The Govt of Pakistan has banned 24 outfits including “Jamat-Ud-Dawa Pakistan”.
“The Government of Pakistan issued a list of 24 different organizations on Thursday declaring all of them to be banned from now onwards. The list included Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, Hizb ut Tehrir, Sipah-e-Muhammad Pakistan (SSP), Sipah Sahaba Pakistan (SSP), Jaish e Muhammad, Jamatul Furqan, Millat e Islamia and Kher un Nisa International Trust.
The Government also declared Jamiat ul Ansar, Tehreek Nifaz Shariyat Muhammadi (TNSM), Lashkar e Taiba, Tehreek-e-Jaffriya, Islamic Movement of Khuddamul Islamia and Islamic Students Movement as prohibited.”
It has been alleged time and again that “Lashkar-e-Taiba” has been performing its operations under the umbrella of “Jamat-ul-Dawah” and LeT is using the name of Jamat-ul-Dawah to gather sympathy and manpower from the masses.
It is simple to understand that if people operating the organization are same then how come only changing the name will make it lawful?
The Government should make it clear that when an organization is banned, its officials should also be monitored so that they cannot continue their activities under the umbrella of any other name or welfare organization.
