Jamaat al Dawa al Quran

Jump to: navigation, search

Jamaat al Dawa al Quran is an Pakistani organization notable because American counter-terrorism analysts suspected it had ties to terrorism.[1]

American counter-terrorism analysts transliterated the Arabic name into English inconsistently. American counter-terrorism analysts refer to the organization by the initials JDQ.

The American counter-terrorism analysts who prepared the allegations asserted that the JDQ was an extremist group. But it is not on any of the official US watchlists.[2]
