In addition to Kashmir, al Qaeda has demanded the “liberation” of territories such as Palestine, the Levant, Somalia and Yemen. “O Allah, free all Islamic territories, including the Levant, Somalia, Yemen and Kashmir, from the enemies of Islam. O Allah, grant freedom to Muslim prisoners throughout the world.” The terrorist organization wrote on Facebook. Al-Qaeda’s message in Afghanistan praises the “Islamic community allowed by Allah.”
The key demand of the peace accord signed between the Taliban and the United States in February 2020 was to sever ties with Al Qaeda. But recent UNSC reports suggest that the Taliban and Al Qaeda are actively linked.

At the same time, several countries are evaluating that the situation in which the terrorist organization controls Afghanistan will lead to the growth of terrorist organizations in the region and this is a threat to security. Russia has also partially supported the Taliban regime, which has indirect support from Pakistan and China. India is concerned about the growth of the Taliban, who have taken an anti-India stance in Kashmir.
The government fears that attacks by terrorist organizations, including Jaish-e-Muhammad, which has a presence in Jammu and Kashmir with the help of the Taliban, will intensify. The government believes that the two terrorist organizations are linked. The public statement by the leader of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s party that the Taliban will help Pakistan “liberate Kashmir” was also controversial.
