July 20, 2021: On Monday, leaders from across the political arena spoke up against the Indian regime after the country acknowledged that the Narendra Modi-led government has ensured that Pakistan is included in the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) gray list.

Speaking up on social media, they demanded an explanation for the “Indian entry” into global money laundering surveillance, which is seen as a negation of Pakistan’s long-standing position that New Delhi has violated the FATF principles and introduced political affairs on a technical forum.

A day earlier, Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar had said that the Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government had ensured that Pakistan remained on the FATF’s “gray list”.

Commenting on the admission, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that Pakistan had “permanently maintained” that India had pursued FATF politics and the recent Indian statement had made clear its illegitimate desire. He tweeted, “It is embarrassing for the Modi government to manipulate a key technical forum for a narrow political design against Pakistan, but not surprisingly.”

Federal Minister for Energy Hamad Azhar proved that Jaishankar’s statement “can only confirm what Pakistan has been saying along with India. India is actively politicizing and undermining the techinal process and the spirit of the FATF.”

He said that Pakistan’s progress in fulfilling the FATF action plan items was “undeniable” and that it would soon complete its action plans. The progress Pakistan has made on the action points has also been aknowledged by White House spokesperson Ned Price.

Federal Human Rights Minister Shirin Mazari said the Modi-led government’s “disappointment over its failed Pak policies” had led it to “movements of despair”. She observed that the Indian Foreign Minister’s statement proved that India was trying to “destroy the credibility” of international bodies such as the FATF in order to “damage its technical work through political conspiracies”.

He tweeted, “India’s membership of FATF becomes a ‘question mark’ under the Modi [government’s] government financing terrorism in the neighboring country. Commenting on policies of the Modi-led government, Shipping and Maritime Affairs Minister Ali Haider Zaidi asked: “So is India influencing the world’s money laundering task force?”

PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif maintained that India’s entry “raised serious questions about the integrity of the FATF’s decision-making process”. “The watchman must make it clear that it is not being used against Pakistan at the behest of others!” Shahbaz said.
