A former senior U.S. law enforcement official directly involved in investigating Fuqra told the Clarion Project’s Ryan Mauro that Sheikh Gilani is linked to Lashkar-e-Taiba (LET).
LET has been designated by the U.S. State Department as a Foreign Terrorist Organization since 2001. It is linked to Jaish-e-Mohammed, Al-Qaeda and the Indian Mujahideen. It is
primarily focused on Kashmir and targets India.[i]
