LeT founder Hafiz Saeed addresses seminar in Lahore high court

LAHORE (TIP): Just days after his organisation was declared a terror outfit by the US, Jamaat-ud-Dawah chief Hafiz Saeed, who orchestrated the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, addressed a seminar at the Lahore high court spewing venom on India and America. This is the second time that Saeed, who is the founder of banned terror organisation Laskar-e-Taiba, has addressed lawyers and others within the court premises this year.

In May, Saeed, who roams around freely in Pakistan despite being a designated terrorist, was invited as chief guest at the Lahore High Court Bar Association, one of the premier bar associations in Pakistan. At that time, the decision was opposed by a section of the lawyers. Saeed addressed the seminar at the Lahore high court building organised by the Pakistan Justice Party.

Tightening its noose around the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), the US had last month added its affiliates, including the JuD to its list of designated terror organisations and slapped sanctions against two Pakistan-based LeT leaders. The US state department has amended Lashkar-e-Taiba’s designations to add its aliases: Jamaat-ud-Dawa, Al-Anfal Trust, Tehrik-e-Hurmat-e-Rasool and Tehrik-e-Tahafuz Qibla Awwal, an official statement had said.
