Reports indicate that Pakistan's Interior Ministry has shared names of 72 terrorist groups with its citizens and has asked them not to cooperate with these outfits; otherwise, they will be punished.
Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan, Daesh, Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammed, Jama'at-ud-Da'wah and many other groups are included in the list, the reports indicate.
Jama'at-ud-Da'wah is accused of carrying out the deadly attack on 2014 in India’s Mumbai city and the United States has specified one million USD praise for finding Hafiz Mohammad Saeed, the leader of the group.
Afghan Defense Ministry spokesman says the move by Pakistan’s Interior Ministry shows that I"slamabad supports terrorists".
“Pakistan supports terrorist groups," the Defense Ministry spokesman Dawlat Waziri told TOLOnews.
"Trust me, the war in Afghanistan will drop by 50 percent if Pakistan changes its policy," Waziri added.
The list was announced after the US decided to suspend its security aid to Pakistan.
US officials have said Pakistan is not honest in fighting terrorists.
Meanwhile, some members of Afghanistan's Meshrano Jirga, Upper House of Parliament, said the international community, especially the United States should put more pressure on Pakistan.
“Pakistan supports terrorist groups, particularly the Haqqani network and the Taliban,” Senator Anarkali Hunaryar told TOLOnews.
“We should not waste this golden chance. We should raise our voice to the international community,” Nader Baluch, a senator, said.
