Pakistan bans Bangladesh-based INGO Dhaka Ashiayana

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has banned a Bangladesh-based non-governmental organization (NGO) on the allegations of working against the country.

It is worth mentioning here that this is the second international NGO, which has been restrained from working in the country after ‘Save the Children’, which was banned last week.

“Authorities ordered the Bangladesh-based NGO to leave the country as it was working against the country on the instructions of Indian intelligence agency; Research and Analysis Wing (RAW),” a government official said.

The INGO, Dhaka Ashiayana, is the second victim of government’s tightening of the vice on INGO. According to the sources, there are solid evidence that Dhaka Ashiayana is backed by RAW and it has been working against the interests of Pakistan.


Though the government did not make any formal announcement, an official of the interior ministry said that the agency was involved in “anti-Pakistan activities”. While talking about this latest development, the interior ministry official said that they had been receiving intelligence reports for many years but no action was taken.
