The two gatherings have now been transformed into political fronts after military ruler Pervez Musharraf was all around the world constrained into prohibiting various jihadist gatherings.

The Pakistan Army has additionally effectively sent gatherings like LeJ to counter rebellion in Balochistan. Besides, given the jihadism since quite a while ago supported by the military, there are numerous supporters of against Shia fear outfits inside the Army positions too.
