    LAHORE: The government of Pakistan's Punjab province has justified its allocation of over Rs 61 million to the largest centre of the Jamaat-ud-Dawah, saying the funds are needed to continue the services being provided to people by the facility.

    A spokesman of the Punjab government said the Punjab government had taken "administrative control of the welfare institutions being run by (the JuD) in compliance with Security Council resolutions of the United Nations".

    "There were two purposes behind taking control of these institutions: one, no one from the (JuD) could continue its activities, and two, to ensure that local people might not be deprived of the facilities like dispensary, hospital and schools etc," the spokesman said in a statement.

    The spokesman further said the Punjab government had appointed an official as an administrator to "ensure the provision of basic facilities to the local people".

    The Punjab government has been making these arrangements for these institutions since the end of 2008, he said.

    The PML-N government in Punjab announced a grant-in-aid of Rs 61.35 million for the administrator of the JuD's Markaz-e-Taiba at Muridkey in its budget for fiscal 2013-14.

    The allocation is listed on page 31 of the Punjab government's annual budget statement that has also been posted online.

    The budget also includes another allocation of Rs 350 million for a knowledge park at Muridkey and various other development initiatives across Punjab.

    The spokesman clarified that the proposed knowledge park spread over 88 kanals has "nothing to do" with the JuD.

    "The proposed knowledge park has been planned as an independent developmental initiative and has no relevance with the (JuD)," he said.

    Though the spokesman referred to the JuD as a "banned organisation", an Assistant Advocate General of the Punjab government told the Lahore High Court as far back as October 2009 that there was no notification to establish that the JuD was a banned group.

    The Assistant Advocate General said the JuD was put under some restrictions after the UN Security Council passed a resolution but the organisation was not on the list of proscribed groups.

    A recent report in the Pakistani daily The News said that the entrance of the Markaz-e-Taiba in Muridkey is still guarded by stick-wielding activists of the JuD.

    Sources told PTI that the Markaz-e-Taiba is practically in the control of the JuD despite the appointment of an administrator.

    Even Pakistani or foreign journalists cannot go inside the centre with taking permission from the media cell of the JuD.

    The sources said a few months ago, JuD chief Hafiz Mohammad Saeed held a convention at Markaz-e-Taiba that was largely attended by JuD activists.

    I looked deep into govt. as this is one of my subjects... and no RSS is not involved in govt. nor it is as pak army establishment... its just a organization which work on social and culture areas and as they have millions of members they sometimes use it as political influence which is just as all the other groups do in democracy.

    Govt. of India works according to Indian constitution not by will of RSS... only in conspiracies theories RSS is all almighty and powerful in truth a lot of Hindus don't care what RSS says or do.

    More than double standard, It's for you to look at the irony of the situation
    At one hand your govt. is defending a organisation banned in the USA
    but on the other hand RSS is not banned any where in the world even after our home minister giving adverse remarks over it.

    Thing to ponder over?

    Dear member it takes proof to ban an organisation.
    Go first get proof against RSS, then present them to USA and world community to ban RSS .
    But till then your rants are recipients with deaf ears.

    This is a sign that the Government is clueless and loosing its grip over its authority.

    There are lot of institutions in Pakistan which can do the work in a better way than this terrorist Hafiz saeed.

    In the first place what makes Hafiz saeed a prominent person for the GOP, he was neither elected by people nor he is from bureaucracy. The snakes which Pakistan is taming and feeding has already started biting it. With out learning from the past mistakes Pakistan is still continuing in the same path of self destruction.
