Jaish-e-Muhammad chief Masood Azhar has called for jihadist groups to be allowed to escalate their operations against India, arguing that “a lack of decisive decision-making” could rob Pakistan of a “historic opportunity” to seize Kashmir.
His appeal, published in the current issue of the Jaish weekly magazine al-Qalam, comes amidst reports of strains between Pakistan’s civilian government and military over the continued operations of anti-India jihadist groups from that country. He said, “If the government of Pakistan shows a little courage, the problem of Kashmir, as well as the dispute over water, can be resolved once and for all right now. If nothing else, the government simply has to open the path for the mujahideen. Then, god willing, all the bitter memories of 1971 will be dissolved into the triumphant emotions of 2016.”
