A US Congress report says at least 12 groups designated as “foreign terrorist organizations” by the US are based in Pakistan. They include five that are India-centric, according to the latest Congressional report on terrorism. The report, ‘Terrorist and Other Militant Groups in Pakistan’, released by the research wing of the US Congress, said the Pakistan-based groups could be broadly categorized into five types – globally oriented, Afghanistan-oriented, India and Kashmir-oriented, domestically oriented and sectarian (anti-Shia). The prominent India-centric groups include Lashkar-e-Toiba, Jaish-e-Mohammed, Harakat-ul Jihad Islami and Hizb-ul Mujahideen.
