The whole world condemned the attack on the February 14 attack in Pulwama of Jammu and Kashmir. After this attack, once again, India reiterated its demand for declaring Jaish-e-Mohammed (JEM) guru Masood Azhar as an international terrorist.
The United States, Britain and France have supported India. Now these countries have asked the United Nations Security Council to ban JeM’s head Azhar in a new resolution. Since then, the ban on his global travel will be banned, the property will be seized, and arms embargo.
A possibility, however, can not be overlooked that China can stoop in the way of restricting Azhar. Earlier, China had stopped the Islamic State and Al-Qaeda Ban Committee from UNSC on banning JeM’s head Azhar in 2016 and 2017. However, there is no statement from China on this issue this time.
On Wednesday, the proposal was presented to three permanent members of the 15 National Security Council who have the veto power. The UN Security Council Sanctions Committee will have 10 working days to consider the fresh proposal submitted by the three members. In the last 10 years Azhar has been brought for the fourth time in order to declare an international terrorist.
In 2009 India gave a proposal against Azhar. Whose terrorist organization took responsibility for the Pulwama attack on February 14. 40 CRPF personnel were martyred in this suicide attack. Once again in 2016, India, the United States, Britain and France came with a proposal to ban Azhar in front of the United Nations Ban Committee, which was the mastermind of Pathankot attack in January 2016.

In the year 2017, the United States, Britain and France came together with a similar offer. However, on every occasion, the permanent member of the United Nations, China, has used veto on it and stalled India’s efforts. This time too, China will be the viewer. It is no secret that China is close to Pakistan.
