LAHORE: Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed urged India to “leave Kashmir” while addressing a rally in Lahore to mark Kashmir Solidarity Day on Tuesday.
“No one could defeat the Muslims... If America had to run away, then India, you will have to leave Kashmir as well,” said Saeed amid chants of ‘al-jihad, al-jihad’.
Saeed expressed support for all Kashmiri leaders and prayed to God to protect and unite them.
“India’s army of 800,000 will lose... Kashmiris will get independence,” he said.
Pakistan observed Kashmir Solidarity Day on February 5 to denounce Indian rule in the disputed Himalayan region claimed in whole by both countries.
The day has been observed in Pakistan since 1990 to pay homage to Kashmiris and highlight the plight for their birth right to self-determination, promised to them by the international community under the resolutions of United Nations Security Council. The day was observed as a public holiday.
A minute of silence was observed throughout the country at 10am, while rallies, processions, seminars and photo exhibitions were also arranged by Pakistani missions abroad.
Rallies, demonstrations, human chains by men, women and children were seen at various points across the country as well as in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) and at the connecting points between Pakistan and AJK to express solidarity with the struggling Kashmiris despite heavy rain in the area.
People formed Human Chains at Kohalla‚ Azad Patan and Mangla bridges connecting Azad Kashmir with Pakistan in rainy weather. The main function of the day was joint session of AJK Legislative Assembly and AJK Council at Muzaffarabad.
Free ration-packages on behalf of the people and the government were distributed among Kashmiri refugees at their camps situated in Muzaffarabad‚ Bagh‚ Kotli and Rawalakot districts.

saeed hafiz is bad for pakistan he should be put in jail or hended to indians so we can get rid of him and our goverment should focus on betterment of poor nation and its people.
Hafeez Saeed and his Organisation is already banned by the international community and pakistan Govt is providing him security??Its rediculous.Neither his requests nor his demands will ever work.He need to read the accession instrument again signed be the then King who urged India to send Indian troops to Kashmir to end the atrocities by pakistan.He himself deliberately bring islam in this terror play and Muslims in India think that we hindu's are anti Muslim but thats not the case. Hafeez Saeed is gonno get what he deserves but not with the hands of US Navy Seals but with the hands of Indian Marcos soon.Our Govt will soon give surprise to pakistan as it is doing by completing pending death penalties. So pakistan be prepared.I think east coast will be good for Hafeez Saeed after his assassination.
Highly respected Hafiz Saeed Ahmed India is never never ever going to free/leave Kashmir thru peaceful means,begging and requests.cerebrate/find other options to free Kashmir from Indian occupation because now the time of peaceful means,requests and begging has gone very very far and now the time of practicability has come.So never cerebrate that India shall leave/free Kashmir thru peace talks and negotiations......
Has any Pakistani ever read the UNSC resolution on Kashmir issue? It says that Pakistan should withdraw its troops & all tribals out of Kashmir and asks India to maintain only small number of troops to maintain Law and order. Then and only then to create a election for plebiscite. But Pakistan cleverly like Israel moved Pakistani settlements into Occupied Kashmir which are now there for many generations. No, Pakistani will ever talk about this......LOL
Hafiz Saeed is most welcomed to India!! Please do come to India sir!! We are all waiting for you!!!
@Adnan: Lot's of holes in your argument of "Muslim rule" until 1857. 1674-1820 Hindu Maratha Empire. At it's zenith in 1758 Marathas controlled 2.8 million square kilometers of the Indian subcontinent which included much of modern day Pakistan too. Mughals paid tributes to the Marathas. 1799-1849 Sikh Empire. Ranjit Singh captured Lahore in 1799. Gujranwala was the capital of the Sikh empire from 1799-1802. Lahore was the capital of the Sikh empire from 1802-1849. So much of Muslim populated areas of modern day Pakistan were under Sikh rule. The religious demography of the Sikh Empire was Muslim (70%), Sikh (17%), Hindu (13%). You need to read some real history, not the manufactured Pakistani compliant history taught in Pakistan. How the rule of a few foreign Mughal families translates into "Muslim rule" in Pakistan is beyond me. Muslims of the subcontinent were an active part of rebellion against cruel foreign Mughal rule whether the rebellions were from Hindu Marathas or Sikhs. "Dulha Bhatti" was an Indian Punjabi Muslim who fought against foreign Mughal atrocities in Punjab and saved Punjabi girls from being raped by Mughal officials. We in Indian Punjab still sing about Dulha Bhatti's exploits on Lodhi day a Punjabi festival. I hope ET will allow this post in the interest of factual history.
