Pakistan continues to serve as safe haven for terror groups: US

Pakistan continues to serve as safe haven for terror groups: US

Washington, Jun 25(UNI) The United States state department, in its 'Country Reports on Terrorism 2019', has noted that Pakistan continues to be a safe haven for terrorist groups.

The report points out that Pakistan continues to allow groups targeting India and those targeting Afghanistan to operate from its soil.

Among the India-centric groups, the report listed Lashkar-e-Taiba(LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohammed(JeM) and their affiliates and front organisations.

Among the groups targeting Afghanistan it listed the Afghan Taliban and the Haqqani network.

The report notes that Pakistan took some modest steps in 2019 to check terror financing and to restrain some anti-India militant groups following the Pulwama terror attacks in February. However, the south Asian nation is yet to take decisive actions against India and Afghanistan-focused militants that would effectively undermine their operational capability.

Though the report praises the Pakistani government for playing a 'constructive' role in the US-Taliban talks in 2019 it makes it clear that Pakistan’s progress on the most difficult aspects of its 2015 National Action Plan to counter terrorism remains unfulfilled, especially its pledge to dismantle all terrorist organizations without delay and discrimination.

B’desh: 'Deaths in crossfire' in name of anti-drug campaign galore

09 Aug 2020 | 4:32 PM

Dhaka, Aug 9 (UNI) Many people allegedly died in crossfire in the name of anti-drug campaign, though the government of Bangladesh has always claimed that its law enforcers do not work outside the law.
Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), an elite force, is one of the law enforcing agencies in the country.
A 35-year-old man named Suleiman (pseudonym) lived in a slum in Dhaka with his eight-year-old daughter. According to his family, he struggled to collect his daily meal.
Suleiman's family told Amnesty International, a UK-based human rights group, that he had called a family member before he was killed in a so-called gunfight, that police had demanded a bribe of BDT 20,000 in exchange for his release.
