A Pakistani media report on Sunday claimed that Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar is “alive”, quoting unnamed sources close to his family.
Geo Urdu News reported that the media reports claiming that JeM leader is dead are false. The report came after speculation on social media that JeM chief has died. It was not an official confirmation.
He is India’s most wanted terrorist. Quoting unnamed sources close to the family of the JeM chief, the channel said Azhar is “alive”, without providing any further information about his health. Though the Pakistan government has not given any official statement over this.
Federal Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry told the sources when being asked by the reporters about the death of Azhar, “I don’t know anything at this moment.”
In 2000, Azhar formed the Jaish-e-Mohammad who was a resident of Bahawalpur in Punjab province of Pakistan. The 50-year-old Azhar has been accused of several attacks in India. In 2001 he was allegedly responsible for the Parliament attack. Before this, in 1999, he got captured by India but his team hijacked Indian Airlines plane IC-814 demanding his release. The NDA government was compelled to release him. The recent suicide attack of Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir was also planned by Azhar which killed 40 CRPF personnel.
After the Pulwama terror attack, the IAF targeted the terror training camp of Jaish-e-Mohammed in Balakot and destroyed it. The Indian government has claimed an amazing success by destroying the camp.
Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi earlier admitted that the JeM chief is in his country and is “very unwell”. At the same time stated that the Pakistan government will take a step against him only if India presents “solid” and “inalienable” evidence against him.
Eventually, the US, UK, and France have demanded a fresh proposal in the UN Security Council to designate Azhar as a global terrorist. The Security Council Sanctions Committee will have 10 working days to consider the fresh proposal submitted by the three permanent members.
