  • Pakistan may be recruiting Afghan terrorists to enter Kashmir

    Pakistan may be recruiting Afghan terrorists to enter Kashmir.

    Unconfirmed Reports are there; That Pakistan is recruiting Afghan Ex or current terrorist to fight in Kashmir.

    It seems the earlier reports of shifting of Jihadist objectives from seemingly overrun Afghanistan to Kashmir and India are correct.

    Days after postpaid phone lines were restored in the Kashmir Valley intelligence sources have said that Pakistani forces have started recruiting Pashto and Afghanistan origin terrorists to enter the border state.

    Intelligence assessment on the situation in Kashmir has revealed that there have been sightings of non-Kashmiri and non-Urdu speaking terrorists and this has increased over the past few days.

    As per latest intelligence input accessed by India Today TV, Pakistani state actors are recruiting and diverting Afghani origin and Pashto-speaking terrorists to Jammu and Kashmir.

    A meeting recently held in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa of Pakistan, where Pakistan army and ISI instructed terrorist commanders to keep their cadres to ready for fidayeen attacks on Kashmir Valley.

      The US on Tuesday said it supports a direct dialogue between India and Pakistan as outlined in the Simla Agreement, asserting that the "chief obstacle" to talks remain Islamabad's continued support to terrorists that engage in cross-border terrorism.

      "We believe that direct dialogue between India and Pakistan, as outlined in the 1972 Simla Agreement, holds the most potential for reducing tensions," Acting Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia Alice G Wells told Subcommittee on Asia, the Pacific, and Nonproliferation of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

      She said during 2006-2007 backchannel negotiations, India and Pakistan reportedly made significant progress on a number of issues, including Kashmir.

      "History shows us what is possible," Ms Wells said in a statement submitted to the Congressional subcommittee on a day before the hearing on "Human Rights in South Asia: Views from the State Department and the Region".

      "Restarting a productive bilateral dialogue requires building trust, and the chief obstacle remains Pakistan's continued support for extremist groups that engage in cross-border terrorism," she said.

      "Pakistan's harbouring of terrorist groups like Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed, which seek to foment violence across the Line of Control, is destabilising, and Pakistani authorities remain accountable for their actions," she said in a warning to Pakistan.

      "We believe the foundation of any successful dialogue between India and Pakistan is based on Pakistan taking sustained and irreversible steps against militants and terrorists in its territory," Ms Wells said.

      Observing that the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir remains tense, Ms Wells said security forces have killed terrorists in multiple encounters last week.

      "We are concerned about reports of local and foreign militants attempting to intimidate local residents and business owners in order to stymie normal economic activity. The United States supports the rights of Kashmiris to peacefully protest, but condemns the actions of terrorists who seek to use violence
