A day after Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan in a televised address, bellowed that Pakistan had no connection with the dastardly Pulwama attack, Intelligence sources have told Zee Media that Pakistan Army has advised its two terrorist principals to maintain a low profile amidst rising pressure from the International community.
Pakistan’s military-intelligence establishment has once again interceded to safeguard the terrorists they have been fostering for ages by asking Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar and Lashkar-e-Taiba chief Hafiz Saeed to keep a low profile as long as the pressure of the International community continues over the Pulwama terror attack.
This protective advice from the Pakistan Army unmasks the pretence of Pakistan’s PM and his delegates who have been in a continuous denial mode, ranting the similar rhetorics of Pakistan not being behind the terror attack.
Meanwhile, in what can be seen as a pushover to India’s effort to formally get Jaish-e-Mohammad’s mastermind, Masoor Azhar, termed a ‘globally designated terrorist’ it has been reported now that France will again lead a proposal at the UN to put Masood Azhar on the terrorist list.
This is not the first time France has sought to ban Masood Azhar at the UN. In 2017, a similar proposal was brought at the UN by the USA, which was supported by France and the UK. The proposal was submitted with the Sanctions Committee 1267 of the UN. But the move was blocked by China.
Before that, India had also moved the US Sanctions Committee for banning Masood Azhar, but those attempts were blocked by China. Out of the 15 members of the security council, only China is blocking the move.
This move, which is now gaining momentum Internationally, is also being speculated as one of the prime reason for Pakistan Army wanting to keep its in-house terrorists in low visibility.
Pakistan backed terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad had claimed responsibility of the heinous Pulwama attack executed on February 14, wherein the organisation audaciously attacked a convoy of 70 vehicles of the CRPF carrying 2500 personnel which was on its way from Jammu to Srinagar. In what is being considered the most gruesome attack in the last 3 decades, over 40 CRPF personnel lost their lives as a suicide bomber, rammed an explosive-laden car into the CRPF bus, which was part of the convoy.
Pakistan has been condemned and shamed Internationally for this cowardly act.
