NEW DELHI: A mobile application in connection to Pakistan militant community Jaish-e-Mohammad that was available in the play store of Google has been removed now.

The App namely "Achi Bateen" has been exposed as a platform for the purpose of promoting Islamic teachings. The App was downloaded by more than five hundred android users in the country.

"Achi Bateen" was an app that was used to host various Islamic preachings by the religious leaders that belong from Pakistan. The hidden links of the developers of the app were earlier exposed by media with UN-designated terrorist groups.

From the outlook of the app, it doesn't show an exhibition of open connection with the Jaish terror group. But the developers of the app made it available in such a way that it provides two links on their page which hold soft copies of various Islamic books written by Chief of JeM, Maulana Masood Azhar.

They have also provided voice recordings in the second link of the page of the developer. The voice recordings are made by Pakistani religious leaders namely Masood Azhar and his brother Abdul Rauf Asghar and Talha Saif, a close associate.

Along with copies and voice recordings, the page also contained major Islamic write-ups written mainly by Masood Azhar who is known with another name as 'Saadi', a fake identity. Talha Saif used to read out all the weekly write-ups and made the circulation of the audio recordings of those write-ups to his followers.

The operational head of the group is considered as Asghar, the suspected mastermind behind the hijacking of Indian Airlines flight 814 and the Pathankot terrorist attack.

On investigating the app through technical analysis in Innefu Digital Lab of Delhi it was discovered that the server of the application is connected with the data center of Contabo based in Germany. Tarun Wig co-founder of Innefu Digital Lab said there is something odd with the functionality of the app. He added that it was similar to the UC Browser Application of China which was banned in India.

The App can have access to the network location as well as storage of the users and can start automatically if the device has the capability to run in on the background. The terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad was recognized by the U.S Department of State as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.
