New Delhi:   America might have placed Indian Mujahideen into its banned list of organisations, but the gesture connotes a mere symbolic importance for India and would not help to a great extent in curbing the activities of the terror group, experts have said.

According to the top officials associated with security agencies, America’s ban on Indian mujahideen will by no means affect its ability to operate.

Organisations banned by America cannot operate on its land, their accounts are sealed and people associated with the organisations are banned to set a foot on the American soil.

Since IM is an indigenous organisation operating in India and has never been active in America, the ban won’t affect the functioning of the organisation much, security experts said.

Though IM is linked to Lashkar-e-Taiba, it is noteworthy that Lashkar is already a banned entity in the US.

A senior intelligence officer said that Indian Mujahideen does not need any financial support from outside as it has carried out many terrorist activities with limited finances, which it gets easily from ISI’s fake currency supply network.

“As this group has completely originated in India, we have to fight it on our own”, he added.
