JuD denies link with LeT following US crackdown
Lahore: Banned jihadi outfit Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) has said it has no link with the banned Lashkar-e-Toiba organisation.
"The LeT is an occupied Kashmir-based religious organisation, which has been struggling to help Kashmiris get freedom from India and we have no link with the LeT," The Dawn quoted senior JuD leader Amir Hamza, as saying.
JuD`s statement came hours after the US announced that it was freezing the assets the JuD or its eight leaders may have in the US, and prohibiting US citizens and officials from engaging in any business with these individuals.
Hamza described the US decision as an attempt to defame the JuD leadership, adding that the US action to place JuD leaders`` names on the US list of specially designated persons with link to terrorism was absolutely wrong and baseless.
