New Delhi. French Foreign Minister Catherine Colonna will travel to India next Wednesday for her first visit as minister. But just before this visit, France supported India on the issue of terrorism at the UNSC. France has backed India’s proposal to declare Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists Mohiuddin Aurangzeb Alamgir and Ali Kashif Jaan as global terrorists by the UNSC 1267 Sanctions Committee. Colona, who is on his first visit as minister, will be in Delhi from September 14-15 and will meet with the country’s top leaders.
According to a report by Hindustan Times, Aurangzeb Alamgir was the main link in the 2019 Pulwama attack on behalf of Jaish-e-Mohammed. According to officials familiar with the matter, Aurangzeb Alamgir alias Mujahid Bhai and Ali Kashif Jan alias Jan Ali Kashif were declared terrorists under UAPA by the Ministry of Interior on 12 April. Alamgir, a resident of Bahawalpur, Pakistan, was the main conspirator in the 2019 Pulwama terror attack. Alamgir was a fundraiser and undercover commander.
40 CRPF members are known to have been martyred in the Pulwama terrorist attack in 2019. Officials have said that Alamgir is responsible for the infiltration of Afghan terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir as well as terrorist attacks in The valley. Describing the terrorist Kashif, the officials said that Kashif Jaan, a resident of Charsadda in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, is the operational commander and Masood Azhar is part of the main planning committee of the Bahawalpur-based Jaish Group led by Alvi Family Enterprises.
Kashif was the handler of the terrorists involved in the Pathankot air station attack in 2016 and is the main defendant in several cases being investigated by the National Investigation Agency (NIA). According to officials, Kashif, one of Jaish’s top commanders, leads the terrorist organization across the border in Jammu. Along with this, the Pakistani military is conspiring to send infiltrators into India under covert fire.
