Hafiz Saeed, the founder of banned group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), now carries a $10 million bounty on his head, The Times of India and Hindustan Times reported on Monday.

The US has announced the reward for the capture or any information leading to the capture of Saeed, making him one of the most wanted persons in the world.

In her maiden visit to India, US Undersecretary of State for political affairs Wendy Sherman told officials and a select audience at the Aspen Institute that apart from Saeed, his brother-in-law and co-founder of LeT Abdul Rehman Makki now carries a bounty of $2 million on his head.

LeT, and principally Saeed, are accused of planning and executing the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai. The US has also placed a bounty of $25 million on the head of Ayman al Zawahiri, the head of al Qaeda, after the killing of Osama bin Laden, making him the most wanted terrorist in the world. Saeed is now in the second tier as he will join the links of Mullah Omar and the al-Qaeda chiefs of Iran and Iraq, all of whom carry a reward of $10 million.

Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) spokeperson Yahya Mujahid was not willing to comment on the development despite repeated attempts to contact him.

Earlier, the US State Department had strongly urged Pakistan to prevent Hafiz Saeed from moving freely in the country, freeze the assets of the groups associated with him and stop allowing LeT from acquiring weapons.

“The US government is concerned about the recent public appearances of Jamaatud Dawa leader Hafiz Saeed, including at a recent rally in Karachi,” said the department’s spokesperson Victoria Nuland.

“Lashkar-e-Taiba, and its front group Jamaatud Dawa, are internationally sanctioned because of their 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,” she said. She recalled that this resolution called 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”.

    If true this is a very welcome and remarkable step. India has lot to learn. In last 20 years , India has only complained and whined about Daood Ibrahim and Hafeez Saeed, without being effective.

    I am expecting a retraction or rather a clarification from the US very soon. I dont expect them to a put a bounty on Hafiz Saeeds head when he has little or nothing to do with the US, even though they have put LeT and JuD as declared terrorist organizations.

    Long overdue move. But I don’t think it will make one iota of difference to Pakistan where Hafiz enjoys widespread support and patronage. But the noose is slowly closing on him. The cover of “charity” that he was using had been blown a long time ago.

    What about the two Israeli citizens – allegedly ‘tourists’ – who (according to Indian police records) used to check into hotels in India just months before 26/11 along with David Coleman Headley, who has been convicted of planning the attack? What’s the bounty on their head? Were they charged along with Headley? Kind of strange that some disgruntled Muslim terrorist would be touring India with Israeli friends while he’s simultaneously planning a terrorist attack. And what about the US DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency), who Headley was working for while traveling to India to plan the attacks – what did they know about what Headley was doing? Or for that matter, the other US government agency whose agents often criss-cross with DEA agents in the Af-Pak region (where Headley was working) – the CIA?
    Something tells me the State Department isn’t putting any bounties on the CIA guys any time soon (not least the Israelis).
    I would post links to the proof but whenever I’ve done for that 26/11 ET seems to have censored it for some reason, so I’m not even going to bother now.

    In practical terms, the Mr. Saeed has no choice but o go hiding. He can not be sure that no-one would be lured by the bounty and hand him over. So for one thing he will stop addressing DPC rallies (can’t do it while you are in hiding). Plus other DPC leaders who were spewing venom against US and threatening the government if it DARES to open the supply routes will think twice before doing so. The impact as far as India is concerned is that instead of being anti-US and anti-India, DPC rallies will become solely anti-India.

    So I think there is a clear point. They want to tell Pak parliament that if you decide to open up the routes don’ t worry about the DPC blokes.

    Somehow I feel that there will be no blow back on Pakistan. These jihadists are really cowards. They can only brainwash others and send them to their death and shall not resk their lives. Now that US has started to put a bounty on the heads of these leaders, they shall stop their terror activities. More importantly, the jihadists cannot do anything without the support from the powers behind them and these powers themselves shall be very guarded now. If I am correct the first signs would be the silence from Hamid Gul and the resolution from the Parliamentary Committee that would be conspicuously silent on Afia Sidiqi and Kashmir. I think that with this masterstroke, Obama has given a death blow to all terrorists in Pakistan. This is good for Pakistan.

    ‘LeT, and principally Saeed, are accused of planning and executing the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai’

    It would make sense to put a 10 million usd bounty on him if he was convicted !!!!!

    @M Ali Khan:
    So and what would have been your proposal to get Kashmirs independance in a weak Pakistani state after independance? You should go to India, Sir! India annexed Kashmir utilising their military superiority at that time because they wanted it, and still want it, and as long as the muslim kashmiris do not vote for independance or vote for staying with india we support their struggle. Principals. Stay focused on why Paksistan was made !

    1.Saeed had nothing to do with 26/11. It was perpetrated by Indians to malign Muslims and Pakistan.
    2. Saeed is dead already. Americans are trying to stage his capture/death.
    3. Saeed is a good Muslim. Anybody calling him a terrorist is a Hindu or a Jew agent.

    In 1947 countless people (from both religion) died. Its in everyone interest to forget that incidence, and live to make the life of all people on the earth VERY PROGRESSIVE. Those, who follow any line of action to Kill innocent people of any country / religion, they just exploit and abuse their religion and try to gather support in their favour in the name of religion or country. Such people are dangerous for society, not only for outside country, but for the same country, where they live.
    Stop cursing India or US for their fight against Terrorism, As Terrorists have no religion and they belong to no country.
    Do not support any person or organization of person, who creates hate among people or Kill innocent people of any country.

Yes he is blamed for attacks in India (but those are still blames) but that matter should be resolved between India and Pakistan. India can take this matter to UN but who asks USA to jump in let alone announcing head money??? According to which international law??

    USA is more worried about Syria than Kashmir or Palestine. With dual policies around the world, I don’t blame people for their hatred for USA.

    Not any one else. They are all simple person and American must understand one thing
    very clearly by threating or showing power is not the solution of any thing. The solution is
    only by making co-operation with Taliban. If we make Atomic Bomb restrictions are imposed

    @PRAVEEN ANEJA:
    Dear Praveen Aneja,
    You are half right but obviously have not been keeping up with the body counts. The U.S./NATO combo have killed several million innocent people in the last ten years alone. Unfortunately, the popular press, who get most of their information from Reuters and A.P. usually relate an account of the Taliban, and others, hit list, and do not make public the horrendous Western hit list. It would be of enormous benefit to the world if the various idiots from the West started to seriously talk peace and downed weapons, but if the last ten years are an example they will not do so any time soon. A further point to consider is that we are constantly exposed to Western propaganda, and it is very difficult to make a rational decision based upon the information we receive. The trouble with propaganda is that although there is usually an element of truth in it, it is designed to obscure what is actually happening. However, many people who are subjected to it think they are hearing the truth.

    @Dr.A.K.Tewari:
    I think it is becoming very obvious to any clear minded Islamist that the Western motives are absolute world domination in the financial area and World Government. The only way this can be brought about initially is by military domination, and the excuse for invading a country is to accuse that country of doing something naughty. Thus, they create a so called terrorist group, or accuse them of having weapons of mass destruction, or anything that comes of the top of their head. It does not really matter what the accusation is. The Western world will think of something. I am surprised that the South Asia/Middle East countries have not woken up to it. After all the West have been invading and pillaging the area for three hundred years now with Britain originally being the prime mover. Unfortunately, some people never learn.
