Islamabad: Hafiz Saeed, the JuD chief and the co-founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba, made light of Pakistan’s re-imposition of the ban advising followers to stay calm.
In a video message Saeed informed that all the work is going well and exhorted them on the glory of Islam.
Media reports said the new video has established the fact that Pakistan’s action against the fugitive terrorist leader is nothing but an eyewash.
The ban comes at a time when Pakistan is facing immense international pressure to act against terror groups responsible for the dastardly Pulwama terror attack.
A suicide car bomb attack had killed forty CRPF troopers. Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) had owned responsibility for the attack.
Media reports in Pakistan said the decision to ban the charities linked to Saeed was taken at the National Security Council meeting chaired by premier Imran Khan.
Pakistan’s interior ministry said in a statement that it was decided during the meeting to accelerate action against outlawed outfits.
