Today’s top trend in Pakistan was “Hafiz Saeed” following the US announcing a $10 million bounty on the founder of banned group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).
Comments by local Twitter users were mixed, with some lauding the bounty, while others pointed out issues with the announcement, including questioning the timing of this decision in relation to Pak-US ties and NATO supply routes.
Humor and sarcasm captured the bounty trend, with many jokes going viral online. Here is a collection of just a few.
Why do doctors and professors always get into trouble? Dr Ghulam Nabi Fai, Dr Aafia Siddiqui, Brofessor Hafiz Saeed, Dr AQ Khan ....

Hafiz Saeed is somewhere in Pakistan. . That's a clue... So now does that make me eligible for $10 million award?

WHAT?! There's a US$10mil bounty on Hafiz Saeed’s head? But the man roams the country, freely! I call dibs on bounty-monies. Whom do I tell?

If India had announced the bounty, Hafiz Saeed would have surrendered, got 51 crores, would have given 21 crores in bribe, and escaped.
Hafiz Saeed promises to ball a no-ball for 10 million dollars.

Dear US State Department, hope you're aware that Hafiz Saeed's home in Lahore is guarded by policemen. #bounty #fail

The dude with the best chance of killing Hafiz Saeed is probably his mehndi supplier
