Jamaatud Dawa may rename its publications

ISLAMABAD, May 30(Daily Times): Leading jihadi outfit Jamaatud Dawa (JD) plans to resume publication of its entire catalogue seven publications with new names over fears that the government may impose a possible ban on the existing names.

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 of JD.

Sources informed that JD would rename its publications 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.
