According to a circular issued by the Punjab Home Department and despatched to the senior police officers of the districts, the Department beside re-banning 23 organisations, had included 1690 office-bearers whose names appeared in the 4th Schedule. The police has been directed to keep a vigilant eye on them. The DIGs and other senior police officers concerned have been informed about the organisations. The statement said Sipah-e-Sahaba had been operating under a new name Millat-e-Islamia Pakistan, Jaish-e-Muhammad as Khudam-ul-Islam and Tehreek-e-Jafria Islami under the Tehreek-e-Pakistan. Under the ban by the United Nations, three organisations Jamaat-ud-Dawa, Al-Rasheed Trust and Al-Akhtar Trust face three types of bans; that is, first, their heads, including Hafiz Muhammad Saeed cannot visit foreign countries, secondly, arms licences will not be issued and their bank accounts will be frozen.