World Women Initiative Against Rape: has urged all indian women to leave India.
SHINING INDIA can not even protect their own mothers, sisters, daughters from their own people gang raping them on a daily basis, how can they protect Indians from Hafiz Saeed??
For added effect, this statement also needs to be made by some Arab-look alike who has "Sayed" in his name so that all Pakistanis fall in line. Native ghazis dont have as much throw as an Arab.
Since 1211 till 1857 Muslims rule India 646 years Since 1857-1947 for 90 years British ruled India Since 1947 to date for 66 year Hindus are ruling what remained of India So for out of 800 years nearly 80% of the time Muslims remained undefeated. So my mind likes to go with what Mr. Saeed has stated. As they say in Cricket class is permanent form is temporary, so few defeats (as per you) of which 1965 and Kargil are certainly can be argued at length, if Muslims have lost few, they have always the tendency to come back. Know I hope that ET will not censor my submission
Yes you are correct we are living in last land we never ruled ourselves even muslim want to rule us we give preference to our indian muslims and not pakistan muslims.
Dear Pakistan gov't and army, as long as you allow lunatics (so called religious scholars) like these roam the streets of Lahore freely, no development or peace will come to Pakistan. I am a loyal Pakistani but also pragmatic. Set your own house in order and forget harping on Kashmir. What, you want to give them loadshedding and corrupt rulers too?? Worry about making the current Pakistan a better place to live with emphasis on energy production, eradication of militancy and education so there are no more Malalas tomorrow ok? Thank you.
@Hassan Jan: Yes clearly, we can see who is delusional. May I ask where is East Pakistan ?
Kashmiris will always be with Pakistan.
Indians are just delusional thinkers
@Gujesh: " Very soon Pakistanis will be leaving Pakistan." +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ CNN to ex PM Gilani: above 40 % Pakistanis want to leave the country... PM: So whats stopping them?
There are many poison factories in Pakistan. But it seems poison manufactured Messrs. Hafeez Saeed & Co. is of highest qualiy. Very soon Pakistanis will be leaving Pakistan.
Better celibrate Baluchistan day . A national holiday in this regard will help you in settimg your economy on track . Try it and stop day dreaming to snatch Kashmir from India by force .
Day Dreamer- Hafiz Saeed,
Come out of your dreams and live as a human being as god created and with his vision on human being. Another 1500 yrs or till the universe exists you will never get Kasmir for Pakis.
Only one day? Every day should be Kashmir Day, then Hafiz Saeed will urge India to leave every day. That would be 365 times more effective.
" Hafiz Saeed urges India to ‘leave Kashmir’" ++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Pehle Aaap. Pehle Aaap. (In Lucknawi andaaz)
@Truth detector: " ET put this headline so that Indians can gush over & have a field day." +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ And Sir what deters Pakistanis from doing the same? But looking at the feedback based on ' recommednations' you seem to be correct.
@jamshed kharian-pak: India by keeping its army on Pakistan's eastern border and US/NATO by keeping their armies on the western border have prevented movement of terrorists from Pakistan. Stuck within Pakistan, these terror groups shall blow up Pakistan from within. Look at the other news today how tribal ares have been taken over by these terror groups and the locals are fleeing the area. Pakistan army is not able to enter any part of Pakistan, be is the tribal areas, or Waziristan of Baluchistan or even Karachi.
