The Taliban’s occupation in Afghanistan is increasing and the danger of deepening its war with the Afghan army has also deepened. After the US military left the country, it now seems that the Taliban are not even accepting the peace agreement with them. Media reports have claimed that fighters of Pakistan-backed terrorist organizations like Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed are in the fray along with the Taliban. With this, it has become more important for India to remain alert regarding Jammu and Kashmir. Hindustan Times has claimed in its report quoting security agencies that these terrorist organizations are active in Kunar and Nangarhar provinces of Afghanistan as well as Helmand and Kandahar. The border of these four areas is with Pakistan. According to the report, fighters of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, Jamaat-ul-Arhar, Lashkar-e-Islam and Al-Badr have also been seen in large numbers.

working together
Out of these, more than 7 thousand terrorists of Lashkar-e-Taiba are said to be active. These organizations have also made new recruits for Afghanistan and the military chief of the Afghan Taliban, Mullah Mohammad Yacoub, is working closely with Lashkar and Jaish. According to the claim, Taliban fighters are taking training at a Lashkar camp in Hyderabad in Pakistan’s Punjab province, in which Pakistan’s army is also providing help.

Pak intelligence agencies also
Their units of 200 terrorists have been formed, in which there are also 5-8 suicide bombers. Officials of Pakistani intelligence agencies are also working with them. It is worth noting that this report of nexus between Taliban and these terrorist organizations growing in Pakistan has come at a time when Afghan President Ashraf Ghani targeted Pakistan.

Ghani’s target on Pakistan
Ghani told the Taliban that if he loved Afghanistan, he would not obey the Durand Line. The Durand Line is a line drawn by the British between Pakistan and Afghanistan, which Kabul does not recognize. He also questioned whether the Taliban was fighting for the country or at the behest of some other country. Obviously his complicity with Pakistan is not hidden from anyone.

India has to be alert
The Pakistani army, intelligence agencies and terrorist organizations joining the Afghan Taliban can be worrying for India. It has already been discussed in many international forums that Afghanistan’s land should not be used to promote terrorism in other parts of the world. Peace in Afghanistan is critical to India’s security in view of the tensions with South Asia, especially Pakistan.
