Declare Pakistan and Saudi Arabia as terrorist states — ICAT

via Press Release published on December 12, 2008

International Campaign Against Terrorism (ICAT), an umbrella group of
various non-governmental organizations concerned about rising
international terrorism, expresses deep shock, revulsion and anger over
the dastardly malicious and barbaric terrorist attack on November 26


on Mumbai, the financial capital of India. By this well-orchestrated
terrorist attack on Mumbai, Jihadi terrorists and their masters have
openly declared war against India, the largest multi-ethnic,
multi-lingual, multi-religious, and pluralistic democracy of the world.
Like 9/11, the terrorists wanted to shut down Indian economy, create
chaos and trigger sectarian unrest.  We note that this Jihadi attack
bore all the fingerprints of Pakistani Inter Service Intelligence
(ISI), Al-Qaeda, Lashkar-e-Toiba, and Jamaat-ul-Dawaa based in
Pakistan.  The synchronized nature of attack and meticulous planning
and commando style operation clearly demonstrates Pakistani military
and ISI involvement.  Pakistani government can not conveniently shift
the blame for this terrorist attack on non-state actors. Pakistani
government is criminally culpable for allowing them to operate without
imputiny from Pakistani territory. 


ICAT expresses heart-felt condolences to the families of 195 dead and
more than three hundred wounded victims. We strongly condemn selective
targeting of innocent civilians, a Jewish synagogue and a women’s and
children’s hospital where vulnerable patients were slaughtered by
terrorists. We salute the Indian security and police forces who laid
down their lives in the line of duty while trying to save as many
innocent civilians. The ICAT expresses complete solidarity with the
people of India in this time of need. We sincerely urge the Government
of India to take urgent, effective, tough and pre-emptive measures
against the Jihadi terrorists operating from Pakistani territory. 


ICAT demands that the international community and the UN immediately
designate Pakistan and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as terrorist states
because all international terrorist attacks have their origins from
Pakistan and financing from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The ICAT
further demands that the concerned ISI officials are immediately
arrested and extradited to India to face justice. The ICAT demands that
all international assets of Saudi Arabia should be immediately seized
and frozen so as to pay for its crimes against humanity and compensate
the victims and their families. The ICAT demands that the UNSC should
immediately declare terrorism as a war crime and as genocide and
prosecute the culprits under the jurisdiction of the International
Criminal Court at The Hague.