"help all the independent movements over there!" There are no independent movements in India. They are only asking for more autonomy and powers within the Indian Constitution. No one is asking for a separate country like in Baluchistan.
Hafiz Saeed confined within Pakistan, is the best thing India can ask for. US reward has effectively confined him within Pakistan. He cannot even perform Haj or Umrah pilgrimage as he shall be handed over to US as soon as he steps out of Pakistan. Immediately after the court proceedings in USA an international arrest warrant shall be issued to arrest him and hand over to US.A.
What to talk of Pakistan army training the terror groups to attack India? Most of them have already been purchased by US. Look at the revelations being made by the retired generals.
@Adnan: Are you referring to balochistan?
Great Moujahid Hafiz Saeed urged India to leave Kashmir this is very logic annoncement there are brave peoples who wants to help kashmiri bros/sisters to br free the best thing is to do referendum in the past Pakistanis govts were hypocrits not to help enough kashmiris if Pakistan & Hindoustan could not find friendly sloution then kashmir be declaire full Pakistanis & helped officialy with Full Military Training & furniture with all kinds of Armements to the Liberation of kashmir one day we maust has to find a solution Pakistan just do what Hindoustan did to East Pakistan no more no less! help all the independents mouvements over there!
@dj: With 72 houris?
If Pakistanis are really serious of supporting their brothers in Kashmir, they should declare the 5th of every month as Kashmir day and carry on speeches all over Pakistan on these days. This way, instead of once a year, which people will soon forget, there is constant reminder every month about Indian atrocities on the Kashmiris. There should also be videos shown every month all over Pakistan about Indian atrocities. Hafeez Saeed should lead a million man march on the fifth of every month to keep the Kashimir passion alive.
@Khan: "Then why your every forien minster demands for him even without any substantail evidence against him."
Indian government wants the planners of 26/11 punished. No more and no less.
@Yasir Mian: Qadam Barhao??? His story will be like that Kasab's in Yarawadi Jail with "Qadam under the soil"....
@cautious: " I would also point out that there are a number of countries that have been successful in defeating Muslims – including Israel, India and the USA to name a few"
You forgot China (in Xinjiang).
If wishes were horses, the Pakistani army would ride one to Srinagar.
I 'urge' ET to add this line with such sort of poll: 'All Indians are requested not to bother to participate in this poll'
@Dr Priyanka: Then why your every forien minster demands for him even without any substantail evidence against him. To keep in a showcase??
@Baloch Insafian: no he is not. Poor guy that's how he earns his living!
@Yasir Mian: What is your army for if civilians led by Hafiz Saeed are supposed to reclaim Kashmir. Another thing- ask your army about what happened the last 3 times they tried to snatch Kashmir with force.
Looks like H.Saeed has a sinister plan up his sleeve if India does not comply with his request.
@Shhhh!: Your COAS came in winter at a time that there was an understanding with your army that no one would disturb the Loc during winter. At that time India trusted Pakistan to honor its promise and this why all soldiers had vacated their post during winter. So your COAS visited when there were no soldiers. Now India does not trust Pakistan and does not vacate posts during winter. Now Pakistan keeps begging India to vacate lists during winter especially after the guard sector tragedy with the Pakistani soldiers last April. but once bitten twice shy. Thus there was no bravery only lack of honour in crossing the LOC then and it has only hurt Pakistan now because the increased trust deficit hurts them more than India.
@Pessimist, "Btw, why is there a zebra crossing sign on that flag in the picture? Does JuD advocate road safety along with radical Islam? "
Man, you cracked me up with that comment. LOL. 100 recommendations to you!
@ahmad: Your army tried 3 times to take Kashmir with force. Failed 3 times. It tried to then use non state actors for that purpose and thousands of Indian civilians were killed and hundreds of thousands of Pandits were made homeless. Still it did not succeed in its goals. Speaking of which your army tried 4 times to reverse status quo on Siachen and 4 times it failed. Please know facts before you brag about your army snatching Kashmir. First let it establish writ of Pakistan on Fata then go from there.
and we urge hafeez saeed to quit terrorism ...or else he could be india's osama bin laden
India urge back Hafiz to leave from world itself
India urges Hafiz Sayeed to pull his head out of where the sun don't shine and go back to the hog farm...
