Jamaat-ud-Dawa, the parent body of banned terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba that carried out the 2008 Mumbai attacks, has been allocated over Rs. 61 million by Pakistan's Punjab province government headed by PM Nawaz Sharif's PML-N party.
Besides this grant-in-aid for the JuD centre
known as 'Markaz-e-Taiba', the provincial government has allocated Rs. 350 million for setting up a 'knowledge park' at the centre.
Details of the allocations were presented in budget documents tabled in the Punjab Assembly on Monday by the PML-N government led by chief minister Shahbaz Sharif.
The goverment has regularly allocated money in its budget towards running of the centre.
