Hafiz Saeed declared ‘terrorist’ by Pakistan
Hafiz Saeed the mastermind of the 26/11 attack and boss of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba has been declared a terrorist by Pakistan. The development comes in the wake of the barricades placed by the members of the Jamaat-ud-Dawa outside the office's headquarters.
It may be recalled the blockade was set up 10 years ago in the name of security.
We have removed blockades from 26 places including JuD headquarters in accordance with the Supreme Court's orders," said DIG (Lahore) Dr. Haider Ashraf.
On Tuesday, President Mamnoon Hussain signed an ordinance that brings all individuals and organisations banned by the United Nations Security Council, like Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jamaat-ud-Dawah, and Harkat-ul Mujahideen, under the ambit of the amended Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA), 1997.
