“Masood Khan has repeatedly demonstrated a soft spot for Jihadi-terrorists, including Aafia Siddiqui, a convicted terrorist operative known as Lady Al-Qaeda”
A top Indian diaspora group urged U.S. President Joe Biden to reject the appointment of Masood Khan as Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United States, contending that the diplomat is a partisan and ally of terrorist groups.
The Foundation for India and Indian Diaspora Studies (FIIDS), in a statement, on February 2 urged Mr. Biden to discard the appointment of the “Jihadi-terrorist-sympathizer” Masood Khan as Pakistani Ambassador to the United States.
“We also request Secretary of State Antony Blinken and members of the Senate and House committees on foreign relations to support this rejection,” it said.
“Masood Khan has repeatedly demonstrated a soft spot for Jihadi-terrorists, including Aafia Siddiqui, a convicted terrorist operative known as ‘Lady Al-Qaeda’.
His support to designated terrorist organizations under the U.S. law such as Hizbul Mujahideen, Harkat-ul-Mujahideen (HuM), and Jamaat-e-Islami, is not only inimical to U.S. Interests, but also to global peace,” FIIDS said.
