Hafiz Saeed sends Khurram Dastgir Rs100m defamation notice
LAHORE - Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) on Friday sent a Rs100 million defamation notice to Federal Defence Minister Khurram Dastgir over his misleading statement that the action against the banned organisation was a part of operation Raddul Fasaad.

The notice, served by Advocate AK Dogar, on behalf of JUD chief Hafiz Saeed, under Section 8 of the Defamation Ordinance of 2002, the minister has been asked to tender an apology in writing within 14 days, or face litigation.

Following the ban on JuD charity activities, Dastgir had said: “The actions against JuD were linked to ongoing Operation Raddul Fasaad and not taken due to mounting pressure from the US and action is being taken that ‘terrorists cannot open fire on school children anymore’.”

Meanwhile, Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, in a Friday sermon,  said that the nation should reject the US aid with dignity and self-esteem. “If we stand on our feet, our economic issues will be solved.”

“Today, Trump says that the US has given aid to Pakistan for 16 years but it was duped in return. We say, you were made ‘fool’ so long and you are still the same. America wanted to stabilise its occupation over Afghanistan but it was defeated in the region,” he opined.

Earlier, the government has banned companies and individuals from making donations to the JuD, the FIF and other organisations on the UN Security Council sanctions list.

The Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) issued a notification prohibiting the collection of donations by the JuD, the front organisation of banned terror outfit Lashkar–e–Taiba, as well as several other such organisations named in a list of banned outfits by the UN Security Council.
