ISLAMABAD – The Interior Minister, Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan said than Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) would not be allowed to work against the national interest of Pakistan.
He said that some NGOs were performing beyond the legal boundary and they should be probed. “We formulated a plan last year to regulate the functioning of NGOs in the country.” he added.

The interior minister also appealed to all international NGOs and governments to respect the domestic laws of Pakistan. He also said that they would not bear any kind of foreign pressure regarding the working criteria of the NGOs in Pakistan.
Addressing to media in the federal capital, Nisar said that many NGOs were doing a good job and all of them could not be clubbed in the same category.
