J&K terrorists re-grouping in Pakistan: Report

April 27, 2008 15:58 IST

Pakistan-based terrorist outfits operating in Jammu and Kashmir [Images] have started re-grouping themselves, especially in the port city of Karachi.

According to Pakistani newspaper Daily Times, outfits like Harkat-ul-Mujahideen, Hizbul Mujahideen and Al-Badr have established new offices in the port city and have carried out wall-writing, hoisted flags and displayed posters to inform the public about their activities, including gatherings in mosques in Karachi.

The banned terrorist outfits were active under new names and they recently held large rallies in Karachi, the paper said.

Harkat-ul-Mujahideen has moved its base from Islamabad to the outskirts of Rawalpindi, and is likely to rename itself as Insarul Ummah. The Jaish-e-Muhammad leadership is in the process of finalising a new name for the outfit.

Harkat-e-Jihad Islami is holding a gathering on May 4 in Kotli of Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir. The United Jihad Council led by Hizbul Mujahideen also held a meeting in order to discuss a new strategy, the paper said, adding that these organisations were expected to be re-active by mid-May.

The HuM has also issued an appeal to the general public on its website for donations and furnished the address of Muslim Commercial Bank's Shershah Branch in Karachi as the place for depositing the money.
