Hafiz Saeed Vows To Oust Indian Forces From Jammu And Kashmir19 December 2011
Lahore: Leading a vitriolic attack against India, Jamat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed on Sunday vowed to continue jihad to oust Indian forces from Jammu and Kashmir. The 26-11 mastermind, who also happens to be the founder of banned outfit Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT), held yet another India-bashing rally in Pakistan. He also blasted Islamabad for holding dialogues with India and its handling of the Kashmir dispute. 'Some people are conspiring in Islamabad to stop and harm the Kashmiri freedom movement. They are in a dialogue process with India and have declared India a favourite country, an open market for them. Listen, God willing, we will not allow this resolution in parliament. The people of Pakistan do not want relations with India,' he said. Saeed did not stop at the India bashing. The rally was also dominated by a tirade against the United States. Attacking Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, Saeed criticised him for his relations with the US and NATO. He demanded that the Pakistani government end all contacts with the US. 'Mr Gilani, we are coming. You should announce when will you pull out of the so called war and crusade. All agreements should be terminated. We say all agreements have been terminated that day when the first attacked happened. These agreements were wrong and we suffered. All extremism and terrorism in Pakistan is the result of wrong policies,' he said. In a massive display of strength, tens of thousands of Pakistanis took part in the mass rallies held across Lahore and Peshawar to raise their voice against the US and NATO. They condemned the recent air strike on Pakistani soil that left 24 people dead.
