Head of Pakistan's Jamita Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) party said that more than 8,000 Blackwater spy presented in the Asian country that has been target of U.S. drone attack despite public condemnations, Khaleej Times said.
Maulana Fazlur Rahman has alleged the government was taking no action to stop their anti-state activities.
The JUI-F chief's claims are in total contrast to the repeated assurances of the government by prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani and Interior Minister Rehman Malik, that Blackwater does not exist in Pakistan.
"They are establishing mini-Pentagon inside Pakistan and the main target is to get hold of our nuclear assets," Fazl was quoted as saying in Karachi.
According to report, Fazl said that the time for talks between the government and Taleban was over and he could foresee the on-going military operation in South Waziristan a failure as the government used force instead of dialogue.
Last week, the reports said that US Central intelligence Agency (CIA) Director Leon Panetta has canceled a contract with the former Blackwater firm that allowed the company's attacks, loading missiles on U.S. drones in Pakistan.
Meanwhile, the former head of Pakistan's intelligence agency (ISI), Asad Durrani, confirmed Blackwater presence.
Blackwater, currently works under the name Xe Services, has been involved in drone attacks in Pakistan. Last Mod: 25 Aralık 2009, 23:40
