The JuD and its charitable wing, Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation, were put on observation under Anti-Terrorism Act, 1997. Official sources confirmed that the two organisations have started activities under the name new of TAJK and were planning to organise events on February 5.
According to PTI report, the group is also planning to hold a big Kashmir conference on Sunday in Lahore after evening prayers. The TAJK has reactivated its donations centres in different districts of Punjab, including Lahore, which is the hub of its activities.
TAJK banners have been displayed in Lahore and other cities and towns.
A police official said law enforcement agencies were keeping a close eye on the activities of Saeed’s network and appropriate action would be taken.
“It is a sensitive issue and a measured response is needed to fulfill the international obligations of the country and deal with any possible fallout due to protest by followers of Saeed,” he said.
The Interior Ministry had also placed Saeed and 37 other JuD and FIF members on the Exit Control List (ECL), barring them from leaving the country.
