Makki is known to be a very powerful speaker. His speeches are aimed at agitating the people of Pakistan against India and the United States
New Delhi, Jan 17: Abdul Rehman Makki, the brother-in-law of Lashkar-e-Tayiba chief, Hafiz Saeed and a major fund raiser for the outfit has been declared a global terrorist by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).
He was declared a global terrorist under the UNSC’s ISIL (Da’esh) and Al-Qaeda Sanctions Committee.
The decision is a major win for India after China had blocked the proposal at the behest of Pakistan to block him from being declared a global terrorist in 2020. China has repeatedly placed hurdles at the UNSC following requests from its all-weather friend, Pakistan. It has in the past blocked India’s proposals to declare, Hafiz Saeed, Masood Azhar and Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi as global terrorists. However India has managed to keep up the pressure and convince the UNSC to declare these persons as global terrorists.
