You all should keep it in a mind that “the United States of America is in the hands of Donald Trump”, who took a vow to demolish every terror network all around the world. As a part of it, the terror nation Pakistan is now streaming to hell! Donald trump’s single order has sent the shiver down the spine of Pakistan, which built a heaven for the terror networks.
In a major move ahead of the general elections in Pakistan, the US on Monday designated Milli Muslim League (MML), the political front of Hafiz Saeed-led Jamaat-ud-Dawa, as a foreign terrorist organization.
According to instructions of Donald Trump, the honourable president of the US, Seven members of MML central leadership body have been designated as foreign terrorists. It is also added Tehreek-e- Azadi-e-Kashmir (TAJK) to the list of terrorist groups. TAJK is said to be a front of the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), continues to operate freely inside Pakistan.
Yes! Though the election commission had earlier rejected the MML’s application for registration as a political party after the interior ministry objected to its ties to banned militant outfits, this big move has been taken a day after the Election Commission of Pakistan asked the MML to produce a clearance certificate by the interior ministry for its registration as a political party.
“Both MML and TAJK are LeT fronts created to circumvent the sanctions against it (LeT)…Today’s amendments take aim at LeT’s efforts to circumvent sanctions and deceive the public about its true character,” said Nathan A Sales, coordinator for counterterrorism at the Department of State.
Adding to this, the State Department said, ” the move was aimed at denying the LeT the resources it needs to plan and carry out further terrorist attacks. LeT continues to operate freely within Pakistan, holding public rallies, raising funds, and plotting and training for terrorist attacks. The LeT was designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) and Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT) group on December 26, 2001. Its leader, Saeed, is also designated as an SDGT. To avoid sanctions, LeT has repeatedly changed its name over the years.”
Also, according to the reports of the States, “In January 2017, LeT began operating under the name TAJK. Under this name, the LeT has engaged in inciting terrorism, as well as recruiting and fundraising. In August 2017, Saeed created the MML to serve as a political front for the group. LeT members make up MML’s leadership and the so-called party openly displays Saeed’s likeness in its election banners and literature.”
One big move of the year has taken by the US Department of the Treasury is it’s designated seven members of the MML central leadership body for acting for on behalf of the LeT, named :
“Saifullah Khalid (president), Muzammil Iqbal Hashimi (vice president), Muhammad Harris Dar (Joint Secretary),Tabish Qayyuum (Information Secretary), Fayyaz Ahmad (General Secretary), Faisal Nadeem (Broadcast and Publications Secretary), and Muhammad Ehsan (Finance Secretary).”
“Make no mistake: whatever LeT chooses to call itself, it remains a violent terrorist group. The US supports all efforts to ensure that LeT does not have a political voice until it gives up violence as a tool of influence,” Sales said.
Treasury Under Secretary Sigal Mandelker claimed that “treasury is targeting the MML and a group of seven global terrorists who are complicit in LeT’s attempts to undermine Pakistan’s political process. The MML is not a recognized political party and it relies on the leadership of the LeT for guidance and direction. We will continue to target terrorist organizations like LeT, even when they attempt to cloak themselves as political parties or hide their extremism behind other facades.
And, now the game starts!
I don’t even know why Pakistan is still over-confident that they can fool the entire world by just pretending? Last time, Donald Trump has almost ripped apart the spine of Pakistan by stopping funds. He has also warned Pakistan to stop building a haven for terrorists. But, still NO! Seems, Pakistan never changes! And, now ahead of general elections of Pak, the US has claimed seven future politicians of Pakistan as Foreign terrorists. And, this move of the US has shook Pakistan. In coming days, the president of the US makes sure that the spine of Pakistan rips apart if they do not stop funding for terrorist organisations.
