India on Thursday asked Pakistan to “rein in” JuD chief Hafiz Saeed after voicing “grave concern” over his activities in that country. This came a day after the 2008 Mumbai terror attack mastermind warned of more Pathankot-style attacks in India.

“Hafiz Saeed is globally-designated international terrorist. His claim that his many front organisations are carrying out charitable work is not even a fig leaf. He indulges in terrorist activities and terrorist financing. It should be a matter of grave concern to everyone that terrorists like Saeed and his associates continues to enjoy the freedom to indulge in their activities (in Pakistan),” said External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup.

Addressing a rally on Wednesday, Saeed had said, “Indian troops are committing genocide on Kashmiris. Don’t they have a right to carry out Pathankot-style attacks for their defence?… You have only seen one attack on Pathankot. Matters could easily escalate.” Asserting that it was “up to Pakistan to rein in Saeed”, he noted that Pakistan had imposed a ban last year on the media coverage of militant groups like the JuD and LeT but contrary to that ban, the electronic media was showing Saeed’s speeches.

    This is an god-sent opportunity for the Indian Govt. to stall all further talks with Pak on Kashmir because of inaction to rein in Saeed/Umar. Hurt stan at every international forum. Allow Pak to make mistakes,then hurt it even more ...

          What a man gets from his God, he can only give that! No wonder Hafij Saeed does not have anything else to give! On the flip side this is the curse of monotheistic religion which most of the time turn the people into psycho and time bomb. It is time for people to turn to polytheistic religion for health reason alone. You don't get peace using one model, peacefully accept another and at least keep the place live able without resorting to b o m b b l a s t to settle the score! Going back to the roots where these people came from will make world a better place not only for others but also for their own children.

            Our intelligence teams are long used to be influenced by congeasing netas. It will take them a while to come into an action mode regardless of the religion of terrorist. Hafiz surely has developed security nectar because of prior govt. I am hoping new govt will walk their talk by taking some action and not wait for dialogue all the time.
