Worst banking by Askari Bank

Muhammad Arif, Ex Director of State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) and Chairman Centre of Advisory for Islamic Banking has shared his worst experience of banking in Pakistan especially with Askari Bank, we have already various complaints against worst banking being provided by Askari Bank which will be sharing soon with our readers in exclusive articles.
Arif in his complain which is widely circulating on social media said: “Pakistani banks including State Bank have gone highly worst. Recent example is of myself who remained part of SBP for 40 years and on retirement was Director of one of its department. My daughter Dr Samreen recently sent me few pounds from her account in Barclay Bank London into my foreign currency account maintained with Askari Bank Malir Cantt in pounds. The amount has not yet come into my account. According to my information two banks in Pakistan are involved i.e. Askari Bank and Standard Chartered Bank with its nostro. To delay the transaction they are asking irrelevant questions like where I was born and what is my date of birth whereas each and every information is available with the bank in my opened account and further being a tax filer. Actually these banks are part of the mafia along with money changers FX smugglers along with SBP. They all want that FX should not move into any valid FC account maintained in Pakistan. Along with other reasons they are also responsible for PKR depreciation. It looks strange that NAB is working against few notable politicians and taking no action against these filthy elements in the banking industry.”
