Hafiz Saeed To Contest General Elections in Pakistan Next Year

Hafiz Saeed To Contest General Elections in Pakistan Next Year Hafiz Saeed announces to contest coming general elections

Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed has announced that his organisation Jamat-ud-Dawah would contest Pakistan's 2018 general elections under Milli Muslim League - a still-to-be-registered political front.

Saeed, who was declared a global terrorist by the U.S., said he will be contesting the elections as the candidate of Milli Muslim League.

The JuD chief, who carries a bounty of US$ 10 million announced by the USA for his role in terror activities, walked free on November 24 after the Pakistan government decided against detaining him further in any other case.

Saeed, who has a $10 million bounty on him by the U.S. state department since 2012 for his role in acts of terror, was set free last week after the Pakistan government decided against his home detention. India has repeatedly asked Pakistan to re-investigate the Mumbai terror attack case and also demanded trial of Saeed and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operations commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi in light of evidence it had provided to Islamabad. In the past, Saeed has backed PML (N) chief Nawaz Sharif. "We are here to stay in the political field".

He said India was lobbying internationally to "malign" the Kashmir cause and Pakistan's incumbent government had bowed down to appease New Delhi, reported The Express Tribune. I will gather the people from across the country for the cause of Kashmir.

The Mumbai terror attack mastermind's release was met with condemnation across the world, with the United States warning Pakistan of repercussions if Saeed is not immediately re-arrested and prosecuted. "I want to tell Pakistan that back channel diplomacy only caused harm to the Kashmir cause", Saeed alleged.He further said his detention in Pakistan and Hurriyat leaders in India was part of worldwide agenda.

Saeed was placed under house arrest for 10 months. India is angry over my release from the house detention. "I also dedicate 2018 for Kashmiris who are struggling for freedom", Saeed said while meeting a group of columnists at the Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) headquarters in Lahore's Chauburji.

Pakistan released Saeed from house arrest after 297 days, in a move criticised by India as well as the U.S., as Saeed has been designated a global terrorist by the United Nations for his role in the Mumbai terror attacks in 2008 that resulted in the death of 166 people.

According to Hafiz Saeed India had forced Nawaz Sharif government for his arrest after he dedicated 2017 for Kashmir struggle.

The JuD has been declared as a foreign terrorist organisation by the USA in June 2014.

India was outraged at Pakistan's decision - a move it sees at its neighbour's attempt at mainstreaming proscribed terrorists.
