Pakistan Prime Minister has a clear refusal on action against dreaded terrorist Masood Azhar on the global platform and this is not shocking to them who are aware of the terror factory.

The Financial Action Task Force has been keeping Pakistan in its Grey list for last four years. The sustained scrutiny by FATF monitors Pakistan’s flow of funds into terrorist activities since 2018 keeping  Pakistan’s record so far.

Now knowing about the gravity of Masood Azhar being at large, Shehbaz Shareef stated that he is in Afghanistan and they have requested the Taliban government to hand him over to Paksitan.

On the other hand, Pakistan PM Shehbaz Sharif being encountered with the question if he would like to opt for an action against the Jaish-e-Muhammad chief Masood Azhar, he indirectly refuses to do so.

During the SCO Summit in Uzbekistan the Pakistan Prime Minister asked by the media on his action against Masood Azhar, he did not respond.

JeM chief Masood Azhar has been globally designated as an international terrorist by the United States. The question was simple with its message loud and clear but following the refusal to reply, the journalist asking the question was dissuaded by PM Sharif’s security personnel.

One of the guards around Shehbaz was heard saying – “I think it is enough, please.”

On the other hand media reports confirm that a letter was sent Taliban-ruled Afghanistan by Pakistan  but that was an eye wash before the inspection by the monitors from FATF.
