Reports have emerged that Maulana Masood Azhar is dead. But the Government of Pakistan is yet to make the official claim. If the local media reports from Pakistan are to be believed, Azhar got seriously injured during the air strike carried out by the Indian Airforce. Masood Azhar was the founder and leader of the terrorist organization Jaish-e-Mohammed which was active mainly in the PoK. Several reports suggest that he could have died in hospital where he had been admitted after suffering from renal failure. These reports emerge in the wake of Pakistan’s foreign minister recently saying that Azhar is very unwell. He is unwell to the extent that he cannot leave his house, because he is really unwell, the minister had also said in an intervention with CNN. It is looking like a ploy by Pakistan to save the face, as till now, they have claimed about zero damage by IAF airstrikes, also latest information suggests that he had addressed a rally at Bhawalpur, just days before the Pulwama attack. Reports also suggest that he was moved out of Bhawalpur immediately after the Pulwama attack and asked to lie low.
