Terror Decoded: The Pakistan-Bred Menace, Jaish-e-Mohammad
On December 24, 1999, Indian Airlines Flight 814, commonly known as IC 814, in route from Kathmandu to Delhi, was hijacked by 5 terrorists and diverted to Kandahar in Afghanistan. One week later, 1999, Masood Azhar, a top commander of Pakistan-based Harkat-ul-Mujahideen (HuM), was released in exchange for over 150 hostages.
Azhar returned to Pakistan, but not to HuM. Instead, he set up a new terrorist outfit, Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), whose audacious attacks brought India and Pakistan to the brink of war on more than one occasion.
Asianet Newsable digs deeps into how this Pakistan-bred outfit evolved along with award-winning author, Yudhijit Bhattacharjee & former Deputy Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Subrata Saha (Retd).
