Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit on Monday said Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafeez Saeed, who is the prime accused in the 2008 Mumbai terror attack case, is free to roam in his nation.
Speaking at a conference organised by Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM), Basit said, “Hafiz Saeed is a Pakistan national, he is free to roam the country. What is the problem?”
Basit’s statements came in response to reports that Saeed was in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK).
Though initially kept under house arrest, a ruling by the Lahore High Court set him free.
Saeed had last week said that India was responsible for the floods in Kashmir.
“India has used water to attack Pakistan, We are in state of War. India’s water aggression must be taken to the UN security council,” he wrote on twitter.
