New Delhi: In a strong reaction to Pakistan providing support to Mumbai attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed-led JuD for the terror group's two-day congregation in Lahore, India on Wednesday termed it as a "blatant disregard" of global norms against terrorism.

"Supporting UN-sanctioned individual or entity is blatant disregard of global norms against terrorism," government sources said here.

In a sign of official patronage to JuD, Pakistan government is running two special trains to transport people to Lahore for the terror group's congregation starting tomorrow.

Pakistan Railways is operating the first train from today from Hyderabad, Sindh province, that will arrive in Lahore tomorrow night. Another train will leave from Karachi and arrive Lahore tomorrow. The two special trains will also take the people back to their hometowns on the conclusion of the congregation.

The JuD leadership had spoken to Railways Minister Saad Rafique for his permission to run special trains for its congregation, according to official sources in Pakistan.

In 2008, the UN Security Council had added Pakistan-based JuD terrorist group and four of its leaders to the list of entities and organizations known to support al Qaeda and the Taliban.
