New Delhi, Jan 25:  The only way Pakistan can stay relevant is doing what it does best. What else explains the firing by the Pakistan Rangers at the Jogwana post and three infiltration bids in the past 24 hours.

This despite the United States of America clearly telling them to maintain peace at least when their President is in the country.


Infiltration bids:

The Border Security Force in the past 24 hours foiled three infiltration bids attempted by Pakistan based terrorist groups. Military Intelligence officials told oneindia that the attempt to infiltrate was made by terrorist groups harboured by Pakistan.

The infiltration bids into Kashmir were made by the Hizbul Mujahideen and the Lashkar-e-Tayiba the officer informed. They were trying to send in 6 terrorists into the Valley.

Firing to stay relevant:

Pakistan Rangers on Sunday targeted a BSF post at Jogwana. Unlike the previous incidents which we have been witnessing in the past couple of weeks the one on Sunday was minor. There was small machinery used.

This was more of a signal by Pakistan that they are not cowed down by the warning that the US had issued. Moreover in Pakistan the Obama visit is being watched closely and there are many who are uncomfortable about the growing ties.

Such incidents of firing and infiltration in the existing situation are not dangerous but a way of Pakistan trying to tell both India and the US that they are still relevant.

Security beefed up:

Meanwhile security has been enhanced along all borders in the country. Intelligence Bureau warn of infiltration bids especially along the Bangladesh border.

Many militants of the Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh could try to enter into the country at this time. There is an input that they want to rebuild their modules which were busted post Burdhwan.
