Jammat-ud-Dawah chief and Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed has threatened India with a “surgical strike” by Kashmiri militants in Jammu and Kashmir that will long be remembered. “(Prime Minister Narendra) Modi had done what he had to. Now it is the turn of Mujahideen to carry out a surgical strike in Kashmir,” Saeed threatened while addressing a rally on Sunday in Mirpur, Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

Watch what else is making news:

“The surgical strike Mujahideen are going to carry out will long be remembered. Such a strike will not be like that of India’s one which is not even acknowledged by the world,” Saeed, the founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba, said in an aggressive tone amid chants of ‘jihad…jihad’ by his supporters. Saeed, the founder of the Lashkar-e-Taiba who carries a USD 10-million bounty on his head, last week criticised the Nawaz Sharif government for giving a “cool” response to India over alleged atrocities in Kashmir, saying people in the Valley need Pakistan’s “full practical support”.

Soon after India’s surgical strikes Saeed had warned the Modi government to get ready to face a surgical strike from the Pakistan army. He was criticised here for issuing the statement on behalf of the army.

        We will see that Hafeez, we will see that. WHEN YOU SEND KASHMERE ATTACKERS PLEASE SEND A HIGH LEVEL EMPOWERED TEAM OF ISI SPIES SO THAT THEY CAN MAKE A REALTIME PROBE OF THE SURGICAL STRIKES AND INSTANTANEOUSLY REPORT THEM TO DOWAL.

          Threatening India for surgical strikes by Hafiz Saeed has tacit support of Hurriyat leaders who donot oppose him.Hurriyat leaders are bent upon destroying India with the help of stan army.They donot want peace in Kashmir ,but want to make Kashmiris slaves by joining stan.They want kashmri youth to remain uneducated so that they can recruit them into terrorist camps.Jehadi cry in stan is liked and supported by Hurriyat leaders.They should be dealt strongly by India because they are communal in nature.Do they know what would happen if Kashmir joins stan or become independent to be grabbed by stan subsequently for terrorist camps.?

                          His influence is waning among his followers and the people of stan, given the failures of his mujaheddin in infiltrating the beefed up defenses of the Indian armed forces. By making such statements, he is trying to fool the people of stan and Kashmir once again.

                            Shout about atrocities in Kashmir and then announce attack on Kashmir. Jihad is violent ic hypocrisy, nothing more nothing less.

                                Let him lead it and perish on Indian soil. Let them overestimate their capability and annihilate themselves this way.

                                  Next surgical strike should be on Hafeez Saeed himself. As it is stan is used to surgical strikes - eg. one by US to pick Osama and more recently by India. I am sure stan can take one more.....

                                    China should listen to their dear friends lecture pertaining to surgical strike on India by Kashmiri militants.This lecture should make them realise that they are backing a wrong horse.

                                        looks like Pak army didn't forget how their rear got violated during the cross LOC strikes. The dog that barks doesn't bite.
