    Come Friday prayers in Lahore, it is not hard to find the alleged mastermind of the Mumbai attacks. Hafiz Mohammed Saeed is neither in hiding nor in jail. The founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba is instead delivering a sermon to thousands of devoteees at the Jamia al-Qadsia mosque — one of the biggest in the city. “God has promised to make Muslims a superpower if we follow the right path,” Mr Saeed told his followers, who listened in rapt silence. Outside, policemen with machineguns stood guard and bearded security men frisked all those entering. “Our rulers are the slave of America and...

    NEW DELHI: For all the protestations that the Jamaat-ud-Dawa is a charitable organisation and Hafiz Mohammed Saeed is an injured innocent, it's clear that the organisation and Saeed's family, in particular, have been in the crosshairs of US government for several years and a couple of Saeed's family members are already in US custody. As the Lashkar-e-Taiba grew in stature, profile and links to violent terrorism in Pakistan, curiously, its amir Saeed's family kept making tracks to the US to live and work there over the past decade. Over the years, LeT aka Jamaat-ud-Dawa has morphed from an ISI-sponsored terror...

    A Pakistani charity that received 10 million dollars from Britain for earthquake relief last year helped finance the alleged bomb plot to blow up US-bound passenger jets, The Washington Post said.

    LAHORE, Feb 6 (OneWorld) - Donating skins of sacrificed animals for charity is big in Pakistan, where over three million animals were sacrificed during the Islamic festival of Eid, but jehadi groups are cornering a large number of the hides and selling them to bankroll the "holy war." Despite a ban on seeking donations for jehad, several organizations display banners and posters across the country, asking citizens to donate hides so that the "holy war" in Kashmir and Afghanis can continue. Many of the groups involved in the hides-for-money campaign are nongovernmental organizations and Islamic charities and at least two...
