Merely banning Jamaat-ud-Dawah
(JuD’s) charity wing Falah-i-Insaniat (FIF) is not enough to get Pakistan off the grey list. In fact sources reveal that possibility of it’s moving from “grey” to “black” are very high. During its three-day visit to Islamabad in the last week of March, a delegation of
the Asia-Pacific Group (APG) on money laundering, a regional affiliate of the FATF expressed serious reservations over insufficient physical actions on the ground against banned groups to block flow of funds and activities.
The APG delegation noted that Pakistan had revised
its terror financing risk assessment but did not demonstrate a proper understanding of the terror financing risks posed by Islamic State group, al Qaida, Jamaat ud Dawah
(JuD), Falah-i-Insaniat (FIF), Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), Jaish-e-Muhammed (JeM), Haqqani Network and people affiliated with the Taliban.
APG also expressed concern over the government’s dual stance on action against the ones collecting donations from mosques.
People of Pakistan are once again going to pay for the sins committed by the politicians and their mentors. It’s an open secret
that these sins were perpetrated by the jihadi forces which are being backed by ISI and ISPR. Pakistan is loosing out to those who are managing top echelons of government and Pakistan Army. Pakistan has given out their land to the Chinese for their OBOR, they
are accepting their currency, their language. Chinese are overzealously marrying Pakistani women. Pakistan is sending their Army to Saudi Arabia to help in their internal war, helping Islamic countries around the world with advanced science and technology
yet, all show their backs when FATF knocks the door.
In all of this, the only loser is a common Pakistani.
