Pakistani newspapers begin to talk honestly about Hafiz Saeed and his operations
The Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief rejected allegations that his organisation is promoting extremism in Thar area of Sindh, which borders India, by opening seminaries in the poverty- stricken arid region.

It was Hafiz Saeed’s first major public appearance in the capital after three years, showing defiance towards government.
“On the occasion of Kashmir Day, I want more intensity in the freedom struggle. Every child in Pakistan is ready to sacrifice his life for Kashmir’s freedom,” Hafiz Saeed said.
Addressing a rally on Wednesday, Saeed had said, “Indian troops are committing genocide on Kashmiris.
