MUZAFFARABAD, Pakistan (AP) — A Pakistani official says a charity belonging to a banned terror group has dispatched an aid convoy for Muslims in Indian-held Kashmir.
Deputy Commissioner Masood-ur-Rehman says the Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation plans a sit-in at the cease-fire line dividing Kashmir between India and Pakistan if its convoy carrying ambulances, doctors, medicines and activists isn’t allowed to cross the boundary on Tuesday.
The foundation is a front for Lashkar-e-Taiba, which India alleges was responsible for the killing of over 160 people in the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attack.
Washington has designated Lashkar-e-Taiba’s founder, Hafiz Saeed, a terrorist and has a $10 million bounty on him. He lives in Pakistan.
Recent clashes in Kashmir, a predominantly Muslim region that is claimed in its entirety by both India and Pakistan, have killed at least 49 people.
