Why has Pakistan indicted Hafiz Saeed, India's most wanted, now?

Saeed's indictment comes amidst growing pressure on Pakistan to rein-in terror groups and bring to justice terror group leaders. ​​The indictment comes less than a week after Islamabad submitted a report to the FATF, which, in October, had kept the country on the Grey List, asking that it take more concrete steps to avoid being put on the Black List.

  • "While we understand from you that these aircraft movements were done in support of national defense objectives, the US government considers the relocation of aircraft to non-US government authorised bases concerning and inconsistent with the F-16 Letter of Offer and Acceptance," Andrea Thompson, said in his letter.

    The US reaction came hours after an anti-terrorism court in Lahore indicted Saeed and three of his top aides Hafiz Abdul Salam bin Muhammad, Muhammad Ashraf and Zafar Iqbal on terror financing charges. "We welcome the indictment of Hafiz Saeed and his associates," Alice G Wells, the Acting Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia, tweeted.

    "Human rights is not part of this 2+2 discussion that's taking place next week, although I'm confident that issues on Kashmir and the threat perceptions that India sees will obviously be a part of the agenda,” Alice G Wells, the acting Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia, said on Wednesday at a programme.

    "The first lot of 10,000 SiG 716 assault rifles has arrived in India and has been sent to the Northern Command," top Indian Army sources told ANI.

    A two-judge bench of the Lahore High Court headed by Justice Mohammad Qasim Khan while disposing of the petition observed that the petitioner's counsel might file separate petitions against each FIR. Saeed's counsel A K Dogar said that describing Saeed and other JuD leaders as being leaders of Lashkar-e-Taiba is "factually and legally incorrect".

    Hafiz Saeed is the founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), or the Army of the Pure, a militant group blamed by the United States and India for the four-day Mumbai siege, in which 160 people were killed. The dead also included several foreigners, including Americans.Pakistan's counter terrorism police arrested Saeed in July.

    "Imran Khan's comments on India's legislation constitute blatant interference in India's affairs...India is protecting minorities you (Imran Khan) failed to protect. With your views similar to the Congress on Article 370, CAB, etc, Tehreek-e-Insaf is looking like a new partner of Cong-led UPA," BJP spokesperson G V L Narasimha Rao said.
