So, four leaders of the Pakistan-based terrorist group suspected of being behind the attack on Bombay last month have been placed on a UN Security Council terrorist blacklist. They include the alleged mastermind of the terror strike, Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, a Pakistan national. (Gosh, who would have figured that?)
The UN move represents a fillip for India, which has demanded that Pakistan do more to curb the terrorists who operate from its territory. Relations between the two nuclear armed neighbours have deteriorated sharply in the wake of the Mumbai attacks. The UN move means that the four members of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), a notoriously brutal militant faction, will have their bank accounts frozen and face travel bans, among other sanctions.
Listen, this is hopeless. IF these guys were behind the Bombay TERROR outrage, they need rounded up, thrown behind bars, and if proven guilty, executed. This UN babble about travel bans is pointless, a diversion to nowhere.
