After United Nations Security Committee designated Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist - a huge diplomatic victory for India - Omar Abdullah tweeted on the issue raising questions on the entire issue. 

Abdullah wasted no opportunity to rake up a controversy about India's efforts to ensure Azhar was designated as a terrorist in the United Nations Sanctions list.

In  a tweet, he said:

"Is this true that the listing of Masood Azhar as a global terrorist was only possible because all references to Pulwama & terrorism in Kashmir were dropped?"

In a big win for India, owing to its diplomatic efforts, the United Nations Security Council has designated Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist under the United Nations sanctions list. 

Earlier on Wednesday, Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed that Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar is now blacklisted as a global terrorist. 

The founder of the terror outfit perpetrated the Pulwama terror attack that martyred 40 CRPF Jawans, following which India received massive global support, of countries like Russia, United States, United Kingdom, Israel, France and more. 

France was one of the first nation to issue a statement after the Jaish-e-Mohammed chief was designated as a global terrorist in the United Nations Sanctions list.

China said on Tuesday that the vexed issue of designating Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist by the UN will be "properly resolved" but it did not give any timeline, days after Chinese President Xi Jinping met Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan here.

China put a technical hold in March on a fresh proposal to impose a ban on the head of Pakistan-based JeM, it was for the fourth time that China blocked Azhar's listing as a global terrorist by the UN.
