In an attempt to mislead FATF, Pakistan registers fake FIRs against terror outfits

The global watchdog had in June last year placed Pakistan on the grey list of countries and had 'strongly' urged Pakistan to swiftly complete its action plan to curb terror financing, failing which the terror state might face the possibility of getting 'blacklisted'.

Ahead of the crucial meeting of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), scheduled to be held in Bangkok in the month of October, Pakistan is trying to create an eyewash by registering fake FIRs against the terror groups that they have been safeguarding for all this while.

According to evidence provided by some well-based sources, Pakistan has been blatantly attempting to mislead the global community. On July 1, Gujranwala police station registered an FIR that was based on the information provided by a ‘source’ about a land deal by members of banned Daawat-wal-Irshad, a subsidiary organisation of Lashkar-e-Tayyeba (LeT) headed by Hafiz Saeed.

“It is submitted that at 1:30 pm, the undersigned along with Mumtaz Ahmed ASI, Irfan Ahmed 1199/C and Rizwan Azam 1184/C was present near Usman Chowk Malikwal and the source informed that Muhammed Ali s/o Salim Akhtar caste Rajput r/o Malikwal city provides a piece of land (18 Maria and 6 Sarsai) with its Khaiwat number 449, Khatoni No. 839 to 840, located near Usman Chowk (Rana Town) Mohalla Faisalabad, district Malikwal to banned Daawat-wal-Irshad, a subsidiary organisation of Lashkar-e-Tayyeba, knowing that banned LeT and DwI are involved in terrorist activities and the mentioned property will be used for propagation of terrorist activities and by using this property, these banned organisations can collect funds for the terrorist activities and financial help of the terrorists”, reads an FIR copy accessed by ANI.

This FIR has been drafted in lay terms and may not stand in the scrutiny of law at subsequent stages, said legal sources. Moreover, the FIR has the mentioning of generalised acts of terrorism with no specific acts connected with law, which makes it weak and fake, opinioned experts.

Also, the FIR does not have any mention about Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) or Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation (FIF). The FIR mentions the name of Daawat-wal-Irshad, an old name of JuD. The timeline of the incident and individual roles are also missing which bolsters Pakistan’s nefarious designs to mislead the FATF.

The final meeting of the FAFT is scheduled to be held in the first week of October this year.

The global watchdog had in June last year placed Pakistan on the grey list of countries and had ‘strongly’ urged Pakistan to swiftly complete its action plan to curb terror financing and money laundering and had also asked Pakistan to reassess the operation of banned terrorist outfits in the country by September 2019, failing which the terror state might face the possibility of getting ‘blacklisted‘.

Unfortunately, Pakistan has a history of retracting from its commitments. The world, and India, in particular, has witnessed this fraudulence umpteen number of times. Pakistan has violated the ceasefire along the International Border (IB) and the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir more than 720 times this year, the highest in past seven years. The figure represents a 230 per cent rise compared to 2016 – it is also the highest count in over a decade.

Pakistan, in its attempt to tackle this global pressure, has once again dusted and deployed the same standard operating procedure which the terror state has been trying to spin-off to keep stringing the Americans on the issue of terrorism.

On the eve of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s US visit, the country made a show of cracking down 26/11 terror attack mastermind and terror organisation Lashkar-e-Taiba chief, Hafiz Saeed. This again was an attempted eyewash as although Pakistan had claimed that Hafiz Saeed had been remanded to judicial custody, it was reported that he was in fact put up in the jail superintendent’s bungalow.

Moreover, to save itself from the FAFT sanctions, Pakistan had pretended to halt intrusion across the Line of Control and shut down as many as 20 terror camps operating in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir.
