Pakistan welcomes UNSC sanctions on Jamaat ul Ahrar

Pakistan had proposed this listing after proscribing this group a year ago.

Pakistan has hailed a United Nations Security Council decision to declare the group Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, or JuA, a global terrorist organization.

The government had called for an worldwide ban on the organisation after which the 1627 Sanctions Committee of the Security Council designated the outfit.

The designation subjects JuA to an assets freeze, travel ban and arms embargo.

Earlier, this terrorist group was responsible for the Easter Sunday attack on the Gulshan-e-Iqbal amusement park in Lahore, where the death toll crossed hundred.

The Pakistani government banned the organization's activities previous year following several deadly attacks that it claimed responsibility for.

JuA has not yet commented on the United Nations decision. Ehsan later disclosed in a video that like him many Pakistani militants now operated from the Afghan side of the border. The outfit was banned in Pakistan in November previous year.

The JuA based in Nangarhar province of Afghanistan has been involved in a series of terrorist attacks inside Pakistan.

In April, Ehsanullah Ehsan, the former spokesman of JuA, surrendered to the security forces, which was a serious blow to the group. "Pakistan had proposed this listing", the FO said.

Kabul and New Delhi rejected the accusations.
