Only Muslim countries are in grey list.

Too biased with religion, aren't you?

Non-Muslim countries in grey list include.... Zimbabwe, Cambodia, Barbados, Cayman Islands, Philippines . Non-Muslim country in Black list - North Korea.

So elsewhere in the world....not everyone judge other with a big lens of religion every time. This privileged is limited to Islamic countries...that is why they are the only one who differentiate themselves as "Islamic Republic of XXX".....ever heard of Christian republic of ..., or Hindu republic of...or Jew republic of...

Actually, enemies on the ground are defeated and full hands down. On the table, where most bias sits; the lackeys play their part and practical is not counted. This is what adversaries can do and yeah, India is mere bogeyman in this case while one can see who is most hurt and wants Pakistan to bow down. Not happening.


Exactly why someone's sugar daddy 8snhurt and influencing through a cheerleader.
Defeated but just.
Realizing gain is extremely critical. While State is dysfunctional or at least unbalanced, regional strategic gains can't be realized.
Just compare..
Pak nominal GDP at $262 billion, rank 45
BD, 392 billion, rank 41, ahead of pak
Israel 402 billion, very small country, rank 30
India, abt 2.7 Tr, rank 6

That shows how low we are because of dysfunctional governance, education, R&D. industrialization and productivity.

Whining won't work (WWW)....

It's a fundamental trait...if you control a system, you can change and bent rules to make it run per your wishes.....Don't the governments do the same with their countries.

So if FATF is controlled by bunch of countries who do not support your view...you have four options

1. Quit the system and switch to the one you feel more comfortable in.... (there is none unfortunately)
2. Create a parallel system of your own and get buy in from the world (those similar to you) to join........ (Currently you do not have that capability)
3. Do what they want you to do and enjoy the rewards.....(you will need to bring down your ego for that. I any case you do whatever being asked, when it comes to China)
4. Keep suffering.... (won't be a healthy option in longer run)

Up to you to Decide.
I will take path 2 and build out own capability.

They can do it because they hold all the cards. Such political decisions might push some countries and region to find a way out of this hegemony albeit very difficult but not impossible IMHO.

Dude the figures & numbers will continue like that and will remain crucial or harmful if we give up like Ottomans did in the end. Do you think such IMF program is a new game in itself? I don't think so. Keeping Pakistan on grey list is only going to make it more expensive to get IMF loan and return in triple value. This grey list will eventually affect the interest rate for the loan return and you can do calculation. Conclusively, it is a curse and we keep getting it unfortunately. Unless, the shackles are broken; we will keep hearing. Just look at what happened in this FATF meetup... Pakistan achieves 100% in T&Cs but they have to keep it in grey list.... a demand made by big 5s or 7s or 9s especially since they needed Afghanistan in their lap like that, CPEC to be abandoned, be the enemy of China and everyone that US hates, recognize Israel on top of all and viola.... you have not just reached the white list but all the white privileges too.

We are saying same things but differently.
The GDP Nnumbers I have quoted are an indicator and show how weak we are as a country and nation.
Nbers are results of our Bad governance, bad politics, broken system so everyone shall slap and play with us.
