PESHAWAR The Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has practically launched a crackdown against the banned outfits collecting donations and carrying out relief activities in the flood-hit areas of the Province. After imposing a ban on the relief activities of the non-registered non-governmental organisations few days back, the KP Government started an operation against the banned religious organisations and so far 16 relief camps established by these organisations had been closed down. These relief camps were established in Peshawar, Nowshera, Charsadda, Swat, Dir, DI Khan, Shangla and other flood-affected districts. Sources informed TheNation that these banned outfits also include Jamaat-ud-Dawah and its relief camps had been closed down. Details with regard to closure of 16 relief camps in 22 flood-hit districts of the Province have been sent to the Ministry of Interior by the Provincial Government. Earlier, bowing down to the international pressure, the Government of Pakistan directed the concerned Provincial Governments for imposing a ban on all kinds of the relief activities being carried out by some banned organisations including JuD. The Provincial Government was ordered to form a taskforce for further action. The Provincial Government has formed the taskforces led by DIG Mardan, CCPO Peshawar, DIG DI Khan and DIG Malakand. These taskforces will keep an eye on the activities of the banned outfits in the flood-hit areas. A prompt action will be taken, if these outfits establish any camp.
