In the Media: EFSAS comments on Pakistan’s role in the Kabul Gurdwara attack
News agencies, meanwhile, have averred that Farooqi had earlier been associated with the LeT. That was crucial, as the bulk of those that joined the ISKP did so from the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) terror group, which was not favorably inclined towards Pakistan. The LeT, on the other hand, is fully backed by the ISI and has based its existence and activities around this crucial fact. Equally significant was the NDS’ disclosure that Farooqi also had links with the Haqqani network.
