Pakistan rejects Indian media’s report of banned outfit collecting flood funds


Pakistan on Friday categorically rejected the contents of a story carried by an Indian news outlet alleging flood relief work by a banned organisation in the country.

The Times of India had claimed that banned Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) was collecting funds across the flood-hit country in its report.

“It only betrays India’s bias and prejudice towards Pakistan, and is part of India’s regular and continuing attempts to mislead the international audience," the Foreign Office spokesperson said in a statement in response to media queries on the story.

He said that it is not the first time that the Indian media had shown their proclivity to carry baseless and motivated stories to further a political agenda.

“It is also unfortunate that while the international community is single-mindedly focused on helping Pakistan in the wake of an unprecedented natural calamity, some elements in the Indian media are attempting to cast doubts on the relief efforts.”

Pakistan had put in place strong and robust regulatory and oversight mechanisms to monitor flood relief activity by non-profit and non-governmental organisations, he said, adding all relevant agencies were vigilant in ensuring that no illicit activity was carried out under the garb of relief efforts.
