Hafiz Saeed’s Jamaat-ud-Dawah joinshands with fringe groups to carry out terror activities

ISLAMABAD: After Pakistan levied ban on terrorist organisation Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD, the proscribed outfit has joined hands with other groups to carry out terror activities on their behalf.

Intelligence inputs suggested that JuD, a front group of the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT, is using the fringe groups for terror financing and money laundering.

Pakistan is on the gray list of the FATF for the second time. It was first put on the grey list in 2012 and remained there for three years.

The FATF put it back on the grey list in June 2018 asking Islamabad to implement strict actions against terror financing and money laundering cases operating from its soil.

The JuD has been misleading the United States and global anti-terrordogs by using Jihadi ‘tanzeems’ (organisations who are not on the banned list to carry out its terror-related operations.
