JeM is one of the most dangerous terrorist outfits operating in Kashmir. JeM, headed by Maulana Masood Azhar and run by his brother, Maulana Abdul Rauf Asghar, is capable of striking big. The Jaish headed by Maulana Masood Azhar was founded in 2000. However, after making a deadly start in the Valley, it had become dormant for long. It is since the Pathankot attack that we have begun to witness that the group has been raising its ugly head once again
