The four others have been identified as Abdullah Ubaid (Faisalabad), Zafar Iqbal (Muridkay, Markaz-e-Taiba), Abdur Rehman Abid (Muridkay, Markaz-e-Taiba) and Qazi Kashif Niaz (Multan, presently in Lahore).
The action has been taken by Pakistan after the new US administration’s warning that it may face sanctions if it does not act against terrorism (Saeed).
While this was so, Saeed, in a video message, said that he has asked JuD activists to raise the K-issue on February 5 i.e. observed as Kashmir Solidarity Day in Pakistan. He also blamed the “deep” friendship Trump wants to have with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
JuD is the frontal organisation of the banned Lashkar-e-Toiba and the United Nations had declared Saeed a global terrorist. In this regard, the US even announced a prize money of $10 for his head.
