HuJI Has Close Tes With Anti-India Terror Groups

According to the Long War Journal, HuJI was formed by Islamist extremists in Pakistan's Punjab province in the early 1980s to help battle the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. After the defeat of the Soviets in 1989, HuJI turned its focus to fighting the Indian Army in J&K. The group maintained camps throughout Pakistan. The largest camp, in Kotli in Azad Kashmir, had “a capacity for training 800 warriors”. As of 2002, more than 650 HuJI fighters had been killed fighting the Indian Army.
