JuD chief Hafiz Saeed sentenced to 10 years in jail


LAHORE – An anti-terrorism court in Punjab has awarded 10-year imprisonment to Jamat-ud-Dawa amir Hafiz Saeed Ahmad in funding case.

The court also ordered the authorities concerned to confiscate property of Hafiz Saeed and imposed Rs1,10,000 as a fine on him. Abdul Rehman Makki -- his close accomplice -- was also awarded six-month jail for his role in funding case.

Last week, three JuD leaders - Malik Zafar Iqbal and Yahya Mujahid - were awarded 16 years in jail while the court awarded one year imprisonment to Hafiz Abdul Rehman Makki in the same case.

ATC-III Judge Ejaz Ahmad Buttar issued the verdict after allegations against suspects stood proved.

In 2019, the Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) had registered the cases against the convicts under section 11-N of Anti-Terrorism Act 1997.

It surfaced during the investigation the suspects committed terrorism financing by managing assets of proscribed organization, and helped in raising funds.

Meanwhile, the court also indicted five leaders of Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) in six separate terror finance cases, besides adjourning further hearing till November 16.

Those indicted included Hafiz Abdul Salam, Hafiz Abdul Rehman Makki, Malik Zafar Iqbal, Yahya Mujahid and Luqman Shah. They were indicted in FIRs no 15, 21, 22, 27, 31 and 42 of 2019.

The CTD had registered 23 FIRs against the leaders of the JuD in different cities of Punjab.

This man is a trillion time more powerful than Fazl ur Rehman yet he is taking this silently,. he is taking this injustice silently cause he loves the state while traitors like Fazl ur Rehman who plot and attack the state at every turn are left untouched, i have always said Pakistan has a history of burning patriots and glorifying traitors, one of the core reasons why the country is in this condition.

Just an eyewash move to comply with FATF. If he goes to prison he will continue to live a lavish life and operate his empire remotely, only to be released within a few months and start another eyewash trial.

Specially after the new chief justice, the guy who let free all the terrorists who were awarded death sentences by military courts.
Btw Indian media be like " Pakistan took Hafiz Saeed in protective custody after they came to know about Indian plans of sending single Indian RAW agent to kill him in his house".
