    Pakistani authorities on Wednesday booked 26/11 Mumbai attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed and his 12 accomplices for "terrorism financing" in 23 cases, amidst growing international pressure on Islamabad to act against militant groups.

    Pakistan counter-terrorism department said it has registered 23 cases against the chief of the Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) and 12 aides for using five trusts to "raise funds for terrorism financing".

    The Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) of Pakistan's Punjab province filed cases against Jamat-ud-Dawa (JUD) chief Hafiz Saeed and other members of his organisation. This comes after Punjab CTD launched second phase of crackdown against banned outfits, operating in the Punjab province.

    The cases have been registered under the Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA). The charity organisations listed in the cases are:

    1. Dawat Irshad Trust
    2. Moaz Bin Jabal Trust
    3. Al-Anfaal Trust
    4. Al-Madina Foudation Trust
    5. Al-Hamd Trust

    The organisations have been operating in major cities including Lahore, Gujranwala and Multan. At least four main members of Jamat-ud-Dawa (JUD) have been nominated in the cases including:

    1. Hafiz Mohammad Saeed
    2. Abdul Rehman Makki (brother-in-law of Hafiz Saeed)
    3. Ameer Hamza
    4. Mohammad Yahya Aziz

    Details of the cases reveal that these individuals have been involved in raising funds to facilitate terror activities.

    Operating under the umbrella of charities, these organisations have been funneling funds to terror suspects and promoting terrorism.

    It is pertinent to note that Pakistan government imposed a ban on Jamat-ud-Dawa (JUD) and its charity front Falah-e-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF), after enlisting them in its list of banned outfits.

    The move was in live with United Nation (UN) list of banned outfits and individuals, which has had these organizations and individuals in its blacklist for some time.

    JUD Chief Hafiz Saeed is accused of masterminding the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks with a 10 million dollar bounty on his head, sanctioned by the United States.

    At last, it took Imran Khan to do the needful. Hafeez did more harm to Pakistan than to any other country. India lost a useful tool. Good going Imran.
