The Jaish E Mohammad has been supported by the army in Pakistan. The outfit has received arms and weapons training. However after Jaish led by Masood Azhar made two attempts on his life, Parvez Musharraf had banned the group but the crackdown was only in paper. Not only has it regrouped itself with training centres all over Pakistan, the JeM is also believed to be responsible for the Pathankot Airbase attack. So far there were unconfirmed reports that Masood Azhar has been detained but today when the Defence Minister of Pakistan confirmed reports of his detention, there can be little doubt that Nawaz Sharif is serious about tackling terrorism in his own country. However a lot depends on how seriously the Pakistan Prime Minister is perceived is his own country.
