In Imran Khan’s Naya Pakistan, the Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed-led Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) and Falah-i-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF) have now been taken off the list of banned terror outfits.
This has been done as the presidential ordinance.
The Pakistanis said that a UN resolution to that effect had lapsed, as per local media reports.
As per the list updated on September 5 on Pakistan’s National Counter Terrorism Authority’s website, 66 organisations have been banned in Pakistan.
But the organizations of the Hafiz Saeed is missing from the list.
Hafiz Saeed had challenged the former president’s ordinance under which his terror outfits had been banned for being on the watch list of the United Nations Security Council.
Hafiz Saeed contended in the petition that he established Jamaat-ud-Dawa in 2002 and cut off ties with his other banned terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba.
India has been pushing Pakistan to bring to justice the planners of the November 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.>
