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

Hafiz Saeed

The Pakistan government has reportedly told a judicial body that the country could face worldwide sanctions if Jamaat leader Hafiz Sayeed is released from house arrest.

Saeed's release may also coincide with the anniversary of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks in which at least 166 people were killed.

In its statement, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said, "We have seen reports on the release of the leader of banned terrorist organisation Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) and internationally proscribed terrorist Hafiz Saeed from house arrest by Pakistan".

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.

The Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief will be freed on the midnight of November 24 after the expiry of the house arrest order.

Saeed told the media on Wednesday that an end to his detention was tantamount to a victory of truth and called the decision "a serious blow" to India's demands that he be kept in custody and punished for the 2008 massacre. A Pakistani court has ordered his release.

The Judicial Review Board of Punjab province comprising judges of the Lahore High Court had unanimously ordered Saeed's release on the completion of his 30-day house arrest.

"But at no point was the government able to provide any actual evidence for these charges, despite the court giving it many chances to do so", Mr. Awan said.

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

In an interview to the New York Times, JuD's information secretary, Nadeem Awan said, "We are overjoyed to announce that after waiting for 10 long months, our chief will finally be free".

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. India accused Pakistan of sponsoring the attacks through the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), which Saeed had founded in the 1990s.
