The world knows terror masterminds Syed Salahuddin, Maulana Masood Azhar and Hafiz Saeed. But little does anyone know about their first chain of command. Dreaded terror outfits like Hizul Mujahideen, Jaish-e-Mohammed and Lashkar-Taiba have long been thriving in Pakistan, the breeding ground for terrorism. Pakistan, the epicenter of terrorism, has a long list of outlawed terror organizations. India TV tells you about the chain of command in the world of terrorism.
The Hafiz Saeed-led JuD is believed to be the front organisation for the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) which also is responsible for carrying out the Mumbai attack that killed 166 people. It was declared as a foreign terrorist organisation by the US in June 2014.
Even though JeM, responsible for the Pulwama terror attack, and LeT, responsible for the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack, were banned by Pakistan, heads of both the terrorist groups -- Masood Azhar and Hafiz Saeed respectively -- roam freely in Pakistan.
India TV gets you the most credible inputs on the first chain of command of Hizbul Mujahideen, Jaish-e-Mohammed and Lashkar-e-Taiba.
