ISI and Hafiz Saeed hand in gloves to disrupt Assembly election in J&K?

New Delhi, Nov 3: Pakistani terrorist and the mastermind of 26/11 Mumbai attack, Hafiz Saeed is once again trying hard to execute anti-India activities. This time the chief of the Jamaat-ud-Dawa with the tacit support from Pakistan is planning to disrupt coming Assembly election in the Jammu and Kashmir. For that he has reportedly changed his den to the new location.

If the intelligence sources are to be believed then at present he is staying in the terrorist training camp of the Lashkar-e-Tayyaba in Muzaffarabad in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

The motive is to disturb the democratic process in the valley at any cost and for that reportedly all logistic supports are being provided by Pakistan's ISI and their Army.

It is well known fact that Pakistani leadership is baffled after they failed to score high on Kashmir front and the sucessful poll in the state would be a huge embarrassment for them. Though in recent times they tried hard by raking up the issue again and again but each time India replied them in the same coin. The US and the UK also have repeatedly said they will not interfere on the matter as it is bilateral issue.

From Pakistani Prime minister Nawaz Sharif to PPP chief Bilawal bhutto all ranted about Kashmir recently. But India didn't let allow them to score at all on the issue.

Probably, because of this reason ISI has asked terrorist Hafiz Saeed to disturb the coming assembly poll in the state. The Pakistan has even pledged to provide adequate firing cover and other supports.

Reports also say that Saeed has asked the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militant group to recruit youth in Kashmir who have been rendered homeless and jobless by devastating floods in the Valley, sources in the Indian intelligence agencies said.

"Saeed recently visited Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK) and asked the recruiters to motivate the homeless and jobless youths of Kashmir and POK for joining militancy after the floods," highly placed sources in the Intelligence Bureau (IB) told IANS, speaking on condition of anonymity.

"The LeT thinks it's the best time for recruitment as many youths have become jobless due to the floods in the state," the sources added.

Saeed, one of India's most wanted terrorists, is a major irritant in the already strained relationship between India and Pakistan as New Delhi has expressed its resentment over his not being brought to book for the Mumbai attack, which claimed nearly 170 lives and injured hundreds. Saeed runs the Lahore-based Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), which he claims is a humanitarian charity.

The JuD has been blacklisted by the US, which has described it as a "foreign terrorist organisation". According to sources, POK, spread over 13,297 square kilometres, has at least a dozen training camps of the LeT and the Indian Mujahideen (IM).
