India while conveying a strong point to China about Maulana Masood Azhar, the Jaish-e-Mohammad Chief also sought help to fight against the ISIS.
There are two ways of looking at this scenario and officials with both the Intelligence Bureau and the National Investigating Agency tell OneIndia that from China we can expect help against the ISIS, but if there is an issue concerning Pakistan, then it is better not to be too optimistic.
The NIA has already sent a letter rogatory to China seeking the chat details of Areeb Majeed who was arrested by the agency for his links with the ISIS. The NIA says it is confident that China would help with the chat details following which a supplementary chargesheet will be filed.
About Pakistan, India is not optimistic
China had blocked a move by India to have Azhar banned by the United Nations. Not only did China block this attempt but even lectured India on what being a good neighbour is.
"China will continue to block any attempt made by India where Pakistan is concerned, but we will continue to raise objections to the same," an Indian official said.
China has a lot at stake in Pakistan and normally tends to heed to their requests. Pakistan has used the terrorist vs terrorist theory. They have classified terrorists as good and bad and the Jaish-e-Mohammad or the Lashkar-e-Tayiba fall under the category of the former.
Even after India made the move in the UN to ban Azhar, Pakistan impressed upon China to block this move. This move by China was even reciprocated by the Jaish-e-Mohammad in its mouth piece.
There was a brazen article which went on to say it was God and China which saved Azhar from an Indian propaganda.
