New Delhi, May 15: Pakistan says that it has been acting against the Jaish-e-Mohammad in the aftermath of the listing of its chief, Maulana Masood Azhar by the United Nations.
With these developments the activities of the Jaish-e-Mohammad are likely to come down in India, especially in Jammu and Kashmir. However Pakistan has plan B and that would be to prop up the Lashkar-e-Tayiba to fill in the vacuum.
New Delhi, May 10: Maulana Masood Azhar continues to remain at the helm of affairs of the Jaish-e-Mohammad despite the UN imposing a ban and declaring him a terrorist.
As expected the Jaish-e-Mohammad would now operate under a new name, intelligence agencies have learnt. It was expected that Pakistan would change the name of the outfit to overcome the ban and we witnessed this in the case of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba as well.
New Delhi, May 02: In the wake of the UN ban on Jaish-e-Mohammad chief, Maulana Masood Azhar, Pakistan would now find ways to safeguard him and his outfit.
One could expect some eye-wash from Pakistan to show that it seems to be acting against Azhar and the JeM. Anticipating such a decision and a strike by India in the aftermath of the Pulwama attack, Pakistan’s ISI has shifted Azhar’s base over four times, Indian intelligence agencies tell OneIndia.
New Delhi, May 02: It was a major victory for India after the United Nations listed Jaish-e-Mohammad chief, Maulana Masood Azhar and declared him a terrorist.
For India it was a long battle to get China lift the hold on the ban. Apart from diplomatic moves, India also produced a dossier on Azhar, which was one of the major reasons, why the ban was imposed.
New Delhi, May 02: It began in 2009 and the closure came in 2019. India had first moved a proposal to designate Maulana Masood Azhar as a terrorist before the United Nations in 2009. The move was blocked by China.
The next time India made such a move was in the year 2016. A year later the P3 nations made a similar proposal, but the Chinese block continued.
New Delhi, May 02: It was a major diplomatic win for India after Jaish-e-Mohammad chief, Maulana Masood Azhar was designated by the United Nations. The decision came through after China lifted its hold on the ban.
India was keen that Azhar be designated by the Security Council Sanctions Committee. The committee of the UN was established in 1999 under Resolution 1267.
New Delhi, Mar 28: China’s mass detention of the Uighur Muslims was termed as unfortunate by US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo. The statement comes in the wake of human rights activists accusing China of putting millions of Uighurs in detention camps.
China cites them as a terror threat and justifies the action, but continues to remain silent on groups such as the Lashkar-e-Tayiba or Jaish-e-Mohammad, which have proven track records of terrorism in India.
New Delhi, Mar 18: Terror mastermind Masood Azhar had undertaken a month-long sojourn to England to collect funds for militants operating in Jammu and Kashmir and received Rs 15 lakh (Pakistani currency), though he got a “very poor” response while travelling to Sharjah and Saudi Arabia before arriving in India in 1994.
Azhar, the founder of Jaish-e-Mohammad, responsible for a series of terror strikes in India including the attack on Parliament in 2001 and a CRPF convoy in Pulwama last month, had procured a Pakistani passport in his real name and original address in 1986 and had extensively toured African and Gulf countries where he realised that the Arab nations were not sympathetic to the “Kashmir cause”.
New Delhi, Mar 14: India has said that the Pulwama attack was planned by Jaish-e-Mohammad chief, Maulana Masood Azhar and his brother Rauf Asghar.
New Delhi, Mar 14: For the fourth time, China has stood in the way of Jaish-e-Mohammad chief, Masood Azhar being declared a global terrorist by the UN Security council.
Azhar is accused of several deadly terror attacks that include the ones at Parliament, Pathankot, Uri, Nagrota and Pulwama.
