Here is a spectacular example of the finger-pointing and refusal to accept responsibility that we constantly see from Muslim leaders — with a heaping helping of projection directed toward India. Bear in mind that high levels of the Pakistani government — including the ISI — have been involved in jihad attacks against India. And so Munawar Hassan accuses India of meddling in Pakistan. Often you can get a good picture of what jihadis are doing by seeing what they’re accusing others of doing.

Elderly people as well as women with children also attended the congregation. They carried flags and raised slogans in support of the JI’s manifesto, and condemned the US and anti-Islamic forces. He said the US also wanted to impose its decision about Kashmir on Pakistan, and its allies want to declare Pakistan as an unsafe state. “No Muslim is involved in suicidal attacks in Pakistan, and rather Blackwater (Xe) – a US private contractor – and Indian agents are involved in these incidents,” he said. Hassan expressed dissatisfaction over the lack of action by the government against India, and urged the foreign minister and interior minister to “take concrete measures against India for its dirty role in Pakistan”….
