In truth everything and everyone
Is a shadow of the Beloved,
And our seeking is His seeking
And our words are His words...
We search for Him here and there,
while looking right at Him.
Sitting by His side, we ask:
'O Beloved, where is the Beloved?'

Hafiz Saeed, India's most-wanted militant, has been publicly distancing himself from Lashkar activities. 'The JuD may be banned, but it can always resurface with a new name,' said a senior police officer.
