Peshawar : Jammat-ud-Dawa chief (JuD) Hafiz Saeed and his aides have been booked by Pakistani court for terror financing activities and raising funds for terror activities.
Pakistan’s counter-terrorism department named Hafiz Saeed and his aides in their charge sheet of carrying out terror activities in the country using public funds.
Pakistan’s counter-terrorism organization also named other organizations and trusts involved in such criminal activities such as Al-Anfaal, Muaz Bin Jabalin and Dawat-ul-Irshad in Lahore, Multan and Gujranwala for becoming a hub of terror financing.
A total of 23 cases have been filed against JuD chief Hafiz Saeed and his aides. As per the UN’s compliance order all the assets and funding trusts owned by Hafiz Saeed have been frozen.
After tremendous global pressure and facing the heat from FATF (Financial Action Task Force) Pakistan has taken the initiative to pull up these organizations and trusts allegedly functioned by terror outfits like that of Hafiz Saeed whose main purpose is to carry out terror activities.
The alleged crackdown on the terror outfits was palpitated by global watchdogs asking Pakistan to effectively implement norms and standards guided by UN and the G-20 declaration at the Osaka summit in Japan.
Earlier it came to notice that Pakistan could face blacklisting at the next FATF session if it did not adhere to the norms of the FATF in the next session which is to be held in October this year.
