According to media reports, Pakistan had secretly released
Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist chief Maulana Masood Azhar from protective custody at
the juncture of continuous tensions between India and Pakistan after the scrapping
of special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
Masood Azhar was earlier
designated a terrorist by the United Nations in May 2019 and according to
Hindustan Times report, he has been released from the custody to ploy terrorist strikes in India.
Recent warning from Indian Army stated that an "underwater wing" of JeM was training terrorists to carry out terror strikes in India. Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Karambir Singh said all officials in maritime security are ensuring that there is no intrusion and attacks through the waters.
Masood Azhar was also the first individual to be designated as terrorist
through the recently amended Unlawful Activities prevention act, along with
26/11 mastermind Hafeez Said and 1993 Bomb Blast mastermind Dawood Ibrahim.
This was declared by the Ministry of Home affairs through a gazette
Pakistan is continuously trying to internalize the Kashmir issue
since the scrapping of article 370 but failed in its each and every attempt. Services
of the Samjhauta Express between India and Pakistan were stopped and Pakistan approached
UN to internationalize the Kashmir issue. However, it failed in its attempt as
almost every global country agreed that Kashmir was just a bilateral issue
between India and Pakistan and no third party can interfere in it.
