LeT founder Hafiz Saeed spews venom on India in Lahore HC

July 11, 2014 16:28 IST

Just days after his organisation was declared a terror outfit by the US, Jamaat-ud-Dawah chief Hafiz Saeed, who orchestrated the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, addressed a seminar at the Lahore High Court spewing venom on India and America.

This is the second time that Saeed, who is the founder of banned terror organisation Laskar-e-Taiba, has addressed lawyers and others within the court premises this year.

In May, Saeed, who roams around freely in Pakistan despite being a designated terrorist, was invited as chief guest at the Lahore High Court Bar Association, one of the premier bar associations in Pakistan.

At that time, the decision was opposed by a section of the lawyers.

Saeed addressed the seminar at the Lahore High Court building organised by the Pakistan Justice Party, tightening its noose around the Lashkar-e-Tayiba, the US had last month added its affiliates, including the JuD to its list of designated terror organisations and slapped sanctions against two Pakistan-based LeT leaders.

The US State Department has amended Lashkar-e-Tayiba's designations to add its aliases: Jamaat-ud-Dawa, Al-Anfal Trust, Tehrik-e-Hurmat-e-Rasool and Tehrik-e-Tahafuz Qibla Awwal, an official statement had said.