@Vinayak:You say: "Jan 27th — Hafiz Saeed asks Shah Rukh Khan to stay in Pakistan Feb 5th — Hafiz Saeed urges India to ‘leave Kashmir’ It seems he thinks he is the home-minister of Pakistan."
I would add:
Jan 30 th, 2013 - Hafiz Saeed says in Khara Sach with Mubashir Luckman TV interview that "India is using Iran as weapon of war against Pakistan". These are his exact words. He calls Iran an enemy of Pakistan. Mubashir Luckman asked him to elaborate on this new claim that India is using Iran as a weapon of war against Pakistan and how Iran has become an enemy of Pakistan. Mubashir however, realized the sensitivity and took a break from the TV interview and moved on to another topic after the break. Hafiz Saeed will soon start (most definitely after US forces exit Afghanistan in 2014) a Shia/Sunni war in Pakistan and this is going to be on a scale never seen before. Never before, I have seen anyone in Pakistan calling Iran an enemy of Pakistan who is collaborating with India to attack Pakistan on a live TV interview.
It is indeed tragic that a leader of a well known terror organisation which has been banned by the UN is given permission to address a public gathering and given importance that of a national leader in Pakistan. It is ironic that Pakistan who is suffering immensely at the hands of terrorists and proclaims to be a victim of terrorism still continues to patronise them as if its existence depends upon them. Till such time the terror machinery considered good or bad is abandoned as well as eliminated by the state, unprecedented violence and killings would continue resulting in an anarchy in the whole country.
forget kashmir, take care of baluchistan before it is becoming bangladesh
@Adnan: Since 1211 till 1857 Muslims rule India 646 years Since 1857-1947 for 90 years British ruled India Since 1947 to date for 66 year Hindus are ruling what remained of India
On basis of your "form is temporary,class is permanent"...You're just analysing one year in the entire career of a player...
From 6000BC to 1211 A.D. HINDUS ruled India...You ruled for 646 years,we ruled for around 6000 years...Its just like a minor loss of form for a great batsman and then comes back with a bang...
Muslim rulers wiped out Pagans from Arabia,Buddhists from Afghanistan,Zoroastrians from Iran,but even after 600 yrs of ruling,Hindus are still a majority in India..Thats shows the resilience of Hindus...
Hafiz Saeed urges Sharukh Khan to leave India. Hafiz Saeed urges India to leave Kashmir. Hafiz Saeed urges Veena Malik to leave Ashmet.
Hafiz Saeed should try opening a consultation company.
First they want India to quit Kashmir. Then they will want Pakistan to quit Kashmir. Finally, they will want Kashmiris to quit Kashmir. WHEN WILL IT END!?
@ahmad: The way it tried 4 times before. wake up and stop dreaming.
Maybe Saeed should do more reading than talking - implying that American's had to run away from Muslims in Kashmir is laughable. I would also point out that there are a number of countries that have been successful in defeating Muslims - including Israel, India and the USA to name a few.
@David: What to listen?can you say something.
@David: Are you dumb.Post some nice comments just don't listen but express your views.Moderator is very friendly he publishes your comments.
We cant hear you properly due to the long distance...Could you please come to the Indian side of Kashmir and tell us...
We even have a room booked in Tihar jail with delicious mutton biriyani and ur next room neighbors will be Afzal Guru and Abu hamza
India urges pakistan to send hafiz saeed to india ;)
This lunatic needs to be committed to Mental Health Asylum at Agra at the earliest.

I think you should ask your grandfather, how his great grand father lived under muslim rule.
He will tell you that his great-grand father was a slave under muslim rule.
He will also tell you that his father was a slave under British rule.
He will also tell you that he was a slave under practical CIA rule.
He will also tell you that his son was under Saudi rule.
