Facing heat from FATF, 26/11 planner Sajid Mir who was a myth becomes a reality in Pakistan

New Delhi, Jun 25: Pakistan denied his existence at first and when the pressure increased, they said he was not a handler but a Mullah. The man is Sajid Mir who Pakistan claims to have arrested.

Mir was David Headley’s handler who carried out the reconnaissance of Mumbai prior to the attacks of 26/11. An ISI asset, Mir carries an FBI bounty of $5 million on his head. In arresting Mir, Pakistan has once again displayed that it is all so predictable and the action comes at a time when the cash strapped nation is trying to wriggle out of the Grey List of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).

Pakistan has denied the very existence of Mir to such an extent that one had wondered whether the man was a myth.

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.

The statement by senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy that when a Pakistan cricket team comes to India then ISI agents too visit is an interesting one and there has been one major instance in the past to support that view.

When a Pakistan cricket team visits India, there is permission granted to several others who travel to India as fans to cheer their national team. However in the year 2005 one dangerous fan slipped into India with the rest and what he did was there for everyone to see on that horrific night of 26/11.
