Pakistan re-imposes ban on Hafiz Saeed's JuD, FIF
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan has reimposed a ban on Hafiz Saeed-led organisations Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) and its charity wing, the Falah-i-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF) on Thursday.

The decision to reinstate the ban was made during a crucial meeting of the national Security Committee (NSC) which was convened in the aftermath of Pulwama attack and the allegations hurled by India against Pakistan in this regard.

The meeting was chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan and was attended by three services chiefs, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and others.

JuD and FIF were declared as proscribed groups by former president Mamnoon Hussain who had promulgated an ordinance amending the Anti-Terrorism Act in this regard.

After the ordinance became ineffective, the two organisations were wiped off national list of proscribed organisations, however, this time, the two organisations have been notified as proscribed organisations through the Ministry of Interior.

Before the latest development, the two organisations had been under watch by the Ministry of Interior under Section 11-D-(1), read with Schedule-II of the Anti-Terrorism Act.

The ban on the two organisations is apparently not linked to the Pulwama attack in Indian Occupied Kashmir that left over 40 Indian soldiers dead.

The development might has its roots in the Financial Action Task Force guidelines with which Pakistan has to comply in order to get off the Grey list.
