June 12, 2015 – Save The Children Pakistan Offices Shut Down By Government, Employees Given 15 Days To Leave Country

The government of Pakistan has closed down the offices of international non-profit “Save the Children” and gave its foreign employees 15-day ultimatum to leave the country.

An official of the Interior Ministry said on condition of anonymity that the notice was on allegation of activities against the national interest.

“We have been monitoring various international and local NGOs and Save the Children was found working against the interests of Pakistan.

Kamran Cheema, a Senior Administrator Save the Children, said the main office in Islamabad was closed down late Thursday night and police were stationed outside.

A security source said the organisation drew attention in 2011, after the arrest of a doctor, Shakil Afridi.
He said Afridi was allegedly involved in a fake anti-polio campaign, on behalf of the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to confirm the presence of al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden in the north-western city of Abbottabad.

He said though the NGO has denied any link with Afridi or the CIA.

He said Afridi was arrested a year later and jailed for treason over links to another militant group.
He said government has been monitoring and tightening control over NGOs on its territory since the incident.

This is not a good news for millions of children suffering over there. It is pure politics.

    The role of many intl. NGO isn’t always as clear cut as they want to make us believe. After Russia has put it’s NGO law in place to keep a lid on the “undesirable” Elements of foreign NGO that often enough have many other programs not connected to their claim of Charity and mainly feeding the US Government with Information it could not otherwise obtain. Cambodia has just put it’s NGO Law in place to regulate a “out of control” NGO Sector, too.
