Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Vikas Swarup, at a press conference, said that it is expected to proscribe Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) leader Masood Azhar as a terrorist, adding that it would send a “dangerous message” if the United Nations fail to do so.

When asked about India’s surgical strikes in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK), Vikas Swarup said, “Whatever the Govt puts in public is determined by national security. We can’t comment anything else on it.”

Commenting on Pakistan’s denial on the same, Swarup added, “Truth comes out no matter how hard one tries to conceal it.”

Ever since the killing of Burhan Wani, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has remained at odds with India. Following Wani’s death, Sharif hailed Wani and called him a “son of the Kashmiri soil”.

To this, Swarup said, “Pakistan has once again self implicated itself.”

“14 countries were on one side and 1 country on the other, so that lead to this extension,” Swarup further added when asked about China extending hold on move to ban Masood Azhar.

“It is expected to proscribe Masood Azhar under the 1267 sanctions regime, on the basis of our submission, which will send a strong signal to all terror groups that international community will not pursue or tolerate selective approach to terrorism,” he added.
