Pakistan bans JuD, Haqqani Network ahead of Obama's India Trip


Islamabad, Jan 22: Pakistan media claimed that the government has banned Jamaat-ud-Dawa and Haqqani Network operated by Hafiz Saeed, 26/11 mastermind, under pressure ahead of the visit of US President Barack Obama to India.

Apart from banning two outfits, the Pakistan government has restricted Hafiz from travelling abroad.

Pakistan has been under pressure from India as well as international community to check terrorism in the country after the barbaric Taliban attack that claimed the lives of 150 innocent people including 140 school students in Peshawar on Dec 16 last year.

The move also came ahead of Obama's visit to India where he was invited as the chief guest to attend the Republic Day celebration on January 26.

However, India claimed that Pakistan is sending militants to create disturbance in India. According to latest report by Intelligence Bureau, extremists of four terror groups operating from Pakistan have already entered to India through Pak occupied Kashmir route to carry out massive attacks before Jan 28.
