New Delhi: Jama'at-ud-Da'wah chief Hafiz Saeed in a new video clip on Monday rejected the Indian allegation that he provoked anti-India protests in Jawaharlal Nehru University and said that a fake Tweeter account was used to support its claim.
“India has labelled allegations against me that Hafiz Saeed is involved in anti-India protests in JNU.
"After learning about it, I felt very strange because I have never posted any such tweet, and the tweeter account itself is fake,” Saeed said in the video.
“I have not tweeted nor I have tried to provoke the students on the Kashmir cause, because Kashmiris themselves have expressed themselves.
“Everyone knows how Afzal Guru was executed. A big injustice was done to him,” he said.
“I have never spoken about it. But it was made into a big issue in India. The Indian government wanted to portray that this fake account as my own and the tweet as real,” Saeed said.
“I am surprised and want to know what India thinks about the issue of Kashmiri's freedom. India is trying to mislead the world. Kashmir is for Kashmiris.
“People of Kashmir have faced a lot of atrocities and discrimination because of the presence of the Indian security forces.
“We shouldn't we focus on this. Why can't Kashmiris speak about their own freedom.
“And to say that Hafiz Saeed has said this and that is very wrong.
“Even in the case of Mumbai attacks, they have falsely implicated me . Our court has said that it is a media propaganda.
“India runs its government through propaganda. Now it is even cheating its own people.
“So I want to tell Rajnath and others responsible to change this attitude, listen to Kashmiris, don't try to de-track the issue by labelling false allegations against me.
“This method is absolutely wrong, don't make fun of the Kashmir cause... and accept the reality,” Jama'at-ud-Da'wah chief said in the video.
