Shahid Mahmood has been a longstanding senior Lashkar-e Tayyiba (LeT) member based in Karachi, Pakistan, and has been affiliated with the group since at least 2007.
In August 2013, Mahmood was identified as a LeT publications wing member.
In 2014, Mahmood was the leader of Falah-i-Insaniat Foundation (FIF) in Karachi.
Since, June 2015 through at least June 2016, Mahmood served as the vice chairman of FIF, a humanitarian and fundraising arm of LeT.
Since at least 2012, Mahmood has routinely traveled overseas and worked with international organizations on behalf of LeT to conduct business for the group in FIF’s name. For example, when acting as the head of FIF in Karachi, Mahmood traveled to Bangladesh to distribute funds to a Burmese migrant camp for the purpose of facilitating LeT recruitment.
In August 2012, Mahmood, while in charge of the Sindh, Pakistan chapter of FIF, led a LeT delegation to Burma, and in mid-2014, he traveled to Syria and Turkey and was subsequently appointed to lead FIF efforts in both countries. Mahmood has also traveled to Bangladesh and Gaza on behalf of FIF.
He was previously part of LeT’s overseas operations team led by Sajjid Mir.
While part of LeT’s operations team, Mahmood’s areas of responsibility included Saudi Arabia and Bangladesh.
In August 2013, Mahmood was instructed to forge covert links with Islamic organizations in Bangladesh and Burma, and as of late 2011, Mahmood claimed that LeT’s primary concern should be attacking India and America.
