Cairo, Dec. 12 (ANI): Condemning the recent terror strikes in Pakistan, the Al Qaeda has denied its involvement in the series of terror attacks in the country in the recent past, saying such strikes were 'un-Islamic.'
In it's latest English language video, Qaeda blamed the US and Pakistani intelligence services for the bloodshed in the country.
"The perpetration of such deplorable acts and the pinning of responsibility for them on the mujahideen, only serves the enemies of Islam and Muslims, who are today staring defeat in the face," the video showed US-born Qaeda operative, Adam Gadahn, who commonly delivers the banned outfit's English messages, as saying.
Gadahn also accused the Indian intelligence agency, the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) and the Pakistani media for implicating Al-Qaeda in the attacks.
"The mercenaries of the ISI, RAW, CIA or Blackwater are the real culprits behind these senseless and un-Islamic bombings," The Dawn quoted Gadahn, as saying.
In a transcript of the video released by the SITE Intelligence Group, a Washington-based monitor of militant websites, Gadahn told Pakistanis that their real enemies were secular regimes, corrupt police, judges and tribal nationalists.
According to the FBI's records, Gadahn grew up in Los Angeles and then moved to Pakistan in 1998. He is said to have attended an Al Qaeda training camp six years later, serving as a translator and consultant for the extremist group.
More than 500 people have died in a wave of deadly attacks in Pakistan that began in October, just as the Army initiated an all out offensive against extremist in South Waziristan, the region which is believed to be the Taliban's stronghold. (ANI)
