Saeed Terms Linking Kasab to JuD Part of ‘Conspiracy’

Chief of banned Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) Hafiz Saeed, accused of having a role in last year’s Mumbai terror attacks, has claimed that the linking of lone survivor of attacks Amir Ajmal Kasab to his outfit is a part of a “conspiracy” against it.

Saeed, released from a house arrest by Lahor High Court after being detained in December 2008 following Mumbai terror attacks, made the aforementioned remarks while addressing a Friday prayer congregation at a mosque in Gujranwala in Pakistan’s Punjab province.

Claiming that the UN blacklisted the JuD at India’s request following the Mumbai terror attacks, he said that the linking of Kasab to JuD was a part of a “conspiracy” against the group. Needless to add, he claims JuD to be a charitable body.

He questioned India’s defence expenditure, arguing that New Delhi’s military budget was equivalent to Pakistan’s total annual budget. He also raised the bogey that Pakistan faced an “existential threat” from across the eastern border.

The JuD chief, also the founder of Lashkar-e-Toiba militant group, alleged that the Pentagon had a “secret agenda” to disintegrate Pakistan and the country’s current rulers had no capacity to defend it.

Pakistan’s rulers should desist from following former president Pervez Musharraf’s policies, he added.
