New Delhi, Apr 4: The UN Security Council’s terror list includes 139 entries from Pakistan alone. It has the name of Lashkar-e-Taiba chief and Mumbai attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed and underworld don Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar, who owns a palatial bungalow in the hilly area of Noorabad, Karachi, as per the UN.
Osama bin Laden’s apparent heir Ayman al-Zawahiri tops the list. Haji Mohammed Yahya Mujahid, LeT’s media contact, and Hafiz Saeed’s deputies, Abdul Salaam and Zafar Iqbal, are also listed.
The LeT is listed with its various aliases, such as al-Mansoorian, Paasban-i-Kashmir, Paasban-i-Ahle Hadith, Jamaatud Dawa and Falah-i-Insaniat Foundation.
According to the UN data, Ayman al-Zawahiri is still hiding somewhere in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border area. Several of his lieutenants are also on the list who, the UN believes, are hiding with him.
The second person on the list is another internationally known terrorist, Ramzi Mohammad bin al-Sheibah, who is identified as a Yemeni national, arrested in Karachi and handed over to the US authorities. More than a dozen suspected terrorists are listed in the same category.
The report, however, did not give the total number of entries in the updated UNSC list.
On the other hand, the terrorist entities that were allegedly based in Pakistan, worked from there or had links to Pakistani individuals, include Jaish-e-Mohammed, Afghan Support Committee, Lashkar-i-Jhangvi, Al Akhtar Trust International, Harkatul Jihad Islami, Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan, Jamaatul Ahrar and Khatiba Imam Al-Bukhari.
Some of them are listed as based in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border area, according to the report.
