Brac still in operation in Pakistan
According to a report published by Daily Pakistan on Sunday, 21 INGOs including Brac, Plan International and ActionAid have lost their registration in Pakistan following new government regulations. However, Brac issued a statement denying receiving any such order from the government of Pakistan. In a press release dated December 10, Brac said such reports about Brac were not based on any facts. It goes on to say Brac Pakistan has been operational since 2007 and is registered locally. Recently, Brac undertook an initiative to register an international development entity, Brac International, in Pakistan. An application filed with the concerned ministry rejected the appeal and advised resubmitting papers within 90 days for appraisal. The statement emphasizes that the development programmes run by Brac Pakistan have no connection with the appeal for registration of Brac International or the process involving it. A report published by Daily Pakistan on December 9 claimed Brac and 20 other INGOs have lost their registration, with their re-application also being rejected by the Interior Ministry of Pakistan. The NGOs who lost their licences failed to fulfill recently updated criteria by the Pakistani government, the paper reported. The article goes on to say ActionAid expressed surprise over the government’s order. “We have been given 60 days to close down all operations,” Daily Pakistan reported ActionAid Pakistan Country Director Iftikhar A Nizami as saying in a statement on Thursday. A national mistrust of international NGOs has been building there since the 2011 Osama Bin Laden execution, following which it was revealed that the American intelligence agency CIA had used the activities of the NGO Save the Children as cover for their operations, the report read.
