Khyber Pakhtunkhwa govt. shuts down flood relief camps of terror outfitsAugust 23rd, 2010 - 2:27 pm ICT by ANI
Peshawar, Aug 23(ANI): The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government has launched a crackdown against banned terror outfits, including Jamaat-ud-Daawa (JuD), which are carrying out relief activities in the flood-hit north western province of Pakistan.
According to The Nation, the KP Government has shut down 16 camps established by the banned outfits in 22 districts of the province.
The relief camps were established in Peshawar, Nowshera, Charsadda, Swat,
Dir, DI Khan, Shangla and other flood-affected districts.
The provincial government has also issued directives to all District Coordination Officers (DCO) to strictly monitor the activities of the outfits involved in the aid efforts.
The DCOs have also been directed to take strict action against the outfits if they are collecting donations by using different names.
The Jamaat-ud-Daawa (JuD), the charity wing of the dreaded terror group-Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), is providing food, medicines and money to flood affected people in numerous relief camps in Khyber Pakhtunkwa.
While the Gilani government has been struggling to collect funds for the flood-victims, the JuD, under its latest humanitarian face Falah-e-Insaniat, had earlier claimed that it raises 120 million rupees daily, which is equal to the total amount the Prime Minister relief fund has with it.
Falah-e-Insaniat Vice-President Mian Adil said the people of country do not trust the government and added that the JuD had proved its worth during 2005 earthquake relief and rescue operations.
“We have thousands of volunteers, hundreds of collection points. The government can do nothing compared with us. We have the people of Pakistan - good Muslims - behind us. No-one trusts the government. No will give their money to them. But they saw us at work during the 2005 earthquake and know we will help again,” Adil had said. (ANI)
