A National Action Plan committee meeting presided over by Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan decided to ban all websites related to terrorism or spreading terrorist propaganda along with taking steps to ensure the stoppage of money transfer in bank accounts operated by terrorists.
In a statement issued after the meeting, Finance Ministry, ordered the FIA and other intelligence agencies to monitor suspicious bank accounts. Banks and financial institutions are ordered to stop transfer of money in such accounts.
All websites promoting terrorism will be shut. Information technology ministry and Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (P.T.A) will jointly work for the cause.
