It is reported that globally designated terrorist Hafiz Saeed’s associate Maulana Mujeeb Ur Rahman Zamurani was killed by unidentified gunmen in Karachi on 2nd July 20202. Terrorist Maulana Mujib-ur-Rehman Jamurani used to work for Lashkar-e-Taiba’s Jamaat-ud-Dawa in Balochistan and was involved in the killing of many Baloch. He was also named for providing terrorist training for terrorist attacks in Jammu and Kashmir in India.
Mujeeb was Makaran head of Lashkar e Tayyiba (JuD) in Balochistan. He was named as Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) operative in Balochistan. Mujeeb Ur Rahman was involved in killing Baloch political activists, abducting them, attacking their houses, and threatening their families across Balochistan.
Pakistani media commentators have been supporting the view that Indian RAW was behind the Karachi killing.
LeT came into being in 1986-1987, when Zaki ur Rehman Lahkhvi merged his Ahl-e-Hadees militant group with , Jamaat ud Dawah (JuD), another Ahl-e-Hadees organization that had been established by Hafiz Muhammad Saeed and Zafar Iqbal. The ensuing organization took the name Markaz al-Dawah Irshad (MDI, “Center for Preaching and Guidance”). Hafiz Saeed, the current Amir of the organization, and its sprawling subsidiaries established LeT as its armed wing a few years after MDI’s establishment(1)
JuD’s Hafiz Saeed launches his political party Milli Muslim League, on 2018 to contest Pakistan general elections and Mujeeb Ur Rahman Zamurani was their principle fund riser.
