Gatestone Institute: Pakistan Bankrolls Terrorist Group
Here is another important article from the Gatestone Institute. Long-time SFW readers may recall our work over the years on the funding of Lashkar e Taiba through the Islamic charity Jamaat ud Dawa and other channels:
Gatestone has an update on this topic well worth reading:
Pakistan has just allocated over $4,000,000 for a Center, a “Knowledge Park” and other initiatives for the Islamist parent body of the banned terrorist group that attacked Mumbai, India, in 2008.
The Pakistani provincial government of Punjab included in its budget for fiscal 2013-14 a sum of 61.35 million Pakistani Rupees ($616,000 USD) to fund the largest Center of Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) — the Islamist parent body of the banned terror organization Laskar-e-Taiba (LeT), which committed the Mumbai attacks.
In addition to that allocation for the JuD Center, known as Markaz-e-Taiba, the Pakistani government has also allocated Rs 350 million ($3,500,000 USD) for setting up a “Knowledge Park” and other initiatives at the Center.
