New Delhi: India will emphasise Pakistan’s role in the free run given to banned outfits like Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), and Falah-i-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF) for raising funds for terrorism in the name of charity, at a global discussion on financing of terrorism in Paris on Sunday.

According to a report, delegates from 190 countries, the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), United Nations and multilateral agencies will discuss terrorism financing at a weeklong summit starting Sunday.

 

India will also raise the issue of funds collected in Pakistan in the name of slain Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani.

Islamabad has claimed to have taken several measures under international pressure against these UN listed groups, but India will raise the point that JuD is still running in Pakistan, which means that asset freezing and prohibitions on collecting funds are not comprehensively implemented.

Indian officials say that Jamaat-ud Dawa and its branches still openly hold public rallies and collect funds, and accuse Pakistan of lying to the world.

 

The Indian delegation, which includes officials from MHA, MEA and other agencies, will also share steps taken by the Narendra Modi-led government in curbing terror funding, said the report.

In its last report to FATF in 2015, India had said that Pakistan-based terror outfit Hizbul Mujahideen was receiving funds originating from Pakistan through different channels.
