Pakistan to curb financing of terror groupsDecember 8th, 2008 - 4:26 pm ICT by ANI
Lahore, Dec.8 (ANI): The Pakistani Government, in its bid to tackle the terror problem amidst rising international pressure, has ordered the police to prevent banned militant organisations from collecting the hides of sacrificial animals. After the Mumbai attack, India blamed Pakistan for not cracking down on banned organisations masterminding such attacks.
The Pakistan Government, however, has denied the Indian claims and decided to take extraordinary measures to neutralize all aspersions being raised against it. Police officers have also been directed to ensure that militant groups do not install banners for publicity.
These measures are being taken to ensure that banned groups do not establish collection centres.
However, a member of the banned militant organisation Lashkar-e-Toiba said that the organisation has already devised a grassroots-level strategy to collect hides, as reported by the Daily Times.
Each member of the organisation has been provided with a target for hide collection from their respective areas. The hides would be sent to the mainstream through a well-organised set-up, member of the banned terrorist outfit added. (ANI)
