Masood Azhar’s designation as global terrorist draws contradictory reactions from the usual suspects

People who earlier criticised Modi govt for failing to get Azhar listed by UNSC, downplayed when he was eventually blacklisted today

The Indian Ambassador to the United Nations, Syed Akbaruddin had today announced today that the dreaded terrorist and the founder of the Jaish-e-Muhammad terror outfit, Masood Azhar has been officially designated as a global terrorist on the United Nations Sanctions List.

Masood Azhar’s listing in the United Nation’s list of the global terrorists is considered a remarkable feat as India had been trying for over a decade to conscript Azhar in the UN terror list. Being an all-weather ally of Pakistan, China had consistently stalled India’s move to designate Azhar as a global terrorist by using its ‘veto’ in the UNSC and citing a trivial ‘technical snag’ to indefinitely delay his listing.

With Azhar finally being listed on the UN Sanctions List, many have hailed PM Modi’s adept foreign diplomacy and the BJP government’s relentless efforts in getting the JeM chief banned. However, this hasn’t gone down well with the usual suspects who are left red-faced after the momentous diplomatic victory scored by PM Modi. ‘Neutral’ journalists and assorted public celebrities who were until yesterday calling it Modi’s failure in getting Azhar listed are suddenly disparaging the Indian government’s achievement.

Some of them who had earlier said that India had ‘reduced’ interest in raising Masood Azhar issue with China were quick to admonish journalists celebrating the UN listing saying that his listing won’t bring him back to Indian Jails and there’s nothing to celebrate.

Another journalist, Harinder Baweja held BJP responsible for bringing suicide bombing to India after escorting Azhar to freedom. With India tightening its noose around Azhar with his global listing, Baweja tried to downplay Indian government’s feat by asserting that ‘True Victory’ will mean when Pakistan acts stringent action against Masood Azhar.

Self-proclaimed Professor and an avowed Congress supporter, Ashok Swain earlier censured the government for displaying ‘hubris’ and moving the proposal without taking in confidence Russia and China. However, after India got Azhar finally blacklisted, Swain seemed to belittle this achievement by crediting ‘Easter Attacks’ in Sri Lanka responsible for China to change its stance on Azhar’s listing. However, only Ashok Swain can explain how Azhar is related to the attacks in Sri Lanka.

Madhya Pradesh chief minister Kamal Nath went a step ahead and suggested that there is a motive behind blacklisting Azhar during the elections in India. He noted that the decision came during the elections, but he does not know if this has something to do with the elections, indirectly implying that the UNSC sanctions committee may have taken the decision to benefit BJP.

It is but natural to see the usual suspects getting apprehensive about India’s diplomatic win to secure Azhar’s listing on the UN Sanctions List. They, perhaps, fear that this development will immensely benefit PM Modi in the remaining 3 phases of the elections left and shore up his Nationalistic credentials. This explains why they are downplaying India’s achievement and contending that such a move wouldn’t be beneficial to India.
