Even as India and Pakistan take each other on at Sunday ICC Champions Trophy final, a battle of other sorts is going begin between the two hostile nations on the same day in Spain, Valencia.
A news agency reports that Indian government delegates will be in Spain to “expose” Pakistan – for deceiving the international community on terror funding – in front of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), which is the international terror financing watchdog.As per the report, a delegation from India, led by the Enforcement Directorate Chief Karnal Singh, will brief the entire forum where 198 member countries and the UN, IMF and the World Bank to discuss ways to curtail terror funding globally.
Top government sources have told a news agency that it has prepared a detailed report on Pakistan, which will give a holistic view of how the country funds terror ops in border regions, especially the Line of Control (LoC). The detailed report blames Pakistan for supporting terror outfits like the JuD, Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammad and others.
As per a recent TIMES NOW investigation, a nexus between Pakistan’s ISI and separatist group Hurriyat has also been established. This point, too, may be one highlighting topic during the meeting, in view of the recent terror-funded violence in the Valley. India will also brief the international community of how the terror groups such as JuD are spreading their tentacles fast to several countries such as Yemen, Afghanistan, Somalia and other countries.
Sources have told that the Indian delegates will tell FATF that Pakistan has taken no efforts to curtail terror activities emanating out of the region and that every promise made by the neighbours with regards to terrorism was “paper activity” devoid of any groundwork. Intelligence gathered by the Indian special agencies will also be taken into account, as the India delegates will point out to FATF members that Pakistan had seized only 69 JuD accounts and its front Falah-i-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF) in the last 15 years, which is deplorable.
The issue of Hafiz Muhammad Saeed will also be pulled up by India, in view of his organisations in Pakistan and his intentions of spreading terror.”JuD, FIF and its student wing Al-Muhammadiya Students (AMS) have indulged in organising lectures, rallies, meetings, fund raising activities and recruiting youngsters to take up jihad against India. Global terrorists Hafiz Saeed, Abdul Rehman Makki and others of JuD have openly engaged in these activities apart from funeral prayers for terrorists who are sent to India to attack security forces and are killed, but Pakistan has allowed them to continue their activities,” a senior home ministry official told a news agency.
“Pakistan, if it doesn’t take any action, faces the risk of being named a major defaulter of counter-terrorism measures,” a government official said.While Pakistan claims to have cut down terror groups and operations in the region, the frequent attacks across the border, are clear indications that those assertions are nothing but a mere “eye-wash”.
