A detailed list of terrorist bodies was presented in the National Assembly by Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Friday. From amongst the 43 banned groups, two were banned before the 9/11 attacks for propagating sectarian violence namely Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and Sipha-e-Muhammad – both declared illegal in 2001
