ISLAMABAD: Historic attack on Karachi airport has taken another turn when Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU) has accepted its responsibility and his Amir has released photos of attackers. Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has already taken responsibility of this attack but now IMU claims that all 10 militants who attacked karachi Airport were IMU members. TTP claims that this attack was revenge for death of TTP former chief Hakimullah Mehsud while IMU says this attack was revenge against air strikes of Pakistan Army in tribal areas. Photos released by IMU of attackers indicate all ar young boys in their early 20s and it indicates they are from generation that was born in Pakistan. It may be mentioned that thousands of Mujahids came to Pakistan from Central Asia during Afghan Jihad against former USSR. These people remained in Pakistan after the end of Afghan Jihad and settled in tribal areas. They married local Pushtun women and a new generation that is known as Pushtun-Arabs and Pushtun-Uzbek came into being.
IMU released photos of attackers is following statement at Uzbek Jihadi website Furqon:
On midnight of Monday ten brave martyrdom seeking mujaahids of Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan wearing their explosive-filled vests attacked very special section of Karachi International Airport of Pakistan which is not visible to the common folk visiting the Airport. The operation continued nearly six hours and our mujaahids destroyed many of the fighter jets, American drones and other military planes which were in that special section not visible to the passengers along with killing many security forces. In the end, these ten mujaahids who sold their lives for Jannah became shaheed as they were eager for it. Verily, all strength, praises and honor belongs to Allah.

“Agar Alloh xohlasa, ulardan (jang-jadalsiz ham) g’olib bo’lur edi, lekin U zot sizlarning ayrimlaringizni ayrimlaringiz bilan imtihon qilish uchun (sizlarni jangga buyurdi). Alloh yo’lida o’ldirilgan zotlarning amallarini hargiz zoe ketkizmas”.
“Muhammad” surasi, 4-oyat.
Kecha 11-sha’bon, 9-iyun 2014 melodiy yil dushanba kuni, yarim tunda Pokistonning Karochi shahridagi Jinnah tayyoragohining omma xalq ko’zidan pana bo’lmish maxsus qismiga O’zbekiston Islomiy Harakatining o’nta bahodir o’g’loni fidoiylik kamarbandlarini taqqan holda hujum uyushtirdilar. Amaliyot taqriban olti soat davom etib, mujohidlarimiz tayyoragohning xalqning ko’zidan xilvatda bo’lgan qismidagi harbiy qiruvchi tayyoralar, amerika josuslik uchoqlaridan katta qismini vayron qilib, hukumat maxsus harbiy kuchlariga qattiq zarba berishga muvaffaq bo’ldilar. SHuningdek, joni evaziga jannatni sotib olishni qasd qilgan ushbu o’n mujohid o’zlari niyat qilgan shahodatga ham muyassar bo’ldilar. Kuch-quvvat, hamdu sano va azizlik Allohning O’ziga xosdir.
