ABSTRACT

Harakat ul-Ansar: Increasing Threat to Western and Pakistani Interests, August 1996   [open pdf - 2MB]

"Possibly in an effort to avoid being placed on the list of state sponsors of terrorism, Pakistan is withdrawing some of its monetary support to Harakat ul-Ansar (HUA), which the CIA describes as 'as Islamic extremist organization that Pakistan supports in its proxy war against Indian forces in Kashmir.' The CIA is concerned over HUA's recent increase in its use of terrorist tactics against western targets and civilians and its efforts to reach out to sponsors of international terrorism such as Osama bin Laden and Mu'ammar Qadhafi, who 'may further encourage the group to attack US interests.'"
