The Politics of CP is reporting that Sheikh Gilani, the notorious founder of the terrorist group Jamaat ul-Fuqra, is still recruiting mujahideen to fight against US and coalition troops in Afghanistan.
Citing the invaluable B Raman and the South Asia Analysis Group, and using conversations with Fuqra Hater, CP comes to the conclusion that
…Gilani, having an intimate relationship with elements of the ISI in Pakistan and others in Afghanistan, has access to covert networks of recruiters and operatives to mask such activities.
He quotes Fuqra Hater as saying that
Gilanis are well known in Afghani regions as well.
When I was working on the Bloody Borders Project, I discovered a town called Gilan, in Ghazni Province in Afghanistan. From then on I assumed that Sheikh Gilani’s forebears must have come from there, so it makes sense that he has connections with Afghanistan and supports jihad operations there.
