Hafiz Saeed released from house arrest

He said the government's lawyers had repeatedly argued in court that Saeed was a threat to public safety and that his release could lead to worldwide penalties for Pakistan for not moving against terrorism financing. India pressurized Pakistan through thr United States.

A Pakistani court this week ordered the release of Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, 67, co-founder and leader of internationally designated terrorist organizations Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jama'at-ud-Da'wah.

Saeed's release would lead to strong criticism from India and the USA, official sources said. He was placed under house arrest once more in January this year following years of foreign pressure, prompting demonstrations in several Pakistani cities.

The MEA Spokesperson informed that external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj will be representing India at the SCO summit in Sochi on 30th November and 1st December.

On January 31, Saeed and his four aides - Abdullah Ubaid, Malik Zafar Iqbal, Abdul Rehman Abid and Qazi Kashif Hussain - were detained by the Punjab government for 90 days under Anti-Terrorism Act 1997 and the Fourth Schedule of Anti- Terrorism Act 1997.

Police guards were removed from his residence, where celebrated the end of his house arrest.

The Punjab government had asked for an extension to Saeed's detention but the request was turned down by the court and release orders were issued on Wednesday. "This is victory of Pakistan's freedom and God willing Kashmir will also be freed because I'm fighting Kashmir's case", Saeed added. He used the release order to support his claims of "innocence".

In a video message after the court decision, Saeed claimed that he was detained because of his associations with the disputed Kashmir region.

Punjab Assistant Advocate General Sattar Sahil said the government law officer had presented "some important evidence" to justify Saeed's detention, but all three members of the board unanimously rejected it and ordered his release.

"It's because of Kashmir that India is after me, but all her efforts have been in vain and Allah has set me free".

Saeed was declared a global terrorist by the U.S. and the United Nations after the Mumbai attack.

Describing Saeed as the "prime organiser" of the November 26, 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, Kumar said the banned Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) head is also responsible for unleashing numerous other terror attacks against Pakistan's neighbours. His release came after a three-judge panel dismissed the government's plea to continue his house arrest, which ended Thursday.
