But such measures don't mean the storm is expected to blow over. The Pakistani embassy in Washington has told the government that the US administration has most probably already decided upon designating the LeT and JeM as FTOS, consequently meeting the long-standing Indian demand. Sources say US intelligence officials have compiled enough evidence to show that Osama bin Laden had been funding these two organisations.

Both organisations deny this charge but the Musharraf government has already barred LeT chief Hafiz Mohammad Saeed and JeM supremo Maulana Masood Azhar from holding protest rallies against the attacks on Afghanistan. The two have been warned that their anti-US stance could force the State Department to place them on the FTO list, leaving the Pakistani government no option but to ban them from operating in the country.
