The United States, France and the United Kingdom have proposed to the UN Security Council to blacklist Masood Azhar, the head of Jaish-e-Mohammad that had unleashed a dastardly terror attack in Pulwama on February 14.
If the proposal goes through without China blocking it, Masood Azhar will be disgnated as a global terrorist and face these five restrictions:
- All UN member nations would freeze funds, financial assets and resources belonging to him and his terror outfit Jaish.
- No one in these countries would be allowed to financially help him or his group.
- These nations would not allow him enter their countries, or allow transit through their territories.
- Member countries would need to prevent direct or indirect supply of any kind of weaponry or technical services to him or his group.
Incidentally, Pakistan, which has provided him a safe haven to establish and operate his terror networks, is also a UN member country.
