Lahore: Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed has described the United States as biggest terrorist in the world while addressing a Friday Sermon at the Markaz Al Qadsiya here.
He also criticised the politicians of Pakistan, blaming them for obeying the orders of America and other Western countries.
“Pakistan is facilitating the US, who is the biggest terrorist of the world and involved in killing lakhs of people every year. Now demanding arrest of facilitators of terrorists,” said Saeed, the founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), who has been designated as a terrorist by the United Nations and has a USD 10 million bounty on him since 2012.
He added, “Pakistan is facilitating the US to launch drones attacks from Pakistan to kill people in Afghanistan. Rulers of Pakistan are silent assuming that America is pleased. The US is putting the blame of its defeat in Afghanistan on Pakistan and allegedly grabbing USD 33 billion. Neither the Afghan Taliban and nor the Afghan Mujahideen are responsible for the defeat of US. In Qatar, they (US) opened an office and asked the Taliban to settle their issues”.
Mumbai terror attack mastermind Saeed, also alleged that the U.S. has plotted against his charities and that is why Islamabad has been acting against them.
Saeed said, “Now issued an order to seize assets of JuD i.e. to take control of Masjid (mosques), Madrasas (religious schools) and educational institutes as well as ambulances of JuD. America wishes not to see JuD’s name in Pakistan.”
Days before the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) meeting in Paris, Pakistan had amended the anti-terror legislation through a presidential ordinance to include all UN-listed individuals and groups in the national listings of proscribed outfits and persons.
Saeed said, “Those who went Paris to attend the FATF’s meeting stated that they have seized all assets of JuD and requested FATF not to enter name of Pakistan into their grey list. They admitted of obeying instructions of their bosses (the West) and pleaded them to release aid for Pakistan.”
Showing his discontent over Islamabad’s stand at FATF meeting Saeed also blamed India for pressuring Pakistan to act against his organisation.
He said, “We must have openly conveyed in FATF meeting that JuD is not a terrorist organisation and it has been working for freedom of Kashmiris who are being subjected to torture and innocent children are being made blind. JuD is raising voice for rights of Kashmiris.”
He even asked Pakistan to keep distance from Turkey and China. “Urged Pakistani rulers to stop slavery of infidels as well as stop seeking help from Turkey and China. No one will help you and only Allah will help you. Now they are deciding about future of JuD. All the enemies of Allah are enemies of Pakistan. Jews, Christians, Americans and Hindus are our enemies”.
Pakistan claims to have banned the offices and charities of Jamaat-ud-Dawah, but they were found working openly under the patronage of security forces.
Terrorists like Hafiz Saeed, who openly holds rallies and meetings across Pakistan, enjoys the full support of the army and intelligence agencies, including ISI and military intelligence. (ANI)
