KPK govt seals offices of Hafiz Saeed's JuD, FIF; seizes mosques, seminaries

The move came after the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) issued a notification asking citizens to not donate to organisations listed on a United Nations Security Council (UNSC) list of proscribed organisations.

The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government on Saturday initiated a crackdown against Hafiz Saeed-led Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) and its humanitarian wing, Falah-e-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF), by seizing the organisations' offices and taking over the latter's operational matters.

Peshawar's district administration, with the help of police and other law enforcement agencies, had initiated action against the JuD in the provincial capital after receiving directions from the federal government.

 “We have sealed the offices of the foundation, seized three religious schools and two mosques and handed over the seized properties to the Auqaf department to look after operational matters,” a senior official said.

The move came after the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) issued a notification asking citizens to not donate to organisations listed on a United Nations Security Council (UNSC) list of proscribed organisations.

The UNSC sanctions list includes al-Qaeda, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, JuD, FiF and other organizations.

After JuD and FiF were placed on the UNSC list, the interior ministry had written to the provinces asking them to take action.

Malik Nadeem Awan, a central leader of JuD said that after the Punjab government, the KP government had sealed and seizes the offices and ambulances of FiF in different districts in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

“A health facility in Balakot and office in Abbottabad has been sealed and ambulances have been seized and parked in police stations,” he said.

The Punjab Home department told the Lahore High Court Tuesday that Hafiz Saeed and his aides were detained after the federal government informed it that Jamatud Dawa and Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation were engaged in certain activities which could be prejudicial to peace and security.

The department said their activities could also damage Pakistan’s obligations to the United Nation’s Security Council resolution passed against these organisations. It further said that activities of the petitioners need to be closely monitored in the national interest.

The names of the petitioners were placed on the 4th scheduled and ATA and they were detained for a period of 90 days on January 30. He said they can file representations against their detention orders before the home secretary according to the law. He requested the court to dismiss the petition.

Earlier, Advocate A K Dogar, the counsel of Hafiz Saeed, argued that his clients were serving the humanity. At this, the court observed that in the line of service, some steps were taken which go beyond the service and create disturbance. 

The petitioners’ counsel said that his clients were detained under pressure from US and India and if the government finds anything wrong on the part of his clients, it should deal them in accordance with the law of the land and not under the obligations of the UN resolution.

In 2009, Hafiz Saeed was also put under house arrest despite banning his organisation but a full bench of the LHC declared that detention illegal as the government failed in presenting any proves of his involvement in terrorism.

His arguments were in the progress when the court adjourned the hearing due to shortage of time until March 27.

On January 28, the Punjab government placed names of Hafiz Saeed, Abdullah Ubaid (Faisalabad), Malik Zafar Iqbal Shahbaz (Markaz Tayyaba Muridke), Abdul Rehman Abid (Markaz Tayyaba Muridke) and Qazi Kashif Hussain of Multan in fourth schedule and on February 30 had put them under detention for 90 days.

The Punjab government took this step after the interior ministry gave it recommendations. The ministry through a notification had intimated that Jamatud Dawa and Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation were engaged in certain activities which could be prejudicial to peace and security and in violation of Pakistan’s obligations to the United national Security Council Resolution No 1267 and has accordingly placed both organization in the second schedule of ATA under its section 11-D (1).
