U.S. rebukes Pakistan over release of alleged Mumbai attacks kingpin

Posted November 27, 2017

"The Pakistani government should make sure that he is arrested and charged for his crimes", the statement added.

"Hafiz Saeed was under house arrest on baseless allegations and jail officials came to his home last night and told him that he is now free", Yahya Mujahid said.

In the Mumbai terror attack 9 years ago, 166 innocent people had lost their lives.

Responding to the India's reaction, Pakistan's Foreign Ministry spokesperson Mohammad Faisal in a statement issued late Friday said that "Pakistan remains committed to the implementation of UNSC 1267 sanctions regime and has taken several steps in this regard".

Hafiz Saeed also targeted the Pak govt for "taking dictation from foreign masters".

Trump Responds to Egypt Terror Attack That Killed Over 230 People
US President Donald Trump: " Horrible and cowardly terrorist attack on innocent and defenseless worshipers in Egypt". Militants have killed hundreds of police and soldiers since fighting there intensified over the last three years.

Following the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack in which six American citizens were also killed the US Department of the Treasury designated Saeed as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist.

"Saeed's release, after Pakistan's failure to prosecute or charge him, sends a deeply troubling message about Pakistan's commitment to (combating) global terrorism and belies Pakistani claims that it will not provide sanctuary for terrorists on its soil", the White House said in a statement.

Earlier in the day, the LeT Chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed was released from house arrest, two days after the Lahore High Court (LHC) rejected the Punjab government's request to extend his detention.

"The Pakistani government now has an opportunity to demonstrate its seriousness in confronting all forms of terrorism, without distinction, by arresting and charging Hafiz Saeed for his crimes", Sanders said. "They play everyone, whether it's China or the terrorists or us".

It was in 2012 that the USA announced its offer of $10 million reward "for information that brings Saeed to justice", Nauert mentioned.

The game had a soft launch in Austalia late last month for testing purposes, and so far there's been no issues. The mobile iteration seems more similar to the mainline simulation entries than the spinoffs, thankfully.

"Ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has been punished for neglecting Kashmiris".

Jamaat-ud-Dawa, an Islamic charity run by Saeed, said his release was evidence of his innocence.

While some in Pakistan may wish to see Mr Saeed placed on trial, there is widespread suspicion among Indian and United States officials that he still retains close links to the country's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), which has been long blamed for sponsoring numerous cross-border attacks on Indian targets. He said he would ask India's government to raise the matter with the United Nations.

For years, the Pakistanis have been blamed by the USA for not doing enough in their counterterrorism efforts to end the Afghan war - the longest military engagement in America's history. And that harsh fact will likely mean the White House may huff and puff, but it can't afford to bring down the Pakistan-US bilateral alliance.
