Karachi: Pakistani Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has reportedly asked Secretary Interior Shahid Khan to coordinate with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and prepare a "national list" of "proscribed organizations" as per the blacklist of the United Nations (UN).
The directive was given on Tuesday during a meeting to discuss the National Action Plan (NAP) for countering militancy and extremism, reported the Dawn.
It was attended by Secretary Interior, National Coordinator Nacta, DG-FIA, Chief Commissioner ICT and IG Islamabad.
An official of the Interior Ministry said that the Haqqani Network and Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) had already been added to the list of proscribed outfits but the government was reluctant to announce it formally.
The official added that the government had decided to monitor the activities of the "banned outfits` leadership and to restrict their movement within the country."
The Minister had also instructed the Interior Ministry and National Counter Terrorism Authority (Nacta) to "fine-tune" the procedure of blacklisting organizations so that they do not remerge with new names, the official said.
