LHC bars action against JuD chief Hafiz Saeed till April 4

Counsel for the petitioner, Advocate A. K Dogar contended that a delegation of the United Nations was going to arrive in Pakistan on Jan 26 and the government had planned to take strict action against Hafiz Muhammad Saeed.

The Islamabad High Court today suspended the Election Commission of Pakistans (ECP) decision to bar the party from registering itself as a political outfit. "It is a way of shielding what he used to do earlier", MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said.

The Lahore High Court on Wednesday extended stay against possible arrest of Jamatud Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed as law officers of the federal and provincial governments sought time to file their replies. India and the United States hold Saeed responsible for the 26/11. "Not only India but also the entire worldwide community feels that the action which should be taken against Hafiz Saeed is not being taken", he added.

The court's latest order also comes in the backdrop of a meeting of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), an intergovernmental money-laundering watchdog, that put Pakistan on a grey list.

The political party was launched in August past year by Hafiz Saeed, the mastermind of the deadly 2008 Mumbai attacks.

At the FATF meeting in Paris last month, Saeed and his "charities" were top on the list of the groups that the FATF wanted Pakistan to act against. He added that Hafiz Saeed was engaged in public welfare activities for the last several years. The US Department of the Treasury has designated Saeed as a global terrorist.
