LAHORE: Head of Jamaat-ud-Dawa, Hafiz Muhammad Saeed filed a petition in the Lahore High Court requesting the implementation of the parliamentary resolution against drone strikes on Tuesday.

Secretary Ministry of Interior and the Secretary Ministry of Foreign Affairs are the respondents in the petition. AK Dogar is the lawyer representing Jamat-ud-Dawa, which is alleged to be the charitable wing of the banned terrorist outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba.

The petition said that the government failed to implement the resolution which was passed in a joint session of National Assembly and Senate on May 14, 2011.

The petition asked that the “secret deals” with the US government should be made public, the citizens of the country should be protected from attacks by foreign forces and the transit facility for the Nato forces should be withdrawn.

Saeed said that he “along with thousands of his friends and followers have been painfully watching ever-increasing violation of sovereignty of Pakistan by the super power of the world”.

    Drone versus Drone. Let us now see which is more dangerous. Hafiz Saeed Sahib has pulled all carpets from beneath our top men in judiciary so now let us wait for the outcome, who wins must be frightening for our Judges.Recommend

    Everyone is showing his own existence even by doing something immaterial. He knows that filing a petition in High Court would do nothing but just to throw dust in the eyes of people. Tell Hafiz Saeed to go for Jihad and fight in Afghanistan.Recommend

    Why the Govt should make public its secret dealings with U,S .?

    Saeed said that he “along with
    thousands of his friends and followers
    have been painfully watching
    ever-increasing violation of
    sovereignty of Pakistan by the super
    power of the world”.

    BS. He is worried that he will become victim of one, very soon.Recommend

    The land of the pure allows hate preachers to roam freely while pretending that it is in the front line of the war against terror. Is there a limit to hypocrisy and double dealing practised by Paki establishment? Recommend

    Hafiz sahib, please also make your not-so-secret deal with the Pakistani state public. And while you’re at it, please make your secret deal with Lashkar-e-Taiba and other terrorist organizations public as well. Recommend
