Islamabad, Oct. 27: Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed-led Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) and Falah-i-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF) are no longer on the list of banned outfits in Pakistan as the ordinance that proscribed them under a UN resolution has lapsed and the new Imran Khan-led government did not extend it, a media report said on Friday.
In February this year, former President Mamnoon Hussain promulgated an ordinance amending the Anti-Terrorism Act, 1997, to declare JuD and FIF as proscribed groups.
Saeed contended that he established JuD in 2002 and cut off all ties with the banned Lashkar-e-Toiba, but India continued to malign the JuD for its past association with the banned outfit.
India has been pushing Pakistan to bring to justice the planners of the November 2008 Mumbai attacks. Saeed is the co-founder of Lashkar-e-Toiba, responsible for the attack in which 166 persons were killed. The Tribune
