United Nations, November 8, 2016: India has strongly criticized the Security Council for holding the India’s bid to ban JeM chief Masood Azhar by the UN. The Council is taking a long time to sanction leaders of groups who have declared themselves as terror entities.

Masood Azhar is the leader and founder of Jaish-e-Mohammed, a terrorist group. The group is active in the Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK). Due to his history of terrorism activities, he is among the top 10 most wanted terrorists of India.

Syed Akbaruddin, India’s Permanent Representative to the UN ambassador has slammed the Council for its inability to deal with the terrorist groups of the world. He said that the council is busy in its own politics and time warp.

At a session, on the increase in the membership and the equitable representation, Akbaruddin said, “While our collective conscience is ravaged everyday by terrorists in some region or another, the Security Council gives itself 9 months to consider whether to sanction leaders of organizations it has itself designated as terrorist entities,” mentioned PTI.

After India bid at the UN to declare Azhar as a terrorist, China extended the technical hold on the bid. After six months, in September, the validity of the technical hold passed but China put another three month extension on the bid.

Akbaruddin criticized the slow and the never ending long discussions on the United Nations Security Council (UNSC). He said that the Council has become unresponsive to the current situations of the world. It’s time to reform the body and break the impasse.

The inability to respond to humanitarian situations, terrorist threats and peacekeeping vulnerabilities during this year itself are part of the price that is being paid for the international community’s lack of progress on the critical matter, he noted.

According to Akbaruddin, the council has lost its ability to deal with terrorist threats, humanitarian situations and peacekeeping vulnerabilities.

India, however, bucked the global trend of pessimism where 22 countries out of the total of the 28 markets covered in the survey felt their country is on the wrong track. Pixabay

Apart from these issues, a significant number of Indians are also concerned about crime and violence (33 per cent) and poverty and social inequality (29 per cent).

“Pulwama terror strike has propelled terrorism to the fore. It was way down in the pecking order in the past waves. Terrorism is bothering Indians most. Likewise, lack of jobs is weighing on the minds of Indians and government,” said Parijat Chakraborty, Service Line Leader, Ipsos Public Affairs, Customer Experience and Corporate Reputation.

“Similarly, more concrete steps are needed for tackling corruption. While strategies are being formulated by the government to address them, our survey shows that Indians are preoccupied with concerns around these macro issues and will like them to be mitigated,” Chakraborty added.
