Hafiz Saeed detained for ‘spreading terrorism in the name of jihad’

Lashkar-e-Taiba chief Hafiz Saeed and his four aides have been detained by Pakistan for “spreading terrorism in the name of jihad”. Home Ministry of Pakistan has levelled charges against him and produced him before a judicial review board which was headed by Pakistan Supreme Court judge Ejaz Afzal Khan.

As he appeared before the court on Saturday, Hafiz Saeed, who was also the mastermind behind the Mumbai terror attack, said he had been detained by the Pakistan government to stop him from raising voice for Kashmiris.

Although, the ministry rejected his argument detaining Saeed and his aides on charges of “spreading terrorism in the name of jihad”. This move comes soon after the absence of Saeed and his aides before a review board was questioned by a division bench of Lahore High Court.

Notably, Saeed and his aides have contended that Pakistan detained them without any legal justification to please India and the United States. Yesterday, the Pakistan government admitted to the board that the government detained the JuD leaders “on the pressure of United Nations and international organisations”.

The board asked the ministry to submit a complete record regarding detention of the five men and asked the Attorney General of Pakistan to be present during the next hearing on May 15.
