According to the sources, banned Islamist terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar has met with Taliban leadership in Afghanistan and sought their support in spreading terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir.
He met with senior Taliban leaders including Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, in Kandahar last week.
Masood Azhar had earlier shown his delight over the "collapse" of the "US-backed government" in Afghanistan and the Taliban's takeover of the country on August 15.
In his write-up titled "Manzil Ki Taraf" (towards the destination) on August 16, the JeM chief applauded the “success of mujahideen" in Afghanistan.
A message was being circulated among JeM functionaries at its markaz (headquarters) at Bahawalpur in Pakistan greeting each other on the victory of the Taliban.
The Taliban and the Jaish-e-Mohammed are considered ideological comrades in interpreting sharia, the Islamic law, following the Deobandi school of Sunni Islam.
