Other aid groups warned

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s interior minister on Friday said the government was ready to throw out more foreign aid groups, a day after Save the Children were expelled for “working against the country”.

Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said Parliament was debating whether to expose what he said were the “many” foreign non-governmental organisations bent on undermining Pakistan. “Non-Government Organisations working against the country’s national interest will not be allowed to continue their work in Pakistan,” said Khan.

Without naming any organisations, Khan said some NGOs had been operating without proper regulation and had worked in Baluchistan when they had permission only to work in Islamabad.
