Jamaat-ud-Dawa, the Islamic charity wing of the Jihadist terrorist group Lashkar e Taiba, has just held a major conference in Pakistan.
The organization called for a Jihad against India, Israel and the United States and tied its charity relief work to converting hundreds of Hindu to Islam.
About JuD’s increasing shift to relief efforts, senior journalist Arif Jamal and the author of the book Call for Transnational Jihad: Lashkar-e-Taiba (1985-2014), says: “JuD hid itself behind the charity work in the wake of the 9/11 attacks when it became difficult for it to operate openly as a jihadist organisation. This proved quite a successful strategy. This made JuD an acceptable organisation for those sections of the Pakistan which normally would not support a jihadist organisation.”
