#BoycottChineseProducts: Tweeple outrage after China shields Masood Azhar

16 March, 2019, 03:05 | Author: Ted Wilson
  • Masood Azhar who is in Pakistan is wanted in India for terror strikes including the suicide bombing in Kashmir

Azhar is the founder and leader of Jaish-e-Mohammed, an insurgent group in Pakistan administered Kashmir.

"China conducts thorough and in-depth assessment of these applications and we still need more time, so that is why we put forward the technical hold", he said.

The comment piece advised New Delhi to resort to quiet diplomacy instead of extensively directing aggressive rhetoric to pressurize Beijing, the Azhar issue could have been better addressed. They made the move on Feb 27, days after a JeM-claimed suicide bombing in India-held Kashmir killed 40 Indian troops. "Grateful to the many states - big & small - who in unprecedented numbers, joined as co-sponsors of the effort", Syed Akbaruddin, India's Permanent Representative to the United Nations, in a tweet said.

Azhar founded Jaish-e-Muhammed, or the Army of Mohammed, in 2000 in Pakistan and has used the group to funnel weapons, cash and other support to the Taliban and al-Qaida, according to the United States. "China is ready to communicate and coordinate with all sides including India to properly handle this issue", Chinese Foreign Ministry was quoted saying.

India on February 26 had sent a dossier to Pakistan with specific details pertaining to JeM's role in the dastardly Pulwama attacks.

He signed with Cleveland after he was released by the Ravens three years after the team took him with a first-round pick. Instead, they've done a very good job assembling some cheaper talent to put around Josh Allen.

India Wednesday expressed disappointment soon after China put a technical hold on designating Azhar. "China was isolated as it was the only UNSC member to oppose it", said Dr Srikanth Kondapalli, a professor in Chinese Studies at Jawaharlal Nehru University.

Reportedly, China in its note to Security Council said it needed more time to examine the sanctions request targeting Masood Azhar. China built China-Pak Economic Corridor (CPEC) through PoK/Balochistan worth $ 54 billion connecting Gwadar Port in Arabian Sea to China with base for Chinese submarines. JeM is a United Nations-designated terrorist group.

"China has all along participated in relevant discussions in a responsible manner and in strict accordance with the rules of procedure and provisions of the 1267 Committee", he said. "China wouldn't be in UNSC had your great grandfather not "gifted" it to them at India's cost", BJP reacted on Twitter. China's support to Pakistan to protect Masood Azhar and his Jaish is a provocation in itself, but considering the overall scenario, two possibilities exist: one, to grin and bear with this scenario.

"I have shared these facts with you so that leaders who describe this as our diplomatic failure may see for themselves that in 2009, India was alone".
