It maintains close ties with international Mohammedan groups such as the Moslem Brotherhood. the Taliban, and al-Qaeda.

Leadership Council on Wednesday, in a move led by Atta Mohammad Noor, voted in a majority to replace the current leader Salahuddin Rabbani with Enayatullah Shadab, who will now lead the council.

Based on the council's decision, the Jamaat party will play a significant role in the grinding of the peace processor as well as in the government, but other members of the council's leadership, led by Salahuddin Rabbani, see the decision as an Intra-party conspiracy and added that Rabbani will continue to his job as the chairman of the party leadership council.

Tensions have risen among members of the Jamaat-e-Islami party, led by Atta Mohammad Noor, after Enayatullah Shadab' replaced Salahuddin Rabbani.

"Cohesion is the focus of reform and reconstruction in the Jamaat itself, this decision will stand until a congress of the Jamaat-e-Islami party of Afghanistan. (In the meantime) one of the most respected and founders of party, Professor Enayatullah Shadab, will lead chairmanship of the Jamaat leadership council," said Abdul Hafiz Mansour, a member of the leadership council of Jamaat-e-Islami party of Afghanistan.

A number of other members of the Jamaat-e-Islami party council, led by Salahuddin Rabbani, have called the decision an Intra-party conspiracy and in a statement suspended council membership of Atta Mohammad Noor, Younos Qanoni, Kalimullah Naqibi, Hafiz Mansour, Abdul Shokor Waqif Hakimi, Enayatullah Shadab and Abdul Satar Murad.

"The Jamaat-e- Islamic party of Afghanistan, emphasizing its previous positions on the country's major political issues, considers yesterday's meeting a conspiracy and against the party's principles and the party constitution," said Waliullah Adib, a member of the leadership council of Jamaat-e-Islami party of Afghanistan.

Salahuddin Rabbani headed the Jamaat-e-Islami party after the liquidation of late Burhanuddin Rabbani
... the gentlemanly murdered legitimate president of Afghanistan...
, the former head of the High Peace Council.

"The day before, we witnessed the convening of the congress of the Jamaat-e-Islami Party of Afghanistan, in which the interim chairman was elected, which should have taken place three years ago," said Tawofiq Wahdat, MP.

Tensions between Salahuddin Rabbani and a number of members of the party escalated after an agreement was signed between President Ghani and Abdullah Abdullah
...the former foreign minister of the Northern Alliance government, advisor to Masood, and candidate for president against both Karzai and Ghani. Dr. Abdullah was born in Kabul and is half Tadjik and half Pashtun. He also held the meaningless salaried sop position as CEO of Afghanistan, while Ghani was president...

Hizbul Commander Riyaz Naikoo Killed
2020-05-07
[EXCELSIORNEWS] Riyaz Naikoo, operational commander of the banned Hizbul Mujahideen
...Party of Holy Warriors, founded by Muhammad Ahsan Dar in September 1989. One of the Pak sock puppets waging jihad in Indian Kashmir. It was originally organized as the armed wing of Jamaat-e-Islami. In 1990, Dar declared Hizbul as the sword arm of Jamaat. Hizbul murdered many of the pro-independence intelligentsia in Kashmir. After the organization was taken over by Syed Salahuddin Dar and several other ex-Hizb leaders were assassinated between 2001 and 2003...

...a disputed territory lying between India and Pakistain. After partition, the Paks grabbed half of it and call it Azad (Free) Kashmir. The remainder they refer to as "Indian Occupied Kashmir". They have fought four wars with India over it, the score currently 4-0 in New Delhi's favor. After 72 years of this nonsense, India cut the Gordian knot in 2019, removing the area's special status, breaking off Ladakh as a separate state, and allowing people from other areas to settle (or in the case of the Pandits, to resettle) there....
’s Awantipora. Naikoo, one of Kashmir’s most wanted bully boy, had taken over the Hizbul leadership in the Valley from Mohammad Yasin Itoo alias Mehmood Ghaznawi after he was killed in August 2017 in a shootout in Shopian’s Awneera.
Fox News adds:
Riyaz Naikoo, 35, had been on the run for nearly eight years, but Indian police and army soldiers received a tip that he and other rebels were hiding out in the Awantipora area in southern Kashmir late Tuesday and began descending on the region.

Armored vehicles swept through the area and military officials used earth movers to dig up several patches of land, including a school playground, looking for possible underground hideouts, residents said, according to reports by the Associated Press.

Troops blasted at least two civilian homes with explosives, a common tactic employed by Indian troops in Kashmir.

Government forces then began house-to-house searches in the area on Wednesday that resulted in a shootout between Indian and rebel forces, police said. In the ensuing firefight, two militants were killed, a police official said on condition of anonymity, keeping with government policy. He identified one of the slain rebels as Naikoo. The officer said Naikoo was the most wanted militant in Kashmir, and troops had conducted dozens of operations to get him.

The BBC reported that eight security personnel were also killed in two separate attacks.

In accordance with new government policy, authorities did not hand over the bodies of the two slain rebels to their families and instead, they were buried in a remote mountainous graveyard about 62 miles away from their slaying, which has also happened to be Naikoo's native village.

