Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) branded as terror outfit
In consideration to India’s request following the Mumbai terror strikes, the United Nations Security Council has branded Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD), the frontal organisation of Lashkar-e-Taiba, as a terrorist organisation and also four men as global terrorists.
Earlier, India had urged in a letter to the 15-member UN body to proscribe the Pakistan based political wing of the banned militant organisation LeT, the Jamaat-ud-Dawa, a terror outfit that was involved in the recent terror strike in India’s financial capital Mumbai killing over 170.
This apart, the UN Security Council panel has also designated four men: Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, Lashkar's operations chief; Muhammad Saeed, the group's leader; Haji Muhammad Ashraf, its chief of finance; and Mahmoud Mohammad Ahmed Bahaziq, a financier with the group. These names are included at the request of US.
India has claimed to have enough evidence against the involvement of LeT and its bracket organisation of orchestrating last month’s attack in Mumbai.
With this they are subjected to face sanction, freezing of assets, travel ban and arms embargo under the new resolution of the council.
Earlier, Pakistan's Permanent Representative to the UN, Abdullah Hussain Haroon, had said that Pakistan is ready to ban the suspected outfit if the UN requests to do so.
During the Security Council debate, the Indian envoy E. Ahamed, who is also the Minister of State for External Affairs, asserted without naming any country that the country, from where the terrorist attack originated and was planned, should take immediate steps to stop their operations.
