ISLAMABAD: Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed-led Jamaat-ud-Dawa and its wing Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation were formally paced in the list of banned organisations on Tuesday, a day after the Indian media reported that the two outfits continue to be only on the watchlist.
According to Pakistan’s National Counter Terrorism Authority (NCTA) list, which was updated on Tuesday, JuD and FIF were among 70 organisations proscribed by the Ministry of Interior under the Anti-Terrorism Act 1997.
“This list is updated as of 05th March, 2019 and prepared by NACTA based on the Notifications issued by Ministry of Interior,” said a note at the bottom of the list.
The development comes a day after Indian media reported that the two organisations continue to be only in the list of groups under watch. (AGENCIES)
