From 2004 to 2016, security forces believed they had pushed the Jaish-e-Mohammad against the wall. But in the past two years, every major attack in the Valley has had its fingerprint. The Sunday Express explains the rise, lull and revival of the terror group whose leader sits in a Pakistan safe haven with more than a little help from China.
In an exclusive conversation with The Indian Express over telephone on Saturday evening, Chaudhry said that organisations like Jaish-e-Mohammad are “dead” and seriously doubted their ability to carry out an attack of this scale.
"LeT's chief Hafiz Saeed (a UN-designated terrorist) continued to address large rallies, although in February 2017, Pakistan proscribed him under relevant provisions of Schedule Four of the Anti-Terrorism Act, thus severely restricting his freedom of movement," it noted.
New Delhi, Jan 15 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Friday said the arrest of Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) chief Maulana MasoodAzhar in connection with the Pathankot attack was all a media hype. Swamy stressed that there has been no confirmation from Pakistan and therefore media statements could not be considered factual. Meanwhile, Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit also expressed his views, saying the arrest made by Pakistan is nothing but ostentation.
New Delhi, Jan 14 (ANI): Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Thursday questioned the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over the rumours that Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) chief Masood Azhar had been arrested by the Pakistani administration. He said that this was a serious issue and urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take the matter seriously. The Pakistan Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) has said today that they have no information about Masood Azhar’s arrest in connection with the recent Pathankot terror attack.
