In yet another move by the United States that only vindicates the stance of the India on the Pakistan based terrorist Hafiz Saeed.

The US has designated Milli Muslim League (MML), the political front of Hafiz Saeed-led Jamaat-ud Dawa(JuD), as a Foreign Terrorist Organisation (FTO).

It is said that the seven members of MML central leadership body have been designated as foreign terrorist.

In similar move, the United States has also added Tehreek-e-Azadi-e-Kashmir (TAJK) to the list of terrorist groups.

It is well known that the TAJK is a front of the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), which according to the Trump administration, continues to operate freely inside Pakistan.
