US imposes sanctions on Pak-based terrorists

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail
The US has imposed sanctions on Pakistan-based extremists and an organisation run by Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed’s JuD group as part of an effort to disrupt their leadership and fund-raising networks.

These sanctions seek to disrupt the financial support networks of terrorists based in Pakistan who have provided support to the Taliban, al-Qaeda, ISIS, and LeT for recruitment and funding of suicide bombers and other violent insurgent operations.

Meanwhile, a UN committee has condemned the “widespread practice of torture” in Pakistan by police, the military and intelligence agencies. It has also called on Islamabad to implement urgent reforms to the law that can be applied without exception, including to the army, which is regularly accused of abusing its powers.

The National Commission of Human Rights, an organisation linked to Pakistan’s parliament, welcomed the report, saying “the publication could help start a conversation about torture” in the country.
