After the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir and subsequent crackdown on terror networks in the valley, the age old Pro-Pakistan terror outfit Hizbul Mujahideen withered away in the valley. Under pressure from FATF after being grey listed for terror activities, Pakistani spy agency ISI devised a new strategy for Jammu and Kashmir. New terror organisations sprung up in the valley, TRF being one the prominent ones. Remaining Hizbul Mujahideen cadre absorbed themselves within the TRF. In reality, the new outfits are offshoots of terror organisations Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jamait-ul-Mujahideen under the command of Hafiz Sayeed and Mazood Azhar and are operating in the valley under direct supervision of ISI.
