Karachi: Jamaat-ud-Dawah chief Hafiz Muhammad
Saeed, the alleged mastermind of the Mumbai attacks, has
opposed the grant of Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status to
India, saying it "is like shooting ourselves in the foot".

He also alleged that America and India were behind moves
to keep Pakistan constantly embroiled in this so-called war on
terror.

"Granting them MFN status is like shooting ourselves in
the foot. The Pentagon and India are behind moves to keep
Pakistan constantly embroiled in this so called war on
terror," he said.

Speaking at a news conference in Pakistan`s commercial
capital, Karachi, Saeed said, "Pakistan needs to pursue a two
pronged strategy of negotiations and talks with Jihad and to
bring India on the path of talks."

The JuD chief was in the city in connection with the
organisation of the Difaa-e-Pakistan council meet planned for
February 12.

Saeed said the purpose of the meet was to protest NATO
attacks in Pakistan and the decision to grant MFN nation
status to India.

JuD has also put up anti-India posters and banners in the
city.
