Jammu and Kashmir, the Jamaat-e-Islami , an active organization in Jammu and Kashmir, was in close contact with the ISI of Pakistan's intelligence agency . Not only that, they were constantly in touch with the High Commission of Pakistan working in New Delhi so that they could promote separatism in the state. Officials gave this information.
The most important member of Jamaat-e-Islami in the Hurriyat conference is Syed Ali Shah Geelani. At one time the restricted organization used to call them 'Amir-e-Jihad' (Chief of Jihad) of Jammu Kashmir. A senior official informed that this organization had made deeper connections with Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) so that it could provide arms to the Kashmiri youth, provide training and arms supply. His leader was in touch with the High Commission in New Delhi, Pakistan.
According to intelligence sources, Jamaat-e-Islami used to use the network of its schools to fill and spread anti-Indian sentiments in the Kashmir Valley. He encouraged the members of the student wing of his organization (Jamiat-ul-Tula) to go to terrorist organizations to make 'jihad'. The official said that it is not astonishing that the structure of terrorism in the valley shows a close relationship with the hard working activists of the Jamaat. There are many trusts associated with this organization which run schools to spread the archaic Islamic education. It has a young branch and also publishes many types of publications to spread its right ideology.
This organization was formed in 1945 as a part of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind and due to differences in political ideology, this organization separated from it in 1953. It opposes participation in the election process and tries to destabilize the established government by law. The Jamaat used to fear the Hizbul Mujahideen operated by Pakistan and used to work with the help of its members and the trust's money, so that he could keep his hold at the grassroots level. With this, he used to provide the Urgad land for the terrorist organizations in the Kashmir Valley and used to provide encouragement, new recruitment, shelter and hiding place and courier etc. to help them.
Another official said that the fundamentalist separatist JamaatUsed to act as an advance front of elements and formed the all-party Hurriyat Conference and also the brain behind Hizbul Mujahideen. Apart from this, they also worked with radical terrorist groups to promote separatist activities. Its telegrams were also spread abroad, from which they also arranged for the money. Its relations were with Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan, Jamaat-e-Islami PoK, Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh. It also spread religious animosity in the valley so that tensions arose with the liberal sects of Islam religion. The Central Government had banned this organization on 28th February. But earlier this organization has been banned twice. For the first time in 1975, the state government had imposed a ban for 3 years for two years and for the second time in 1990 the Central Government .
