The camp, the sources said, is intended to eventually replace the Lashkar’s existing headquarters at Muridke, near Lahore, which was seized by the Punjab government in 2009.
Financial crimes experts representing the multinational Financial Action Task Force, or FATF, which has threatened to blacklist Pakistan unless it acts against terror financing, are currently in the country to assess its claims to be acting against jihadist groups.
Even though Prime Minister Imran Khan’s government, mired in a foreign debt crisis, hopes to ward off FATF action, it has a close association with the Lashkar and its jihadist allies.