India and Pakistan have long fought over Kashmir with both sides claiming the territory as their own and the fighting in the mountainous region between the two nations has led to nearly 70,000 civilian and military casualties on both sides.

Naikoo, a famed mathematician, rose to power succeeding Burhan Wani, who was killed by security forces in 2016. Naikoo was successful in uniting the rebels, who were previously split into factions.

Anti-India protests ensued in the streets of Kashmir during the military excursion against Naikoo, and officials cut mobile and internet service in an effort to stop protestors from gathering.

Government forces fired bullets, shotgun pellets and teargas at a large anti-India protest that hit the streets and threw stones at the troops shortly after the news of the rebel leader's killing spread. At least a dozen civilians were injured in the clashes, locals and medics said. One among the injured was critical with a gunfire injury.

India has stepped up its counterinsurgency operations across Kashmir in recent months during a coronavirus lockdown. Militants have also continued their attacks on government forces and alleged informants. More than two dozen militants and about a dozen Indian troops were killed in April, the most in any month since August 2019, when India revoked the region’s semi-autonomous status and statehood and imposed direct federal rule.

Jihad Mother of San Bernardino Mass Murdering Terrorist Pleads GUILTY to Destroying Evidence

[GellerReport] Why? She should get a life sentence, instead she made a deal for 18 months. According to her plea agreement, after Shareef
... Rafia Sultana Shareef, also known as Rafia Farook, she divorced ISIS killer Syed Rizwan Farook‘s dad for not being pious enough, and was a member in good standing of the notoriously jihadi-linked Islamic Circle of North America, a subsidiary of Pakistan’s Jamaat-e-Islami and yet another tentacle of Sultan Recep Tayip Erdogan I’s virtual neo-Ottoman empire...
learned that law enforcement had identified her son as a suspect in the attack, she went into his bedroom, "grabbed at least one document that appeared to be a map, and fed it into a shredder," the U.S. attorney’s office said.

Prosecutors say the mother of an Islamic terrorist who murdered 14 people in a 2015 Muslim terrorist attack on a Christmas party in California has agreed to plead guilty to destroying evidence by shredding a map her son may have used to plan the massacre.

"Shareef admitted that she knew her son had produced the document, and she believed it was directly related to his planning of the IRC attack," the statement said.

LEST WE FORGET, TERROR-TIED GROUP CAIR (WITH ENEMEDIA COMPLICITY) PROVIDED COVER FOR THE FAMILY IN THE WAKE OF THE MASS JIHAD SLAUGHTER.

She should have been striped of her citizenship and sent packing with a permanent ban on stepping foot in our country. CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood need to go too.

He said the government should make preemptive strike to thwart the designs of enemy against Pakistain. He demanded that the government announce clear roadmap for the liberation of Kashmir from Indian yoke.

According to the sources, all the 14 members of Taliban’s political office in Qatar, including Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, head of Qatar office and deputy leader of the group, have been removed from the UN blacklist for nine months.

, Amir Khan Muttaqi, Qari Din Mohammad, Zahidullah Ahmadzai and Mawlawi Ziaurrahman Madani are also among those who have been removed from the UN blacklist, the sources said.

"This issue (removing names from UN blacklist) was discussed in the first meeting as well, but the Americans were making the excuse that for removing the names, the agreement of the Afghan government is needed. But this time, it is clear that the Americans have made the move, after their 16-day meeting (in Qatar), to reach an agreement," said Nazar Mohammad Mutmaen, a political analyst familiar with Qatar talks.

The Afghan government and the UN have not commented on the report.

Iqbal Khyber, head of People’s Peace Movement said that lifting sanctions on the Taliban’s senior members will help the peace talks.

"This will not only facilitate the peace talks but will also create trust between the two sides," said Khyber.

This comes as the US Special Envoy for Afghan peace Zalmay Khalilzad and his team are expected to start a new round of talks with the Taliban in Qatar later this month. Khalilzad so far has held five rounds of talks with the Taliban which according to him, these meetings have been "productive".

leadership and member of the newly-established Reconciliation Leadership Council, said the working committees of the council have not reached an agreement about the members of the delegation that will attend the Qatar meeting ‐ scheduled for April 19.

"So far, they have not agreed on a list. The government was trying to have more delegates (in the team), but the politicians were not accepting it," Khan said.

The intra-Afghan talks, between the Afghan government, Afghan politicians and the Taliban, is scheduled for April 19 to 21. Initially, the talks were scheduled for April 14, but the Reconciliation Leadership Council on Wednesday said the meeting has been postponed.

This comes as the Taliban announced their spring offensive on Friday morning which is entitled Operation al-Fatha - which means "victory" in Arabic. The group said in a statement that the offensive will be conducted across Afghanistan with the aim of "eradicating occupation" and "cleansing our Moslem homeland from invasion and corruption".

Hours after Taliban announced their so-called spring offensive, a front man of the Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan, Dave Butler, said the coalition forces will continue to support the Afghan forces in the fight against the Taliban as the group has chosen violence despite a "tremendous" opportunity for peace.
