Islamabad police register complaint against terrorist-linked charity

Pakistan Forward

ISLAMABAD -- Police in Islamabad have begun taking action against the Falaah-i-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF), the charity wing of Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), a day after the Pakistani government banned donations to the organisation for having links to militant groups.

Islamabad police Wednesday (January 3) filed a first information report against FIF for displaying a banner seeking donations at a mosque in Ghouri Town.

On January 1 (Monday), the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan issued a notification prohibiting all registered companies from donating cash to entities and individuals listed under a consolidated UN Security Council list of banned organisations.

That list includes FIF, which is listed as an affiliate of the banned Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militant group and JuD.
