Tribune’s Gamechangers 2011: Hafiz Saeed

A permanent irritant in Pak-India ties.

Express January 13, 2012

For the leader of a group officially labeled a terrorist organisation by the United Nations Security Council, Hafiz Saeed certainly doesn’t look worried. Able to operate as chief of the Jamaatud Dawa in Pakistan, this darling of the religious right staged a significant show of strength this year at the "Difa-e-Pakistan conference" at the Minar-e-Pakistan in December, where he called for jihad against India for the first time since the Mumbai attack.

Quote: "As long as Indian troops do not leave Kashmir, the jihad will continue."
