Less than a week before Republic Day, Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Thursday chaired the Unified Command meeting in Jammu with top security force officials in attendance. The L-G carried out a detailed review of the security situation and operational preparedness of the forces.
The key focus remained on Pakistan”s strategy to “reactivate” old terror groups. Security grid discussed inputs by intelligence agencies that terror groups like Al Badr, Tehreek-ul-Mujahideen (TuM) and Ghaznavi force are being revived with aid of Pakistan.
Sources say that “This is a clever ploy by Pakistan to promote those outfits which had gone into oblivion to divert attention from terror groups like Lashkar and Jaish-e-Mohammed. This as Pakistan is under radar of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).
Under pressure from the international body, Pakistan’s anti-terrorism department has arrested and jailed several UN Designated terrorists including Lashkar-e-Taiba commander Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, and its founder Hafiz Saeed in the past few weeks. These terror groups are also looking to radicalise youth and induct them into terror organisation.
