Spokesman Jamaat ud Dawa (JuD), Yahya Mujahid, has strongly condemned Pakistan government's decision to ban the organisation as well as the Falah e Insaniat Foundation (FIF).
He said, “JuD has been banned on external pressure due to raising the voice in favor of Kashmiris. The ban would harm Kashmiris’ freedom movement.”
Mujahid said his statement that, “JuD and FIF have been banned on raising voice for the oppressed people of Jammu-Kashmir. The same was done in the past due to Indian pressure, but Pakistani courts have always clearly stated in their verdicts that JuD and FIF are peaceful organizations and have complete freedom to continue their activities.”
Yahya Mujahid has said he would approach the courts and adding, “We would remain peaceful and will seek justice from the courts.”
The spokesman said that Kashmiris’ freedom movement is at its peak and Kashmiris are looking towards Pakistan.
In light of massive international pressure fostered by India following the dastardly Pulwama terror attack, a panicky Pakistan on Thursday took the belated action of banning 26/11 Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed's Jamaat-u-Dawah (JuD) and Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation (FIF) terror vehicles.
The decision, announced by Pakistan's interior ministry, comes just hours after Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan chaired a three-hour long National Security Committee (NSC) meeting in Islamabad in which the Pulwama terrorist attack carried out by the Pak-backed Jaish-e-Mohammad was discussed.
A spokesman of Ministry of Interior has said that the National Security Committee in its meeting held today at Prime Minister Office reviewed the National Action Plan in detail. It was decided during the meeting to accelerate action against proscribed organizations.
It was further decided that Jamat-ut-Dawa and Falah-e- Insaniat Foundation be notified as proscribed organizations by the Ministry of Interior.
