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

Pakistan hasn't changed policy of shielding terrorists: India on Hafiz Saeed releaseā€

"I was detained due to pressure from India". Saeed was also seen cutting a cake and distributing candies among his supporters in celebration of his release.

In May 2008, the United States Department of the Treasury designated Saeed as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist under Executive Order 13224, the spokesperson said. Moreover with him overseeing the operations personally, there is a high-chance of an attack being carried out on a very large scale.

Saeed's release was expected to see Washington mount increasing pressure on Pakistan for its alleged support for militant groups, including the Taliban in Afghanistan. The alert also advises security forces to keep a close vigil along the border areas where the terrorists would be pushed.

In his declaration, he vowed that "I am fighting for Kashmir's independence". But we will and have to fight for the freedom of Kashmir.

"We responded to Pakistan's offer (of allowing Jadhav's wife to meet him) about 3-4 days ago".

A Judicial Review Board of Pakistan's Punjab province on Wednesday had issued orders to release Saeed, who had been under house arrest since January this year. "He is also responsible for unleashing numerous other terror attacks against Pakistan's neighbours".

Saeed's advocate A.K. Dogar earlier said the JuD leaders had been detained merely on the basis of allegations, without any substantial evidence against them, and called the call for extending the detention "illegal" and a "violation of basic rights".

The Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) founder and Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief is set to walk free on Thursday after being put under house arrest in January.

He said after a long deliberation by the officials concerned it has been chose to follow the review board's decision.

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

"I tell him he was ousted, because he committed treason against Pakistan by developing friendship with Modi, killers of thousands of Muslims", Saeed said.

His social media spokesman announced in a tweet that Hafiz Saeed is a free man.

The board refused to give further extension to the detention of Saeed's aides.

According to the rules, the government could detain a person for up to three months under different charges, but for extension, it needs approval from a judicial review board.
