Unofficial figures put that figure much higher, and Pakistan and the APHC leaders put that figure at over half a million.
The two groups India says were behind the 13 December attack on parliament in Delhi are Jaish-e-Mohammad and Lashkar-e-Toiba
This is a rapidly growing group.
It emerged when a former member of another militant group, Maulana Masood Azhar, was set free by the Indian authorities
in December 1999 after the hijack of an Indian Airlines plane.
The group has continued to grow and at present seems to have the support of a large number of religious seminaries in Pakistan.
India says it was Jaish-e-Mohammad who attacked the state assembly in Indian-administered Kashmir last October.
In the ensuing gun battle nearly 40 people were killed.
That led the chief minister of the region to demand of the Indian federal government that it launch attacks on militant
bases on Pakistani soil.
If there is an armed separatist group which has had a real impact on the militant movement in recent years, it is the Lashkar-e-Toiba.
It is the militant outfit of Markaz-e-Tawatul Irshad - a religious seminary at Muridke in Pakistani Punjab.
Lashkar has emerged as one of the most prominent groups that are involved in militant activities in Kashmir.
It gained more support because of its role in the 1999 Kargil conflict with India and later on by sending its members on
suicide missions to blow up military cantonments in different parts of Indian-administered Kashmir.
Lashkar's professed ideology goes beyond merely challenging Indian rule in the northern state of Jammu and Kashmir.
In a pamphlet entitled Why Are We Waging Jihad, the group defines its agenda as the restoration of Islamic rule over all
parts of India.
In 2000 its activists carried out controversial armed attacks inside the Red Fort in Delhi and attempted to assassinate
the Bombay-based hard-line Hindu leader Bal Thackery of the Shiv Sena party.
