Pakistan bans three more religious charity organizations

   Mar 12, 1:02 pm

Islamabad, Mar 12 (ANI): The Pakistan Government has banned three other religious charity organisations working in the country.

The Dawn quoted the interior ministry, as saying that with the latest ban imposed on Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ), Al Harmain Foundation (AHF) and Rabita Trust (RT), the number of outlawed organisations and groups has risen to 38.

The three organisations were outlawed by the United Nations (UN) in 2009 under a resolution adopted by the Security Council.

The ASWJ, which was earlier known as the Sipah-i-Sahaba Pakistan (SSP), is taking part in activities of a recently-formed group of religious organisations, the Difa-i-Pakistan Council.

The Council had recently organised huge rallies across the country, slamming both the Pakistan government and the US over their policies and aerial attacks.

Meanwhile, ASWJ chief Maulana Ahmed Ludhyanvi has expressed ignorance about any such ban, saying if it was true, he would opt for a legal fight.

"We are a peaceful organization. If anyone places a ban on us...they are trying to place a ban on Pakistan," he added.

The organisations previously banned by the government, include the Lashkar-i-Jhangvi, the Sipah-i-Muhammad Pakistan ( banned on Aug 14, 2001), the Jaish-i-Muhammad, the Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Sipah-i-Sahaba Pakistan. (ANI)
