JuD chief Hafiz Saeed prays for Osama
Lahore: Jamaat-ud-Dawah activists led by
their chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed offered funeral prayers in
absentia at the group`s headquarters in Lahore today for Osama
bin Laden, killed by US forces in an operation in northwest
A large number of JuD workers gathered at Markaz
Al-Qadsia and joined the prayers for the Al Qaida chief led by
Saeed, also the founder of the banned Lashkar-e-Toiba.
Addressing the gathering after the prayers, Saeed
said: "Allah accept the sacrifice of bin Laden and give him a
place in heaven."
Bin Laden had made sacrifices for Muslims around the
world and he would be remembered for long, Saeed said.
He said it was regrettable that Pakistan’s rulers
expressed "pleasure" at the death of bin Laden to please their
"masters" in America.
Pakistan`s rulers "should not invite the wrath of God"
as bin Laden acted as a "spokesman of the people of Pakistan"
and the whole nation was saddened by his death, Saeed claimed.
Saeed said funeral prayers in absentia for bin Laden
would be offered in other parts of the country.
