Hafiz Saeed says JuD won't allow Hindu temples in Pakistan to be destroyed

Islamabad: Hafiz Saeed, the chief of Pakistan’s banned terror outfit Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD), has said that his organisation will not allow destruction of Hindu temples and other holy places of non- Muslims in the country.

It was Muslims’ responsibility to safeguard holy places of their Hindus brethren, Saeed reportedly said while addressing a meeting in Matli town of Sindh province yesterday.

“We will not allow destruction of temples and other holy places of non-Muslims in the country,” he had warned.

 

 

The JuD chief rejected allegations that his organisation is promoting extremism in Thar area of Sindh, which borders India, by opening seminaries in the poverty-stricken arid region.

Saeed also pledged support for Kashmiri Muslims, according to a Dawn report.

He said the law enforcement agencies were sincerely trying to fight against anti-state actors and RAW agents but the Nawaz Sharif government remained silent over it.
