JuD slams Pak’s Punjab law min for his ‘state hand’ remark
Punjab law minister Rana Sanaullah had said in an interview to BBC Urdu that legal action against proscribed organisations like JuD and JeM is not possible since “state itself has remained a part of this”.
“Rana is deliberately creating confusion in order to support a concocted agenda,” a JuD spokesman said while responding to the Sanaullah’s statement.
The spokesman said that the Lahore High Court and Supreme Court of Pakistan have clearly stated that there is no ban on JUD, whatsoever, Dawn reported.
Meanwhile, Sanaullah told reporters outside the Punjab Assembly that his statement had been quoted out of context by the channel while it was in the background of the state’s policy on Kashmir, etc.
He said he would not comment further on the issue.
The candid admission by Sanaullah about the Pakistani state’s past ties with JuD and JeM may increase international pressure on the country to act against all militants groups including the Haqqani network, analysts said.
