Islamabad: Spewing his latest vitriolic anti-India remarks, Jamat-ut-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed on Monday dismissed any possibility of India attacking Pakistan.

Speaking to Pakistani news channel Express News TV, Hafiz Saeed said, “I don’t think this ‘bania’ India can attack on us”.

"India toh Pakistan par hamla kabhi nahi karega na kar sakta hai, yeh toh auraton vaali ladaai kar sakta hai.. (Neither India can and nor it will attack Pakistan… It can only fight like women),” said the JuD chief who is known for spouting anti-India stance.

Hafiz Saeed also updated his Twitter with similar tweets echoing aggressive anti-India sentiments.
One of his tweets also bragged about Pakistan’s nuclear weapons: “I don`t believe in the fantasy that India can ever attack Pakistan. This is not the Pakistan of 1971. Our Nukes are not for museums either.”
Terming Pakistan’s policy as “restrained”, Saeed in another tweet, urged the Nawaz Sharif government to rethink its stance on India.

"Pakistan`s restrained policy is being taken as weakness. Government should review its stance. War or peace is India`s choice," Saeed said.

Hafiz Saeed yesterday unleashed a barrage of anti-India tweets, mentioning Kashmir and also blaming India for Pakistani floods.

“#kashmir does NOT belong to India. It is a disputed territory where millions have died for freedom. Pakistanis should never forsake them,” read another tweet.

Recently, Saeed had also challenged India to prove that he was a terrorist.

"You (India) are continuously calling me a terrorist. But I am not a terrorist, and if you are not satisfied, an independent judicial commission comprising senior lawyers and judges from India and Pakistan should investigate whether I am guilty," Saeed had told Dawn newspaper.

"You (India) look to be very eager to get me. Don`t worry, I myself will visit India," Saeed said.

Hafiz Saeed, who is founder of banned organization Jamat-ud-Dawa, also had a bounty of $10 million imposed on his head by the US.
