Sushma Swaraj questions Imran Khan’s ‘statesmanship, asks him to hand over Jaish chief Masood Azhar to India: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Thursday express the government’s willingness to engage with Pakistan in a terror-free atmosphere. Addressing reporters in Delhi Sushma said Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan should hand over Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar to India if he is so generous and a statesman. The move comes hours after China shot down India’s proposal to designate Masood Azhar as a global terrorist in the wake of Pulwama terror attack which was claimed by the Jaish. India’s move to designate Masood Azhar as a global terrorist including other key members of the UNSC was blocked for the fourth time by China, which is Pakistan’s closest ally.

China said it hasn’t got enough evidence against Azhar to designate him as a global terrorist and needs more time to examine sanction request against him. India vowed that it will continue to pursue all available avenues to bring not only the Jaish chief but other ‘terrorist leaders’ to justice.

The proposal to designate Azhar under the 1267 al Qaeda Sanctions Committee of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) was moved by France, UK and the US on February 27 after the attack in Pulwama on February 14 that had killed more than 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel.

Reports said India has been using a document submitted to the UN in 2011 to make its case stronger against Azhar. The document describes links between Al Qaeda founder Osama Bin Laden and Azhar.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo criticised China’s attitude and said the country is in ‘league of its own’ on human rights violations.

  1. Sushmaji, you(india) are in violation of UNSC resolutions you agreed to in 1947 and 1948 on Kashmir.
    Keep your mouth shut.

  2. Murkh Amin the UN resolution calls for PAK army to be moved out of POK before a free and fair plebicite can be held by India. Ask your Mullah mamus in PAK to honour this resolution and India will hold a plebicite.

  3. Terroristan, formerly known as Pakistan, will not take action against terrorists. And China will support Terroristan till China is hit hard. The only viable solution for India is to liquidate terrorists inside Terroristan. If the Indian government is not already training for this, it should start immediately. Once a handful of these heads of terrorist groups are eliminated, Terroristan may come to its senses.
