USA concerned over release of Hafiz Saeed from house arrest

Share

Saeed, who carries a $10 million bounty announced by the U.S. for his role in terrorist activities, was released just after Thursday midnight, after a Lahore High Court review board turned down the government's arguments that he was a threat to public safety.

'Nawaz Sharif asks why he was ousted? He said that he will continue to work for the cause of Kashmir.

His release, he said, was a victory for Pakistan.

He said that his only crime was that he wanted Kashmir's freedom from India and he was arrested for the same.

Infiniti QX50 breaks cover ahead of LA debut
Flat out, the QX50 is claimed to be capable of accelerating from 0-100kph in 6.3sec and reaching a top speed of 143mph/229kph. Perhaps the biggest news for the new model is the introduction of the world's first variable compression ratio engine.

It took the authorities three days to regain full control of the city, and the attacks, which killed more than 160 people, almost brought nuclear-armed arch-enemies India and Pakistan to the brink of war.

The JuD is believed to be the front organisation for the banned Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) which is responsible for carrying out the 2008 Mumbai attack.

In an address to his supporters massed outside his Johar Town residence, the Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) leader thanked the Lahore High Court for refusing to buy the government's arguments that his release would pose a threat to public safety.

Saeed blamed India for his incarceration in Pakistan, saying "Pakistan's rulers detained me on the aspiration of Modi due to their friendship with him".

Fresh allegations of misconduct against Jeremy Piven
It was at this point that Piven asked Taneie to be removed from set for trying to hit on him. Piven's representatives did not immediately respond to Variety's request for comment.

India and Pakistan, who rule parts of the disputed region, have fought two of their three wars over the territory, with scores of militant groups, including LeT, engaged in a decades-old armed insurgency against the Indian rule.

While Saeed was under house arrest, his JuD charity launched a political party, the Milli Muslim League (MML), which has won thousands of votes in by-elections.

Saeed reiterated that the USA, on India's request, pressured Pakistan to detain him. The military denies any direct involvement in civilian politics.
