A day after FATF sealed Pakistan in the grey list of terror funding countries, Mumbai terror attack mastermind and Jama'at-ud-Da'wah (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed on Saturday alleged that the United States and other external forces plotting against him and his group for their ‘patriotic work’.

"We united Pakistan against America, that is why the US administration is not willing to tolerate the JuD's effective role in the country," Saeed said in a statement.

The $ 10 billion bounty terrorist further said, “If Pakistan keeps surrendering to demands of the US, in no time we will be forced to roll-back our nuclear programs.”

Saeed earlier this year had announced that his organisation JuD would contest the 2018 general elections under the banner of the MML. Saeed is also the co-founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba.
