New Delhi, Mar 09: Safeguarding Maulana Masood Azhar, the chief of the Jaish-e-Mohammad has been a key factor in Pakistan. Considered to be one of Pakistan’s most useful proxies against India, Azhar have over the past two years been moved to several safe houses.
The latest intel on him suggests that he has been moved out of the JeM headquarters at Bahawalpur. The intel on him also says that he has been moved to Rawalpindi as there is information that he could be hit. Moving him to Rawalpindi clearly suggests that he is being hidden under heavy protection by the ISI.
New Delhi, Sep 09: Indian Intelligence officials have said that Pakistan may have secretly released Jaish-e-Mohammad chief, Maulana Masood Azhar from protective custody.
This move comes after the United Nations had in May 2019 designated Azhar as a terrorist. The move came after China lifted its technical hold on the proposal by the US, UK and France.
The security forces in Kashmir recently killed the nephew of Jaish-e-Mohammad chief, Maulana Masood Azhar. The killing of Talha Rashid is not only significant because he is the nephew of the Jaish chief, but for a lot of other reasons.
China was at it again. It blocked declaring Maulana Masood Azhar as a terrorist in the United Nations once again. This is a set back for India which has handed out ample proof of his role in the Parliament, Pathankot attacks as well as the ruckus Azhar has been causing in Jammu and Kashmir.
China is all set to once again block a move to get Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Maulana Masood Azhar declared a global terrorist. The proposal by India which has the backing of the US, UK and France has been put on technical hold by China which as a permanent member of the UNSC wields a veto power.
Is the China-Pakistan bonhomie wearing off? The BRICS declaration condemned the role various terror groups, but the one that was the highlight was the Jaish-e-Mohammad. It may be recalled that China had refused to support the ban on the Jaish chief Maulana Masood Azhar.
The move by India to enforce a ban on Maulana Masood Azhar by the United Nations ran into the mighty Chinese wall again. China remained adamant and refused to back the ban as sought by India. Azhar is an accused in the Pathankot, Parliament, Uri and Nagrota attacks. Indian officials say that China is adamant, ill-advised and its decision to yet again block the ban mindless. This is not the first time that China has played truant when India has sought a ban on terrorists from Pakistan.
While the bid to block a ban on Azhar has been done several times, similar actions have been seen in the cases of Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin, Lashkar-e-Tayiba operatives Abdul Rehman Makki and Azam Cheema. China has also blocked questions on how the likes of Hafiz Saeed and Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, the Lashkar’s top bosses have been able to access funds in Pakistan despite a UN ban.
New Delhi, May 5: The operation that led to the arrest of Jaish-e-Mohammad operatives in Delhi was a well coordinated one by the Intelligence Bureau and the Delhi Police. For several months now the IB was on the trail of three persons, Sajid, Shaikh and Sameer who were planning on targeting crowded areas in the national capital.
It was the arrest of these three persons which led to the trail of ten others who were also picked up by the Special Cell of the Delhi police yesterday.
The police say that this module was meant to carry out attacks in India at the behest of the Jaish-e-Mohammad and would have assumed the role of a home grown outfit.
New Delhi, April 12: As expected, the Jaish-e-Mohammad has profusely thanked China for blocking a ban on him at the UN as had been sought by India. Al-Qalam, the mouth piece of the Jaish-e-Mohammad has praised China as a friend after Azhar’s ban had been blocked by China.
There are two articles in the magazine. While one is written by Naveed Masood Hasmi, titled ‘Moulana Masood Azhar se Darul Uloom Deoband Tak’, the other is penned by Azhar himself under the headline Mazboot.
Azhar’s article refers to the role of Nawaz Sharif in parking off-shore funds. The ruling family has been exposed in financial dealings, he writes while seeking out the strictest punishment.
