JuD defies Pakistan govt by launching ambulance service

Unfazed by sanctions imposed by the government, Mumbai 2008 attacks mastermind Hafeez Saeed-led militant outfit Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) has launched an ambulance service here in southern port city of Pakistan.

The service was started by JuD controlled charity Falah- i-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF) yesterday and inaugurated by none other than Saeed, declared as militant by the UN and the US.

“The ambulance work service is our key area for (charity) for which we are known in Pakistan,” Saeed told reporters.

He said his organisation did not face resistance in any welfare project from the government.
“We are not going to abandon these projects. A certain class and a certain group are targeting our organisation for a certain agenda,” he said.

Saeed said his organization was active in far flung areas and have not decided to expand its charitable work in the main cities to facilitate the maximum number of people.
The FIF plans to operate a fleet of 15 ambulances in Karachi, a metropolis of more than 18 million people.

Saeed said that already ambulance service was active in 118 cities across the country.
