KARACHI: Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed has said that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has become the biggest non-state actor in Pakistan. Saeed was talking to the media after a meeting with Jamiat-e-Ulema-e-Pakistan (JUP) chief Sahibzada Abul Khair Muhammad Zubair in Hyderabad on Monday.
"Nawaz has been disqualified by the apex court. After his disqualification he shouldn't engage in politics," he said. Saeed said he has been cautioning the Pakistani authorities for many years about India's intention to block or reduce river water supply to Pakistan.

On Saturday, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Mondi inaugurated the power plant project on Kishanganga [Neelum] River, which also includes a dam. "Now everyone in the country is saying that India will stop Pakistan's water, but I feel sad that the people in the saddle preferred to pursue their personal friendships with Indians [over such issues]," said Saeed.
The JuD chief said Kashmiri people are looking towards Pakistan for help. He pointed to the intervention of the global powers in delay over resolution of the Kashmir dispute. He contended that the enemies of Pakistan are attacking the country's integrity and emphasised on unity among the religious parties.
Zubair accused Nawaz of trying to tamper with the Khatm-e-Nabuwwat law.
