Pakistan freezes assets of Hafiz Saeed’s JuD, FIF

ISLAMABAD: The federal government on Wednesday issued a notification directing the authorities concerned to freeze the assets of Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) and Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation (FIF)  under the Anti-Terrorism (Amendment) Ordinance, 2018.

On Monday, President Mamnoon Hussain promulgated the Anti-Terrorism (Amendment) Ordinance, 2018 that enables the government to impose a ban on the entities banned by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).

He promulgated the ordinance in the exercise of the powers conferred by the clause (1) of the Article 89 of the Constitution in a further amendment of the Anti-Terrorism Act, 1997.

Following an amendment in Section 11-B and 11-EE of the ATA, the organisations and personnel banned through the UNSC’s resolution will stand banned in Pakistan too.

On Tuesday, the Interior Ministry placed a ban on terrorist outfit Jundullah.

A group associated with the banned outfit, Al-Harmain Foundation, was also banned on charges of collecting funds, pursuant to resolution 1267 (1999) of the United Nations Security Council’s (UNSC).

A notification, issued by the ministry on January 31, states that the organisation is acting in a manner that “may be concerned in terrorism”.

Earlier, the United States put forward a motion to place Pakistan on a global terrorist-financing watch-list with an anti-money laundering monitoring group.

The United States has been threatening to get tough with Islamabad over its alleged ties with militants, and last month President Donald Trump’s administration suspended aid worth about $2 billion.

Islamabad denies assisting militants in Afghanistan and India. A meeting of FATF member states is due to take place next week in Paris, where the organisation could adopt the motion on Pakistan.

        I know India is behind Terrorism in Pakistan and there is no doubt in it but people like Hafiz Saeed are making us a laughing stock. As said by Army chief that to fight for your own land it is the responsibility of only the state and only state can ask individuals like Saeed to help the state. The Pakistani state doesn’t allow Saeed to help the Pakistani state so Saeed should stop his activities related to kashmir

    Hafiz Saeed Has earned notoriety in whole world. His activities and brutalities against India are no secret. Hew lacks basic knowledge of Qur’an that he learned by heart. Allah says in Verse 46, Surah 2 An-Nisa, “God knows your enemies.” He as assured us emphatically that He is “Enough” for the Believers. Does this notorious Terrorist with his proven record against terrorism in Mumbai and in held Kashmir know these promises of Allah? Terrorism has no place in Islam. This notorious Terrorist should be arrested before he disappears and put to trial, together with another big terrorist faction. One might challenge almost all “Hafiz-e-Qur’an that they have little knowledge and understanding of this subline Qur’an.
