Hafiz Saeed, who lived openly in Pakistan despite a $10 Million bounty on him, has been under house arrest since 30th January, 2017 in Pakistan and the Government’s move, amid pressure from the United States, is still said to be just a deception and that too a misleading one.
While Indian Government continues to say that there is enough evidence against the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) founder, Pakistan has still failed to extradite him because the State’s Foreign Ministry insists there is no ‘concrete’ evidence being released against him. However, the US, one of the World’s superpower has been continuously pressuring India’s neighbour to either hand him or hang him. Meanwhile, terror experts have hinted that Hafiz Saeed works closely with the Pakistani military and intelligence, and is further cushioned by many political establishments.
Hafiz Saeed enjoys a very long relation with India but for all the bad reasons as first in 2001, he was accused of Indian Parliament attack, then for 2006 Mumbai train bombings and then for the 26/11 Mumbai attacks, however, despite several notices being served to the Pakistani Government for his arrest, he somehow managed to get the release papers every time, lack of evidence being one of the biggest reasons.
It literally kills me from the inside that why Indian government always touts to have enough evidence on every matter as the same went down with the Demonetisation drive. They say, “we have proof against every accusation” but shy away when asked to release them.
Hafiz Saeed, on the other hand, pledges support for Hindus in Pakistan and acknowledges the death of Indian soldiers. For a common citizen like me, either Saeed is the right guy and India have nothing to prove the accusations or our government is so weak that it needs depend on the US, to catch a criminal like him, everytime.
Meanwhile, shortly after his house arrest in Pakistan, an interview dated 29th January has been uploaded by the interviewer himself, named Hamza Ali Abbasi on Youtube and Hafiz Saeed has clearly said that ‘if India gives up control of Jammu and Kashmir, he and his organisation would not have any quarrel with nation’.

The statement itself implies that Hafiz Saeed intends to disrupt India on the name of Jammu & Kashmir, and the only thing that I fear the most is, how many such attacks would Indian Government take to realise the fact that, Hafiz Saeed will remain a Godman for many and will roam around freely in Pakistan unless and until, proper evidences against him are released.
He is the man who openly challenged the United States of America by disclosing his location and it’s going to take more than just accusations to eradicate him!!
