Pak’s Abdul Makki named a global terrorist, a year after attempt blocked by China

Makki is the brother-in-law of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) leader and 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed.

New York:

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) on Monday listed Pakistan-based terrorist Abdul Rehman Makki as a global terrorist under its ISIL (Daesh) and Al-Qaeda sanctions committee.

The list comes after China last year offered India to appoint the leader of the global terrorist Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT). In June 2022, India slammed China after it blocked a proposal to list terrorist Abdul Rehman Makki under the Sanctions Committee, also known as the UNSC 1267 Committee.

“On 16 January 2023, the Security Council Committee, pursuant to resolutions 1267 (1999), 1989 (2011) and 2253 (2015) concerning ISIL (Daesh), Al-Qaida and individuals, groups, enterprises and associated entities, approved the addition of the entry specified below to its list of persons and entities subject to the assets freeze, travel ban and arms embargo referred to in paragraph 1 of resolution 2610 (2021) of the Security Council and adopted under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations,” the UN said in a statement.

India and the United States have already listed Makki as a terrorist under their national laws. He has been involved in fundraising, recruitment and radicalization of youth to violence and planning attacks in India, particularly in Jammu and Kashmir.

Makki is the brother-in-law of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) leader and 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed. He has held various leadership positions with LeT, a US Designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO). He was also instrumental in fundraising for LeT operations.

In 2020, a Pakistani terrorism court found Makki guilty of one count of financing terrorism and sentenced him to prison, according to the US State Department.

In the past, China has placed obstacles in the listing of known terrorists, particularly from Pakistan. He had repeatedly blocked nomination proposals for Maulana Masood Azhar, head of the Pakistan-based, UN-banned terrorist entity Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM).
