues on the ethnicity of those killed?

If the victims were Baloch, TTP may have done it, but why would they target Baloch is not clear
If the victims were Pashtuns, TTP, being a pakjabi terrorist organization, may have done it
If the victims were Shias, again, TTP would have done it being a Sunni terrorist organization
If the victims were kids of military background (hence largely pakjabi), the real pashtun/afghan talibunnies (not TTP) may have done it, as a payback (this seems most logical)

But overall, the objective would not be clear at all unless we know the victims. Otherwise, it just seems that TTP or some other org. wanted to encash some spare jihadis.

And no, its unlikely that IKG's ghosts has anything to do with it---its way below their dignity.
