The Counter-Terrorism Department of Punjab Police had registered 41 FIRs against the Jamaat-ud-Dawah leaders, including 70-year-old Hafiz Saeed, in terror financing cases.
Saeed on January 23 moved the court against his possible arrest, arguing that the government, under alleged pressure from the US and India, wanted to arrest him.
The government last month had taken over the Jamaat-ud-Dawa's famous Muridke Markaz and Lahore's headquarters of Masjid Al Qadsia in Chauburji.
Under pressure to act against banned groups, Pakistan took control of a seminary and four dispensaries run by Saeed-linked Jamaat-ud-Dawa and Falah-i-Insaniat Foundation.
Pakistan's interior ministry issued a notification against the Saeed-founded Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) charity, as well as its associated organisation, the Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation.
Saeed, who was released from house arrest in Pakistan in November, carries a USD 10 million bounty on his head.
Lahore HC restrains Pakistan government from taking action against 2008 Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed
Justice Amin Aminuddin Khan heard Saeed's plea and refrained the government from taking any adverse action against him.
The government restricted fundraising or any kind of activities being carried by proscribed organisations and individuals despite the ban.
The government of Pakistan appears to be making an effort of mainstreaming terror organisations politically in the hope of reining in their militant activities, the editorial said.
Qamar Javed Bajwa's statement has come close on the heels of former Pakistan president General Parvez Musharraf declaring support for the terror outfits - Lashkar-e-Taiba and JuD.
Speaking on Pakistan's ARY News, Musharraf also said he liked the global terrorist, JuD chief Hafiz Saeed, and that he had met him.
The former president added he was always in favour of terrorist action in Kashmir, and the LeT and the JuD were the biggest forces to take on the Indian Army in the state.

Just ahead of the Mumbai 26/11 anniversary, Pakistan is back to its game of brinkmanship. It set free Hafiz Saeed, the mastermind of that attack.
Saeed in his speech also targeted the Pakistani government for "taking dictation from foreign masters" and spoke of "Indian atrocities" in Kashmir.
Saeed, who carries a USD 10 million bounty on his head for his role in terror activities, has been under house arrest in Pakistan since January this year.
