Exit from FATF Grey List Does Not Equate with Economic Revolution. It Only Means the US Grip on Pakistan Has Increased.
On 21 October 2022, FATF officially announced the removal of Pakistan from the grey list. The rulers of Pakistan are celebrating, as if they have undertaken some great Shariah obligation. The country’s political and military leadership, including the opposition, have all implemented FATF’s 34 action points, as if they were orders from Allah (swt). In fact, these action points clearly represent betrayal of Allah (swt), His Messenger (saw), and the believers. They break the back of Jihad-e-Kashmir and strangle all kinds of financial support for it.
These US agents presented the FATF demands as if they were the only roadblock to economic revolution in Pakistan. They are presenting exit from the grey list, as if we were on the brink of an economic revolution, before June 2018, when Pakistan was not on FATF’s grey list. Be it the GSP Plus status from the European Union or the IMF package, they always say that Pakistan will develop economically. However, neither the 22 IMF programs, nor exit from the FATF grey list, nor the CPEC project, nor Chinese colonialist loans, were ever game changers.
Instead, our economic situation has constantly worsened. When there was a Congress government in India, the Jihad in Kashmir was in the strategic interest of America, to rein in India. So Washington kept its eyes closed over all kinds of Pakistani support for this Jihad. However, when the pro-American BJP government came to power in India, the United States declare Jihad in Kashmir as ‘terrorism.’ It demanded that the political and military leadership of Pakistan ban the Kashmiri Jihadi organizations and end all support. So Musharraf banned Kashmiri Jihadi organizations. By implementing FATF provisions, any financial support for Jihad in Kashmir has been made impossible. Also, the implementation of FATF has gradually damaged our economy. It has made day-to-day financial transactions extremely difficult for the common man.
Under the cover of stopping ‘illicit financing,’ FATF monitors financial flow in designated countries. It ensures that funds are not used against Western interests. It is only a matter of time before FATF traps Pakistan, in its program to counter the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. It can then demand that Pakistan opens up its secret bank accounts, for sustaining and securing the hard-earned nuclear weapons program.
Western powers, and their financial institutions, themselves are a major source of illicit financial activities. They have stashed our wealth abroad, after it was looted by direct colonialism and the agent rulers. So the Western criminal minds force developing countries to adhere to standards, that they themselves ignore. Moreover, our enemies continue to illegally fund terror projects against us.
O Muslims of Pakistan and their Armed Forces! By fulfilling the demands of the colonialist institutions, such as IMF and the FATF, under the global order established by America, the economic, financial, foreign and domestic sovereignty of Pakistan is being eliminated. Following these instructions, a country of 220 million, which has the world’s sixth largest army and nuclear weapons, now practically carries the weight of Nepal or Bhutan. Our political and military leadership is enslaved to the US, even though Allah (swt) has warned us of the consequences of following the orders of the kuffar. Allah (swt) said,
(يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوَاْ إِن تُطِيعُواْ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ يَرُدُّوكُمْ عَلَى أَعْقَابِكُمْ فَتَنقَلِبُواْ خَاسِرِينَ)
“Believers! If you follow those who deny the Truth, they will drive you back on your heels, and you will turn about, losers.” [TMQ Surah Aali-Imran, 3:149]. So the time has come to get end the humiliation. Establish the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of the Prophethood. It alone will reject the American world order and its instruments, the colonialist institutions, whilst mobilizing the armed forces for Jihad-i-Kashmir and the Conquest of India.
