New Delhi: Electronic intelligence collected by the intelligence agencies have showed that social media handlers of the “The Resistance Front” or TRF, a new terror group to foment violence in Kashmir, are operating from Islamabad city in Pakistan, media reports said.
The Resistance Front (TRF) is the product of one of the several efforts, often repeated over the past two decades by Rawalpindi, to give terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) an ‘indigenous’ face, and to provide Pakistan’s deep state, an alibi. According to intelligence sources, the outfit emerged as an online virtual identity, acting as a mouthpiece for major Pakistan-based terror outfits such as Hizbul Mujahideen (HM), Jaish-e-Muhammed (JeM) and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT). Thereafter, it has sought to claim a number of terrorist attacks executed by cadres of these groupings.
New Delhi: Outrage and distrust followed a report by Thomson Reuters Foundation which in a survey- admittedly based on perception and not scientific data- ranked India as the worst place for women facing sexual violence.
