Jamaat-e-Islami-Jammu and Kashmir (JeI)

According to J&K Insights: "JEI J&K was established in 1942 by Pir Said-ud-din. Initially it concentrated on spreading the Wahabi cult of Islam and refrained from participating in elections. The Falah-e-Aam Trust was created in 1988 to run JEI schools following a ban on the JEI. The products of these schools were targetted by their Pakistan masters, exfiltrated to Pakistan, trained in arms and ammunition, and infiltrated back to carry on their subversive activity. During 1988-89, the Jamaat supported militancy only indirectly, but it got directly involved when, under the influence of Pakistan's secret service, ISI, it accepted the Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) formed in 1989 as its militant wing. The Hizbul Mujahideen assumed ascendancy among other major groups and mercilessly slaughtered the innocents until the emergence of counter insurgency groups in the valley in the later half of 1994 and their targetted attacks on JEI/HUM activists."
