Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday voiced concerns over China’s move to veto a UN action against Pakistan for releasing alleged Mumbai terror mastermind Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, the Press Trust of India reported.

According to details, India has taken up the issue with China at the highest levels of leadership.

Modi’s outburst came after China blocked India’s move in the United Nations for action against Pakistan.

Separately, India’s Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Vikas Swarup confirmed that they were taking up the matter with Chinese leadership.

Respodning to question on China’s statement on Lakhvi, Swarup said that, “In the case of China, this matter has been taken up at the highest level.”

“Our concerns in this matter were conveyed to the Chair of the [UN Security Council] 1267 Committee. We also raised this bilaterally with the other members of the Committee.”

The UN Sanctions Committee, which met at India’s request, was to seek a clarification from Pakistan on Lakhvi’s release in the Mumbai attacks trial but China blocked the move on grounds that India did not provide sufficient information, sources said, according to NDTV.

India approached the UN last month against Lakhvi’s release in April from Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi. Lakhvi was formally released from Adiala Jail after he submitted surety bonds of Rs2 million, following the Lahore High Court (LHC) verdict declaring his detention orders illegal.

India’s permanent representative to the UN, Asoke Mukherjee, wrote to the UN’s Sanctions’ Committee terming Lakhvi’s release a violation of a UN resolution on terrorist organisations and groups, including the al Qaeda and the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).

The sanctions committee includes China as a permanent member of the UN Security Council.

Following his release, the United States expressed ‘grave concerns’ and urged the country to bring the perpetrators of the 26/11 attacks to justice.

Further, US Ambassador to India Richard Verma had termed the release of alleged Mumbai attack mastermind Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi from Adiala jail a mistake by Pakistan.

Lakhvi was arrested in 2008 after an FIR was registered against him based on the information provided by Indian authorities. On November 25, 2009, Lakhvi was indicted along with six others for planning and helping to carry out the Mumbai attacks. An anti-terrorism court granted him bail against Rs500,000 surety bonds on December 18, 2014. The same day, a local magistrate issued a detention order for one month. On December 29, 2014, Islamabad High Court set aside the detention order and directed the authorities to release him. The Okara DCO ordered his detention on March 12 under the Maintenance of Public Order Ordinance.

    If india has such solid evidence against Lakhvi, why can’t it share it? India has no qualms about trying to publicly embarrass pakistan, so if India can’t come forward with its evidence, it’s probably because India’s evidence is weak. Lakhvi may indeed be responsible, but indian intelligence services clearly can’t gather enough evidence to make a good case. Just as Pakistan’s legal system is weak, so is India’s. But unfortunately for india, sufficient valid evidence is needed.Recommend

    As a matter of fact, the nearly 2 million strong Filipino community recently staged nationwide demonstrations in the US to protest against China’s belligerence and aggressive posturing in the West Philippine Sea. China, which complains about terrorism when it is itself affected, has lost its credibility by supporting Pakistan’s release of a religious fanatic and despicable terrorist. India should also take steps against China. Boycotting “Made in China” products will hurt that country the most.

Two targets with one shot, exposing China and Pakistan. Do you think India is interested in putting Lakhavi in jail , not at all because that will send a message to the world that Pakistan has become a responsible state, which we don’t want.

    Both India and Pakistan are involved in this proxy war supporting insurgencies and terrorism. While Pakistan has learned lessons and is engaged in an all out war to eliminate terrorism, be it religious fundamentalism, sectarian or criminal, it is unfortunate that India ever since Modi’s election has upped the war hysteria and while in Bangladesh proudly proclaimed that it helped in breakup of Pakistan in 1971.

    Pleasantries are all right but Modi will need to attend to basics if he expects people back home to applaud. It is not enough to talk goodie goodie with presidents and prime ministers and come back with persistent complaints in our minds against China and Pakistan. In fact for India there isn’t much to choose between China and USA: both have been protecting Pakistan in UNSC for ages, with China putting up its latest performance only yesterday. Besides, the UN is proving itself a mere talking shop without taking effective steps on India’s complaints. Add to it the changing scenario in world relations: the UN system still reflects the outdated world order as it existed in the immediate aftermath of WWII. China has been content with getting its own permanent membership of UNSC (and that was a long time ago) but it has been intent on blocking the way to India’s permanent membership of UNSC. There is something to be said for the view that the UN system has outlived its usefulness and perhaps something better needs to be put in its place. At the very least India should consider seriously whether it is worth India’s while and consistent with India’s self-respect to continue to be associated with an obsolete system which serves no useful purpose any longer. The UN now is a mere loud sounding nothing. This has to be coupled with the need to remain engaged with several countries and explore all avenues and organizations where India can counter unfriendly moves by China and Pakistan as well as by USA and Russia (both have been supplying arms to Pakistan lately). India needs new thinking and deft diplomacy.Recommend

    I hear you, they (Indians) are apt at playing the blame game, and they never let go of a chance to tarnish our reputation. I believe that their govt. Is destabilizing at the moment and they are grasping straws right now, no matter how asinine their claims are.Recommend

    @AB: Yes voice samples. I have enough evidence to prove that voice samples of Zaki Ur Rehman Lakhvi and others are recorded by Indian and US intelligence during the attack.

