India has applauded the UN Security Council’s decision to add Abdul Rehman Makki, a terrorist of the Lashkar-e-Tayyiba and Hafiz Saeed’s brother-in-law, to its list of designated foreign nationals.
In LeT, Makki has held a variety of leadership positions, including assisting with fund-raising. Arindam Bagchi, a spokesperson for the ministry, responded to questions from the media on the listing by saying that India is still committed to adopting a zero-tolerance policy for terrorism. He declared that New Delhi would keep pushing the international community to act against terrorism in a credible, verifiable, and irreversible manner. He continued by saying that the region continues to face serious threats from terrorist groups and that UNSC sanctions and listing are important measures for reducing these dangers and destroying the support networks for terror.
