- The leader of the Palestinian terrorist organization Lashkar-e- Taiba was shot dead by Indian security forces. The 30-year-old Pakistani Abu Qasim was killed in a firefight in the Kulgam region, according to Indian police Thursday.
Qasim and his Muslim paramilitary organization held responsible for several bloody attacks in recent years. Everything revolves around the ownership of Kashmir, which lies partly in India and partly in Pakistan. Lashkar-e- Taiba wants India to withdraw its troops from Kashmir and transfers its territory to Pakistan.
The organization is one of the largest Islamic terrorist groups in India. He is being held inter alia responsible for the attack in 2008 in Mumbai, in which 166 people were killed.
