Pakistan’s Minister for Interior identified as Ijaz Ahmed Shah had admitted that Pakistan spent billions of rupees on terror organisations like Jamat-Ud-Dawa (JUD).
“We have given organisations like JuD and Jaish-e-Mohammad billions of rupees to function. We have taken over their institutions”, Shah admitted.
Speaking to a Pakistani news channel, Shah added, “We have spent millions of rupees on JuD. We spent years on motivating them for war. Now, we need to demotivate the members of these organisations and bring them down to the mainstream.”
Pakistan has been in a constant state of denial of any state involvement as far as funding terror activities are concerned.
Having been already on the gray-list of the FATF, Pakistan is now having to deal with internal groups who have started raising a voice.
Shah also further added that citizens are not believing us on Kashmir because of the name we have made for ourself.
“You earn a name for yourself in the society. If people are not believing us in the international community, who is responsible for that? Why is nobody believing us on Kashmir? We need to contemplate on that” Shah said.
Ijaz Shah is an ex-Brigadier of the Pakistan Army and has also extended his contribution at the ISI during his service years.
Pakistan’s ministers- Sheikh Rasheed and Fawad have been calling for ‘violence’ in the Kashmir Valley in the last month. Several hate speeches have come out from the country minister since the Modi government abolished Article 370 on August 5.
