Fund raising in Rawalpindi for anti-India activities
Islamabad: Militant groups active in Jammu and Kashmir organised a massive gathering in the Pakistani garrison city of Rawalpindi and sought resources and recruits to continue their activities in the Indian state.
The two-day `Shuhada Conference` organised by Al-Badar Mujahideen at its centre at Swan Bus Adda in Rawalpindi concluded yesterday.
Nearly 1,000 people, including militants of Al-Badar Mujahideen and other groups involved in militancy in Jammu and Kashmir and Afghanistan, attended the meet.
Militant commanders, including Al-Badar Mujahideen chief Bakht Zameen Khan and Hizb-ul-Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin, addressed the meet and sought resources and recruits to continue their "jihad" in Afghanistan and Kashmir.
Leaders of Hizb-e-Islami Afghanistan and Jamaat-ud-Dawah also addressed the conference.
Bakht Zameen Khan said: "Some people think the Kashmir jihad has ended. It is not true".
Syed Salahuddin, who also heads the United Jihad Council, told the meet that "the American Satan has encircled Pakistan with the help of its 48 allies in Afghanistan".
