Lakhvi was born in Akara, Pakistan . He is believed to have led military operations in Chechnya, Bosnia, Iraq and Southeast Asia. In 1999, at a three-day convention in Miridza, 30 km from Lahore, he said: “After Pakistan withdrew troops from Kagril and signed treaties in Washington, it is important to strengthen the morale of the people in Kashmir… The mission of the Fedayeen was to to teach India a lesson while they celebrate victory after Kagril. " Then he said the next target would be New Delhi.

In 2006, he asked permission to train LeT members as "live" bombs. Indian intelligence services accused him of organizing bombings on a railway network in Mumbai in 2006, which killed more than 200 people and injured 700. He was arrested after the attack on Mumbai as the main organizer (he called it a captured militant).
