Hafiz Saeed's son-in-law dares India

Hafiz Saeed's son-in-law dares India

"I am the greatest supporter of LeT and I know they [LeT and JuD] are fond of me", he said.

Former Pakistani strongman Pervez Musharraf's declaration that he was always a fan of the Lashkar-e-Taiba, the terrorist lapdog of the Inter-Services Intelligence, is perhaps a desperate last-ditch effort by a has-been dictator to regain some credibility and power. The world, including the United Nations, was observing culpable silence over India's use of banned weapons, he said and urged the Pakistan government to come out of its slumber and end its apathy on this crucial issue and raise its voice at global forums. "America has asked for Hafiz Saeed's re-arrest only because of pressure from India", Waleed told Hindustan Times. When asked if he "liked" JuD chief Hafiz Seed too, Musharraf said, "Yes and I have met with him".

Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has openly endorsed terrorism as state policy with his remarks on Lashkar-e-Taiba and Hafiz Saeed, Union Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore said on Wednesday.

He concluded by saying that India has always levelled baseless allegations against Pakistan and criticised India for using force against Kashmiris, adding that the recent attacks were being carried out at the command of Modi's government.


The US had also branded him a terrorist and put a Dollars 10 million bounty on his head after the 2008 Mumbai terror attack.

Gen Musharraf during an interview to a Pakistan-based news channel had said that he was the biggest supporter of LeT. Musharraf claimed Saeed was not involved in the Mumbai terror attack in 2008 because Saeed "himself denied the charges" of being the attacks' mastermind. Also, the United States also assigned Hafiz Saed as a global terrorist and announced a reward of $10 million for information leading to his arrest and conviction.

Over 160 people died in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.

The LeT co-founder was recently released from house arrest after a Pakistan court ordered his release a few days ago. He said, "I feel sad that a man of his integrity, who has been the chief of the Pakistan Army as well as the President, has praised something like this".
