Months after Jamaat-ud-Dawa publications were taken off stands in Pakistan following the UN Security Council ban on the outfit,the periodicals are said to be back in circulation under new names. And the other anti-India terror outfit,Jaish-e-Mohammed,has inaugurated a new madrasa in Bahawalpur on behalf of its head Maulana Masood Azhar.

This flies in the face of India’s diplomatic efforts to get Pakistan to rein in these outfits after the Mumbai terror attack. With the Pakistan government failing to build a credible case against LeT founder and JuD head Hafiz Mohammed Saeed,sources said,the outfit’s propaganda machine has suddenly become more energetic.

JuD’s weekly newspaper Ghazwah

is said to have reappeared as Jarrar. Women’s monthly Tayyibat is now

replaced by Al Sifat,students monthly Zarb-e-Taiba is said to have been renamed Akhbaar-e-Taiba while another periodical Al-Daawa is said to have the hit stands under the name Al-Harmain.

According to information available with New Delhi,these new publications have gradually come back into circulation in the past five to six months. The publications are cautious not to mention JuD or LeT,or even give names of militants killed in Kashmir but glorify activities of recently mushroomed front organisations like Tehreek-e-Azadi-e-Kashmir and Tehreek-e-Hurmat- Rasool. It is widely known that these fronts have been leading the fight against proscribing JuD and many of the JuD leaders are part of these organisations.

The TAK recently organised a series of programmes under the Kashmir Bazor-e-Shamsheer (Kashmir through sword) across Pakistan that found wide coverage in these publications. Fierce anti-India speeches were delivered in Lahore,Rawalpindi,Faisalabad,Multan and Burewala by JuD leaders like Amir Hamza,Saifullah Mansoor,Hafiz Abdur Rauf among others.
