Pakistani government is all set to take over the infrastructure of Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) and its subsidiary Falah-i-Insaaniyat Foundation (FIF) following a Presidential decree on last Friday that eliminated a discrepancy to the list of UN declared terrorist organizations and those banned by authorities in the country, an Interior Ministry source confirmed on Tuesday.

Jamaatud Dawa and its charity wing FIF was banned by the United Nations but they got a reprieve from Lahore High Court. Hafiz Saeed was put behind bars for months before he was released late last year by the High Court after the government failed to file any charges. Hafiz Saeed and his organization was banned by the UN and the US following Mumbai attacks in India.

A government official told that the ambulances, schools and health centers operated by JuD and FIF will be taken over by the government. Health facilities will now come under Red Crescent while schools will be taken over by the provincial government.

But government officials said that the move to take over JuD and FIF assets had been taken by the government after taking JuD and FIF leaders into confidence.

The move came days before a critical meeting in Paris of Financial Action Task Force that would take stock of the commitments by the member countries on restricting banned organizations to function.
