Pakistan’s Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) is responsible for the 26/11 heinous terror attacks on Mumbai, China acknowledged. China’s media ‘CCTV-9’ has published a documentary to support this statement. Surprisingly, China used its veto power against United Nation’s action on terrorists like Lashkar’s founder Hafiz Saeed and Maulana Masood Azhar. Change in China’s stand is thus noticeable.
There is nothing new in ‘CCTV-9’s documentary, even though for the first time, China has acknowledged Lashkar’s part in these terror attacks. Before this, China avoided to take a stand against ‘Lashkar’ & ‘Jaish’, the terrorist organisations of Maulana Masood Azhar. Last year in United Nation’s Security Council there was proposal on table to sanction ‘Lashkar’ leaders along with Al Qaeda leaders. That time aligning with Pakistan, China used its Veto power and avoided action on Lashkar’s leaders. Technical reasons given by China on this are going to expire in coming days. That’s why it is said that, China’s TV news channel in its documentary took three name of Lashkar. At the same time timing of Chinese news channel’s this documentary is being discussed.
India’s Prime Minster who is currently on US visit where strategic cooperation between both the nations are becoming comprehensive. Same time there is a rising anger in India for China who is shielding terrorists like ‘Hafiz Saeed, ‘Maulana Masood Azhar’ and restricting India’s entry in ‘NSG’. This impacted Government of India who took such decision which could be alarming for China. India’s attacking decisions include ban on Chinese products and sending warships in South China Sea. Also India’s readiness to supply Brahmos missiles to Vietnam is included in these decisions. Hence forth India will not tolerate any leverages while trading with China, is what a clear message is being given to China. Change in India’s attacking stand is forcing China to think on its decisions making, to some extend. This is what impacted the CCTV-9’s documentary.
