The Mastermind of Pathankot Air Force station attack and commander Jaish-e-Mohammed is back with his threats to India. The ghost commander declared Mufti Abdul Rauf Asgar has given the threat to attack India with a terror attack bigger than Pathankot. His threats came to light after a footage has been accessed by India Today.
This is an exclusive footage in which Mufti Abdul Rauf Asghar who is identified as the brother JeM chief Maulana Masood Azhar can be seen addressing a huge gathering of people inside a mosque. The mosque is in Bahawalpur, Pakistan. He in his speech is seen saying- “People will again remember Pathankot and Nagrota.”
With this and only available footage confirms the hand of JeM in the attack of Pathankot.
Asghar threats, “I want to assure Jaish members that we are going to carry out an attack which will be bigger than Pathankot.”
He added, “I salute the martyr of Pathankot Abdul Qayum who was known as Major, a Pakistani whose voice reverberated in Pathankot for four days.”
Interpol Red Corner has issued a notice against Asghar in 2016 just after the attack of Pathankot.
The video tells us how the terrorist organization is running brutally in Pakistan. The video can be heard clearly that JeM is asking people for support. Although JeM is a banned organization in Pakistan. Jaish-e-Mohammad has been nominated as a terrorist organization by many countries including India, America, UK, and Australia.
The video further shows after Asghar comes out of the mosque giving threat full speech, Jihadi started firing gun and slogans blare out of loudspeakers followed by anti-India slogans like “India teri maut aayee, Jaish aayee.”
After the video released, Ex-deputy Indian Army Chief Raj Kadyan said, “The video accessed by Indian Today is an incontrovertible proof that JeM was involved in Pathankot attack. It’s an admission from the horse’s mouth. This piece of evidence should be handed over to NIA(National Investigation Agency) so that they can use it to nail Pakistan’s lies.”
According to Intelligence, Rauf performed publicly in the third week of December. Bahwalpur, where both Azhar and Asghar live, are considered to be JeM’s stronghold. Unlike terrorist organizations like Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jamat-ud-Dawa, it is very rare that JeM leaders came on the camera. As they opt for pamphlets and making announcements.
Asghar was also responsible for hijacking Indian Airlines flight IC 814 on 24 December 1999 followed by the attack on 13 December 2001 in Parliament.
Though security agencies have Rauf’s sound samples from various intercepts such as call data and audio clips issued by JeM, there was no visual proof of this footage. The lack of visual evidence against Rauf withdrew a large mix in April 2011, when the Chilean police mistakenly arrested Mohammad Rauf, a Pakistani citizen, for Asghar. It was only when the CBI team had questioned in Santiago, it came to know that he was not Asghar.
