Mumbai terror attacks mastermind and terrorist Hafiz Muhammad Saeed’s terror outfit Jamaat-ud-Daawah (JUD) has been renamed to ‘Tehreek Azadi Jammu and Kashmir’.

Earlier, Hafiz Saeed was put on the Exit Control List by Pakistan government.

Hundreds of supporters of Jamat-ud-Dawah staged protests across major cities of Pakistan, including Lahore and Islamabad, against the government’s decision to place the 2001 Parliament attack alleged mastermind under house arrest.

Following the Pakistan government’s crackdown against the JuD, Saeed was detained late on Monday by the Punjab police at his residence in Lahore’s Johar Town.

The Exit Control List also effectively barred 37 other from exiting Pakistan.
