IS wants Kashmir under Caliphate, not Pakistan

Jammu, June 12: Islamic’ State (IS) members want Kashmir under its caliphate rather than Pakistan or militant groups like the Lashkar-e-Taiba, underlining the outfit’s dismissive view of Pakistan and groups it controls as compromised outfits that do not conform to its interpretation of religious law, said a media report on Saturday.
