Pak Govt. directs media not to air banned outfits statementsDecember 12th, 2008 - 12:01 pm ICT by ANI
Lahore, Dec.12 (ANI): The Pakistan Government has directed public and private TV channels not to air statements by banned Pakistani outfits, a private TV channel reported on Thursday.
The Daily Times quoted the channel authorities as saying that the government has also cancelled the declaration of weekly Ghazwa and the monthly Al Dawa published by the now-banned Jamaat-ud-Daawa, the political wing of the militant outfit Lashkar-e-Toiba.
The ban came in the wake of a crackdown launched on the charity by the Pakistani authorities.
On Thursday, the government placed the chief of Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) Hafiz Muhammad Saeed under house arrest for a period of three months in Lahore.
It also started clamping down offices of JuD and other banned outfits across the country.
Police began closing the offices of Jamaat-ud-Dawa across the country after the UN Security Council on Thursday declared the organisation a terrorist group, The News reported.
The assets of JuD and of the nine leaders have been frozen, the senior government official said, and their names will also be placed on the exit control list to prevent them from leaving the country.
The regional offices of Jamaat have also been sealed in Karachi, Hyderabad, Islamabad, Rawalpindi and Pakistan Kashmir.
Earlier, The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) banned the Jamaat-ud-Dawa and also declared it a terrorist organization.
A committee of the UN Security Council placed financial sanctions on four members of the LeT, as well as the charitable organization that Indian and U.S. officials say serves as the Lashkar”””’’s financial front, according to the U.N. (ANI)
