Hafiz Saeed's release order: Pak 'hoodwinking' global community on terrorism

Pakistan Militant Leader

JuD Chief Hafiz Saeed may walk free after a Pakistani judicial body ordered yesterday his release from house arrest, in a setback to India's efforts to bring to justice the perpetrators of the 2008 Mumbai terror attack.

Pakistan's foreign minister Khawaja Asif had himself said "Hafiz Saeed and Lashkar-e-Taiba are a liability for us", but these same leaders will now say that they have no control over courts which have released the terror mastermind of 26/11 Mumbai attacks.

The MEA Spokesperson informed that external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj will be representing India at the SCO summit in Sochi on 30th November and 1st December.

Advocate Gurdev Singh Thakur said "It's very unfortunate that Pakistani Court ordered the release from house arrest of Islamist leader Hafiz Saeed".

"We plead the board not to order the release of Saeed as Pakistan may face global sanctions", the Pakistan government official had requested the judicial board.

Thakur appealed to Indian Government as well as worldwide communities to come forward to take stern action against this global terrorist Hafiz Saeed and his terrorists funding organisation Jamaat-ud-Dawah. Saeed was the prime organiser of the Mumbai terror attacks in which many Indians and nationals of several other countries were killed. "India, as indeed the entire worldwide community, is outraged that a self-confessed and UN-proscribed terrorist is being allowed to walk free and continue his evil agenda".


"The review board of the Lahore High Court asked the Punjab government to produce evidence against Hafiz Saeed for keeping him detained, but the government failed", Saeed's lawyer, A.K. Dogar, said.

On Wednesday (November 22), exactly four days before the ninth anniversary of the deadly terror attacks, the Lahore High Court in Pakistan made a decision to set free Saeed.

Saeed had been put under house arrest since Jan 31.

Through a video message, the chief of Pakistan's banned terrorist outfit Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), believed to be a front for Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), thanked the judges for his freedom.

An official said that the JuD activities are "already under the scanner", and this time, "we may again take action".
