Its objective is the merger of Kashmir with Pakistan. It is most noted for its involvement in the 2001 Indian Parliament attack, the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack and the most recent 2019 Pulawama attack. It is recognised as a terrorist organisation under the UNSC Resolution 1267 Al-Qaeda Sanctions List. Recently, the US administration decided to retain LeT’s terrorist designation.
