UN Security Council bans Jamaat-ud-Dawa

The United Nations Security Council has placed sanctions against Pakistan-based Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), a front organization for Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), declaring it a terrorist organization following a plea by India in the wake of Mumbai attacks.

The Council panel has designated four men linked to the Mumbai attacks as terrorists. They are Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, Lashkar’s operations chief, Muhammad Saeed, the group’s leader, Haji Muhammad Ashraf, its chief of finance and Mahmoud Mohammad Ahmed Bahaziq, a financier with the group.

The US Treasury Department has already designated these men as terrorists and ordered any US assets frozen.
