UN refuses to remove Hafiz from the list of Banned: The United Nations has rejected the petition of the mastermind of the 2008 Mumbai attacks and the Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed in which he appealed to be removed from the list of banned terrorists. This news is coming at a time when an appeal has been made to ban the Jain-e-Mohammed Chief Masood Azhar, the terrorist organization responsible for the Pulwama attack, from the United Nations 1267 banning committee. It is noteworthy that 40 soldiers were martyred in the attack on CRPF convoy in Pulwama and the responsibility of the attack was taken by Jams.
Here, Hafiz’s plea on behalf of the United Nations has been dismissed at a time when India has presented detailed evidence regarding its activities, including very confidential information. According to official sources, Hafiz’s lawyer Haidar Rasool Mirza has been informed by the decision of the United Nations this week.
Lashkar-e-Taiba co-founder Hafiz was banned by the United Nations Security Council on December 10, 2008 after the Mumbai attacks. Hafiz had filed an appeal in March 2017 through Lahore-based law firm Mirza And Mirza, and then he was interned in Pakistan. Sources said that Daniel K., an independent Lokpal appointed by the United Nations, Fasiaati informed Hafiz’s counsel that after the investigation of his application it was decided that he will remain in the list of the banned.

Hafiz’s petition was opposed by India, Britain and France as well as India. The important thing is that Pakistan did not oppose it, when the new government led by Imran Khan is claiming that he is taking action against the banned terrorists and their organizations.
Last month, the United States, Britain and France had urged to ban Jaish Chief Masood Azhar, who is living in Pakistan, according to Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi. Let us know that the United Nations declared Jaish as a terrorist organization.
