Not only the police & medical officials but even the terrorist organizations and militant groups like the Taliban, Hamas, Hezbollah are very serious about implementing the government lockdown and check the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In Brazil, the mafia ruled slums of Favela are so under-resourced that they even lack the basic facilities like clean water to wash their hands. The favelas maintain a state of enmity with the government officials who have not yet issued a curfew.

Although the government has overlooked the highly infecting nature of the coronavirus, cartels and criminal gangs that operate in the impoverished area have already issued a curfew due to coronavirus.

Driving through the narrow streets of the shantytown, the gangs have been announcing the residents to stay home and take the Covid-19 pandemic seriously or face consequences.

This is one of the many instances where terrorist groups, mutineers and criminal groups are doing their best to curb the pandemic.

Hezbollah, Hamas and Taliban Fighting Covid-19

Lebanon saw more than 100 ambulances, several of them equipped with respirators orderly lined up with one Hezbollah volunteer in front of each ambulance. Clad in Hazmat suits and practicing all rules of social distancing, the militant group — Hezbollah has stepped in to fight the global pandemic.

Showing military preparedness for Covid-19, the  head of Hezbollah’s executive council, Sayyed Hashem Safieddine said ” “It is a real war that we must confront with the mindset of a warrior.”

Hezbollah aims to battle the spread of the deadly virus and use its organizational capabilities to ensure proper treatment for all patients. The group mainly focuses on providing free treatment and testing for those infected with the virus. In addition to these efforts, they are also renting out hotels to be used for the isolation of Covid-19 patients.

Cases of Taliban joining the ongoing battle against the pandemic was seen in Afghanistan. The Islamic fundamentalist group has circulated videos on preventive measures to avoid contracting the virus.

Furthermore, they have also engaged their fighters in handing out face masks and soap. The militant group has also agreed to offer a   safe passage to health workers and international organizations working to prevent the spread of coronavirus in Afghanistan.

This comes as a surprise as the Taliban had earlier banned the operations of WHO and Red Cross in the areas under their jurisdiction last year.

Similar incidents have also been reported in the Gaza Strip in Israel where Hamas, an Islamic militant organization is building two large quarantine facilities. Considering Gaza’s already shattered health system, Hamas is assuring the public that the threat of the virus is can be contained.

Speeding up their efforts to flatten the curve in Gaza, Hamas has also banned weekly street markets,  closed wedding halls, cafes and mosques and extended the quarantine period by a week.

The rise of these terror groups in fighting the pandemic comes due to week government policies or by the ongoing war that has ravaged the region.  Often, these terror groups attempt to gain the public’s validation and trust while also looking to boost their international support and reputation.

Other reasons include simple human sympathy towards their motherland, friends, and family who live in that region. Their efforts also stems from the fact that they want their family to remain healthy and safe during the pandemic.

Amidst a global crisis like coronavirus, social and political differences within a region play a marginal role compared to the willingness of all these groups to fight the pandemic together.

The relationship between violent groups and humanitarian organizations can be tense because of the uncertain behavior of some of these groups towards the aid workers, but for now, all have joined hands to battle the pandemic.

Pakistan Unhappy With The Arrest, Expulsion Of ‘Spy Diplomats’ By India

Published

on

India recently expelled two officials of the Pakistan high commission after they were arrested by the security forces on charges of espionage, the Indian external affairs ministry said.

According to reports, three officials of the Pakistani mission were detained on Sunday while allegedly trying to obtain classified information on the Indian security establishment. The Indian move came as tensions between the two nuclear-armed neighbours are already high.

The three men initially reportedly insisted that they were Indians and even displayed fake Aadhar cards, the officials said. “Later, during interrogation, they admitted they were officials at the Pakistan high commission and worked for the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI),” according to reports in the Indian media.

A case was registered against them under the Official Secrets Act. Consequently, the government ordered the expulsion of Abid and Khan, who both work for the visa section at the Pakistani mission.

“The government has declared both these officials persona non grata for indulging in activities incompatible with their status as members of a diplomatic mission and asked them to leave the country within twenty-four hours,” read an official handout issued by the Indian foreign ministry, which also summoned the Pakistani chargé d’affaires on the issue.

But within hours of the Indian move, Pakistan reacted sharply and denounced the expulsion of its diplomats. “The Indian action has been accompanied by a negative pre-planned and orchestrated media campaign, which is a part of persistent anti-Pakistan propaganda,” said a foreign office statement.

The statement said the two staff members of the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi were detained by the Indian authorities on “false and unsubstantiated charges.” They were, however, released on intervention by the High Commission.

“We condemn the detention and torture as well as threatening and pressuring of the diplomatic officials to accept false charges,” said Foreign Office spokesperson Aisha Farooqui. She said Pakistan strongly rejected the baseless Indian allegations and condemned the Indian action calling it a violation of the Vienna Convention.

“The High Commission for Pakistan in New Delhi has always worked within the parameters of international law and diplomatic norms. The Indian action is clearly aimed at shrinking diplomatic space for the working of Pakistan High Commission,” she added.

Later, Indian Charge d’Affaires was summoned to the Foreign Office for a demarche over declaring two officials of Pakistan High Commission persona non grata.

“The Indian Charge d’Affaires was summoned to the Foreign Office for a strong demarche, conveying Pakistan’s condemnation of the Indian decision to declare two officials of the High Commission for Pakistan in New Delhi persona non grata and rejection of all baseless Indian allegations against the High Commission officials,” a Foreign Office statement stated.

China Warns India Of Economical Repercussions If It Supports The US In Cold War Against China

China’s aim of upholding friendly ties with India hasn’t changed, so Beijing will still provide assistance to India by boosting bilateral partnership to help its economic recovery and expanding bilateral trade ties.

As US-China tensions intensify, Chinese state media – Global Times writes that many experts are predicting that both nations are set to enter a Cold War and advises India to stay away from US-China rivalry.

Chinese State Media Blasts Trump For Driving A Wedge Between India & China

GT writes – with sentiment building in India, many experts have urged New Delhi to join the new Cold War and utilise the situation. Such senseless opinions are nothing but ridiculous and should not influence the Indian government’s position.

GT claims that India has little to gain from interfering in US-China dispute and Modi government needs to face the new geopolitical development objectively and reasonably. India needs to be cautious not to include the US factor in its approach with China.

The same holds true in China-India border conflict and the offer of US arbitration is worthless as both China and India have the ability to resolve their problems bilaterally.

In a possible US-China Cold War, India must not favour the US or becomes a US pawn against China as it would deteriorate economic ties between both the nations and the Indian economy may not be able to take ‘financial hit’ at such time, GT cautions.

GT warns that China doesn’t want to see a situation where politics leads to financial consequences, so Modi government is encouraged to view the India-China ties with the practical mindset instead of being lured by nationalist sentiment.
