Islamabad: The global financial watchdog, Financial Action Task Force (FATF), must take measures to combat money-laundering and terror-financing to the Hindu terror outfits as the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has been receiving funding from the Indian Diaspora based in dozens of countries across the globe.
A report released by Kashmir Media Service, today, said human rights organizations urged the United Nations, the FATF and other financial institutions to take cognizance of the situation and follow it up with immediate action to block these illegal transactions as RSS has been using these funds to kill and torture religious minorities in mainland India as well Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
It said the RSS terrorists have carried out terrorist attacks across India killing Muslims, including in 2006 Malegaon blasts, Mecca Masjid bombing in Hyderabad, Samjhauta Express bombings and the Ajmer Sharif Dargah blasts. The RSS gave birth to India’s ruling party, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), it added.
“The RSS is receiving funding from Indian Diaspora based in various countries and Indian Consulates are facilitating the transfer of funding to the terrorist organization that is killing and lynching Muslims in India and Kashmir and carrying a Hindu supremacist ideology,” it said adding HR organizations are also expressing shock over the silence of FATF over illegal and illicit transactions to the RSS.
The report said the Kashmir dispute is a very complex issue and Pakistan has to focus on narrative-building to put facts before the world. In August 2019, it said, India imposed a military siege in Jammu and Kashmir, a move widely decried by human rights groups as well as the global Islamic community, it deplored.
It said the Jammu and Kashmir is held by India and Pakistan in parts and claimed by both in full. A small sliver of Kashmir is also held by China, it said and added that since they were partitioned in 1947, the two countries, Pakistan and India, have fought three wars in 1948, 1965 and 1971 including two over Kashmir.
It said some Kashmiri groups in Jammu and Kashmir have been fighting against Indian rule for unification with neighboring Pakistan. According to several human rights groups, thousands of people have been killed in the conflict in the region since 1989, it said.
