‘Special Terrorist Zones’ for LeT, JeM must end: India

Published

United Nations, Nov 21: Declaring that Afghanistan’s stability and security was tied to that of the entire region, India has demanded an end to the “Special Terrorist Zones” in Pakistan where militant outfits, the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) are protected.

“It is imperative to address the support that terrorist organisations like the Taliban, Haqqani Network, Islamic State (IS), Al Oaeda and its designated affiliates such as the LeT and JeM operating outside the fabric of international law, draw from outside Afghanistan,” India’s Deputy Permanent Representative Tanmaya Lal told the General Assembly on Monday during a debate on the situation in that country.

“The Special Terrorist Zones, safe havens and sanctuaries beyond Afghanistan’s border must end,” he added, without naming Pakistan while the context made clear the country he was referring to.

“Addressing global terrorism needs a comprehensive, uncompromising and a cohesive response from the international community.

“Afghanistan’s security and stability is tied to that of the entire region.”

Lal criticised the UN for failing to act adequately to fight terrorism in the region.

“Even as this debate is going on, we find the new threats being posed by the IS in Afghanistan.

“While the cowardliness and the frequency of terror attacks in Afghanistan have reached new heights, and the terrorists continue to gain territory and resources of Afghan people, unfortunately, here in this body, we have witnessed little change.

“The Security Council is still debating whether or not to designate new leaders or to freeze the assets of the slain leader of Taliban,” he added.

Afghanistan has asked the UN to add the new Taliban leader Mullah Haibatullah Akhundzada to the sanctions list.

He succeeded Akhtar Mohammad Mansour, who was killed in a US drone strike last year.

Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi, Jul 12 : Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday again attacked the government over the Ladakh face-off, and asked what happened that China “took away” India’s land when Prime Minister Narendra Modi is at the helm.

He also tagged a news report quoting a defence expert, alleging that the Government is “misleading” the media on the Chinese disengagement along the LAC and that disengagement at the Galwan Valley is disadvantageous to India.

“What has happened that under Modi ji rule, China took away Mother India’s sacred land,” he asked in a tweet in Hindi.

Gandhi has been attacking Modi and his government on the standoff in Ladakh and has accused the prime minister of “surrendering” India’s land to China.

The Indian and Chinese armies are locked in a bitter standoff in multiple locations in eastern Ladakh for the last eight weeks. The tension escalated manifold after the Galwan Valley clashes on June 15 in which 20 Indian Army personnel were killed.

New Delhi, July 12 : The Land & Development Office, which comes under the Union Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, has sent a notice to news agency PTI, demanding it to cough up more than Rs 84 crore as penalty. The notice dated July 7 says that the penalty has been imposed due to “breaches” at its office in Delhi.

The notice that sought Rs 84,48,23,281 argues that “the less will be pleased to regularise the breaches in the premises temporarily up to 14.07.2020 and withdraw the right of re-entry of the premises subject to the following conditions being fulfilled by you within 30 days from the date of issue of this letter.”

The notice also stipulates that the news agency needs to give an undertaking on non-judicial stamp paper stating that it will pay the difference of “misuse/damage charges” if the land rates are revised with effect from 01.04.2016 by the government and will also remove the “breaches” by 14.07.2020 or get them regularised by paying charges.

The notice also warns that further action to execute the deed has to be subject to complete payment and putting the premise to use according to the masterplan.

The Land & Development Office so warned that an additional 10 per cent interest may need to be coughed out by PTI if it fails to furnish the concerned amount within the stipulated time period.

Additionally, if the news agency fails to comply with the terms within the said period, the concession will be withdrawn. In other words, they will have to pay the penalty up to the actual date of payment then and will also be subject to actions.

This stern notice for alleged violations by PTI comes closely on the heels of national broadcaster Prasar Bharati locking horns with PTI over its reportage that it called “anti national”.

Prasar Bharti had recently sent a letter threatening to end its “relationship” with PTI after it carried an interview of Chinese Ambassador Sun Weidong, where he blamed India for the India-China violent standoff that saw 20 Indian bravehearts getting martyred.
