Hafiz Saeed released from house arrest

26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed to walk free? Pakistan court orders release

A Pakistani court yesterday on Wednesday ordered the release from house arrest of Hafiz Saeed, a notorious jihadi with a $10m United States bounty on his head.

Hafiz Saeed has been under house arrest since January this year and was detained after huge pressure on the federal government by the United States (USA) and severe reservations by India.

The provincial government of Pakistan's eastern province of Punjab had asked for an extension to Saeed's detention but the request was turned down by the court, reports quoting prosecutor Sattar Sahil.

The review board under the chair of Justice Abdul Sami Khan passed these orders after a senior finance ministry official failed to convince the board that the release of Saeed would bring diplomatic and financial problems to the country. Last month, the Judicial Review Board had allowed a 30-day extension to his house arrest. "Hafiz Saeed always worked for Pakistan and the government could not prove any allegation against him", he said.

In a video tweeted by a handle linked to the JuD hours after the board issued its order, Saeed blamed India for his detention and vowed to work for "Kashmir's independence". It had submitted before the review board that release of Saeed could lead to the imposition of global sanctions on Pakistan.

In the recent development, a Pakistani court has announced the mastermind of 26/11 Mumbai attacks will be released from the house arrest in Pakistan.

A Judicial Review Board of Pakistan's Punjab province today ordered the release of Hafiz Saeed.

"The government can not afford to set Saeed free in the current circumstance".

Following the decision, Mastermind of Mumbai 26/11 attack will be freed tomorrow. However, the court refused the plea and said Saeed will be released as per the earlier sentence. "It can not face an worldwide backlash in the event of releasing the JuD chief".

Ten LeT militants killed 166 people and wounded hundreds in Mumbai in November, 2008.
