Masood Azhar, the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) chief, on Wednesday, may be listed as a global terrorist at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) meet. However, this can happen only if China decides not to place a hold on the move. The fingers are crossed in New Delhi.

China in the past blocked at least three attempts to bring the JeM chief under UN sanction.

India on Saturday in a strong message to Islamabad said that if it claimed to be a "naya Pakistan with nayi soch", it should show "new action" against terror outfits operating on its soil and end cross-border terrorism in support of its assertions.

"We are seeing the same script that has been played out earlier after the terrorist attacks on our Parliament in December 2001, the Mumbai terrorist attack in November 2008 and the attack on Pathankot airbase in January 2016," Ministry of External Affairs spokesman Raveesh Kumar told the media. 

"Pakistan claims to proscribe groups and individuals, but this is confined only on paper. Actually, terrorist groups and individuals continue their activities without hindrance. 

"Pakistan has not shown any serious intent to address the legitimate concerns of India and the global community," he said.

"We remain resolute in our determination to persuade the international community of the necessity of compelling Pakistan to move beyond mere words and to show credible, verifiable and sustained actions.

"We have, and we will continue to act with responsibility and maturity. Our armed forces continue to maintain strict vigil and will remain determined in the defence of the nation and its citizens," Kumar added.

The spokesman added that Pakistan continued to live in a state of denial.
