LAHORE As millions of mourners observed the first 10 days of the holy month of Muharram with religious zeal and fervour, this year, not a single terror incident took place across the otherwise terror-hit country. Following complete peace in Pakistan during Ashura , the anti-Pakistan elements, particularly the hostile intelligence agencies are caught by surprise, thanks to the law- enforcing and intelligence agencies for taking extraordinary measures to ensure foolproof security during the holy month. Earlier, authorities sounded country high-alert while all the law enforcing agencies were put on red-alert with massive deployment of police and paramilitary forces across the country to ensure peace during Muharram. Security and defence experts however, said that the possibility of some sort of agreement between the Taliban and the government to ensure peace in the holy of month of Muharram could not be ruled out. Federal Minister for Interior Rehman Malik on Tuesday commended the security forces for maintaining peace during Ashura processions. Speaking to the reporter in Islamabad, he said that he was thankful to everyone, including the Taliban, for their cooperation in ensuring peaceful Ashura processions throughout the country during the 9th and 10th of Muharram. Malik said he had appealed to the Taliban to spare the Muharram processions and that 'they positively responded to my appeal. This is a good sign and I am confident that the security situation will further improve in future. As the US-led NATO forces in Afghanistan poorly failed to provide peaceful environment to the mourners in the holy month, the US media immediately came out to launch propaganda against Pakistan, countrys involving premier intelligence agency Inter-Services Intelligence or ISI in the Kabul attacks. Following Western media, Afghan President Hamid Karzai said on Wednesday, even without prior investigations, that the suicide bombing targeting Shiite worshippers in Kabul that killed dozens was plotted in Pakistan. Karzai said he believed Lashkar-e-Jhangvi was behind the attacks. This group is linked to the Taliban and al Qaeda. But on the other hand, a senior security officer said, 'Lashkar-e-Janghvi has declared war on the security forces in Pakistan. They are being hunted down. 'This is totally baseless and nonsense, he said while referring to Afghan Presidents allegations. Defence experts say that the US double standards in Afghanistan can well be construed from Washingtons attitude against any negotiations taking place between Pakistan and Taliban. 'Since 2004 whenever a peace agreement took place between Taliban and Pakistan, US not only disapproved it but also spoiled the agreement encouraging the terrorists to attack Pakistani security forces, a security expert said. According to him, on the other hand US efforts to engage Taliban in talks are also known to the world. Such US mischievous designs would not help her to achieve their 'objectives in Afghanistan, he maintained. Independent observers said that various al Qaeda off-shoots carry out deadly attacks in Pakistan, Iraq and Afghanistan. On Monday, nearly two dozen Iraqis were killed and more than 75 wounded in at least seven separate attacks on pilgrims headed to or from the Shiite holy City of Karbala in southern Iraq. They said that such baseless allegations are part of American propaganda campaign against Pakistani security forces and ISI. According to officials, extraordinary and round-the-clock armed patrolling in the sensitive areas and gigantic search operations, carried out ahead of the main Muharram processions, also helped law-enforcing agencies maintain peace during crucial religious meetings and processions. Millions of Shia Muslims across Pakistan on Tuesday commemorated the martyrdom of Imam Hussain, the grandson of Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) amid unprecedented security. Thousands of paramilitary soldiers and police officials were deployed to provide security during the processions. In the past years, deadly attacks targeted Muharam processions in the big cities of Pakistan, but Tuesday was relatively peaceful with no major attack in any part of the country. A great number of processions concluded peacefully across Pakistan in the evening. Walk-through gates had been put in place at all entry points of the processions and every participant was searched through detectors. In sensitive areas, Pakistani security forces used helicopters for aerial monitoring of the processions.
