Pakistan based Makki blacklisted as ‘global terrorist’ by UN


New York: In a significant milestone, Abdul Rehman Makki, the deputy commander of the terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) located in Pakistan, has been named a global terrorist by the UN, making him subject to an asset freeze, travel ban, and arms embargo.

After China lifted its hold on a joint petition by India and the US, the UN Security Council’s 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee added 68-year-old Makki, the brother-in-law of LeT Chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, to its list of designated terrorists.

India welcomes United Nations listing of Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist Abdul Rehman Makki by UNSC. Spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs Arindam Bagchi said India remains committed to pursuing a zero-tolerance approach to terrorism.

Bagchi said, we welcome the decision of the Council’s ISIL and Al Qaida Sanctions Committee to list LeT terrorist Makki, who is also the brother-in-law of Hafiz Saeed. Makki has occupied various leadership roles in LeT, including raising funds for the organisation.

In a statement explaining why Makki was added to the sanctions list, the sanctions committee stated that Makki and other LeT/JUD operatives “have been active in raising funds, recruiting and radicalizing youth to violence and planning assaults in India, notably in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K).”
