List JeM chief Masood Azhar as a designated terrorist

On 14 February 2019, a JeM(Jaish-E-Mohammed) suicide bomber rammed a vehicle carrying over 200 kg of explosives into a CRPF bus which was part of a convoy that was going to Srinagar from Jammu. The incident took place on Srinagar-Jammu national highway in Pulwama. 44 personnel of the Central Reserve Police Force were killed in that blast. This was one of the worst terror strikes in the state since the attack on the Uri military base camp on September 2016 in which 18 Army jawans had died and dozens were injured .

The JeM militant outfit claimed responsibility for the attack. Officials said that a Pulwama-based militant, Adil Ahmad was the main perpetrator.

China is a permanent member of the UNSC. It is the only nation at the United Nations which has openly supported terror group JeM and its chief Masood Azhar. It has repeatedly used veto power to foil India’s bid to list Azhar as a global terrorist.

When asked about China’s stand on the listing of Azhar as a global terrorist by the UN Security Council, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman, Geng Shuang said, “As for the issue of listing, I could tell you that the 1267 Committee of Security Council has a clear stipulation on the listing and procedure of the terrorist organisations. JeM has been included in the Security Council terrorism sanctions list. China will continue to handle the relevant sanctions issue in a constructive and responsible manner.”

There are several other clear instances of Pakistan's all-weather ally, China blocking the UN from listing JeM chief Masood Azhar as a designated terrorist, time and again. It is high time citizens create pressure for the same. This is why I have started this petition to the United Nations.
