Saeed on Shinde's remarks: Anti-Pak propaganda exposed

January 21, 2013 17:51 IST
Mumbai attacks mastermind and Lashkar-e-Tayiba founder Hafiz Saeed on Monday sought to exploit Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde's jibe against the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and Bharatiya Janata Party saying Indian "propaganda" against Pakistani organisations of spreading terror now stood "exposed".

A day after Shinde accused the BJP and RSS of running terror camps and indulging in Hindu terror, he went to the extend of levelling an accusation that Indian organisations were "involved in all kinds of terrorism in Pakistan".

Saeed, for whom the United States has announced a $10 million bounty, told a press conference in Lahore that India always resorted to propaganda against Pakistani organisations but it now stood "exposed".

He claimed, "India tried to involve us in the Mumbai attacks but after a passage of five years, nothing has been established against us in the courts".

Saeed, who now heads the Jamaat-ud-Dawa, also made a ridiculous demand asking the Pakistan government to take steps to get India declared "a terrorist state" by the United Nations Security Council.
