Despite being on the Pakistan's Interior Ministry's watch list for being banned by the United Nations, Mumbai terror mastermind Hafeez Saeed led militant group Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) is all set to launch a rigorous hide collection campaign during this Eid.

The banned terror group has set up collection camps in different areas of Lahore.

The organisation's central camp at Choburji has huge banners, appealing to citizens to donate hides.

According to the Express Tribune, the JuD is not only appealing for hides, but also soliciting cash donations in lieu of sacrificial animals.

To facilitate donors, JuD distributed large shopping bags, printed with phone numbers of its all 25 collections centers, to households in Lahore, the report said.

They have asked people to put the animal hide in the bag and drop it at the nearest JuD camp or call on any of the printed numbers to have a JuD representative come and collect the hide from their residence, it added.

According to the paper, the organisation has been preparing for two months to collect hides, which are a major source of revenue for religious and philanthropic organisations. (ANI)
