Hafiz Saeed's Release Reaffirms One's Belief in "Dog's Tail" Proverb

  • Hafiz Saeed mastermind of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks

Saeed may walk out free if the government does not detain him in any other case. His freedom had also infuriated Pakistan's arch foe, India. Saeed is all set to be released from house arrest after the expiry of the detention order on Thursday.

However, the board rejected the extension plea and ordered the release of Saeed.

Despite U.S. sanctions on Saeed, the cleric has been living freely in Pakistan and delivering anti-U.S. speeches.

Saeed was put under house arrest after Mumbai terror attacks in November 2008 but he was freed by court in 2009.

PTI, NEW DELHI: India today expressed outrage over the imminent release of Mumbai terror attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed from house arrest, calling it an attempt by Pakistan to mainstream proscribed terrorists and a reflection of its continuing support to non-state actors.

The US had announced a bounty of $10 million for the banned JuD leader for his involvement in terror activities.

The US is aware of media reports that a Pakistani court ordered the release of Lashkar-e-Taiba leader from house arrest, a state department spokesperson told PTI when asked about the decision of the Judicial Review Board of Punjab province which refused to extend his detention.

Saeed said to the Guardian: "I am fighting for the cause of Kashmir, which is why India is after me". He used the release order to buttress his claims of "innocence".

Sources revealed that the home department in the would press more charges on Hafiz Saeed to keep him in detention.

For decades, Pakistan has cast a benign eye on groups like Lashkar-e-Taiba - which is perceived as an asset because its attacks target Indian soldiers in Kashmir - even as the government battles jihadist groups like the Pakistani Taliban that directly threaten the country.

"The government is ordered to release JuD chief Hafiz Saeed if he is not wanted in any other case", said the Pakistani board which was headed by Justice Abdul Sami Khan. Saeed is the mastermind of the 2008 Mumbai attacks that killed 166 people.

"His release confirms once again the lack of seriousness on the part of Pakistani government in bringing to justice perpetrators of heinous acts of terrorism, including by individuals and entities designated by the United Nations".
