Now Pakistan puts JuD chief Hafiz Saeed on Exit Control List

Islamabad: Amid continued pressure from trump administration, the Pakistan government after putting United Nation’s listed terrorist Hafiz Saeed under house arrest, has placed Saeed, who is also the chief of Jamaat-ud- Dawa on the Exit Control List.

The ministry had “placed Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation (FIF) and Jamaat-Ud-Dawa (JUD) on the Watch List

The decision to put his name on the exit control list came two days after he (Saeed), the Mumbai terror attack mastermind and four of his aides were put under house arrest.

According to information, the Interior ministry has forwarded a letter to all provincial governments and the Federal Investigation Agency, which included names of 38 individuals placed on the list, preventing them from leaving the country.
All the 38 individuals were said to be associated or in some ways linked with JuD or Lashkar-e-Taiba, the terror outfit banned by the US.

The ministry had “placed Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation (FIF) and Jamaat-Ud-Dawa (JUD) on the Watch List as per UNSC 1267 Sanctions and have listed these organisations in the Second Schedule of the ATA 1997 (as amended).”

“Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, Abdullah Ubaid, Zafar Iqbal, Abdur Rehman Abid and Qazi Kashif Niaz are reportedly active members of the aforementioned organisations within the meaning of Section 11EEE(1) of the ATA 1997 (as amended),” read a notification issued by the ministry.

“As such, they must be placed under preventive detention,” it added.

It may be mentioned here that Hafiz Saeed has been placed under a 90-day house arrest. Pakistan has been under immense pressure from new US administration to take action against Saeed and his organisations, reports claim.

However, this is not for the first time that Saeed was also put under house arrest as after Mumbai terror attacks in November 2008, a similar action was initiated against him but Saeed was freed by court in 2009.
