Azhar hidden in bomb shelter; Pakistan tells world he’s disappeared

While the sentencing of Hafiz Saeed is a bluff, Pakistan has not done even that much in the case of Masood Azhar and Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi

Power Grid says fear of tripping at 9:09 PM on 5 April baseless

Once the Ministry of Power made its statement, the critics cut a sorry figure, with politicians asking why the prime minister's statements call for clarifications and 'experts' saying this was avoidable

Terrorist links of Tablighi Jamaat include Masood Azhar, Osama bin Laden

Maulana Masood Azhar, the founder of the terrorist group Harkat ul Mujahideen which underwent several name changes to finally become Jaish-e-Mohammed, is not only a member of the Tablighi Jamaat but also a once close associate of Osama bin Laden

While Pakistan wanted the world to believe Maulana Masood Azhar, the head of terrorist organization Jaish-e-Mohammed, had disappeared, Indian agencies have found he is hiding under tight security on the Railway Link Road of his terror headquarters in Bahawalpur. The Government of Pakistan still insists it is not aware of Azhar’s whereabouts!

Azhar is living in a house which is, in effect, a bomb shelter. Pakistan has dug him into that hole in the fear of another Balakot-like Indian airstrike.

The agencies have come to know of the other three bases of Masood Azhar, which are in the same province. They are located in the Kaiser Colony of Bahawalpur, Madrasa Bilal Habshi in Bannu of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and the Madarsa Masjid-e-Lukman of Lucky Marwat.

This information also becomes relevant because the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) is to meet in Paris on Sunday. According to sources, Pakistan will claim on the crucial day in the Paris meeting that Masood Azhar is still missing!

India had handed over a dossier of evidence to Pakistan following the Pulwama attack Jaish had carried out in February last year. According to it, one of the mobile numbers found during the investigation of the terror attack on the Pathankot airbase in 2016 was directly linked to the Bahawalpur terror factory of the maulana.

Azhar is the mastermind of many terrorist incidents in India. According to intelligence sources, Azhar’s health is in bad shape these days because of which his brother Abdul Rauf Asgar has taken the charge of the terrorist organisation Jaish.

Whereas a Pakistani court last week sentenced Hafiz Saeed and his associates of terrorist financing group Jamaat-ud-Dawa to five and a half years, the Islamic country is facing international criticism for not taking adequate action against the mastermind of Mumbai attacks and India’s most wanted terrorists Masood Azhar and Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi.

According to Indian intelligence agencies as well as Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Azhar is suffering from a serious illness.
