    Jammu: Pakistan's spy agency ISI has floated a new terror outfit called Jammu Kashmir Mujahideen (JKM) in an apparent bid to camouflage the activities of the banned terror groups like the Jaish-e-Mohammad and Lashkar-e-Toiba, says a militant who surrendered after returning from Pakistan administered Kashmir.

    Liyakat Hussain surrendered before the Indian Army at the Line of Control (LoC) at Gotrian in Poonch sector on Saturday. He had come along with his wife and three children.

    Liyakat, who was handed over to the state police on Saturday evening, not only disclosed that Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) officers regularly visited militants' training camps in Pakistan administered Kashmir, but also said that it had set up a new "tanzeem" or militant outfit, police sources said on Monday.

    The outfit has been given a name that gels with Jammu and Kashmir, unlike the Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), which have pan-Islamic nomenclature. The two terror outfits are held responsible for many terror attacks in India and are said to be actively involved in terror plots in western countries. The two have been listed as banned groups by the US and Britain and their funds have been frozen in foreign countries.

    Liyakat, who was one among 100 picked up for the new group Jammu Kashmir Mujahadeen, told the police that the group had highly trained militants who had worked with LeT and JeM and Hizbul Mujahideen, police sources said.

    The police are still interrogating Liyakat, seeking more information on the new outfit, the sources added.

    Liyakat had first gone to the other side in 1999, returned in 2000, and after staying on in Jammu and Kashmir for two years, went back along with wife Khalida in 2001, police said.

    Not right for Pakistan to play this card over a disputed territory. We can't win the freedom struggle by having all our freedom groups and charities banned in the neutral world. Either send your own troops or stop fighting like cowards through forcing an inexperienced and tired hand (innocent Kashmiri) to battle such a permanently entrenched and enormous enemy. These guys are no IRA, if anything they are like TTP. Middleman "freedom" fighter, and not a genuine movement stemming from the source of conflict.

    There's no dispute, bro. You should stop disputing our territories and handle what you have. That would start an era of peace. The problem is that ISI is the ruler of your country and civilian government has no power to stop ISI. Kashmiri separatists were offered everything despite so much violence they've committed in all these years. The next step won't be so kind once we reach the next level of economic clout.

    The best option for Pakistan is to re-structure ISI that can have obedient to civilian government officials and renounce J&K. We've always been ready to walk the extra mile for friendship and this shows from our recent increased aid despite 26/11 just 2 years back. But you too should make some efforts and be ready to give us something in exchange of our benefit. Who knows, if you leave Kashmiri separatists supporting, our government might even help you rooting out your insurgencies? :feel_better:
