Just back from a trip to Pakistan Administered Kashmir... Amongst the ppl I talked to was a former jihadi fighter... He told me he was born in Indian Administered Kashmir, but at the age of 15 witnessed a mass rape by Indian security forces, and that's what led him to fight...
I asked what he would do, if he were a 15 year old now, in IAK: "I would make the same decision as I made back then... but the young people nowadays are much tougher... they will bring death to India"
He said he understood the pressures on Pakistan that meant they could not get militarily involved, and why they had taken action against groups such as LeT / Jaish... But others seemed more frustrated... Might not be easy for Pakistan to manage fighters if violence worsens
He also said he hoped the Kashmir dispute could be resolved without fighting, but he felt another uprising against Indian forces was inevitable...
What I'm trying to work out re Kashmir now: Will Pakistan hold off from supporting insurgents due to FATF? Or will they wait until FATF pressure subsides? If insurgents perceive a lack of support - could that rupture their relationship with Pakistani intel services?
And: are PK intel services / militants currently thinking it's more politically expedient not to interfere with what will quite likely be a genuine grassroots resistance movement in Indian Administered Kashmir? Or do they think a successful insurgency needs outside help?
