All for Jihad: Hafiz Saeed slams journalists

Pakistani press has aligned with foreign intelligence agencies and is promoting anti-jihad sentiments among the youth


Express October 19, 2011

MULTAN: Speaking to local officials in Vehari and Multan, Jamatud Dawa leader Prof Hafiz Saeed blamed journalists of being part of a conspiracy against jihad. “The Pakistani press has aligned itself with foreign intelligence agencies and is promoting anti-jihad sentiments among the youth of this country,” he said. “Jihad is the only chance for Pakistan’s survival and the Muslim ummah needs to unite against foreign powers rather than turn on each other,” he added. Jamatud Dawa has been recruiting university and college students to join the organisation. The party organised over 120 forums in southern Punjab in the two years.

@csmann you are wrong, absolutely wrong. if u think tehreek-e-talkiban pakistan is doing jihad then you need to see with open eyes. that is a foreign funded organizaition built only to malign/harm muslims and jihad and blame pakistan. genuine jihad is going on in afghanistan, kashmir and palestine. go figure!
