Pakistan slams four Indians in UN for calling them militants, powerful countries side with India

Bangla Hunt Desk: In the United Nations Security Council, Pakistan once again lost face in defaming India. The United Nations Security Council on Wednesday rejected Islamabad's attempt to label two Indian nationals as militants by the 126 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee.

It is to be noted that Pakistan's attempt was to tarnish India as well as itself. But Pakistan has not been able to provide any evidence to label Indian nationals as militants. Pakistan's move was seen as a response to India's success in branding Jaish chief Masood Azhar a global militant. The four Indian nationals that Pakistan tried to label as global militants were Angara Appaji, Govinda Patnaik, Ajay Mistry and Benumadhab Dongra.

Pakistan alleges they are all part of an Afghanistan-based militant group. They helped organize militant attacks by Tehreek-e-Taliban and Jamaat-ul-Azra.

Pakistan's efforts were thwarted by the United States, Britain, Germany, France and Belgium. They wanted specific evidence from Pakistan to label these Indian nationals as militants. Sources said that Pakistan wanted to label Mistry and Dongra as global militants in June / July. That's when their attempt failed. On Wednesday, the United States said it would not label the other two as global militants. The United Nations says Pakistan has failed to provide any evidence that the four were militants.

TS Thirumurthy, India's Permanent Representative to the United Nations, tweeted that Pakistan's efforts to politicize 128 special processes with religious overtones had been thwarted by the United States. We would like to thank the members of the council who have thwarted Pakistan's efforts.
