JeM resolved to continue ‘holy war against India’: Intelligence report

NEW DELHI: Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad, which was responsible for killing of 40 CRPF personnel in Pulwama, had resolved in a conference more than a year ago that its “Ghazwa-e-Hind” (Holy War Against India) will continue irrespective of Indo-Pak ties, according to an intelligence report.

Citing the report, officials said the conference organised in Okara district in Pakistan on November 27, 2017 saw more than 2,000 participants showering praise on organisational activities of JeM and the role played by its chief Masood Azhar, the mastermind of February 14 Pulwama strike in Jammu & Kashmir, among other terror attacks in India.

According to the intelligence report prepared on the basis of inputs from across the border, JeM resolved at the conference to continue what it called its ‘Ghazwa-e-Hind’.

The conference was addressed by JeM leaders Abdul Rauf Asghar, Md Maqsood and Abdul Malik Tahir.

Asghar said the Indo-Pak friendship and bilateral trade would not end ‘jihad’ as there were many youths ready to sacrifice, the report said. (AGENCIES)
