Nationality: Pakistan;

National ID No.: 61101-9618232-1 (Pakistan);

Lakhavi is a top leader of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and currently serves as Supreme Commander of operations in Kashmir and as a member of LeT’s General Council.

In 1999, he explained the reason for fidayeen suicide squad missions in the aftermath of the Kargil War: “After the Pakistani withdrawal from Kargil and the Nawaz-Clinton statement in Washington, it was important to boost the morale of the Kashmiri people. These Fidayen missions were initiated to teach India a lesson as they were celebrating after the Kargil war.” He said that the next target would be New Delhi.

In 2006, he asked LeT’s members to begin training operatives for suicide bombings. In the past, he told operatives to mount attacks in well-populated areas.

Indian officials claim Lakhvi also oversaw Azam Cheema, who has been accused of being a leader in the 2006 bombing of the Mumbai rail network that killed more than 200 and left 700 injured.
