Big Blow To The Pakistan-State -Sponsored-Terrorism: After Top Hizbul Terrorist Bashir Ahmed Peer, Former Commander Of Al Badr Terror Outfit, Syed Khalid Raza, Shot Dead In Pakistan's Karachi
India's western neighbor, Pakistan, is a nation that promotes terrorism as a state-sponsored policy to harm its neighbors in the name of religion and protecting its sovereignty. Terrorism was first promoted as a state-sponsored policy in the 1980s to deter Soviet invasion by the Pakistani state during the reign of Zia-ul-Haq.
After the Soviets left Afghanistan in 1989, all terrorist groups involved in Afghanistan were redirected to the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir by the Pakistani spy agency Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) to instill lawlessness in the name of religion.
As a result, India witnessed a slew of terrorist attacks by ISI-created terrorist groups in several states, with the majority of the attacks targeting Jammu and Kashmir.
Al-Badr is also a terrorist organization founded in 1998 by Pakistan's Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI). Al Badr's origins can be traced back to 1971 when Pakistan-sponsored Islamic terrorists carried out a pogrom against East Pakistan's Bengali-speaking population (now Bangladesh). After Pakistan's humiliating defeat in 1971, the group was directed to Afghanistan and later toward Jammu and Kashmir.
The name of the group has come to light as a result of the assassination of its commander, Syed Khalid Raza, in Karachi's Gulistan-e-Johar block 7 Area. Raza, the terrorist, was shot by two unknown bike-riding assailants in front of his home as he exited the garage. He died as a result of a single bullet wound to the head.
For eight years, Syed Khalid Raza, the terrorist, was the commander of Al Badr in Jammu and Kashmir, where he waged jihad against India. The latest incident occurred less than a week after Imtiaz Alam alias Bashir Ahmed Peer, one of India's most wanted terrorists, was killed in similar circumstances in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. According to Jamaat e Islami President Karachi, the terrorist was also associated with JeI Talba Wing.
Al-Badr And Its Funding:
The Al-Badr terrorist group was encouraged by the Pakistani ISI to operate independently from other ISI-created terrorist groups, like Hizb-ul-Mujahideen, and Lashkar-e-Taiba.
Although, the terrorist group was recently working under Lashkar for the targeted killing of migrant workers and Kashmiri Hindus in Jammu and Kashmir. On 22nd April 2022, two Al-Badr terrorist was eliminated by the Indian security forces in the Pulwama district for killing unarmed innocent migrant workers.
Al-Badr terrorist group previously fought alongside Afghan mujahideen in Afghanistan in the 1990s as part of Gulbaddin Hekmatyar's Hizb-l-Islami.
Al-Badr is a fanatical Islamic terrorist organization for imposing its fanatical interpretations of Islamic law in Jammu and Kashmir. In 2003, the organization warned women in rural areas under its control about the dangers of not adhering to Islamic precepts which means women have to wear a veil, give up education at an age of 14, and so on. This terrorist organization also threatens the India-Pakistan truce of 2003 and advised the Pakistani government to declare jihad against India.
All terrorist organizations fall under the purview of the Pakistani ISI, and these organizations are funded by the Pakistani ISI and government under the guise of Jamat-e-Islami Pakistan, another organization that falls under the purview of the same Pakistani ISI and Government.
Jamat-e-Islami openly solicited funds for its operations in Pakistan and Jammu and Kashmir, with no opposition from the authorities because it is organization comes under the influence of ISI.
Al-Badr was separated from the other terrorist organizations by the army to conduct operations in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
This group also fought against India in the 1999 Kargil war on the behalf of the Pakistani army and ISI. According to reports, the group's Chief Commander, Bakht Zameen, was directing militant operations from his headquarters in Skardu near the Ladakh border, where its terrorists crossed the LoC to target Indian troops.
India and the United States designated Al-Badr as a terrorist organization. India declared it a terrorist organization under UAPA law, and the United States included it on its list of 40 foreign terrorist organizations.
