    Crackdown on Hafiz Saeed's charities kicks off, banner taken down in Islamabad

    ISLAMABAD: Days after the government revealed its plans to act against proscribed outfits including Hafiz Saeed’s charity organisations, police have taken down a banner of Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) and its subsidiary Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation (FIF) in Islamabad.

    A criminal case was also lodged against unidentified persons, responsible for putting up the banner for fund-raising.

    The banner was put up outside a mosque in Ghori Town in Koral police jurisdiction, seeking donations for the Muslims of Burma and Syria.













    Police action comes on the heels of a notification by the district magistrate banning fund-raising and all kinds of social, political, welfare and religious activities of the organisations and individuals, who are on the UN Watch List and proscribed or placed under observation by the government of Pakistan.

    Government plans takeover of charities run by Hafiz Saeed

    Fund-raising and other activities by proscribed as well as subsidiary organisations of the banned outfits have been banned under Section 144 in the federal capital.

    The Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP), through a notification on Monday, had also stopped all companies from donating cash to proscribed organisations and individuals mentioned in the sanctions regime maintained by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).

    Earlier today, Defence Minister Khurram Dastagir Khan said, during an interview with BBC Urdu, that the government’s crackdown on JuD other banned outfits was linked to the ongoing Operation Raddul Fasaad and was not taken due to mounting pressure from the US.

    Action against JuD is being taken with due diligence so that the future of Pakistan can be secured and ‘terrorists cannot open fire on school children anymore’, he was quoted as saying.

    However, those affiliated with the JuD deny its involvement in any illegal activity, calling the FIF an organised philanthropist group of the country.

    Pakistan had placed the JuD on the watchlist in 2008. The UN had placed both the JuD and the FIF on its watchlist in Dec 2008 and March 2012, respectively.

    Many many Pakistanis on PDF were criticizing Palestine for withdrawing their diplomat for attending an event along with Hafeez Saeed. Now if he was so harmless and represent your Kashmir cause why is GOP acting against him. I suggest before getting outraged, assess your country's intent first.

    I dont know much about his followers, i admit.
    But i know few days back some islamic organisation which was unheard of before took to the street and braught govt to its knees to change some law.
    So my broader point is anything is possible in pakistan.

    well as you mentioned you dont know much and you really dont know much that protest was in regards to some religious sentiments that were hurt but as you dont know its best to get informed if you want to speak about something its always good to know what your talking about rather than be vague just to score some points which isn't uncommon coming from indians in regards to Pakistan

    Without any evidence, the US would not put a bounty on his head. And the US doesn't play along with wishes of India. So, he is not running a charity. And JuD was the front of LeT. Another listed terror organization by Pak government. (Which the former president of Pak says government has links to)

    Yes, US can invade and do their sh*t. Did anyone take an action against them? All the Arab nations were mute over the issue. That gives some legitimacy for the US right? The rich and powerful, custodians of the two holy sites were seen doing their traditional dance with Trump. The US continues to do what they are doing and nobody seems to give a flying F.

    JuD is a UN-designated terror organization. The founder is running Charity, including other terror organizations. Now in what world is he a peaceful guy. Maybe because he is the so-called good terrorist.

    But as long as you support these loose ends your issues will not be settled.
