Anti Terrorist Front India president Viresh Shandaliya on Saturday announced an award of Rs 20 lakh to anyone who chopped off the head of 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed and Zakiur Rehman Lakhavi.

Hafiz Saeed is Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief and founder of the Lashkar-e-Taiba, Lakhavi is latter’s supreme commander.


Reacting to the raising of Pakistani flags at a rally led by Hurriyat hardliner Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Shandliya said activists of his Front will soon be visiting the state to challenge people like Hafiz Sayeed and Geelani. They will hold demonstrations and burn Pakistani flags in front of the Kot Bhalwal jail in Jammu where separatist Jamat-i-Islami leader Masarat Alam has been detained for raising Pakistani flags at his recent rally in the Valley.

He also asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to stop bus service between India and Pakistan. If their demand remained unheard, the Front activists will gherao the bus and burn Pakistani flags, he added.

Meanwhile, the BJP condemned the statement of Hurriyat hardliner Syed Ali Shah Geelani about restricting the duration of Amarnath yatra to a month and asked the state government to take immediate action against him for trying to disturb the peaceful atmosphere in the state. “After having failed to get any public support in the Valley, these separatist leaders are now interfering in religious issues like Amarnath yatra to remain in limelight,” said state BJP chief spokesperson Sunil Sethi.

Referring to raising of Pakistani flags at Geelani’s anti-India rally at Tral, Sethi said that he too will be arrested like Alam.
