The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has designated Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist.
Defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman also gave credit to PM Modi’s leadership for UN’s decision against Masood Azhar.
BJP MP MJ Akbar also took to Twitter to praise PM Modi and said, “Finally terrorists who wound India are getting terrified. Our country has PM Modi who seeks them in their sanctuaries. As he said, the international victory in hunt for terrorist Masood Azhar is only the beginning. The era of Congress weakness and vacillation is over.”
Many other BJP leaders like Ram Madhav also gave credit to PM Modi’s leadership for UN’s decision against Masood Azhar. While AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi said that Masood Azhar being declared a global terrorist was a meaningless designation since Pulwama reference was not in the application.
Former Jammu and Kashmir CM Omar Abdullah slammed the decision on Twitter and said, “No mention of terror in Kashmir and no mention of Pulwama. It’s amazing how quickly the sacrifices of the CRPF men were sold down the river to get a symbolic win.”
Omar Abdullah called the UN decision against Masood Azhar a diplomatic victory for both India and Pakistan.
In a press release, Congress leader Randeep Surjewala too hit out at PM Modi and said that they expected the Modi government to act at a greater speed against Masood Azhar.
