Saudi Arabia and Qatar Begin Recruitment Of Soldiers From Pakistani Jihadi Belt Of FATA

Urdu Daily: Saudi Security Agencies Begin Recruitment Of Youth From Pakistani Jihadi Belt Of FATA; Qatar To Recruit Soldiers From Pakistan

The following report is a complimentary offering from MEMRI’s Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor (JTTM). For JTTM subscription information, click here.

According to an Urdu-language daily, recruitment has begun for Saudi Arabian security agencies in different areas of Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATAs), which are the stronghold of Taliban and Al-Qaeda militants.

The daily also notes that Saudi Arabia is likely to set up some kind of a base in the Maldives with likely assistance from Pakistan, while Qatar is about recruit soldiers from Pakistan. It should be noted that South and North Waziristan, the main bases of the Taliban, are part of the seven districts of FATA, which is situated along the Afghan border.

The Roznama Ummat daily published a report titled “Recruitment Begins in FATA For Saudi Arabia’s security agencies”; it features the following subtitles: “Youths skilled in firearms are given preferences; first lot of 75 personnel selected; monthly salary 75,000 rupees; medical and other facilities will also be given; 100,000 [rupees] will be paid after confirmation; will be deployed on borders with Yemen and oil installations – sources”.

“The First Batch Of 75 Persons Skilled In Firearms Has Been Selected”; “These Recruitments Are Mainly Being Done From Kurram Agency, Waziristan, Mohmand And Bajaur [Districts Of FATA]”

According to the report, “the first batch of 75 persons skilled in firearms has been selected. [Unidentified] sources told [RoznamaUmmat that these recruitments are being done by various private companies. In this regard, such persons are being given preferences who have ordinary education but are skilled in using AK-47, opening it and relocking it. As tribal people are trained in using arms from early childhood, the recruiting companies are focusing on the people of FATA.”

“The sources say that those who are being recruited are between 20-30 years old. The experts of the [recruitment] companies are giving jobs after testing their physical fitness and arms skills. Afterwards they will be given visas to Saudi Arabia, where security agencies will train them further. Contracts are being given to the selected candidates with a 2,500 Saudi Riyal (around 65,000 Pakistani rupees) salary per month for the first year, as well as medical and other facilities. After the one-year probation period they will be given permanent job with 4,000 Saudi Riyal per month, which is over a hundred thousand Pakistani rupees,” according to the report.

“According to the sources, these recruitments are mainly being done from Kurram Agency, Waziristan, Mohmand and Bajaur [district of FATA],” the report noted, adding: “They will be given leave to visit their homes after two years. Further enhancement in their job would depend on their performance. Those who show the best performance and prove reliability would be allowed to bring their family members to Saudi Arabia as well. The sources further said that they would be deployed at the border with Yemen, as well as in five other locations with oil installations…”

“After the arrest of the head of a bank in Turkey, it came to fore that the U.S. and other European countries have funnelled of money to people in Saudi Arabia in the name of democracy, and that this money was distributed in the Shi’ite-majority areas as well as in the areas of the oil installations [to cause anti-Saudi unrest]. Protests would be organized in the name of democracy, after which the Western world plans to increase pressure on Saudi Arabia,” the report added.

According to the Roznama Ummat report, “after being given all the details from the Turkish authorities, Saudi Arabia has not only taken steps in this regard but it has also decided to increase its manpower [in the security services]. That is why Prince Muqrin has been nominated as the Saudi Intelligence Chief… Prince Muqrin has exemplary relations with Pakistan… It was Prince Muqrin who played an important role in releasing Nawaz Sharif from prison and bringing him to Saudi Arabia [following the 1999 coup in Pakistan]. Beside that he resolved many issues between Pakistan and other countries.”

“[Saudi Arabia] Is Also Thinking Of Building A Base Consisting Of Three Islands In The Maldives And [Will Be Helped By] Pakistani Workers And High Officials”

The Urdu daily notes that Saudi Arabia “is also thinking of building a base consisting of three islands in the Maldives and [will be helped by] Pakistani workers and high officials. Earlier, India had announced [its intention] to give 1.5 billion dollars to establish a big base on these islands. However, differences emerged between India and the Maldives on this agreement and later Saudi Arabia announced it was giving five billion dollars after the agreement. It not only gave support to the Maldivian economy but scholarships have also been granted to 50 students there, both girls and boys, who will go to Saudi Arabia for higher studies.

“Besides, ten big masajid and madaris [mosques and religious schools] would also be set up in the Maldives and all their expenses would be paid by the Saudi government. The Saudi government would get manpower for these projects from Pakistan. According to the sources, after the peace agreement between [the Pakistani] government and the Taliban there is much possibility of recruitments on large scale from among the tribal people. The sources said that Pakistan would greatly benefit from these FATA recruitments. On one hand tribal people would get jobs; and on the other there is the possibility of 20 billion dollars of foreign exchange coming in annually to Pakistan.

“The sources also said that the Qatari government has already recruited many Pakistani tribal people to its police forces and now it is thinking of recruiting them into their army. Those who were recruited to the Qatari police were required to have a tenth grade education as qualification. Sources say that those who have been serving for more than five years in the Qatari police they now have been allowed to move their families to Qatar.”
