History of the organization
Lashkar-e-Taiba has been operating in Pakistan since the mid-1990s, according to official records. Since 1947, Kashmir has been a flashpoint for unrest and armed conflict. The result of bitter political conflicts has resulted in the deaths of more than 50,000 people since 1989 (Dill, 2012).
Comparison between beliefs and motivation of the organization with another terrorist organization.
Even while imprisoned or under house arrest, the administration of the ‘Lashkar-e-Taiba’ attempted to adapt to the ‘ISI’ orders, meeting with other associates to plan terrorist attacks and communicating with another terrorist amasses, all with the assurance and vigilant support of the ISI. In a situation where terrorist groups frequently betray their benefactors, there has been no evidence of such a group in this particular instance. Rather than focusing on tactical control of this particular terrorist organization, Pakistan’s intelligence establishment has consistently favored a strategic approach (Kulungu, 2021).
Past actions terrorist endeavors
Unlike many other Islamist groups, “Lashkar-e-Taiba has remained loyal to the ‘Pakistani’ state. Kashmir and Jammu, the group’s jihad ground, have been gradually isolated. Terrorists have killed fewer than a dozen people in that tense area in the last decade. Following the 26/11 attacks, the organization’s ability to carry out fear attacks has been hampered. When ‘Abu Jundal’ was captured in 2012, it was clear that Saudi Arabia and India were cooperating more. After the capture of “Karim Abdul Tunda” and “Yassin Bhatkal,” “Lashkar-e-Taiba” will be unable to attack inside “India.” Finally, a global investigation will hinder the movement and planning of ‘Lashkar-e-Taiba’ agents. Despite threats to shut down “Lashkar E Taiba,” it continues to operate openly in Pakistan. In the US Rewards for Justice System, Saeed continues to travel and speak at rallies across Pakistan. Several senior members of the ‘Lashkar-e-Taiba’ organization are accused of involvement in the 26/11 attacks. In any case, the slow legal process indicates the Pakistani government isn’t serious about justice. However, “Jihad” is central to the ideology of “Lashkar-e-Taiba.” Its current relative confinement will be difficult to maintain. The organization’s efforts to send terrorist spectaculars outside its previous operating areas are possible (Kaplan & Bajoria, 2008).
Present status of the organization
Verifiably, the primary targets of ‘Lashkar-e-Taiba’ have been Indian state authorities and structures in Jammu and Kashmir and Indian civilian personnel concentrations in major urban areas. ‘Lashkar-e-Taiba’ intends to launch deliberate attacks in order to exert influence over South Asia’s geopolitical developments. According to expert ‘Juan Zarate,’ ‘Lashkar-e-Taiba’ is the spark that could ignite a war between nuclear-armed notable adversaries ‘India’ and ‘Pakistan.’ ‘Lashkar-e-Taiba’ has demonstrated its capability to carry out bombardment assaults, coordinated strikes in urban areas, and even sea operations against military targets along the Line of Control in ‘Kashmir. Lashkar is a major association with different arms and needs, and its initiative is without a doubt partitioned over the amount of danger to take in the quest for fierce operations in India, especially given the solace and even riches the bunch’s pioneers appreciate from their untouched exercises inside Pakistan (Subrahmanian et al., 2013).
The country of India has a small number of intelligence agencies that keep an eye on the potential terrorist activity there. Internal intelligence gathering is carried out by the “Intelligence Bureau,” which is part of “The Ministry of Home Affairs”. The “Research and Analysis Wing” is responsible for providing external insight, while the “Intelligence Bureau” is responsible for providing external insight. An interagency counterterrorism effort is directed by the “IB,” much like the “CIA.” “The Ministry of External Affairs” has its own counterterrorism body, which is comparable to the National Department in the United States (Tankel, 2013).
