Pakistan Finally Takes Action Against Hafiz Saeed After Pulwama Terror Attack

Published

Pakistan has taken action against the banned terror outfit accused of the Pulwama terror attacks. Pakistan’s high powered National Security Committee decided to ban two charities run by Hafiz Saeed, the co-founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba.

Pakistani Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) Militant Killed in Tral, Jammu and Kashmir

During a meeting of Pakistan’s high-powered National Security Committee, an action was taken against Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) by banning Jamaat-ud-Dawa and Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation — the two organisations that India believes are supporting the banned Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).

India accuses the LeT of being behind the deadly turmoil by gunmen in Mumbai on November 9, 2008. India also claims that Maulana Masood Azhar, chief of JeM, the group that purportedly claimed responsibility for the Pulwama attack, is based in Pakistan.

The high-level meeting was presided over by Prime Minister Imran along with key federal ministers, three services chiefs as well as heads of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Military Intelligence (MI).

Just after the three hours meeting, the interior ministry issued a statement in which it said that the NSC reviewed the National Action Plan (NAP) in detail. “It was decided during the meeting to accelerate action against the proscribed organisations. It was further decided that Jamaat-ud-Dawa and Falah-e- Insaniat Foundation be notified as proscribed organisations by the ministry of interior,” said the statement.

The former military ruler General Pervez Musharraf banned JeM in 2002. The reference to expediting action against prohibited organisations hints that Pakistani authorities would act against the JeM. The decision is seen as significant and could be aimed at defusing tensions with India.
