Days after External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj visited Pakistan, Jamaat-ud-Dawah chief Hafiz Saeed has dared India to prove his involvement in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.
According to a video posted on his Twitter account, Saeed is seen saying, “Our government remained silent, but let me respond to Sushma. It’s been seven years but they could not prove who was behind the Mumbai attacks and Insha Allah (if Allah wills it) they will never be able to prove it until eternity.”
“India has failed to provide any evidence of Mumbai attacks, while on the other hand Modi has confessed for worst terrorism of #1971.”
Saeed’s statement comes after India was assured of steps being taken to expedite the early conclusion of 26/11 Mumbai trial, after Swaraj visited Pakistan last week.
He also slammed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for holding a meeting with his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi in Paris, saying it has hurt the sentiments of ‘Kashmiri Muslims’.
“Nawaz Sharif should not have met with Narendra Modi and exchanged smiles with him in Paris. It has hurt the sentiments of the Kashmiri Muslims,” Saeed said at a seminar titled ‘Kashmir Issue and Rise of Hindu Extremism in India’ at the Lahore high court on December 2 organised by the Pakistan Justice Party.
Saeed founded the LeT whose operatives carried out the 2008 Mumbai attack that killed 166 people.
