What are the possible reasons behind the mushrooming of new terrorist organizations in Kashmir valley? Discuss with examples.
The Resistance Front (TRF), is a front of the LeT, and is promoted by Pakistan after the withdrawal of Article 370.
The TRF had claimed responsibility for the April 5 incident along the Line of Control in the Kupwara sector, where five Army personnel were killed.
Security forces say there is nothing alarming about The Resistance Front (TRF) as all attacks carried out by the Pakistan-backed Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) are being pinned on the newly formed “seasonal” group in the Kashmir Valley in order to escape international scrutiny.
This is also a bid to give the group an indigenous shade and Pakistan has been smuggling weapons from across the border to arm them.
Pakistan is already under the pressure of FATF to come clean on terrorist funding else it would have to face severe international sanctions.
The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) is an intergovernmental organisation established to set standards and for combating money laundering, terrorist financing and other related threats to the integrity of the international financial system.