He will also tell you that you are under Chinese rule.
So much for muslim rule!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
@Adnan, yeah I agree with you fully like I agreed with my newly christian converted neighbor when he said they ruled us for so many years until 1947 :). Those mogal ppl came from Middle east and forced your forefather to convert to Muslim and now you are telling me tht you guys ruled India. How funny. PS: i HOPE tribune will put my comment with out fail/
If someone promises votes Sonia will sell Prianka Vadhra.
@Adnan: "People laughed at this sort of request made to USSR to leave Afghanistan… When they left the name ‘USSR’ left too. Atrocities done on any nation, group of people have always ended one day. Cannot give the time and date as only nature knows what is due tomorrow but it will happen."
You are comparing Oranges with Speaker-phones.
Dear sir, what's your IQ?
@Dr. Khasim Saheb: Hats off.
@ahmad: Ha ha then wht you are waiting for.. just come and take it we will be honored
dear Pakistani brothers forget Kashmir ,after some you may have to forget Balochistan ,Sindh and KPK then finally Pakistan.
Mr.Hafiz Saeed Ji, you want Kashmir ?? No problem. Congress will give it to you. Just promise us few minority votes in return and you will have your way. Its a promise. Infact you can have it before 2014, we have already started the process.
Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed urged Pakistan to “leave Balochistanr” while addressing a rally in Lahore to mark Balochistan Solidarity Day on Tuesday. Hats off Saeed saab.
we urge Hafiz Saeed to leave pakistan, please go else where and spread your venom, we have enough problems of our own, the way things are at present the over all situation regarding law and order, inflation, economy is far better in occupied Kashmir than in our beloved Pakistan, let them handle there own issues, please Hafiz sahib times have changed. We are more interested in welfare of Pakistan and Pakistanis.
Is anybody listening !!! Nobody..
@Singh: Since 1211 till 1857 Muslims rule India 646 years Since 1857-1947 for 90 years British ruled India Since 1947 to date for 66 year Hindus are ruling what remained of India So for out of 800 years nearly 80% of the time Muslims remained undefeated.

@Yasir Mian: " Qadam Barhao Hafiz Saeed, Qom tumharay sath hai." +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Qadam in the mouth disease!
@ahmad: " Or our army will take it by force….." +++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Like it was attempted at Kargil:)
@Shhhh!: " Your army is sleeping tight." ++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Well it can now be revealed that the Paki Army was issued LOUD Alarm clocks after the US Navy Seal invasion of Abbottabad. Some people can even hear the snores.
i hope pakistanis denounce this man's suggestion towards solving the kashmir issue...this will only breed hatred...indian administration will not sit back with folded hands in response to the violence he states so often that be unleashed on indians...indians will retaliate too...they wud use all their might and power in baluchistan...this way the only message the children of both the countries would learn wud be of hatred and bile... our destiny is in our own hands...dnt let such men decide wat must be done with it...
Qadam Barhao Hafiz Saeed, Qom tumharay sath hai.
“No one could defeat the Muslims… If America had to run away, then India, you will have to leave Kashmir as well,” said Saeed amid chants of ‘al-jihad, al-jihad’. Is that the reason why India has Kashmir since 65 years? If this is how you wage 'al-jihad' against India and Indians, Hafiz Saheb needs to know that we are still standing in one unit since 65 years while the Islamic Republic of Pakistan is now left with half its land..... Please continue your 'al-jihad' until it leads you to independant emerging countries of al-Baluchistan, al-Sindh and al-Waziristan or for that matter al-Pakhtunistan..... India shall not be discontented if that is what Pakistan is striving for.....
Dear Hafiz Saeed, I am a Pakistani and I urge you to mind your own business.
Have a heart. The man has to earn a living. He has no other "hunar".
@GrimmJow: People laughed at this sort of request made to USSR to leave Afghanistan... When they left the name 'USSR' left too. Atrocities done on any nation, group of people have always ended one day. Cannot give the time and date as only nature knows what is due tomorrow but it will happen.
