Pakistan ended up admitting that Dawood Ibrahim, India's most-wanted mobster since 1994 and prime accused in the 1993 Bombay bombings, lives in Karachi's White house. Pakistan had until now spent years denying that it shelters the D-Company chief, with a reward of $25 million over his head and wanted on charges of terrorism, murder, extortion, targeted killing, drug trafficking, and various other cases.
Pakistan confessed for the first time that they have given shelter to India’s Most Wanted Dawood Ibrahim
In looking for a way out of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) grey list, the Imran Khan-led government in Pakistan ended up admitting that Dawood Ibrahim, India’s most-wanted mobster since 1994 and prime accused in the 1993 Bombay bombings, lives in Karachi’s White house. Pakistan had until now spent years denying that it shelters the D-Company chief, with a reward of $25 million over his head and wanted on charges of terrorism, murder, extortion, targeted killing, drug trafficking, and various other cases.
Pakistan’s admission came in a list of severe financial sanctions that the country imposed on 88 banned terrorist outfits and their leaders, including Hafiz Saeed Ahmad of Jamaat-ud-Dawa, Mohammad Masood Azhar of the JeM, Dawood Ibrahim, and others.
The list, according to Pakistani authorities, mentions Dawood Ibrahim’s address as “White House, Near Saudi Mosque, Clifton” in Karachi, Pakistan. It also lists several other properties for the mobster and drug dealer, including one “House Nu 37 – 30th Street – defence, Housing Authority, Karachi” and “Palatial bungalow in the hilly area of Noorabad in Karachi”.
The Pakistan government has also ordered the seizure of all properties and freezing of all bank accounts of global terrorist Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, following new restrictions issued by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).
Islamabad issued two notifications on August 18 announcing sanctions on key figures of terror outfits and the seizure of all movable and immovable properties of these outfits and individuals, and freezing of their bank accounts.
These terrorists have been barred from transferring money through financial institutions, purchasing of arms and travelling abroad, Pakistani media reported, adding that the notifications ratified a complete ban on all leaders and members of defunct Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) hiding in the Pakistan-Afghanistan border areas.
Some of the individuals who have been named in the list of sanctions are — Saeed, Azhar, Mullah Fazlullah (alias Mullah Radio), Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, Muhammad Yahya Mujahid, Abdul Hakeem Murad (wanted by the Interpol), Noor Wali Mehsud, Fazal Raheem Shah of Uzbekistan Liberation Movement, Taliban leaders Jalaluddin Haqqani, Khalil Ahmad Haqqani, Yahya Haqqani, and Ibrahim and his associates.
Some of the terrorist organisations named in the list include — the now defund TTP, the Lashkar-e-Taiba, JeM, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, Tariq Geedar group of TTP, Harkatul Mujahideen, Al Rasheed Trust, Al Akhtar Trust, Tanzim Jaish-al Mohajireen Ansar, Jamaat-ul Ahrar, Tanzim Khutba Imam Bukhari, Rabita Trust Lahore, Revival of Islamic Heritage Society of Pakistan, Al-Haramain Foundation Islamabad, Harkat Jihad Al Islami, Islami Jihad Group, Uzbekistan Islami Tehreek, Daesh of Iraq, Emirates of Tanzim Qafqaz working against Russia, and Abdul Haq of Uyghurs of Islamic Freedom Movement of China.
Dawood Ibrahim has been designated as a global terrorist in 2003 by India and the United States with a reward of US $25 million on his head for his role in the 1993 Bombay bombings. In 2011, he was named number three on “The World’s 10 Most Wanted Fugitives” by the FBI. His crime syndicate spreads across Asia, Europe and Africa, with over 40% of its earnings coming from India.
Pakistan Should Hand Over Dawood Ibrahim to India, Says BJP Leader Shahnawaz Hussain
New Delhi, August 22: Bharatiya Janata Party national spokesman said that Pakistan should hand over Dawood to India.
Bharatiya Janata Party national spokesman Shahnawaz Hussain on Saturday said that Pakistan should hand over Dawood Ibrahim to India.
Speaking to ANI, Hussain said, “Pakistan knew that it had given shelter to Dawood Ibrahim. His children were married to a famous Pakistani cricketer. Every person in Pakistan knew that he lives in Karachi. However, till date Pakistan did not accept it. Now Pakistan should immediately hand over Dawood Ibrahim to India. Because he is the most wanted in India.”
He said that he is still involved in crime in India and even today many crimes are done in India through Dawood Ibrahim.
“Dawood Ibrahim is involved in major terrorist incidents. He is the main accused in the Mumbai blast. That is why Pakistan should hand over Dawood Ibrahim to India and the whole world should declare Pakistan a terrorist country. All the world’s terrorists are hidden in Pakistan. The country has become a refuge for terrorists all over the world. Wherever there is terrorism in the world, everyone knows that its roots are in Pakistan,” he said.
He said that this list of ‘terrorists’ of the government of Pakistan is not just a list but a confession of their crimes and this is the result of the diplomacy of the government of India.
He said that Financial Action Task Force (FATF) pressure is on Pakistan, there is pressure on the whole world, because India’s diplomacy has brought Pakistan to such an intersection that it has become a compulsion to confess its crimes. Today, helplessly they have to declare that Dawood Ibrahim lives in Pakistan.
Notably, the actions of Pakistan are undoubtedly under the pressure of the FATF, but due to this, the claim of the Government of India has now proved to be strong all over the world and Pakistan has exposed its lies as soon as it is under pressure.
This will strengthen the support of the Indian government in the ongoing fight against the terror in India and the cooperation that India is giving against the battle of terror across the world.
Earlier in the day, Pakistan government said that underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, one of the most wanted in India, is living in Karachi.
Islamabad has for years denied that it has sheltered Dawood, responsible for the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts, along with other terrorists.
