It Is High Time for the Elimination of Hafiz Saeed

[It doesn”t matter whether Hafiz Saeed actually visited the Line of Control or not, since he had already met face-to-face with militant leaders from the Kashmiri Hurriyat delegation, along with his militant counterpart, Syed Salahuddin (SEE:  Lashkar e-Taiba Leader Hopes To Revive Jihad In Kashmir After US Leaves Afghanistan).  Whatever plans he made with them went back to Jammu and Kashmir with them.  He had just completed his trip to Lahore to share his militant wisdom with Talal Bugti, where deadly anti-Shia blasts exploded in his wake.  Hafiz Saeed is a terrorist and if he is allowed to pull Pakistan into another war with India, then the whole world will surely blame Pakistan for all of the grief that will follow.]

Lashkar-e-Taiba founder Hafiz Mohammad Saeed on claimed he had not visited areas along the Line of Control shortly before a recent spurt in violations of a ceasefire put in place in 2003.

“I did not visit the LoC where the Indian soldiers were killed,” Mr. Saeed, who now heads the Jamaat-ud-Dawah, said in a statement.

Expressing “surprise” at Indian Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde’s remarks that he had visited the LoC, Saeed claimed: “India has no proof about my presence there. The Indian claim is totally baseless.

“If India proves my presence at the LoC, then I am ready to accept its other allegations (against) me,” he said.

Saeed, blamed by New Delhi for masterminding the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks that killed 166 people, said those in favour of granting Most Favoured Nation-status to India should “see the real face of India”.
