PARIS (AFP) - Pakistan said Saturday there was no evidence that Jamaatud Daawa it cracked down on this week, after the UN listed it as a terror organisation, was engaged in any acts of violence. "If there is evidence (of terror activities) we will take action," Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said when asked about Jamaatud Daawa, accused of being a front for Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Kashmiri group India blames for recent attacks in Mumbai. "They're running schools, hospitals, dispensaries but if this organisation or elements in it are getting into a mode of violence," then authorities will take action, Shah Mehmooed Qureshi said on a trip to Paris. "Our minds are not shut," he told reporters on the eve of a meeting in Paris of senior envoys from Afghanistan, its neighbours and the world's great powers to discuss the war-torn country's future. Pakistan also rejected Indian accusations that it was the "epicentre of terrorism" and accused some Indian leaders of using it as a convenient scapegoat for their own political agendas. "Because of domestic political compulsions, some Indian leaders have been looking for a scapegoat" for the recent Mumbai attacks, foreign minister said when asked to react to the Indian prime minister's accusation. "And when you want a scapegoat, Pakistan is (for historical reasons) the obvious choice," Shah Mehmood Qureshi told reporters in Paris, adding that "we have to rise above our petty politics for the larger interest of the region." He did not name any of the Indian leaders he was referring to. Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh made the accusation on Thursday and also said his country could not be satisfied with "mere assurances on an end to terror emanating from Pakistan." Qureshi insisted that Islamabad was at the forefront of the global fight against terror and noted that "India does not blame the Pakistani government" for last month's carnage in Mumbai. He said Islamabad was doing its utmost to crack down on any terrorist groups on its territory, adding that Pakistan had offered to send a high-level team to carry out a joint probe with Indian officials into the attacks. "We've made an offer. We're waiting for their response," he said. The talks will put Qureshi in the same room as Indian deputy foreign minister Anand Sharma, but he said that neither he nor the Indian minister had requested a bilateral meeting in Paris. Qureshi noted that "one of the pillars" of the recently elected government in Pakistan was normalisation of relations with its giant neighbour. The strikes on Mumbai have severely strained relations between the two nuclear-armed states but India, which has fought three wars with Pakistan since independence from Britain, has ruled out military action. Pakistan on Thursday had placed the Jamaatud Daawa leader Hafiz Saeed under house arrest and ordered its assets frozen after the United Nations listed it as a terror group the day before. The move came as Pakistan faces intense international pressure to crack down on militant organisations on its soil in the wake of last month's deadly attacks in India. Jamaatud Daawa is one of Pakistan's biggest charities and is known in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir for its relief work after a devastating 2005 earthquake.
