United Nations terror list has 139 Pakistan entries”

According to Dawn, the list includes all those individuals who have either lived in Pakistan, operated from there or have been associated with organisations that used Pakistani territory to carry out their operations. India's most wanted gangster Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar is also among the list, who has held several passports issued in Rawalpindi and Karachi, as per the United Nations Security Council.

In a major embarrassment for Pakistan, the United Nations Security Council's consolidated list of terrorists and terror-supporting entities has 139 entries from the Islamic nation.

Ayman al-Zawahiri, the heir apparent of Osama bin Laden, is also listed as a terrorist by UNSC. The UN list has also identified several of his aides, who the UN believe are hiding with him.

The second person on the list is another internationally known terrorist, Ramzi Mohammad bin al-Sheibah, who is identified as a Yemeni national, arrested in Karachi and handed over to the USA authorities.

The UN list says that the underworld don owns a palatial bungalow in the hilly area of Noorabad, Karachi.

Last month, U.S. lawmakers were told that the D-company, like Mexican drug organisations, had diversified in many other fields and had built a powerful transnational crime-terror organisation. "They traffic weapons, counterfeit DVDs, and provide financial services through their extensive system of hawala operators", Dr Louise Shelley, Professor, Schar School of Policy and Government, at the George Mason University told lawmakers. While Ayman al-Zawahiri - the current leader of al-Qaeda - figures on top of the list, other prominent names here are that of Dawood Ibrahim - wanted in India and shielded by Pakistan's ISI, LeT's Hafiz Saeed, his deputies Abdul Salaam and Zafar Iqbal. All three are also wanted by Interpol.

Jamaat-ud-Dawa is mentioned in the list as one of the aliases of Lashkar-e-Taiba. The UN data asserted that he is hiding somewhere "in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border area".
