(PTI) Lahore, Ta. 13
An anti-terrorism court in Lahore sentenced two of Hafiz Saeed’s associates to 15 years in prison. Fear of a blacklist ahead of the Financial Action Task Force meeting has prompted Pakistan to take action against terrorists.
Pakistan is likely to be blacklisted at the 2021 meeting of the Global Terror Financing Watchdog Financial Action Task Force (FATF). To avoid this black list, the Pakistani government has started a drama of action against terrorists.
Earlier, Pakistan had issued an arrest warrant against Masood Azhar, claiming that Pakistan was taking action against the terrorists. After that, now the manager of terrorist organizations Hafiz Saeed has a play of action against Sagarito.
An anti-terrorism court in Lahore sentenced two members of Jamaat-ud-Dawa, Hafiz Saeed – Yahya Mujahid and Zafar Iqbal to 15 years in prison.
A Lahore court has taken action against the terrorists regarding the funding of terror. Abdul Rahman Mukki, a relative of Hafiz, was also sentenced to six months in jail.
Lahore court officials said the three accused were in jail. The court sentenced the three to life imprisonment.
FATF is scheduled to meet in 2021. This is likely to blacklist Pakistan. Earlier in June 2016, the FATF placed Pakistan on a gray list for financing terrorism. He also urged the government to take appropriate action against terrorists by placing it in the gray list in 2014 too. The deadline was extended in 2020 due to the Corona epidemic. Now, when the meeting takes place in 2021, there is a strong possibility that Pakistan will be blacklisted.
