The US Supreme Court upheld a part of the travel ban issued by President Trump that targeted six predominantly Muslim countries. The ban will be enforced on targeted countries, and won’t allow travelers “who lack any bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.”
Basically, people who have personal links to the US, such as having family living in the US, and students studying in American universities will be exempted. The travel ban is said to be executed within 72 hours in a professional, organized and timely way. The ban will remain in place for 90 days, and also would not allow any immigrants from the listed countries for 120 days. The countries effected will be: Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
However, Contrary to the belief, the number of travelers from the countries have dropped sharply by more than half due to “extreme vetting” by US authorities.
US has also designated Syed Salahuddin (71), also known as Mohammed Yusuf Shah, the leader of Kashmiri militant outfit Hizbul Mujahideen, as a global terrorist as called by India. This is a significant blow to Pakistan, who thinks of Syed Salahuddin as a “freedom fighter.”
The Indian government has welcomed the decision, and said that this will assist them to take any vital decisions necessary to safeguard the interest of the Indian people.
These two are big decisions.
The travel ban might help US to safeguard it’s territory, however at the same time, the media might hurl hurtful remarks for agreeing to such a travel ban.
India will be proud to see that Syed Salahuddin has been declared as a global terrorist by the US. This will prompt better action and will by the Indian forces.
