Tuesday, on the eve of United Nations Security Council, it was proposed that Masood Azhar, the Cheif of JeM should be declared as a global terrorist.
50-yeras-old Azhar have been involved in various Terrorist attacks including the Parliament attack, and also the recent Pulwama terror attack on 14th February 2019 in which 40 CRPF personnels died.
The three permanent members of UNSC – The US, Britain and France passed a resolution that Azhar meets the criteria of being a Global terrorist and now it’s high time that he should be declared as one.
There have been previous attempts in this regard but no result came out of it.
This time, the three members of UNSC are strict on their resolution and they want Masood Azhar to be declared as a Global Terrorist.
The biggest problem which they are facing right now is from China, one of the five veto members of UNSC. During the previous attempts to declare Masood Azhar as a Global Terrorist, China asserted against it. This is because China is an all-weather ally of Pakistan and it defends Pakistan in every concern. China said that there are not enough evidences to declare Azhar as the Global Terrorist.
After the Pulwama terror attack, there has been increasing tension between India and Pakistan and seeing that the US, France and Britain hope that Beijing would not cause any inconvenience in their move to certain that Masood Azhar is declared as a Global Terrorist.
Trump Administration made it very clear in the meeting of UNSC on Tuesday that there is ample evidence against Azhar and there should be no delay in this matter.
“Azhar is the founder and the leader of the JeM, and he meets the criteria for designation by the United Nations.” Robert Pallindo, the state department deputy spokesperson told in the news conference.
“The United States and China share a mutual interest in achieving regional stability and peace, and that a failure to designate Azhar would run counter to this goal,” Pallindo said in response to a question.
The fact that Masood Azhar is a threat Global peace and regional stability should be taken into account and he should be declared as the Global Terrorist.
