India 'disappointed' as China foils bid to blacklist JeM chief

However, on all occasions China, a veto-wielding permanent member of the UN Security Council, blocked India's proposal from being adopted by the Sanctions Committee.

Earlier, with China for the fourth time putting on hold the proposal against Azhar in the UN Security Council, Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said it is a major setback for the global fight against terrorism and "reaffirms Chinese position of being an inseparable ally of terrorism's breeding ground Pakistan". But US and European officials say they are waiting to see if the crackdown is effective or if the militants' infrastructure will spring back to life once global pressure on Islamabad subsides.

"We will continue to pursue all available avenues to ensure that terrorist leaders who are involved in heinous attacks on our citizens are brought to justice".

In the face of this unfortunate development, should India ban products from China?

Many Twitteratis outpoured their anger against China for not declaring Masood Azhar as global terrorists and as a mark to show patriotism people started this trend.

To Modi or the NDA government's credit, nearly all major countries, including permanent members of the Security Council, favoured India's position and wanted Azhar to be declared a global terrorist.

Germany faces losing U.S. intelligence if it uses Huawei equipment
Neither the US State Department, the German economics minister nor Huawei immediately responded to requests for comment. And other countries have issued security warnings about Huawei and China, including the Czech Republic and Lithuania .

India's diplomats must be going back to their drawing-boards to figure out what went wrong with their foreign policy vis-à-vis China, while the Narendra Modi government's failure to get Masood Azhar declared a global terrorist will keep haunting the BJP in the forthcoming elections. "Also raises serious questions about the benefits of Modi's photo-op diplomacy with Xi Jinping", tweeted Sadanand Dhume from American Enterprise Institute.

China's move on Azhar also triggered a storm of anti-Chinese sentiment on Twitter with #BoycottChinaProduct attracting hundreds of tweets. Swing with Xi in Gujarat 2. The JeM had claimed responsibility for the attack. Hug Xi in Delhi. 3.

China has twice blocked - in 2016 and 2017 - attempts to impose sanctions on the JeM leader.

India Wednesday expressed disappointment soon after China put a technical hold on designating Azhar.

Jaish-e-Mohammad literally means the Army of Mohammad. India has to use data and resources to convince the world that Pakistan is real source of terror and a safe haven for terrorists.

India is in the throes of an election campaign and, in the politically charged atmosphere, China's decision has become an issue with the opposition Congress president Rahul Gandhi labelling it as a diplomatic failure on the part of the government.
