Jaish, Lashkar pour vitriol against India while Pakistan’s economy falls


Jaish, Lashkar pour vitriol against India while Pakistan’s economy falls: Islamabad has prioritized counterterrorism operations in KP and Balochistan and hinted at a tougher approach against the TTP. Pakistan-based terrorist organizations Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LET) have ramped up attempts to recruit in India.

The JEM is also inviting young people to join its district-level gyms for physical fitness and agility in places like Karachi, Gujranwala, Sialkot, Peshawar, Muzaffarabad, Kotli, Narowal, Shakargarh, etc.

It arranges for young people who regularly attend the gym to visit the border or Line of Control (LoC) regions. So they may get acquainted with them and utilize them in future infiltrations.

The JEM held a seven-day “Daura Tarbiya” training camp in the Pakistan-occupied Jammu and Kashmir district of Ganga Choti from August 5 to August 11.

Senior LeT officials also delivered hateful Friday sermons at Jamaat-ud-Dawa marks and madrassas. In addition, as part of its ongoing jihadi training, the LeT rebranded Daura-e-Sufa as “self-defense courses.”

Let members have launched fundraising efforts in support of the recent floods. These organizations aid flood victims while spreading their ideology and taking advantage of the catastrophe to find new members for the terror organization.

The number of deaths related to terrorism was about the same. But overall security conditions in Pakistan worsened in August as the terrorists seemed to progress.

The rank and file of the organization are uneasy as negotiations with the TTP drag on and show little indications of progress. Even as other terrorist organizations bolster their positions.

The Pakistani government and the TTP maintained their ongoing political spat last month. And the conflict does not bode well for the nation and will hurt the economy, which is already in a rut.

Even if the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and friendly nations have stepped in to help. The situation for the average person is likely to become worse because of the conditions put in place and the soaring costs of necessities.

The IMF executive board authorized the transfer of a tranche of USD 1.17 billion to Pakistan on August 29. In addition to increasing the support with Special Drawing Rights (SDR) of 720 million (about USD 950 million).

It also authorized extending the External Fund Facility through June 2023. Bringing the overall assistance package’s estimated value to USD 6.5 billion.

The publication effectively catalyzes further finance from bilateral and multilateral partners. Providing much-needed budgetary help to address fiscal and external imbalances.

The economy of Pakistan would remain shaky despite the IMF tranche paid out. As its depleting foreign exchange reserves were just around USD 7.7 billion as of August 24.

The terrible floods, which have left more than 30 million people homeless and taken almost 1,300 lives. This will only worsen the country’s currency problems.

As a result, a slowdown in economy anticipate, including a potential fall in textile exports in the coming months.

Despite the nearly USD 500 million in help that bilateral and multilateral partners have provided. The crisis has added to Pakistan’s already limited financial resources. The floods expect to cost the economy of Pakistan more than $10 billion.

Imran Khan Niazi, the leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI), has charged with many legal offenses by the government. These include an Anti-Terrorism Act charge for threatening senior police personnel and a case against a female Islamabad judge on August 20.

Khan and other key party leaders got notices from the Pakistani Election Commission for rude statements.

In addition, the Toshakhana referral brought against Khan for misappropriating gifts received from the government is also heard by the commission.

Meanwhile, Khan has intensified his anti-establishment tirades at public gatherings. General Qamar Javed Bajwa called on the military to reassess its support for the present coalition government.
