Pak should take action against JeM, Masood Azhar or hand him over to India

Pakistan should take stringent action against the banned terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) and its chief Masood Azhar after the dastardly terror attack in Pulwama or Pakistan should hand him to India for necessary prosecution.

The entire world condemns the attack on a CRPF convoy in which at least 44 CRPF personnel were killed. Appropriate action needs to be taken by India. It is a very sad incident, it is deplorable, it is something which should lead us to take action so that this should not happen again. Pakistan must take action against JeM and Masood Azhar, the onus is on Pakistan now. Else India should follow foreign policy to corner Pakistan and bring JeM and Masood Azhar to book.

as the terrorists have now changed the tactics of attack and radicalisation levels in Jammu and Kashmir have gone up and It shows the change in tactics of terrorists. An IED has been used after a long time, IEDs were used in the past. In 2001-2002 this was a normal practice of terrorists, and then they resorted to firing from distance. Indian armed forces also need to counter their dastardly designs in the interest of the nation.

But this thing where a local boy who has been radicalised, he has undertaken a ‘fidayeen’ action on a moving convoy, shows the emboldened instance of local terrorists, also the fact that radicalisation levels have gone up.

44 CRPF personnel were killed while others sustained injuries after a suicide bomber rammed a car laden with explosives into a bus carrying CRPF personnel.

The bus carrying more than 44 CRPF personnel was extensively damaged in the blast, which was followed by firing on the vehicle. Soon after, Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), which is based in Pakistan and backed by the Pakistani administration, claimed responsibility for the attack and said it was carried out by its suicide bomber.

After the dastardly act, India rightly demanded that the UN ban JeM and its chief Masood Azhar who roams freely in Pakistan. It is an acid test for all UN member countries to support India’s proposal for proscribing Azhar as an international terrorist or resolve to hand over Masood Azhar to India to bring his criminal liabilities to book.
