Pakistan bans JeM and 11 more terror bodies of Hafiz Saeed and Masood Azhar
Highlights

Several of the banned organisations also have ties to Jamat-ud-Dawah headed by Lashkar-e-Taiba chief and terror plotter Hafiz Saeed.

After de-escalating LoC violations in Jammu and Kashmir, in yet another gesture to placate India, the Pakistan establishment on Sunday banned a dozen organisations associated with newly-designated global terrorist Masood Azhar, including the notorious Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), which Azhar heads.
 
Azhar’s JeM had masterminded the dastardly Pulawama terror attack in February this year that claimed the lives of over 40 CRPF jawans.

Azhar was declared a global terrorist by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) on May 1 this year. 

This was a massive diplomatic victory for India which had been pushing for Azhar to be declared a global terrorist by the UN, and had strengthened its calls after the February 14 Pulwama attack, only to be repeatedly foiled by China.   

The decision was taken as the world body's sanctions committee held a crucial meeting, amid indications that China could lift its hold on the proposal to blacklist him.
