National Investigation Agency Inspector General Sanjeev Kumar Singh today announced the arrest of hardcore terrorist from Pakistan Bahadur Ali, who was enrolled by the Jamaat-ud-Dawa and trained by LeT before he was guided into the Indian territory by Pakistani Army personnel on a mission to mingle with the people in Kashmir and create chaos in that state and commit terrorist attacks in different parts of India.

The NIA IG told media persons that “Bahadur Ali was directed to take advantage of the prevailing situation in Kashmir.

ISIL recruiting youth in Afghanistan, training kids to kill

Newsroom24x7 Desk

isil terrorist schoolKabul/ Islamabad/New Delhi: Coinciding with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Kabul visit to inaugurate the Parliament complex built with Indian help, which was followed by his surprise visit to Lahore to greet his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif on his Birthday there is news of increasing chaos in Afghanistan, where it has been reported that the ISIL has set up terrorist schools and children as young as 3-years were being trained to kill.

RT (Russian Television) today reported that Taliban defections to ISIL are on the rise after the US-led combat troops began pulling out from Afghanistan.

Kabul based journalist of New York Times Ahmad Shakib has also reported about ISIL’s Afghan radio station located in the Nangarhar Province near Kabul and close to the Pakistan Border.

This radio station is working overtime and spreading terrorist propaganda to enroll the youth into the ISIL ranks.

Reports point out that the ISIL, which is under pressure when it comes to smuggling oil from territories under its control in Syria and Iraq, wants to control the money spinning activity of heroin production and trafficking in Afghanistan and also expand its network in Central Asia.

The latest reports about ISIL activities in Afghanistan has added another dimension to the security environment in the region which has been reeling under the impact of the militant groups, especially the Taliban. Some of these militant groups that are said to be supported by the Pak ISI have been involved continuously in acts of terrorism in Kashmir.

Hardline violent groups like al Qaeda, Pak Taliban and the Afghan Taliban that had fled Afghanistan after the US controlled troops took control of their territory 14 years ago had merged with the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), which later came to be known as the Pak-Taliban when the US had started mounting pressure on Pakistan for coordinated action in the war against terror after 9/11.

The militants network, with several hundred thousand members, is now deeply entrenched in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) and the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa area. The Pak Taliban has also made deep inroads in Baluchistan. The Haqqani group, which is part of the militant network is supposed to be a non-state arm of the ISI.

Then we also have the Lashkar-e-Taiba in Pakistan. It is the armed wing of Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JD), a fundamentalist organisation operating freely in Pakistan. Its founder leader is Hafiz Mohammed Saeed. Lashkar-e-Taiba is closely linked to the ISI and India has evidence that it was directly responsible for the Mumbai attack in 2008. Lashkar-e-Taiba is also active in spreading terror in Kashmir.

In Pakistan, the fight for control over natural resources in Baluchistan also turned violent in recent  years after the militant Sunni Islamist groups began targeting the Shias. Other parts of Pakistan were also not free from the violent impact of this.
