Many people offered prayers for those killed in the attack (on Islamabad’s Lal Masjid) at another hardline mosque in Lahore.

The ceremony was organised by the Jamaat-ud-Dawa organisation – a social welfare organisation linked to the banned Kashmiri militant group Lashkar-e-Toiba – which has been listed by the US as a terrorist organisation. [‘BBC’ emphasis added]

The ‘BBC’ deems the Jamaat-ud-Dawa a social welfare organisation, but the Lashkar-e-Taiba is a terrorist organisation not because it is one, or because the ‘BBC’ thinks so, but because the US has listed it as such.
