ANCHOR: Indian Minister of State for External Affairs is asking the United Nations Security Council to condem Jamaat-ud-Dawa. The charity organization is believed to be a front for Islamist militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba, suspected of instigating the Mumbai attacks. STORY: The Indian Minister of State for External Affairs E. Ahamed believes the UN Security Council should help punish anyone responsible for the deadly Mumbai attacks. He believes Pakistani group Jamaat-ud-Dawa should be added to the UN terrorism blacklist, since it's suspected of instigating the attacks that killed 179 people. [E. Ahamed, Indian Minister of State for External Affairs]: "All those who were in any way responsible for the Mumbai terrorist attack, wherever they may be must be brought to justice." Charity organization Jamaat-ud-Dawa is widely regarded as a front for the Islamist militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba. Ahamed also wants the group banned from travel and its assets frozen under Security Council resolution 1267, imposing sanctions on supporters of al Qaeda, Osama bin Laden or the Taliban. He also says New Delhi expects Islamabad to act decisively against any militants operating in Pakistan, who might have been involved in preparing the attacks.
