New Delhi: With Eid-ul-Zuha close at hand, Pakistani terror groups are actively preparing to gather hides of s-l1000sacrificed animals in order to raise funds for their jihadi activities.

The collection of hides, subsequently sold to tanneries, is carried out through banned/under observation groups such as Jaish-e-Muhammed, Jammat-ud-Dawa, Tehreek Ghalba-e-Islam, Harkat-ul-Mujahideen,  Ahle Sunnat wal Jammat  and Ansar-ul-Ummah to avert legal action.

JeM issues receipts in the name of Al-Rehmat Trust whereas HuM and Ansar-ul-Ummah do the same in the name of Al-Hilal Trust. JuD uses Falah-e-Insaniyat as a front to raise funds and Ahle Sunnat uses Al-Esar Welfare Trust as a front.

As per the Punjab (Pakistan) home department estimates, as many as 10 million animals were sacrificed on Eid-ul-Zuha last year and their hides evaluated at 35,000 million Pakistani rupees.

As per the inputs from Punjab province (Pakistan), collection of animal hides is a lucrative way for funding of these groups.

A British court has convicted a mother of forcing her daughter to marry a relative almost twice her age in Pakistan, in a first successful prosecution of its type in England.

A jury at Birmingham Crown Court on Tuesday convicted the mother of four of duping her then 17-year-old daughter into travelling to Pakistan on the pretext of a family holiday in 2016 and forcing her to marry there, the BBC reported.

The mother was found guilty of two counts of forced marriage and was scheduled to be sentenced.

The court heard the girl had been entered into a “marriage contract” with the man years before in Pakistan and became pregnant at 13. The victim had an abortion on returning to the UK, with her doctor reporting his concerns to social services.

Prosecutors said the girl’s mother told them that her daughter and the man were just “two teenagers who had sneakily had sex” after she was referred, the BBC said.

The girl was tricked into travelling to Pakistan again in September 2016 and was forced by her mother to sign marriage papers.

When the daughter protested against the marriage, her mother threatened to burn her passport and assaulted her.

The mother was also convicted of perjury after she lied about the incident in the High Court.
