LAHORE: Pakistan’s Law Enforcement Agencies, on Wednesday, arrested the deputy-chief of the banned outfit, Jamat-ud-Dawa, Maulana Abdul-Rehman Makki– a brother-in-law of Hafiz Saeed.
According to officials, the arrest came following the provocative speech by Maulana Makki, who in recent days slammed the government for initiating crackdown against the banned outfits in Gujranwala.
Makki has been arrested under the Maintenance of Public Order Act.
Moreover, the sources in Punjab’s police reveal that Maulana Makki appealed for the monetary donations pertaining to affiliated charity organization with Jamat-ud-Dawah– Falahah-e-Insaniyat and slashed the measures taken in the light of Financial Action Task Force (FATF) guidelines.
Pakistan has to comply with the recommendations of the FATF to avoid being blacklisted which could affect the country in a massive way.
Currently, Pakistan stands on the grey-list, as the FATF is seeking concrete measures against the banned outfits, money laundering especially transferred o militant organizations, etc.
The FATF will overview the progress made by Islamabad against outlawed outfits in June to determine what steps to be taken in accordance with measures taken.
