India is making a lot of efforts to ban Masood Azhar, chief of Jaish-e-Mohammed who is responsible for Pulwama terror attack . Today, in the Security Council meeting of the United Nations, it will be decided whether Masud Azhar should be declared as a Global Terrorist or not. In this campaign of India, America is also with the country, it has been said that Masood Azhar should be designated a Global Terrorist.
US said in a statement that the Jaish-e-Mohammed is a international terror organization and Masood Azhar is its Chief so he should be declared a Global Terrorist. Masood Azhar is a threat to peace in the Indian subcontinent.
"Azhar is the founder and the leader of the JeM, and he meets the criteria for designation by the United Nations," State Department Deputy Spokesperson Robert Palladino told reporters at his daily news conference.
"The United States and China share a mutual interest in achieving regional stability and peace, and that a failure to designate Azhar would run counter to this goal," Palladino said in response to a question on previous successful attempts by China to block the UN designation of Azhar.
Significantly, the proposal has already been brought to declare Masood Azhar as a global terrorist, but China so far has been asserting that there is not enough evidence against Azhar to designate him as a global terrorist.
In the Pulwama terror attack on February 14, 40 CRPF soldiers were martyred, since then India is an attacker on Pakistani-backed terrorists.
The JeM, headed by the 50-year-old Azhar, carried out many terror strikes in India and was involved in the attack on Parliament, the Pathankot air force base, army camps in Jammu and Uri.