    BTW I smoke Benson and Hedges. You?Recommend

    China’ action is just a small hint the way this region is shaping up. Every time ther is a veto it is a slap. Stop playing tricks. And know that America is not about to alter its policies on China and it seems the South China Sea issue will get resolved after some give and take without the need for America to need bullies to gang up. From time to time Pakistan may get American tickle to reassure its new baby in general terms and we understand that….but nothing more than that.

    It is a pleasure to see that India does now like the idea of taking matters to the UN and that would further facilitate other issues on which bilateral ism has produced no results.Recommend

    I thought Filipinos are more intelligent and reasonable but your approach is disappointing. I am not trying to defend the person you have called fanatic but to make the point that he was not released by the government. He was given bail by the court who would like more presentable evidence to move ahead with its verdict. If the Indians or people like you are asking for a verdict that you want is not only unfair but stupid and unreasonable. And by the way what you know about this fanatic to call him a terrorist. You seem to be hiding you true Indian ID or you have very little knowledge what is happening in this part.Recommend

    I am truly a Filipino, despite all the aspersions you are trying to cast on my person (sorry to say, but most Pakistanis who do not know how to argue intelligently resort to personal attacks and drift away from an issue on which they tend to be losing). I have many Pakistani friends and they agree that their country is one of the 10 most dangerous places to live in (along with Somalia, Sudan, North Korea and other rogue nations). Believe me, there have been mass demonstrations in the U.S. and elsewhere in the world by the burgeoning Filipino diaspora against China’s aggression in the South China Seas. Read the “Asian Journal” (published in New York/New Jersey) issue dated June 19-25, 2015. The story, on the front page, is captioned “Filipino-Americans protest against China, urge communities to boycott ‘Made-in-China’ products”. I hope you also have a sense of shame to be protecting and supporting Lakhvi, a known terrorist who has been declared so by the UN, USA and other civilized nations. Pakistan’s stock is so bad in the world that it is often referred to as “Terroristan”. I hope you can start by saying that it is wrong to kill innocent civilians (be it Indian, Pakistani or any other nationality). If you do that, you would have taken the right step in your life, instead of swallowing all the gibberish fed to you by your government and fanatic clergy. Recommend

    We have recently paid a heavy price with the blood of our children in Peshawar. We should not play good or bad terrorist. Lets face it, even we agree that India is involved in cross border terrorism in Pakistan, they are using our own people to do so. We need a strong socio-economic infrastructure, provide people basic needs of their lives and clean up our own house as well from all rental terrorists. India and Pakistan need to clean their own houses rather them blaming each other. Recommend

    Chinese know very well that Lakhvi is guilty but they have their diplomatic compulsions. China has to support friends like North Korea too,…Recommend

    Like us Pakistanis you too drifted away from the main point…and avoided responding to what I said about Lakhvi – Instead lost your composure and went on to put your blistered azz (Opse excuse my French) on exhibition. No idea what Pakistan has done to you philpinos but may be you are spending time with our enemies in a nearby gutter in our neighbouring country. By all means do anything to China, do not buy their goods and hurt your own trade, we have nothing to do with what is happening in your region other than good dip
    Locative relations with Phillipine despite encountering ranting and raving turds like you.

    Think again why Lakhvi was bailed by the court.The UN and U.S. have their own reasons to say what they are saying, none doing so with any seriousness. Perhaps because they are aware and respect the good work Pakistan is undertaking to achieve peace in the region….and they also know what India too has been doing to harm Pakistan. Go on the Net and see what the recently retired U.S. Defence Sec, Chuck Hagel says about Indian involvement in arming militants in Pakistan’s Baluchistan province. And go to BBC web to see how Indians are funding and training vulnerable Pakistanis to carry out terror attacks in Pakistan. If you are still not convinced that India is deeply involved in terror activities while all these years Pakistan has been fighting against this menace at the coast of damaging its own economy , there is no point in wasting time on you.

    Despite your low views about Pakistani as you pointed out I wonder how come you carry your azz all the way to reach this Pakistani site?Recommend
