Pak SC asks government to make names of banned outfits public

Pakistan’s Supreme Court on Thursday asked the government to make public the names of all banned organisations so that people are aware about proscribed groups while giving donations, hours after authorities confirmed banning of Hafiz Saeed-led JuD and other terror outfits.

Issuing the order, Justice Jawwad Khawaja said since the government is involved in the war against militants, it is important that people should know about the banned groups in the country. “The people should know before giving donations whether that group is banned or not,” he said.

The apex court gave the directions to the government during the hearing of a petition on the errors and mistakes in law books which create confusions. The court issued the order on the same day when the Pakistan government confirmed banning of Jamaat-ud-Dawa and the dreaded Haqqani Network along with other terror outfits. After the order, the attorney general said that he will inform the court when the government would make the names of banned groups public.
