Khan said at a press conference in Islamabad on Aug. 23, 2015, that “If the registration authority of any country is not corruption free, there are serious security concerns.” Foreign Islamic militants have been able to secure Pakistani national identity cards in exchange for bribes as low as $100, giving them vastly greater freedom to operate, according to a report by Pakistan’s top intelligence agency obtained by The Associated Press. The main fault in the ID scandal seems to lies with corruption in Pakistan’s National Data Registration Authority, or NADRA, the organization that issues national ID cards. (AP Photo/B.K.
