United States sharpens criticism of Pakistan over alleged terror leader

The US and the United Nations classify Saeed's JuD as a terrorist group and it is alleged to be a front organization for LeT, whose attack on Mumbai led to the death of 166 Indians and foreigners.

Meanwhile, in New Delhi, Ministry of Home Affairs said on Friday that Saeed's release and his comments on Kashmir before November 26 anniversary of Mumbai terror attacks were nothing but re-articulation of the agenda of terrorists who have "thrived" across the border.

U.S. administration has expressed "deep concern" on the release of designated terrorist: Lashkar-e-Taiba chief and founder of Jamaat-ud-Dawah Hafiz Saeed by Pakistani authorities and asked Islamabad to ensure his re-arrest and slap charge for his crimes.

Hafiz Saeed was released from 11 months of house arrest in Lahore on Friday, following a court order.

Mumbai mastermind and Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed has been released from house arrest in.

"If Pakistan does not take action to lawfully detain Saeed and charge him for his crimes, its inaction will have repercussions for bilateral relations and for Pakistan's global reputation", it added. The mastermind of the 26/11 attacks on Mumbai was under detention since January but released on Friday after a directive from the judicial review board of Pakistan's Punjab Province.

Warner Bros Moves Wonder Woman 2 Release Date
Ratner is yet another name that's been added to the disgustingly long list of alleged sexual harassers and abusers in Hollywood. The actor has publicly expressed she plans to return for the Wonder Woman sequel, but no announced deal has been reported.

The Dawn report says that Hafiz Saeed accused India of "funding and fueling terrorism and extremism in Pakistan" and claimed that evidences were available to substantiate this.

Reminding Islamabad that the USA had specially designated Saeed as a "global terrorist" way back in May 2008, Nauert also pointed out that the LeT chief was separately designated by the United Nations in December the same year following the Mumbai attacks that killed 166 people, including six Americans. We've given them billions and billions of dollars, and what did we get?

Saeed, who carries a $10 million bounty announced by the USA for his role in terror activities, made the comment to supporters gathered outside his Lahore residence. India and the U.S. said there was sufficient evidence, though this was something prosecutors in Pakistan denied.

Saeed has repeatedly denied involvement but had previously been detained twice briefly following the attacks. He heads Islamic charity Jamaat-ud-Dawa, which the United States says is a front for Lashkar-e-Taiba. His situation under house arrest is not irksome; Mr Saeed has a large property in Lahore and is protected not only by his own armed guards but by armed police officers.

After his latest release from house arrest, Mr Saeed attacked recently ousted prime minster Nawaz Sharif as a "traitor" for his efforts to seek peace with India. That came about after Pakistani military's purported rescue of American hostage Caitlan Coleman and her family after five years of Taliban captivity.
