Why a dishonest Pakistan remains in the Grey List for terror financing

New Delhi, Mar 05: Pakistan has once again been retained in the Grey List by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF). The country was told that it needed to do more in probing and prosecuting senior leaders and commanders of the UN designated terrorist groups for terror financing.

Pakistan has repeatedly failed to act against its proxies such as the Lashkar-e-Tayiba and Jaish-e-Mohammad. Pakistan also has failed to act against the many members of this outfit and has only made symbolic arrests of the chiefs of these groups when the heat is raised on it.

Several terrorists of both the above mentioned groups involved in attacks such as the one in Mumbai and Pulwama are walking around scot free. Operatives such as Sajid Mir who have played a crucial role in the Mumbai 26/11 attacks do not exist under Pakistan’s radar. Islamabad in fact till date denies the existence of this person.
