About This Book

Interviewing nearly a thousand jihadis as well as military and intelligence officials, Jamal traces the conflict between India and Pakistan in Kashmir from its beginnings in the 1947 partition of India, to its connection to the CIA's proxy war in Afghanistan, to the explosive insurgency of the 1980s and 1990s, to 2008's bloody jihadi attack on Mumbai. Jamal argues that the conflict is a result of a secret campaign by the Pakistan intelligence services to finance, train, an arm militants, and foment jihad, and that Pakistan has helped to empower some of the world's leading terrorist organisations.
