Tulsi Gabbard lashes out at Pakistan for freeing Hafiz Saeed

Pervez Musharraf says he is LeT’s ‘biggest supporter’ backs militant group’s actions in Kashmir

The terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba's chief Hafiz Saeed was named a global terrorist by the UN Security Council's Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee on December 10, 2008. He also said that he was always in favour of "action" in Jammu and Kashmir and "suppressing Indian Army in Kashmir".

India's Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has said that Saeed's release confirmed once again the lack of seriousness by the Pakistan government in bringing to justice perpetrators of terrorism, including individuals and entities designated by the UN. Pervez Musharraf said at that time he did not know much about Hafiz Saeed and the situation at that time was different.

Pervez Musharraf, the former army chief of Pakistan has said that he is the biggest supporter of Lashkar-e-Toiba and added that they like him too.

Mr Abdullah's father and NC president Farooq Abdullah also lashed out at Gen. Musharraf, who had earlier told ARY News that he was the "biggest supporter" of the LeT and its co-founder and the chief or amir of Jama'at-ud-Da'wah Hafiz Saeed.

The former president also categorically denied that LeT was involved in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks for which India blamed Pakistan.

Acknowledging the role of terror outfits like JuD and LeT are waging a "jihad" for the liberation of Kashmir from India, the former Pakistan president said, "Yes, they are involved in Kashmir and I support them".

The United States and the United Nations have classified JuD and LeT as the global terrorist groups.

The US had also branded him a terrorist and put a United States dollars 10 million bounty on his head after the 2008 Mumbai terror attack. "I'm sorry if the ex-President of Pakistan thinks the LeT was going to protect Islam".

A Lahore High Court had recently freed Hafiz Saeed from 10 months of house arrest after Islamabad failed to submit enough proof against him. "In Pakistan, we don't call him a terrorist", 73-year-old Musharraf said.

Saeed was placed under house arrest in January while Sharif was still prime minister, a move that drew praise from India, long furious at Saeed's continued freedom in Pakistan.
