The National Security Committee during its meeting chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan has decided to ban Hafiz Saeed-led Jamaat-ud-Dawa and its charity wing, Falah-e- Insaniat Foundation, and committee members has also decided to accelerate action against proscribed organizations.
“It was decided during the meeting to accelerate action against proscribed organisations,” the spokesperson said in a statement. “It was further decided that Jamat-ud-Dawa and Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation be notified as proscribed organizations by the Ministry of Interior,” he added. The Ministry of Interior will soon issue a notification declaring it to be a proscribed organisation, said its spokesperson on Thursday.
Islamabad began seizing the group’s assets last year after the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) — a global anti-money laundering watchdog — listed Pakistan on a watchlist of countries not doing enough to combat terror financing. Other banned outfits whose assets were seized include the Da’ish, Taliban, Al-Qaeda, Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammad and Haqqani Network, according to the briefing.
