Lahore: The "jihad" in Jammu and Kashmir is
"bearing fruit" and India will soon meet its "logical end",
Lashkar-e-Toiba founder Hafiz Mohammad Saeed, the mastermind
of the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, has claimed.
Saeed, the chief of the LeT`s front organisation
Jamaat-ud-Dawah, made the remarks while addressing a gathering
in Narowal district, 70 km from Lahore, yesterday.
He emphasised the need for jihad or holy war, and asked
the people to dedicate their lives to this cause.
"The jihad is bearing fruit in Kashmir and soon India
will reach its logical end," he claimed.
Explaining the "wonders" of jihad, Saeed said: "The US
has had to give in in Afghanistan because of the power of
jihad and now India will also surrender for the same reason."
He criticised the Pakistan People`s Party-led government
for "abandoning" the cause of Kashmir.
"But we will not leave our brethren alone at this hour,"
he said. Saeed was briefly put under house arrest after the UN
Security Council declared the JuD a front for the LeT in the
wake of the Mumbai attacks.
He was freed on the orders of the Lahore High Court.
The Pakistan government has said it cannot act against
Saeed unless India provides evidence linking him to terrorist
