Pakistan shuts down 11 INGOs mostly from US and UK
*ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has decided to go tough on the international NGOs working in Pakistan against the national interest and without government permission.*
The Islamabad police have been ordered to shut down operations of eleven international non-government organisations (INGOs) after the interior ministry denied them permission to function in the country,* reported <link>* a local English newspaper.
The senior superintendent of police, in a letter, has ordered all four zonal superintendents of police to shut down the operations of these INGOs.
The letter said that these organisations applied for the registration with the interior ministry which was rejected. The police officers were asked to close these down if they are still working in their areas and to submit a written report to the office of SSP.
Four of these INGOs are based in the UK, two are from the US, one each from China, Switzerland, Denmark, the Netherlands, and Pakistan.
