Hafiz release mainstreaming of proscribed terrorists by Pak

Pakistan hasn't changed policy of shielding terrorists: India on Hafiz Saeed release

On Wednesday, a three-judge review board rejected the Punjab Pakistan government's appeal to extend Hafiz Saeed's detention for three more months as it failed to provide enough evidence against. In a strong reaction, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said Saeed's release confirmed once again the lack of seriousness by the Pakistan government in bringing to justice perpetrators of terrorism, including individuals and entities designated by the UN.

India says Saeed is the main plotter of the 2008 Mumbai attack in which 166 people were killed between 26-29 November.

The move is likely to anger American and Indian officials, who have accused Saeed of helping plan the Mumbai attacks in which 10 Pakistani terrorists rampaged through India's largest city, shooting up two luxury hotels, a Jewish center, and a train station during a siege that lasted for several days.

The Pakistan government may slap fresh charges against Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed in order to keep him in custody, media reports said on Thursday.

The JuD is believed to be the front organisation for the banned Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) which is responsible for carrying out the Mumbai attack.

He further said that Saeed has been held "without any legality", and hence, a violation of the constitution and his fundamental human rights.

Pakistan has not changed its policy of shielding and supporting non-state actors and its true face is visible for all to see.

It is also reflective of Islamabad's "duplicity" in tackling terrorism, they said and asked Pakistan to "walk the talk" on its assurances to the worldwide community over dismantling terror infrastructure and not allowing its soil to be used for terror acts. "And in case of Saeed, a designated terrorist, it also shows how Pakistan is hoodwinking the worldwide community on the issue of terrorism", a source said.

"It's because of Kashmir that India is after me, but all her efforts have been in vain and Allah has set me free". The case is at present pending before the International Court of Justice. The JuD chief also said that his release was the victory of truth and "a serious blow" to India's demands.
