Hafiz Saeed denies JuD being a 'foreign terrorist organisation' as claimed by US

Lahore, June 27 (ANI): The US State Department has named a self-proclaimed Pakistani charity as a "foreign terrorist organisation", a status that freezes any assets it has under US jurisdiction. Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) calls itself a humanitarian charity but is widely seen as a front organisation for the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LET), a Pakistan-based group accused of orchestrating attacks in India, including the 2008 Mumbai attack that killed 166 people. However, Hafiz Saeed, who founded LeT and now leads JuD, lashed out at the United States government for targeting JuD in the name of LeT without having any proof. He said the State department was doing this at the instigation of India.
