48 hours before the 26/11anniversary of the 2008 Mumbai attacks, Pakistan set free the instigator of the attack and Jamaat ud Daawa leader Hafiz Saeed, early on Thursday evening. The banned Jamaat- ud-Dawah head, who carries a bounty of $10 million announced by the USA for his role in terror activities, was under detention since January.
This is extraordinary for someone whose outfit is indubitably responsible for the 2008 terrorist attacks on Mumbai, which killed at least 166 persons.
He even aired a video message shortly after his release, claiming that India's allegation in opposition to him was "false".
Analyst and retired general Talat Masood told AFP that Saeed is given special treatment by the government "because they think that his organization was supportive in Kashmir", the disputed Himalayan territory over which India and Pakistan have fought two of their three wars.
India has also claimed to have proof that "official agencies" in Pakistan were involved in the planning, charges Islamabad vehemently denies. The Ministry of External Affairs said this confirms the "lack of seriousness" on Pakistan's part in bringing terrorists to justice and its nefarious designs to shield and support non-state actors.
The IB says that with him being released and the ISI trying to push more terrorists before the winter, a high state of alert needs to be maintained.
India Outraged at Release of Hafiz Saeed
He said after a long deliberation by the officials concerned it has been chose to follow the review boards decision. "I don't care", Saeed said trigerring a huge applause from the gathering.
"How will the PML-N government handle the foreign pressure to again detain Saeed is to be seen", they said.
As regards the 26/11 attacks on Mumbai, Pakistan has stonewalled every Indian effort - on the administrative and judicial plane - to have the perpetrators and their mentors brought to justice on the plea of sufficient evidence not being available to satisfy the Pakistani courts, which of course heeds only the ISI and the Pakistani military.
Pakistan officially banned the Lashkar-e-Taiba in 2002. "This is victory of Pakistan's freedom and God willing Kashmir will also be freed because I'm fighting Kashmir's case", Saeed added. But in this time his outfit has been allowed to set up a political party to enable it to contest elections.
