New Delhi, Aug 31: When the Taliban took over Afghanistan, the Intelligence agencies in India had warned that terror groups operating in Jammu and Kashmir would get a morale boost. While the chances of the Taliban fighters entering the Valley remains remote as of now, the fact is that the terror groups such as the Jaish-e-Mohammad and Lashkar-e-Tayiba have been trying to up the ante.
Officials OneIndia spoke with said that they have noticed enhanced activity by the two terror groups.
The Taliban’s victory in Afghanistan is being cited by the handlers in a bid to boost the morale of the terrorists, the official cited above also said.
The morale has been down following the gunning down of 102 terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir this year alone. Prior to this Pakistan backed terrorists had enhanced drone activity, but the numbers have fallen drastically after new surveillance systems had been installed.
The chatter that has been picked up suggests that a handler in Pakistan is cursing one of the organisers in India about the lack of crowds. According to former Research and Analysis Wing officer, Amar Bhushan, one cannot negotiate with a mob. Bhushan told MyNation that no amount of coaxing is going to work as these are a highly radicalised bunch of people.
Bengaluru: There was always a suspicion, but now there is a confirmation with respect to the Pakistan link to the ongoing protests in India against the newly amended citizenship law.
The Intelligence agencies have pieced together evidence of the Pakistan link to the protests based on the chatter that has been picked up. There has been plenty of chatter for the past couple of months and these have been very specific to the protests.
