‘Impotent’ Pak Govt. powerless to stop ‘terror outfit’ JuD’s ‘charity’ rampageAugust 22nd, 2010 - 12:43 pm ICT by ANI
London, Aug.22 (ANI): Mocking the ban imposed by the Pakistan government on it, the Jamaat-ud-Daawa (JuD), the charity wing of the dreaded terror group-Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), is running relief camps in the flood-hit north western part of the country and providing the victims food, medicines and money.
The JuD, under its latest humanitarian face Falah-e-Insaniat, has established numerous relief camps in Khyber Pakhtunkwa province in its bid to push through its anti-west ideology amidst the survivors of the devastating deluge.
While the Gilani government has been struggling to collect funds for the flood-victims, the JuD, which masterminded the November 2008 Mumbai carnage, claimed that it raises 120 million rupees daily, which is equal to the total amount the Prime Minister relief fund has with it.
Falah-e-Insaniat vice-president Mian Adil claimed that the group has raised nearly a million pound for the flood victims, ridiculing the Pakistan government’s relief efforts.
“We are raising that every day,” Adil said laughingly while referring to the amount collected through the Prime Minister’s relief fund.
He said the people of country do not trust the government and added that the JuD had proved its worth during 2005 earthquake relief and rescue operations.
“We have thousands of volunteers, hundreds of collection points. The government can do nothing compared with us. We have the people of Pakistan - good Muslims - behind us. No-one trusts the government. No will give their money to them. But they saw us at work during the 2005 earthquake and know we will help again,” The Telegraph quoted Adil, as saying.
He insisted the aid was delivered without a political message, but refused to condemn the actions of the LeT.
“We are just a welfare organisation. But if you want me to call the jihadi groups terrorists then I will not. They are fighting for freedom,” Adil stressed.
Earlier this week, President Asif Ali Zardari expressed fears of terrorists taking advantage of the crisis to push through their ulterior motives of gathering public support to weaken the government, and analysts also warned that these ‘terror’ charities dispensed ideology with their aid and have been able to capitalise on an unpopular government’s failure to act decisively.
“These organisations operate every day at the grass roots so of course they can get in fast. It is now up to the government and secular groups to move in and take over,” said Talat Masood, a noted military and political analyst. (ANI)
