Indian minister’s confessional statement proves FATF a dummy body: Rabbani

July 21, 2021

ISLAMABAD: Former Senate chairman Senator Mian Raza Rabbani said on Tuesday that the statement of the Indian minister has laid bare the fact that FATF is a dummy organisation and a tool in the hands of the imperialist powers to pressurise developing states for their national security priorities in furtherance of their political agenda.

“The government in its zeal to pander to international imperialism has made Pakistan a client state and bartered its political sovereignty,” he said while reacting on the admission statement of the Indian foreign minister of FATF politicisation through which he admitted that India ensure keeping Pakistan on FATF grey list. Rabbani said in the process the citizens were deprived of their Fundamental Rights under the Constitution, 1973 and subjected to international jurisdictions without the due process of law. “Parliament was reduced to a rubber stamp as it churned out Bill after Bill that was ultra vires of Fundamental Rights in the Constitution, 1973,” he said. He said the government through these legislations has exposed Pakistanis to international jurisdictions, without the due process of law. “This will have far reaching consequences as the Washington-Tel Aviv-Delhi nexus pursues its political agenda in the region,” he said. Senator Rabbani said the government was oblivious of the Indian game, as it kept on rapping the rag, that this time we will be out of the grey list, but that was not to be. The former Senate chairman demanded that Parliament must now amend these laws to the extent of being repugnant to Fundamental Rights, Constitution, 1973 and subjecting citizens to international jurisdiction without the due process of law.
