The Revival of Islamic Heritage Society (RIHS) is a Kuwaiti-based non-governmental organization. It has provided financial and material support to al Qaida and al Qaida affiliates, including Lashkar e-Tayyiba, Jemaah Islamiyah, and Al-Itihaad al-Islamiya. RIHS has also provided financial support for acts of terrorism.
In Pakistan and Afghanistan it is affiliated with Afghan Support Committee (ASC). The Peshawar, Pakistan office director for RIHS is Abd al-Muhsin Al-Libi, who also serves as the ASC manager in Peshawar. Al-Libi has provided Osama bin Laden and his associates with facilities in Peshawar, and has carried money and messages on behalf of Osama bin Laden. ASC and RIHS personnel, including Al-Jaziri and Al-Libi, defrauded well-meaning contributors by diverting money donated for widows and orphans to al-Qaida terrorists.
The Pakistan office defrauded RIHS donors to fund terrorism. In order to obtain additional funds from the Kuwait RIHS headquarters, the RIHS office in Pakistan padded the number of orphans it claimed to care for by providing names of orphans that did not exist or who had died. Funds then sent for the purpose of caring for the non-existent or dead orphans were instead diverted to al-Qaida terrorists.
When the U.S. Government first designated RIHS-Afghanistan and RIHS-Pakistan in 2002, there was no evidence that the Kuwait-based RIHS headquarters (RIHS-HQ) knew that the two branch offices were financing al Qaida.
Since that time, evidence has mounted implicating RIHS-HQ in terrorism support activity. The U.S. Government has learned that RIHS senior leadership, who have actively managed all aspects of the organization’s day-to-day operations, have been aware of both legitimate and illegitimate uses of RIHS funds. Suspected of providing support to terrorism, RIHS offices have been closed or raided by the governments of Albania, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Cambodia, and Russia. In countries where RIHS activities are banned or scrutinized by local governments, RIHS-HQ has developed multiple methods, including using different names, to continue its operations.
