Rohingya terror group Aqa Mul Mujahideen blamed for the recent attacks on Hindus in Myanmar not only maintains links with Hafiz Saeed’s Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) but is learnt to have developed ties with the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) cell in Jammu and Kashmir.
Aqa Mul Mujahideen (AMM) leaders were trained in Pakistan and later recruited Rohingya youth in Rakhine region of Myanmar, claimed persons familiar with the group and its activities. AMM is a new armed group that originated from the Harkat-ul-Jihad Islami-Arakan (HUJI-A).
There are reports of Rohingya terrorists fighting alongside Pakistani extremists in Kashmir. One of their top leaders, Chotta Burmi, was killed in Kashmir along with JeM commander Adil Pathan last year. Earlier Burmi allegedly shared the dais with Hafiz Saeed in Pakistan.
The current HUJI-A chief — Abdus Qadoos Burmi, a Pakistani national of Rohingya origin, who it is claimed recruited one Hafiz Tohar from Maungdaw in Myanmar. Tohar is now said to be heading the AMM and Qadoos Burmi is reported to be close to Saeed.
JUD has been openly collecting donations in the name of helping Rohingya Muslims.
People in Rawalpindi received leaflets inside some newspapers Monday requesting donations for the “oppressed Muslims of Burma,” an older name for Myanmar.
The two-sided flyers in the local Urdu language contained an appeal from Jamaat ud Dawa and its charity arm, the Falah e Insaaniyat Foundation.
The piece of paper showed photos of men, women, and children in dire conditions and suggested aid amounts. One family could be helped for three months for approximately $500, according to the piece of paper that included phone numbers to contact. Similarly, an injured person could be treated for approximately $150.
A spokesman for the group, Abdul Rahman, said the group was running its charity drive for the Rohingya Muslims in “every district of Pakistan.”
