From August 1983 to May 1987, India, through its intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), provided arms, training and monetary support to six Sri Lankan Tamil insurgent groups including the LTTE.During that period, 32 terror training camps were set up in India to train these 495 LTTE insurgents, Eight other batches of LTTE were trained in Tamil Nadu.Furthermore, Afghanistan security agencies supported the terrorist organization called Al zulfiqar since the 1970s–1990s ;the terrorist group that conducted hijacking in March 1981 of a Pakistan International Airlines plane from Karachi to Kabul.On 24 June 2017, Pakistani army chief Qamar Javed Bajwa chaired a high-level meeting in Rawalpindi and called on Afghanistan to "do more" in the fight against terrorism.A woman with her child recounts how her husband was killed in Afshar, west of Kabul.Hundreds of innocent people from Hazara minority were massacred by forces of Sayyaf and Ahmad Shah Massoud in this area in 1993 Shukria d/o Ali Mardan was the mother of four children and lived in Kabul. On May 22, 1993 she was on her way to Shahrara when suddenly a car braked to a halt and a group of armed-jehadi jumped out and dragged her to their car and in a minute disappeared.
Although the Indian Government banned the group, the LTTE continued to operate freely and continued to have links with RAW until the defeat of the LTTE in 2009.
Germany's Federal Office for Migration and Refugees said it was aware of the letters but that no statistics are kept on them.
Spokeswoman Susanne Eikemeier said that since such letters are not official documents, the weight granted to them is generally limited.
Afghanistan has been unstable for decades with rival armed groups vying for control.
