JuSh, which used to be an affiliate of the Deobandi takfiri Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) before pledging allegiance to the ISIL or Daish recently, confirmed the Balochistan meeting between them and Daish leaders.
Amir Mir has reported in The News that according to the information gathered by the security agencies, an intriguing common aspect in the profiles of most of the JuSh members is their past association with the Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) and the IJT. JuSh, which was established by Ataur Rehman, was originally a small cell of 20 Deobandi takfiri militants, most of them in their twenties and thirties; educated from professional working classes and mostly belonging to IJT. Ataur Rehman was assisted in recruiting youngsters to wage ‘jihad’ by Karachi’s Dr Arshad Waheed, an orthopaedic surgeon, his brother Dr Akmal Waheed, also a neurosurgeon and Engineer Ahsan Aziz. They were not only active members of the JI’s Medical Wing, Pakistan Islamic Medical Association, but also had close links with Kashmiri Salahuddin-led Hizbul Mujahideen.
In short, modern takfiri terrorism originated from Afghan war that was hijacked by the U.S.-led West through its intelligence agency CIA and allied-Saudi intelligence who invented al-Qaeda and Taliban to advance their illegitimate and imperialistic interests around the world. Takfiris also defamed Kashmiri resistance to Indian occupation by hijacking the legitimate freedom struggle.
