The JD was previously
banned in January 2001 when it operated under the name of Lashkar-e-Taiba.
Currently, JD publishes the weeklies Ghazwa, Zarb-e-Taiba and Taibaat along with
the monthlies Adawa and Babul Islam in Urdu. It also publishes the monthlies
Voice of Islam and Al-Ribaat in English and Arabic, respectively. These
publications are said to propagate jihad and highlight the nationwide activities

following a decision made during a recent meeting chaired by organisation chief
Hafiz Saeed Ahmad. Yahya Mujahid, the spokesman for the organisation, did not
confirm such plans.
