Nearly 60 Pakistani Air Force personnel arrested for jihadist connections in past two years

This situation begs the question: how many other Islamist moles are embedded throughout the Pakistani military, security forces and government, to include those charged with protecting nuclear weapons and reactors? Given that Pakistan is a 99% Muslim country, and that their constitution is subservient to Sharia Law, and that the ISI is the Godfather of the Taliban, the stability of Pakistan is uncertain at best.

When push comes to shove, which side do you think 99% of Muslims will rally to?

The West must put aside differences and focus on repelling the global Islamic Jihad bent on dominating all of mankind.


Nearly 60 Pakistani Air Force personnel arrested for jihadist connections in past two years

Tiny Minority of Extremists Alert. This story corroborates an earlier one detailing a retired Pakistani army general's concerns about jihadist sympathies within the officers' corps. "Pak AF personnel with jihadi links spark alarm," by Omar Farooq Khan for the Times News Network, June 25:

ISLAMABAD: An alarming trend of Pakistan air force personnel being discovered and even prosecuted for links with terrorists has come to light after a news channel exposé said that nearly 60 PAF personnel had been arrested on charges of having terror connections in the last two years. Interestingly, this time period coincides with a spurt in attacks on security targets and the rise of Pakistani Taliban.

Of these, six were sentenced to death and 26 sentenced to three-and-a-half to 17 years imprisonment for anti-state activities. A top PAF officer, who is also wanted, is still at large, the report said. Action against some of the officers began during former president Pervez Musharraf’s regime.
More arrests were undertaken after a PAF officer, identified by the TV channel as Mushtaq, was apprehended. As many as 57 officials have been arrested from Kamra, Lahore, Sargodha, Mianwali and Karachi.
