ISLAMABAD, Oct 26: Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed's Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) and the Falah-i-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF) are no more on the list of banned outfits after the presidential ordinance that proscribed them under a UN resolution lapsed, a court here was told.
During a hearing on Thursday of a petition filed by Saeed, his counsel informed the Islamabad High Court that the presidential ordinance had lapsed and it had never been extended, Dawn news reported.
Deputy Attorney General Raja Khalid Mehmood Khan confirmed that the ordinance had lapsed. The petitioner had challenged the ordinance under which his organisations had been banned for being on the watch list of the UN Security Council. - IANS