“No one could defeat the Muslims… If America had to run away, then India, you will have to leave Kashmir as well,” said Saeed amid chants of ‘al-jihad, al-jihad’. Somebody need to remind him of 65, Surrender of 90 thousand in 1971 & recently Kargil, Please. ET I hope you will not censor it.
Lunatic Asylum of Lahore: Please help us find a lunatic aka last name Saeed as soon as possible.
You couldn't do anything when our cheif of army staff spent the whole night at kargil within your boundaries. Your army is sleeping tight.
Lets not disturb them by inviting Hafiz Saeed!
plz give a deadline hafiz saeed......u could learn a bit form zaid hamid :)
Your entire life Mr. Saeed you will spend in Pakistan.One day you and Dawood may face the law as Osama did.If you go out of Pakistan Interpol will catch you and extradite you to India.
Hafiz Saeed and veena malik both are brother and sisters they do any thing to be in media
As @Tony Singh suggested, India is highly amenable to Sir.Hafiz's request if he comes in person to India to negotiate India's withdrawal.
Or our army will take it by force.....
It seems he thinks he is the home-minister of Pakistan.
And we 'urge' you to leave Pakistan.
His coordinates please
hehehehehe ... hafiz saeed asking india to quit ... hehehehe
“No one could defeat the Muslims… If America had to run away, then India, you will have to leave Kashmir as well,” said Saeed
keep on dreaming neither Americans are leaving Afghanistan; they just reduce there military size just to reduce the cost there; they will be there for many more years.
India has no plan either so accept your defeat and read this editorial http://tribune.com.pk/story/502612/day-off-for-kashmir/
The sure way of dooming the Kashimir independence matter is by having militants and terrorists plead on behalf of Kashmir! Is Haif Saeed really the face of kashmiri independence movement? Is this not gross injustice to the Kashmiri people?!
nice joke. Pakistan should now start focusing on its western border the demarcation of which may be altered not very long from now.by allowing such clowns to speak up, pakistan is only damaging its reputation,
"...their birth right to self-determination, promised to them by the international community under the resolutions of United Nations Security Council. " Now, if UN Security Council passed those resolutions, shouldn't Pakistan/Hafiz Sayeed ask that body to come through on that promise and get them Kashmir? Don't waste that foul breath on India! Stop bugging India!
Even if there was a chance for India to follow such a request the fact it came from his mouth probably completely sabotages it. He must not actually care. He can't be so oblivious as to not know that.
Hafiz Saeed is a nightmare for the Indians We stand by Kashmiris in their struggle for Freedom..!
ET put this headline so that Indians can gush over & have a field day.
Someone please get Mr Saeed's IQ checked. I believe he needs medical attention judging by the kind of statements he has been making off late
Hehehehehe ... The joke of the year ... On so called Kashmir Day .... hehehe
There is no doubt about Hafiz Saeed Is the lone Person in our whole country who raises voice against Indian state terrorism in Kashmir and surely he Speaks of Whole Pakistan's Hearts words. We don't care what Lib Fascist think of Him. Do what u ppl always do. And let Hafiz Saeed do what he do best :) Allah ham sab ka hami-o-nasir ho :)
iam urging him to leave this earth and enjoy life after death than making problems on earth
Hafiz Saeed urges India to ‘leave Kashmir’
I guess now India has no other choice but to leave Kashmir, now that Mollana Saeed has spoken.
Btw, why is there a zebra crossing sign on that flag in the picture? Does JuD advocate road safety along with radical Islam?
Sure Sir, Please also mention the Date/Time by which this should be done?
This is disgusting - why have we given the issue of Kashmir to be handled by these people that the world call them terrorists.
" Hafiz Saeed urges India to ‘leave Kashmir’" +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Hafiz Bhai your urges dont seem to be working,...try begging....
keep dreaming hafiz saeed and i urge u to leave pakistan and step on indian soil if u have the courage........
We "urge" Hafeez Saeed to come to India and present his request in person for consideration
