Islamabad: After Pakistani Twitterati extended support to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Twitter in Pakistan, they made terrorist Hafiz Saeed go trend on the social networking service on Thursday night.

Social media users in Pakistan showered praise on Saeed, the founder of Lashkar-e-Toiba and the head of its frontal charity Jamaat-ud-Dawa, and within hours, #IAmHafizSaeed listed among the top trends on Twitter.

The JuD`s chief supporters, in a series of tweets, praised and lauded his efforts and works that he is doing in Pakistan.

Earlier on Thursday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's demand from the Modi government to release proof that the Indian Army did conduct surgical strikes on terrorist camps in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) made him top Twitter trend in Pakistan.

His demand earned him bashing back home and a hashtag `#PakStandsWithKejriwal` in Pakistan.

Have a look at the tweets with hashtag #IamHafizSaeed:

Hafiz Saeed, one the most wanted terrorists in India, has been blamed for masterminding terror attacks in Kashmir and other parts of India including the 2008 Mumbai carnage that killed 166 people.

Meanwhile, voices favouring action against terror groups are growing louder in Pakistan with ruling as well as opposition lawmakers asking the government to stop protecting terrorists like Hafiz Saeed whose activities have plunged the country into diplomatic isolation.
