China has once again blocked the move of UNSC to designate Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist. This attitude of China has disappointed a leading American lawmaker.
On February 27, the proposal was moved by France, the UK, and the US under the 1267 al-Qaeda Sanctions Committee of the Security Council. The decision was taken after the terror attack of Pulwama attack in Jammu and Kashmir. The suicide attack was planned and carried out by the Pakistan based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed.
The terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad is also responsible for several attacks in India. On December 13, 2001, it was responsible for the attack on Parliament killing nine security personnel and officers. It was also responsible for Pathankot airbase attack as well as Uri brigade headquarters attack.
On Thursday, Congressman Eliot Engel, the chairman of the powerful House Foreign Affairs Committee quoted, “I am disappointed that China has decided yet again to block Masood Azhar’s global terrorist designation at the UN Security Council.”
“China & Pakistan have had ample opportunity to fulfill their international obligations,” Mr. Engel added. Not only the US but India is also disappointed by the decision of China.
Indian-American attorney Ravi Batra said that “Preventing UNSC to designate a self-professed proud terrorist chief Masood Azhar, as a ”global terrorist”, when (Pakistan) Prime Minister Imran Khan honorably returned Indian pilot Abhinandan Varthaman, is beyond shameful. It is elevating the evil of state-sponsored terrorism to now becoming worthy of a Patron Saint’s protection.”
“If P5 (permanent five) members become protectors of terror, it is only time before a new Thomas Jefferson will declare independence and create a new world body that renders UNSC useless at best, or hold a P5 member vicariously liable for the evil they nurtured and protected,” he added.
Other than China, all other UNSC members had supported the proposal to list Azhar as a global terrorist.
