Masood Azhar Declared Global Terrorist

Finally, Masood Azhar, head of the Jaish-e-Mohammad group has been labeled as a global terrorist by the UN. After the Pulwama attacks in February this year, US, UK, and France had initiated the proposal in the UN for this, but China was against it and had placed a technical hold (see article: China Blocks UNSC Bid To Ban JeM As Global Terrorist for more)

Before this China has vetoed the several attempts to blacklist him. This has been seen as a diplomatic win for India as he has been the mastermind of many attacks against India. Masood Azhar will now be subject to asset freeze and travel ban.
