Islamabad: Pakistan, which became an Islamic country after separating from India in 1947, is trapped in its own snare today. The terrorists that the neighboring country had nourished with the aim of destroying India, now they have started destroying Pakistan. The suicide attack on a mosque packed with people in Pakistan's High-Security Zone of Peshawar on Monday shocked everyone. So far 90 people have lost their lives in this attack while more than 150 are said to be injured. Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed responsibility for the attack. The TTP has said that the attack was done to avenge the death of Omar Khalid Khorasani. In such a situation, the question arises who is Omar Khalid Khorasani? To avenge whose death, the TTP bombarded corpses.

आतंकवाद से भारत को धमकाने वाला पाकिस्तान आज भुखमरी, कर्ज़े और आतंकवाद तीनों से परेशान है।
ख़ैर हम सनातनी है और इसमें भी वहाँ के लोगो के भले की ही कामना करते हैं।#PeshawarAttack pic.twitter.com/tDcNwjgaRp
As per the report, Omar Khalid Khorasani was the commander of TTP, who was killed by the Pakistani Army in August 2022. It was revealed through Khorasani's brother and TTP member Mukarram that they have not forgotten Khorasani's death and had executed the Peshawar mosque blast with full preparation. Khorasani was born in the Mohammad Agency of Pakistan. Omar Khalid's real name was Abdul Wali Mohammad. His early education took place in his village (Safo), but later he studied in many madrasas in Karachi. He got involved with terror at a very young age. He initially became a member of Harkat-ul-Mujahideen, an Islamic jihadist organization based in Pakistan, primarily active in Kashmir, where he began jihad for the independence of Kashmir. However, on becoming an adult, he joined Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP).
He was also active in Kashmir for a long time. Omar Khalid used to be a journalist and poet before becoming a TTP terrorist. Although there is no strong evidence as to when he joined TTP, he broke away from TTP in August 2014 and laid the foundation of Jamaat-ul-Ahrar. It was a terrorist organization associated with TTP. Jamaat-ul-Ahrar usually targeted civilians, minorities, and army personnel.
According to the report, Khorasani used to carry out terrorist incidents from the Nangarhar and Kunar provinces of Afghanistan. Jamaat-ul-Ahrar was the most active terrorist organization in Pakistan's Punjab province, which has carried out many terrorist attacks. The most horrific of these attacks took place in March 2016 at Gulshan-e-Iqbal Amusement Park. In addition, there was an attack on the festival of Easter in Lahore, in which more than 70 people lost their lives. The US noticed Khorasani's terrorist activities in March 2018, and the US State Department announced a reward of $3 million on him.
In fact, Jamaat-ul-Ahrar was associated with the TTP, but he carried out the attacks in his own way. However, later in March 2015, this organization joined TTP. In August 2022, a bomb targeted the vehicle of Omar Khalid Khorasani (45) in the Paktika area of Afghanistan. During this time, 2 more TTP commanders were present in the car along with Khorasani. All of them lost their lives in the blast. However, he had earlier survived several attacks by the Pakistani army. Khorasani survived the drone attack 3 times. He escaped the attacks in December 2021 and February 2022.

He used to sit in Afghanistan and spread terror in Kashmir. He was continuously strengthening his network to increase terrorism in Kashmir. This was the period when Jamaat-ul-Ahrar carried out several terrorist attacks in Pakistan and Kashmir, due to which the US announced a reward of $3 million on him. Khorasani was not in favor of any kind of dialogue by the Pakistani government with the US.
In 2007, many terrorist groups came together and formed a Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan i.e. TTP. This TTP is also called the Pakistani Taliban. It aims to bring radical Islamic rule in Pakistan. Pakistan is already an Islamic country, but the TTP wants to establish a complete Islamic state there with strict Sharia rules, as it is in Afghanistan. TTP was banned by the Pakistani government in August 2008. However, TTP's roots began to spread only in 2002. In October 2001, when the US forces ousted the Taliban from power in Afghanistan, its terrorists fled to Pakistan. After this, the Pakistani army started an operation against these terrorists.
In December 2007, Baitullah Mehsud announced the TTP. However, two years later, on August 5, 2009, Mehsud was killed. After that Hakimullah Mehsud became the leader of TTP. He also died on November 1, 2013. After Hakimullah's death, Mullah Fazlullah became the new leader. He was also killed in an attack by US forces on June 22, 2018. Currently, Noor Wali Mehsud is the leader of TTP. Let us know that, Pakistan's Taliban is different from Afghanistan's Taliban. But, the purpose of both is the same and that is to overthrow the democratically elected government and implement radical Islamic law.
A US government report says that the purpose of the TTP is to launch a terrorist campaign against the Pakistani government and security agencies and then capture power. TTP leaders openly say that their aim is to bring an Islamic caliphate across Pakistan and this will require overthrowing the Pakistani government. After Afghanistan and Pakistan, the next target of these fundamentalists is India, which they call Ghazwa-e-Hind and continue to conspire to bring down the whole of India under the Islamic flag. Terrorists and fundamentalists claim that all this is written in their religious books that one day the whole of India will become an Islamic country and all the people will be made Muslims. The recently banned radical organization Popular Front of India (PFI) in India is also working on 'Mission 2047' with the same objective, its aim is to overthrow democracy from India and establish Islamic rule.
