Published

on

After being released from months of House Arrest, the Mumbai attack mastermind and Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed on Thursday said the fight for ‘Kashmir Cause’ will resume.

Carrying a bounty of $10 million announced by the US for his role in terror activities, the JuD head was set free after the Pakistan government decided against detaining him further in any case. He has been under detention since January this year.

“I was detained for 10 months only to stop my voice for Kashmir,” Hafiz Saeed told his supporters who gathered outside his residence to celebrate his release. The Judicial Review Board of Punjab province comprising judges of the Lahore High Court (LHC) had unanimously ordered Saeed’s release on the completion of his 30-day house arrest which expired tonight.

“I fight the case of Kashmiris. I will gather the people from across the country for the cause of Kashmir. And we will try to help Kashmiris get their destination of freedom.” Hafiz Saeed said he was detained when he announced a month of solidarity for Kashmiris this January. He used the release order to buttress his claims of “innocence”.

“I am very happy that none of the allegations against me proved as the three judges of the LHC ordered my release …India had leveled baseless allegations against me. The LHC’s review board decision has proved that I am innocent,” Hafiz Saeed said.

“Hafiz sahib received his release order from the jail officials. Now he is a free man,” Ahmad said. He said after his release Saeed thanked his supporters gathered outside his house.
“Saeed has been freed as the Punjab government decided not to detain him further in any other case,” a top official in the government told PTI.

According to Assistant Advocate General, Sattar Sahil, even the “some important evidence” presented by the Punjab government law officer was not enough for the three members of the board and they unanimously rejected and ordered his release.

On January 31, Saeed and his four aides – Abdullah Ubaid, Malik Zafar Iqbal, Abdul Rehman Abid and Qazi Kashif Hussain – were detained by the Punjab government for 90 days+ under Anti-Terrorism Act 1997 and the Fourth Schedule of Anti- Terrorism Act 1997.

Demanding a re-investigation in the Mumbai terror attack case, India has repeatedly asked Pakistan for a trial of Hafiz Saeed and LeT operations commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi in the light of the evidence it had provided to Islamabad.
