Washington DC: The Bush administration on Monday indicted Pakistan's military regime headed by Gen Pervez Musharraf for its continued support to insurgency in Jammu and Kashmir. 'Besides Harkat-ul-Mujahidin, the report by the State Department identified Lashkar-e-Toiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed among the key terrorist groups. 'Massacres of civilians in Kashmir during March and August were attributed to Lashkar-e-Toiba and other militant groups,' it noted. The report also expressed concern over 'Pakistan's support of the Taliban in Afghanistan with material, fuel, funding, technical assistance and military advisers, and the active participation of large number of Pakistani nationals in Afghanistan's civil war on the side of the Taliban'.
