Jamat-ud-Dawa Chief Hafiz Saeed on Saturday called for avenging the loss suffered on Bangladesh with India’s Kashmir.
Hafiz Saeed said this while addressing a gathering in Pakistan’s Lahore city. The JuD head, who carries a bounty of USD 10 million announced by the US for his role in terror activities, has been under detention since January this year and was recently released by Lahore High Court.
Saeed was declared a global terrorist by the US and the UN over his alleged role in the attack.
Mashriqi Pakistan (East Pakistan) ka badla lena hai toh, Kashmir se intequam ka rasta ban raha hai, nikal raha hai, chal raha hai aur Inshallah yeh tehreek jaari hai, isne bahut aage jana hai: Jammat-ud-Dawah's Chief Hafiz Saeed in Lahore, Pakistan pic.twitter.com/BK6UxKbCTk— ANI (@ANI) December 16, 2017
On December 3, Hafiz Saeed confirmed that his organisation Jammat-ud-Dawah will contest the 2018 general elections in Pakistan under the banner of the Milli Muslim League, which is yet to be registered with the Election Commission.
Hafiz Saeed's lash out comes at a day when Indian Army is celebrating 'Vijay Diwas,' as it was on December 16, 1971 the army of Pakistan under the command of General Niyazi had to make a public surrender to the Indian army.
