Jaish-e-Mohammed is a Pakistan-based Deobandi jihadist
terrorist group active in Kashmir.
The group's primary motive is to separate Kashmir from India and merge it into Pakistan. Since its inception in 2000, the terror outfit has carried out several attacks in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. It projects Kashmir as a "gateway" to the entire India, whose Muslims are also deemed to be in need of liberation. After liberating Kashmir, it aims to carry its ‘jihad’ to other parts of India, with an intent to drive Hindus and other non-Muslims from the Indian subcontinent. It has carried out several attacks primarily in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir.
It also maintained close relations with Taliban and Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and continues to be allied to them.
China said it was willing to have more discussions with all parties concerned, including India, on blacklisting Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar. Firstpost - Published Also reported by •DNA •Reuters
