    Al Qaeda chief calls for unrelenting Kashmir jihad against India and says Pakistan cannot be trusted

    Al Qaeda's chief has called on jihadists in Kashmir to launch unrelenting blows against India as he also attacked Pakistan's army, ,saying it could not be trusted to liberate the territory.

    Ayman al-Zawahiri used a video statement to call militants to wage attacks “to bleed the Indian economy and make India suffer sustained losses in manpower and equipment”.

    The statement was an attempt by the group to stake a claim to Islamist jihad in South Asia after competition from Islamic State and other groups, analysts suggested.

    Militant groups have fought troops in Indian-administered Kashmir for decades, but violence has increased in recent years as Delhi has waged a heavy-handed crackdown against protestors.

    A car bombing in Pulwama claimed by the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) group killed around 40 paramilitary police in February, bringing Delhi and Islamabad close to war. Both sides claim the disputed territory in whole, and Pakistan's military has long been accused of sponsoring and supporting groups such as JeM to attack Indian troops.

    But in an outspoken attack on the Pakistani military Zawahiri said a history of “failures, defeats, corruption and treachery” showed they could not be trusted to free Kashmir.

    Pakistan has faced renewed international pressure to turn on its proxies after the stand-off with India.


    Raffaello Pantucci, an international terrorism expert at the Royal United Services Institute think tank said the video could be a reaction to Islamic State group's expansion into South Asia. The group is thought to have inspired the bombers behind the Sri Lanka Easter Sunday attacks that killed more than 250.

    He said: “If you look at the indicators of what is happening in South Asia, it is all quite negative. Isis is announcing groups in Pakistan and India. I think there's some degree to which al Qaeda are trying to stick their oar in.”

    Pakistan's military faced accusations of harbouring al Qaeda's founder, Osama bin Laden, after he was found hiding in Abbottabad in 2011.

    Mr Pantucci said: “I think the Pakistani's are certainly clamping down a bit. Al Qaeda has usually been one they don't mind clamping down on, as it is less strategic a tool than some of the other domestic ones.”

    It makes no sense for terrorist groups to lay claim in Kashmir when they are in complete disarray in Syria, defeated in fact, and can't even establish themselves in Afghanistan. There's a whole country between Kashmir and Afghanistan. I never see them asking for jihad in Palestine... so, what's the case here?

    To me it sounds like an agenda to malign the freedom movement as Terrorism.

    Severe fraud alert. This guy is really still around? And releasing clean cut high quality media since day 1?

    I think he is just a one-man "ngo" whose job is to provoke American interventionism.

    Or could be US's next game plan. Destabilise the region and achieve the following
    1. Excuse to keep forces in the vicinity to check China/Pak/Af
    2. Create anarchy in Kashmir, legitimising Indian potential actions on Pakistan/Kashmiris (their terrorists)
    3. Encourage ISIS/Al-Q to be based in PAf-Pak and greater Kashmir (Azad Kashmir/Gilgit-Bal) region and stop CPEC and reduce Chinese influence.
    4. Weak Pakistan further....attempt to take it away from china.
    5. Compel India to be on it's side citing security threats in the region...pull it away from neutrality/Russian influence.

    Just giving india an excuse to kill Kashmiris. Their cousins from mother Zion are doing them some favors nowadays. Expect several false flags to try and change world's opinion about the Kashmir movement.

    Ah the monkeys in RAW lack what it takes to control organizations like Al CIAda.
    They are just getting some favors from CIA and Mossad these days, otherwise no one cares what RAW is upto because they are only good at being a menace for their own nation more than others.

    Sometimes we make things too complicated for our own good. And I agree RAW isnt the best. I think ISI is way more proficient in intelligence becoz of the nature of work it has done, its involvement in various geopolitical situation and experience. We dont hear about any of the work RAW does in India. Most of the things we hear is from Pakistan. We will never know :(:(:(
