Pakistan takes action against Hafiz Saeed's JuD

Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, chief of the Islamic charity organisation Jamaat-ud Dawa, speaks to supporters during a gathering to protest against Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in Rawalpindi Pakistan

"It is not that we will take up arms against our own country - that time has passed", he said, adding that Pakistan will now make calculated decision.

Minister for Defence Khurram Dastagir on Wednesday stated that the operation against Jamatud Dawa (JuD) was being held under the umbrella of Operation Raddul Fasaad .

The defence minister said that half of Pakistan's air space and land routes were still open to the U.S. and without them, its reach in Afghanistan would be highly affected.

He further clarified that JuD had no link with the Haqqani network and deteriorated situation in Afghanistan, but asserted that the U.S. should quit Afghanistan.

Declaring "India's indirect role" as the main reason behind strained ties between Pakistan and the US, Khan said India was also using Afghanistan's soil against Pakistan.

The JuD has said it will serve a legal notice to Pakistan's defence minister for "defaming" it, days after the government banned the Hafiz Saeed-led outfit from collecting donations following US President Donald Trump's outburst against Islamabad's sheltering of terrorists.

The Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP), through a notification on Monday, had also stopped all companies from donating cash to proscribed organisations and individuals mentioned in the sanctions regime maintained by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).

Trump loves Norway. Haiti, Latin America and Africa? Not so much
The ceremony was attended by a number of King's descendants as well as a frighteningly large number of miscellaneous Black people. Tim Scott, R-S.C., called Trump's remarks "disappointing".

No hideouts of militants are in Pakistan as they are being eliminated by Pakistan army in operation Radd-ul-Fasaad, he claimed.

He added that the action against JuD is being taken after much consideration "to secure our future so terrorists can no longer kill our children in schools".

In a statement, the JuD said, "World knows who is behind the steps against JuD and FIF".

Trump reaffirmed his allegation that Pakistan provides safe haven to the terrorists and doesn't cooperate in the anti-terrorism operation against the banned outfits in Afghanistan.

Addressing the rally, JuD leader Hafiz Abdur Rehman Maki alleged that the action against the JuD and the FIF has been taken on the pressure of the USA and India.

Maki also said that any move by the government to take the control of "Markaz-e-Taiba" (the JuD headquarters) and charity would not be accepted.
