It is believed that Lakhvi might reactivate the links of Lashkar e Taiba in Syria and other militant organisations like Al-Qaeda in the middle east, according to a report released by Research and Analysis Wing (R&AW). In this report the RAW has warned the Prime Minister's Office (PMO)of an imminent threat to India and the Middle eastern countries as well. According to RAW, Lakhvi whose role in 26/11 terror attacks was prominent, poses a threat to the entire region and not only to India alone. According to a report submitted by RAW to the PMO, it says that the release of Lakhvi from Adilia jail in Pakistan holds a greater significance keeping in view his activities in the past in the region and in Middle east. it further adds that lakhvi had earlier coordinated LeT operations in Chechen Republic, Bosnia, Herzegovina, Iraq and South Asia, and sent LeT militants to Iraq to attack US forces stationed there. The report also says that the formation of charity wing, Falah-e-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF) in 2009, is just using it to further its influence beyond the region more specifically in Syria. According to the inputs from RAW, the FIF has established camps along the Syria-Turkey and providing humanitarian assistance. it has started to raise funds in the name of conflict in Palestine also. Report further says, that the FIF in Syria could provide ready to use channels for LET using its influence and it has been learnt in past too that the militant organisation has been receiving fund from Al Qaeda affiliates and trained fighters too.
