The government of Pakistan has added Hafiz Saeed’s Jama’at-ud-Da’wah and its charity wing Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation into its list of proscribed organisations.

The National Counter Terrorism Authority has updated the list, labeling the JuD and its charity wing as proscribed organisations. The list was updated after the Ministry of Interior issued a notification.

The move came a few hours after the officials from the ministry announced that 44 members of banned outfits, including the brother and son of Jaish-e-Mohammad leader Masood Azhar, have been taken into “preventive custody for investigation”.

JeM has been in the news for the last few weeks after a suicide bomber rammed his explosive-laden vehicle into a convoy of Indian soldiers in Pulwama in Indian-administered Kashmir. The attack was reportedly claimed by the JeM.

India had alleged that the JuD was involved in anti-India activities, including the 26/11 Mumbai attack.

Minister of State for Interior Sheheryar Afridi, however, said on Tuesday evening that the government was not acting against the members of banned outfits under any pressure; neither would they do so in future.
