Terror-linked Charity Tries to Collect Funds Amid Government Warning in Pakistan
Police in Pakistan’s capital are investigating banners that were put up on behalf of Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), a U.N.- and U.S.-designated terror group, that urged residents in Islamabad to donate money for Muslims in Myanmar and Syria.
The banners appeared near a mosque in the capital last week, days after the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) issued a directive barring groups placed on the U.N. Security Council’s and Pakistan’s terror watch list from collecting funds or arranging any political, social, welfare or religious gatherings in the country.
