If there are any sane strategic thinkers in TTP/Al Qaida leadership then attacking India will be the next high priority task for them. It will serve lots of objectives : PA will be diverted to India, thus TTP/Al Qaida getting some breathing time to oraganise, the war will be between two Kufr states - Long time old Kufr state of India & recently turned less Kufr state of PA, NATO atention will get diverted, etc.
But there is another simpler and more credible explanation. The Pakistani army itself, using the name "Al Qaeda/LeT" is trying to provoke war with India because it will:
1) Save the Paki army's ass in many ways
- a)They will no longer have to fight their ummah brothers in the west
b)The US supply line will get screwed
c)The US will ge desperate and intervene to save Pakistan and put pressure on India
3) Under the excuse of "war" and "emergency" the Pakistani army can use genocide against anyone who opposes them in Pakistan (eg Balochis)
It is the Pakistani army that has everything to gain in a war with India, because ina war only Pakistan gets defeated not the army, and only soldiers get killed not their bosses
The Times of India news is a stupid and naive one that does not understand Pakistan.
