  • Pakistan PM Imran Khan faced yet another global defeat when FATF put Pakistan in an "enhanced blacklist" on Friday
  • This is led to an eruption of memes online. Most of them ridicule Khan's absolute lack of governance

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has recently been a global spectacle. First, he asked US President Donald Trump to intervene in the bilateral issue of Jammu Kashmir. Then, once the Indian Parliament abrogated article 370, he started spreading fake news over Kashmir. The US then cut their funding to Pakistan by $400 million. The UNSC meeting on the Kashmir issue favoured India with the International body calling 'Kashmir issue' as bilateral. Now, on Friday, Imran Khan faced yet another global defeat when financial watchdog Financial Action Task Force's (FATF) Asia-Pacific division put Pakistan in an "enhanced blacklist".

This is led to an eruption of memes online. Most of them ridicule Khan's absolute lack of governance. Many pointed out to Khan to stop his Kashmir obsession now. While some pointed out to Pakistan's degradation from greylisting to blacklisted. Meanwhile, Pakistanis ask what is FATF?

Pakistan in 'enhanced blacklist'

Earlier in the day, the Asia-Pacific Group of the global financial watchdog Financial Action Task Force (FATF) on Friday has put Pakistan in the "enhanced blacklist" for its inaction against terror funding perpetrating on its soil. This development came a day after Pakistan submitted its compliance report on its 27-point action plan to the Financial Action Task Force (FATF). Pakistan hoped for a possible exit from the grey list. However, APG (Asia/Pacific Group on Money Laundering) placed Pakistan in the Enhanced Expedited Follow Up List (Black List) for failure to meet its standards. FATF had found Pakistan non-compliant on 32 of 40 compliance parameters on money laundering and terror financing.
