US express concern over Hafiz Saeed's public appearances

WASHINGTON: The US State Department has raised concerns about Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed’s public appearances, including at the Difa-e-Pakistan Council (DPC) rally held in Karachi earlier this week.

The State Department issued a brief press release on Thursday, In response to a question submitted earlier in the week, which said that, “Lashkar-e-Taiba and its front group Jamaatud Dawa, is internationally sanctioned because of its associations with al Qaeda.  We have and continue to urge the Government of Pakistan to uphold its obligations in accordance with UN Security Council Resolution 1267/1989.”

The release further stated that the UN resolution “calls for all countries to freeze assets of sanctioned groups, prevent the transfer of arms to them, and prevent sanctioned individuals from entering or transiting their territories.”

JuD has been functioning in the country as a religious and charity organisation. Post Mumbai attacks in 2008, the organisation was declared a terrorist organisation by the West, UN and India.

Talking to Express News, Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) senior leader Liaquat Baloch said that the DPC opposed the sanctions. He said that certain organisations, which were a part of the council, had been wrongly banned by a dictator, hinting at former President Pervez Musharraf.

Baloch justified his claim by saying the if a certain exile agreement – with former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif – and the NRO by the same dictator had been declared illegal, why should this ban be considered valid.

    This is going to get interesting. Both Hafiz Saeed and Gen. Pasha have been summoned by the US courts in connection with the Mumbai attacks. Establishment formed and promoted Difa-e-Pakistan as a pressure group to somehow avoid their appearance in US courts. But Difa-e-Pakistan is growing out of control of the Establishment and Hamid Gul is openly criticizing the Army.

    Lets be honest ‘liberals’ and do away with the practice of ‘selective amnesia’. Look at Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan and then there is Iran. Do not see the darker clouds developing over the regionbecause of Us presence; the mental and physical effects on innocent people at the receiving end of drone strikes; the effect of depleted uranium in the region. Of course you cannot, becasue most of you ‘liberals’ do not live in the area.

    Which two countries? One of them was attacked by official support of our military in exchange for dollars. The same military which allegedly supports these organisations. Something is not right here.

    btw the other country was attacked with the help of our lords Saudi Arabia and other gulf states. May be Hafiz Saeed should direct his anger rat them instead of gaining their support.

    Lastly how is Hafis Saeed a Punjabi more concerned for Kashmiris, Afghans and Iraqis than Kashmiris, Afghans and Iraqis themselves? This is just a money making scheme in the name of Jihad. Btw most of those blowing up bombs in the west are also Punjabis; not Iraqis or Afghanis. Something to think about.

    If Hafiz Sayeed has any distant connection to 26/11 attacks then he should be taken to task by Pakistan. But no watertight evidences were found against him which is a must for prosecution in Pakistan’s unbiased judicial system. Whatever be his role in anti-US activities, he has made a great contribution to welfare in Pakistan in his capacity as the leader of a well-known religious and charity organization. Thousands of disillusioned youth have found good employment and a motivation in life through his devotional work. I have heard that Yemen, Suadi Arabia, Nigeria, Afghanistan and Congo are outsourcing many valuable job assignments to his multinational venture.

    DPC iz funding by itself World Imperial likely they funded Taliban during Cold War. Through funding DPC, Imperialist World want to show Pakistan az ‘Mullah’istaan’ in d world so that they can get feedback to attack the country in legal and human rights. Cold War is running now but its character’s changed. This Cold War is for implementation of ‘New World Order’ and against the Socialism due to failure of Capitalism as it failed to catch hunger.

    As a recipient of more than $60 billion in aid from the USA since the inception of Pakistan, I think the U.S. is justified in expressing concern over this shady character being seen in public.

    @Adil: BTW here’s a link from Times of India.The news is same but one can esily see the amount of abusive comments over there without any proper management and moderation. I guess Shahid Afridi was damn right about Indian media.
    Mr. Adil, we enjoy freedom of speech in India unlike your country where people like Taseer are killed with impunity and free thinkers like Hasan Nisar are routinely labeled Indian agents.
    There are people who misuse that freedom by posting hateful content but that does not mean we should give up on individuals’ rights.

    Sincerely!

    @Ubaid: Look at your history text books and you will see what fantasy really means. A nation and whole generation created and based on lies, deception, hatred and high inferiority complex will eventually fail. All others have just to wait and watch until you become the very reason for your own demise.

    “How about US granting citizenship to Shakeel Afridi, who is committed a crime in Pakistan?”
    Pakistani government, the army and the ISI have been vehemently maintaining that they had no role in hiding and aiding Bin Laden in Pakistan.

    So, how is it a crime for someone to tell the Americans that a most wanted person they had been seeking has been hiding in a certain place? I would agree with you that it would be a “crime” if it was the official stated policy of the Pakistani government to provide hiding place to Osama.Recommend

    You are right on your stance here but did any Pakistani say you ever to respect and love our artists?
    And as far as you said “we hate your support to terrorism which creates problems for the other countries”.Would you like to explain here that Indian brutal and cruel forces are killing innocent Kashmiris in Indian Occupied Kashmir and spreading state and military terrorism in Indian Occupied Kashmir.What about all this!!!!!!!
    In the near past some Hindus burnt a church.What about all this!!!!!
    Extremist Hindus martyred Babri mosque.What about all this!!!!!!
    Samjhota Express was burnt by extremist Hindus in which most of the innocent muslims were burnt.What about all this!!!!!!!!
