Five years after Islamic charities with ties to militant groups aided victims of a deadly earthquake in Pakistan, earning good will, reports suggest that the same scenario may be unfolding again in the wake of worst flooding in the history.

On Monday, Reuters reports that several Islamic charities are rushing to fill a vacuum created by a slow response from the government to devastating floods that have killed an estimated 1,400 people and over 3 million displaced.
