Federal Govt releases list of blacklisted outfits

F.P. Report

ISLAMABAD: The Interior Ministry on Saturday released a list of all the blacklisted outfits, including Hafiz Sae-ed’s Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) and its subsidiary Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation (FIF).

A press release issued by the ministry had the list of all the 72 banned groups, including JuD and FIF. The ministry also declared that aiding and abetting any of the mentioned blacklisted organizations, financially or otherwise would also be considered a crime.

“Hence, people should avoid giving them charity, and should instead report any suspicious activities on 1717,” read the press release.

The list comes after the government on Monday made a decisive move against proscribed organisations that were still working undercover. The government prohibited fundraising as well as social, political, welfare and religious activities being carried by proscribed organisations and individuals despite the ban. Islamabad police have so far registered three First Information Reports (FIRs) against those putting up FIF banners in the capital.
