New Delhi, Agency. After Maulana Masood Azhar, there is bound to be a question mark on China who saved Abdul Rehman Makki. This has hindered the joint proposal of America and India to designate Abdul Rehman Makki as a global terrorist. For this, China has used its veto power.

The proposal to designate Makki as a global terrorist was introduced under the Security Council’s Al-Qaeda and ISIL Sanctions Committee, known as the UNSC 1267 Committee. In early June, India and the US had demanded the designation of Pakistani-origin terrorist Abdul Rehman Makki as a global terrorist. Both India and America have declared him a terrorist under their law.

Makki behind terrorist attacks in Jammu and Kashmir and other areas of India

Makki has been behind the terrorist attacks in India especially in Jammu and Kashmir. In fact, Makki has been involved in terrorist activities like planning violence and attacks and for this, recruiting youth and raising funds. Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) chief and 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed is the brother-in-law of terrorist Makki. Makki received several important positions within LeT. The US has designated LeT as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO).

Have eaten jail air in 2020

Makki has also raised funds for LeT activities. In 2020, a Pakistani Anti-Terrorism Court convicted Makki of terror financing and sentenced him to prison. This is not the first time that China is shielding a terrorist. Earlier this had also come to the fore in the defense of Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist Maulana Masood Azhar. But now why China and Pakistan have come forward in the rescue of Makki. In this way, saving a terrorist from sanctions can prove to be harmful for China.
