New York, Mar. 29 (ANI): India, who is passionately following its quest for permanent membership of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), has hardened its stand on the Jaish-e-Mohammed and will call on the UN to proscribe its commander Maulana Masood Azhar.
With the developments on the Pathankot attack taking a concrete step as the Pakistan JIT team is set to visit to the site of the attack today, India is stepping up its crackdown on the terror outfit, whose involvement in the attack on the Air Base is the focus of the probe.
“As regards the attack by JeM, we assure you that we will pursue the cause for justice. It is not a cause that we will leave or have forgotten about. I can assure you that we are proceeding with our efforts to ensure that this organisation which is already proscribed by the UN also has its leaders proscribed and that is the primary effort right now,” India’s Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador Syed Akbaruddin told ANI here.
Asserting that India’s efforts are focused on having Masood as a listed entity, he added that there are certain terrorists that needed to be named and shamed.
“India is a remerging entity and a power that is trying to get its rightful place in the world. Nothing and no power on earth can stop an idea whose time has come. Our time has come,” Akbaruddin said.
Earlier, India showed Pakistan the evidence that establishes the involvement of Maulana Masood Azhar and his brother Muhammed Rauf Asghar in the Pathankot attack.
India has also sought voice samples of Rauf Asghar, who is reported to have claimed responsibility for the attack on a website.
Meanwhile, the chopper carrying the Pakistan probe team and the NIA landed at the Amritsar’s commercial airport.
The NIA yesterday gave a detailed presentation to the visiting Pakistani probe team on the evidence collected with regard to Pathankot airbase terror attack case.
Well placed NIA sources told ANI that the JIT held talks with the NIA members on the Pathankot attack investigation and NIA also gave presentation on facts and evidences.
As far as Jaish-e-Mohammed’s (JeM) involvement in Pathankot attack was concerned, the Pakistani JIT did not deny the evidence furnished by the NIA, sources said. (ANI)
