New York, A few days ago, China blocked the United Nations proposal to blacklist Mumbai 26/11 attack suspect and Pakistan Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist Sajid Mir. After this move by China, India has again demanded an impartial action in banning terrorists in the UN.
Sajid Mir is one of India’s most wanted terrorists and the mastermind behind the 2008 Mumbai attacks. China suspended its listing in the United Nations Security Council. It was the third such move by Beijing within four months.
Last month, China blocked the US and India’s proposal to blacklist Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar’s brother Abdul Rauf Azhar. In June, China refused to approve another proposal to list Pakistan-based terrorist Abdul Rehman Makki.
External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar pointed to these developments in the UNSC and said that such terrorists should not be given any kind of political protection. He pointedly pointed at China’s actions and said that the delay in banning such notorious terrorists in the UNSC may pose a threat to the peace of many countries in the world in the future.
In June, Beijing also blocked China’s proposal to include Abdul Rehman Makki, a relative of Lashkar-e-Taiba chief and 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed and designated terrorist by the United States, on the United Nations terrorist list.
Another Chinese terrorist, Sajid Mir, was in charge of the terror campaign outside the army from 2006 to 2011. A proposal to include him in the United Nations blacklist, which the US blamed for the 2008 Mumbai attacks in April 2011, was rejected at the last minute.HS1MS
