Pakistan’s Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has recently said that he & his government can not take any action against Hafiz Saeed.
UN has designated Hafiz Saeed as a global terrorist and Saeed holds an amount of 10 million USD bounty on his head.
Hafiz Saeed is the mastermind for 26/11 Mumbai attacks in 2008.
Pakistani PM while speaking to a news channel in Pakistan said “There is no case against Hafiz Saeed Sahib in Pakistan. Action can be taken only if there’s a case against him.”
It’s interesting to note that Pakistan PM referred to the UN designated terrorist as ‘Sahib‘ which basically translates to ‘sir’ in English.
Hafiz when would be released will fight Elections under his own party Milli Muslim League.
Hafeez is the founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) a terrorist organisation in Pakistan, infamous for it’s cross border activities. Hafeez founded the organisation in 1986.
When LeT (Lashkar-e-Taiba) was banned in Pakistan, it’s political front JuD started taking over the LeT & it’s jobs.
JuD has been labelled LeT front by UN Security Council but Pakistan has still not banned JuD.
Hafiz is yet to register his political party with the Pak Election Commission.
