USA calls for arrest of released LeT leader Hafiz Saeed

Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed was released from house arrest on Friday

Instead, Mr Saeed has spent much of the last decade being placed under house arrest and then released.

Pakistan has been detaining and freeing Saeed off and on since the attacks that left 166 dead, including several Americans.

"If Pakistan does not take action to lawfully detain Saeed and charge him for his crimes, its inaction will have repercussions for bilateral relations and for Pakistans global reputation", Sanders said in a statement, reflecting the Trump administrations outrage at Saeeds release.

Pakistani authorities on Friday released the alleged mastermind of the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks who has a $10 million USA bounty on his head. But by bluntly calling out Pakistan and its terrorist ward, the Trump White House has cornered Islamabad.

After his latest release from house arrest, Mr Saeed attacked recently ousted prime minster Nawaz Sharif as a "traitor" for his efforts to seek peace with India. The mastermind of the 26/11 attacks on Mumbai was under detention since January but released on Friday after a directive from the judicial review board of Pakistan's Punjab Province.

In an extraordinarily strong statement on the subject, the White House just stopped short of calling Pakistan a state sponsor of terrorism+, saying the country's failure to prosecute or charge Saeed, "sends a deeply troubling message about Pakistan's commitment to combatting worldwide terrorism and belies Pakistani claims that it will not provide sanctuary for terrorists on its soil".

Saeed blamed India for his incarceration in Pakistan, saying "Pakistan's rulers detained me on the aspiration of Modi due to their friendship with him".

In a brief media interaction after offering Friday prayer, the JuD chief also narrated his version as to why Nawaz Sharif was disqualified.

"We have been paying Pakistan billions and billions of dollars at the same time they are housing the very terrorists that we are fighting", Trump had said at that time as he unveiled his new Afghan strategy, adding: "No partnership can survive a country's harbouring of militants and terrorists who target USA service members and officials".

The move outraged both US and Indian authorities.

He is a United Nations and US-designated terrorist.

Pakistan won major non-NATO ally status in 2004 from the George Bush administration, in what was at the time seen in part as recognition of its importance in the us battle against al Qaeda and Taliban insurgents.

The Dawn report says that Hafiz Saeed accused India of "funding and fueling terrorism and extremism in Pakistan" and claimed that evidences were available to substantiate this. Betrayal and disrespect-and much worse. That came about after Pakistani military's purported rescue of American hostage Caitlan Coleman and her family after five years of Taliban captivity. Islamabad has rejected the criticism, saying it has also suffered being an ally of Washington in the war against terror.
