A US lawmaker has introduced a legislation in the Congress seeking a probe into an American non-profit body's activities in Pakistan and Kashmir.

The activities include the reported collaboration with components of Lashkar-e-Taiba, the outlawed outfit which carried out the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks. The resolution, introduced by Republican Congressman Jim Banks from Indiana, has been moved to House Foreign Relations Committee for necessary action.

The resolution said, 'Helping Hand for Relief and Development', a registered charitable organisation, openly partnered in 2017 with Pakistan's Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation, which the US government designated as a terrorist organisation in 2016.

The resolution also calls on the US Agency for International Development, the State Department, the Department of Homeland Security and other relevant agencies to halt all partnerships and funding arrangements with groups affiliated with Jamaat-e-Islami and its domestic affiliates.
