Pak has ‘enough material’ against JuD, but could not produce it in courtMay 28th, 2009 - 12:37 pm ICT by ANI
Lahore, May 28 (ANI): The Pakistan government has ‘enough material’ against the Jamaat-ud- Dawa (JuD) leaders to prove that they have been involved in terror activities, but it could not produce it before a court of law.
Arguing on a petition against the detention of JuD leaders Hafiz Saeed and Colonel (retired) Nazir Ahmad, Attorney General Latif Khosa told the Lahore High Court (LHC) bench that the authorities have enough evidence against Saeed, Colonel Ahmad and several other JuD leaders to prove that they have involved in certain nefarious activities, but those cannot be produced before the court.
Khosa failed to clarify why the evidences could not be made public, The Daily Times reports.
He said the government was forced to detain both Saeed and Ahmed after their alleged involvement in November 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.
Under persistent pressure from India and West after the 26/11 terror strike, the Pakistan government had initiated a crackdown on the banned terror organization Lashkar-e-Toiba’s frontal outfit, the Jammat-ud-Daawa.
Twenty offices, 87 schools, two libraries, seven religious schools and six websites linked to JuD, a group now proscribed as a terrorist organisation by the United Nations Security Council were also shut down.
The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) had imposed a ban on the JuD while declaring it a terrorist organization on December 10, 2008, for its involvement in the November 26, Mumbai terror attacks, but most of the organisation’s centers are still working as they did earlier. (ANI)
