Masood Azhar Seeks Taliban Support In Jammu & Kashmir

New Delhi: Masood Azhar, the chief of banned terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) reportedly met senior Taliban leaders in Afghanistan on Friday, and asked for their support in fomenting tension in Jammu and Kashmir. According to a report in Times Now, Azhar called on among others, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar – a favourite to head the new regime in Afghanistan.

Azhar, who has been granted sanctuary in Pakistan, had reportedly celebrated the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan in his article titled Manzil Ki Taraf. Ideologically, the two groups are supposed to be sharing the same school of thought in their interpretation of Islamic law. They both follow the Deobandi School of Sunni Islam. Azhar’s release from prison in 1999 was followed by the launch of Jaish-e-Mohammed.

Although speculations are rife that Taliban’s rise to power in Afghanistan would lead to a spike in terrorist activities in Kashmir, we have to wait and watch how events unfold. The Taliban have made it clear that J&K is a bilateral matter and they have no role to play in it, but Azhar’s parleys with top Taliban leaders is a matter of worry for India.
