Finally, Pakistan has decided to declare Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed as the most wanted terrorists under Anti-Terrorism Act, 1997 and has taken into custody by his arresting him in his house. Hafiz Saeed is the main brain behind the Mumbai attack, and this is the attack over which even Sanjay Dutt was convicted. Responding on this issue external affairs ministry spokesman Vikas Swarup stated that, “Hafiz Saeed is an international terrorist, the mastermind of the Mumbai terrorist attack and responsible for unleashing a wave of terror against Pakistan’s neighbors through LeT/JuD and their affiliates”.
This, though, looks very positive move of Pakistan to strengthen its relations with India, but still, a doubt still exists over this act. This act of house arresting looks like more of an act of protecting this terrorist from India and the international community, because Pakistan never punished him or hanged him to death as he was already proved as terrorist. In the situation where the complete world is blaming Pakistan for its terrorist activities, this move of Pakistan looks just like a drama to portray to the world that Pakistan is against terrorism.
Let’s wait and see how many days this beautiful drama continues…
Hope Pakistan also declares Masood Azar as the terrorist….
