Pakistan has reportedly rebranded outfit of Hafiz Saeed Jamaat-ul-Daawa (JuD) named Tehreek-e-Azadi Jammu and Kashmir (TAJK). Saeed was recently put under house arrest and a crackdown was launched against the outfit.

TAJK's name was mentioned in the National Counter Terrorism Authority's (NACTA) list of proscribed organisations that also mentions that the outfit was banned on June 8, 2017, reports the Express Tribune.

Earlier in January, Pakistan government had placed JuD and its wing the Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation (FIF) on the watch list and put on the second schedule under Section 11-EEE (1) of the Anti-Terrorism Act, 1997.

In 2012, the United States announced a bounty of USD10 million on Saeed for his alleged role in 2008 Mumbai attacks.
