I have read the article of Abbas Nasir and I certainly want to disagree with various points of this article, I never expected from a journalist to show such immaturity in presenting facts, I hope this is not deliberately, so looking forward for correction from newspaper. First of all, IJT (student organization) is not associated with JI (the political organization) in any fact or backed. Its in the organization's constitution that it is nonpolitical. IJT follows some part of the literature of Syed Abul Aala Maududi doesnt make it a subsidiary of JI, similarly IJT follows literature of Dr. Israr as well, so this means IJT is associated to Tanzim Islami? No! Correction required here. Secondly, there is no such thing like "Thunder Squad" it was all the misalignment of facts to show the bad picture of a nonpolitical peaceful organization Islami Jamiat Talba, and I am amazed why these scholars never speak about those party funded terrorist of (MQM, PPP and ANP) who are been given death sentence by high and sindh courts, not to forget the 1981 PIA plane hijacking by PPP activist Saleemullah Tipu, on the other hand they write article on the basis of a "alleged conspiracy" which is not even trialed in court. Third thing, use of weapon is not allowed for IJT activists in any era, this is another molding of facts without proof, after this points I am confirmed on immaturity of write and will ask for the reference of this obligation, and if the writer is not ready to provide solid reference I will be looking forward for his apology. Again, I must say that I am not expecting such weak reports and blogs from respective newspaper website Dawn, such article will proof nothing but will start another conspiracy debate and several question on the authenticity of the other reports by newspaper will be raised. I rest my case.
