Pakistan Bans Media Coverage Of Hafiz Saeed’s Jamaat-Ud-Dawa

Published on 3 November, 2015 at 5:00 pm By

Pakistan has banned media coverage of militant groups like the Jamaat-ud-Dawa as part of a crackdown on terror. This means that no channel and newspaper in the country can advertise JuD and 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed.

This is for the first time a Pakistan government department has admitted that JuD and Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation (FIF) are “other wings of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT)”.

The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) issued a notification banning all satellite TV channels and FM radio from coverage of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), JuD and FIF under UN restriction.

The PEMRA also attached a list of 60 banned organisations and 12 organisations which were on the watch-list.

The notification said the action has been taken against these organisations as part of the National Action Plan.



 

The National Action Plan was devised in January this year in the wake of the Peshawar Army Public School massacre in which over 150 people, mostly school children, were killed.

Following the attacks, the government and military had decided to carry out operations in the tribal areas and take action against all terrorist organisations and their facilitators across the country.

The United States has already put $10 million bounty on the head of Saeed, who orchestrated the November, 2008, Mumbai terror attack in which 166 people were killed.
