On February 2014, India's 5th national security advisor Ajit Doval was seen giving away speech in Sastra University saying that:

  • ... India needs to go into the 'offensive-defensive' mode when dealing with a rogue state like Pakistan. India should tackle the problem where it originated ...
  • ... You may do one Mumbai; you may lose Balochistan ...
  • ... Either Pakistan give up terrorism against India as a state policy or India would let it bleed with the Taliban ...

In wake of the capture of alleged Indian spy, Kulbhushan Jadav, India had been accused of supporting and harboring terrorists.

Neighboring old-time foe Pakistan has long accused India of using terrorism as an instrument to fuel unrest in Pakistan's restive province of Balochistan.

India obviously denies all the accusations.

So my question is that is there any evidence to prove that India is instigating terrorism in Pakistan?

  • "Definite evidence" in these situations is not an absolute term. eg. When Kasab was caught red-handed in Mumbai attacks, Pakistan initially refused to agree that he was theirs.

1 Answer 1


Hindustan Times article Afghanistan, Pakistan and the F-16: Mattis has to hardsell these issues on his visit to India published in September 2017 say that:

On the other issue, as a former head of the US Central Command Mattis appreciates Pakistan’s indispensability as base for military operations to bring the Taliban in Afghanistan to their knees. But Islamabad has insisted that India’s role in Afghanistan be restricted and complained about the Indian support for the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) accused by Islamabad of terrorism in Pakistan. The RAW-TTP link was publicly revealed in April this year by its former commander, Ehsanullah Ehsan.

Mattis’ request that India moderate its support for TTP will put Delhi in a fix because TTP is useful as an Indian counterpart of the Hizbul Mujahideen, Lashkar-e-Toiba, and Jaish-e-Mohammad deployed by the Pakistan Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) in Jammu & Kashmir. Severing relations with TTP will mean India surrendering an active card in Pakistan and a role in Afghanistan as TTP additionally provides access to certain Afghan Taliban factions.

This means Indian government has a definite collaboration with some terrorists in Pakistan notably TTP.

  • "some terrorists in Afghanistan" — But the question is about terrorists in Pakistan.

  • @jwodder Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan = TTP. They operate on both Pakistan and Afghanistan. Jun 23, 2018 at 17:41
