Pakistani Extremist Group Fire Shots At Women In Beauty Parlor
In less than 24-hours after issuing threats stating that unveiled women in India's state of Jammu and Kashmir would be shot in the leg, Lashker-e-Toiba militants fired shots at two women in a local beauty parlor. The owner and two women inside of the parlor located in Lal Chowk were hospitalized for treatment of bullet wounds in their legs and hips. According to The Times of India the incident is an attempt by Lashker and the Hizbul Mujahideen at "talibanising" Jammu and Kashmir. Lashker-e-Toiba is suspected of working closely with extremist groups in Afghanistan including those like the Taliban, which are aligned with Osama bin Laden.
