Lashker e Toiba has a new name in Kashmir: The Resistance Front

Last Updated on May 2, 2020 at 2:07 pm

Lashker e Toiba that is virtually running out of any top commanders due to their elimination by security forces, has now launched a new organization named The Resistance Front (TRF).

The organization launched on orders of Pakistan to create confusion among the intelligence agencies in India is not only working on ground against the security forces deployed in Kashmir but is also active in the virtual world and igniting passions of innocents in valley.

Interestingly many of the cadre that were recruited for the new terror organization TRF, that is a part of Lashker e Toiba, have already been arrested in joint operations by security forces.

Director General of Police Dilbag Singh said that the group has been created by Pakistan in the backdrop of abrogation of Article 370. He said that to ignite the passions in Kashmir valley after Article 370 was gone, this new organization was launched.

During the recent times, there has been a spike in terrorist related activities in Kashmir region. However it was actually the security forces including the army, CRPF and J&K police that were now not only intercepting the activities of terrorists but also gunning them down.

Three attacks in Kashmir valley during past two months were launched by terrorists against the security forces while 11 operations against ultras were launched by army and police. More than 28 ultras have been eliminated during the past one and a half month in Kashmir.

Baffled over elimination of their cadre and weakening position of Pakistan owing to abrogation of Article 370, Inter Services Intelligence decided to launch TRF to divert the attention of intelligence agencies.

Dilbag Singh said that Lashker e Toiba is the force behind TRF and local youth are recruited in it so that it could be highlighted as a local organization of Kashmir. “J&K police were able to arrest 12 terrorists related to TRF even before the group was launched in Kashmir” said Dilbag Singh.

Three terrorists who were killed in an encounter in Lower Munda of Qazigund were also associated with the TRF. Police suspects that the movement of terrorists in Kashmir has increased as they are planning terror strikes thinking that security forces were busy in dealing with the Coronavirus outbreak.

Forces have been able to eliminate entire top leadership of Ansar Gazwat-ul-Hind that is the Indian chapter of Al Qaeda terror group. ISI was now searching for a new chief for the organization.

Army is also keeping a close watch on Line of Control where ceasefire violations have been increased by Pakistani side to push the trained ultras into India.
