All these 4 terrorists will be known as in their individual identity as terrorists from now on. It’s the first time that Dawood is named as a terrorist in the Indian database.
In the recent amendments that are made in the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act, the central government announced these 4 biggest faces of terror expansion as individual terrorists. The 4 names are Lashkar Chief Mohd Saeed, JeM’s Masood Azhar, Operation head of LeT and the one who consecrated 26/11 Zakir R Lakhvi, and the Mumbai blast mastermind Dawood Ibrahim.
While the two organizations, Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Muhammad are already prohibited and put many bans on it for any operation here on Indian soil and are nominated as terrorist organizations, it’s the first time when Dawood Ibrahim, who is said to be in Pakistan’s ISI protection and operating worldwide from there, is being nominated and now will be identified as a terrorist.
These four are already being identified as global terrorists by the United Nation’s security council and red corner notices are issued by Interpol on all 4 of them.
The amendment in UAPA was done last month which now allows the government to identify terrorists on an individual basis if they found out anyone maligning in any such activity.
Now, this step by the Government of India helped in synchronizing the blacklist of our country to that of the UN on a global level. As the data is made available for the public, any company can now add them to their own list of people with whom not to do any business.
A statement from the Home Ministry said that this individual identification will help the agencies in boosting the investigation and trials of the cases.
