India expresses anger over 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed's release

A Pakistani judicial body yesterday ordered the release of Saeed from house arrest, seen as a setback to India's efforts to bring to justice the perpetrators of the 2008 Mumbai attacks. The Ministry of External Affairs called this move as a confirmation of Pakistan's lack of seriousness and termed it as an "attempt by Pakistani system to mainstream proscribed terrorists".

"Saeed was also individually designated by the United Nations under UNSCR 1267 (UN Security Council Resolution) in December 2008 following the November 2008 Mumbai attack", the official said. Looking at how the ISI has handled Saeed, it is evident that he is one man they would not ever give up, as he holds the key to pushing Pakistan's policy against India.

On Wednesday, a three-judge review board rejected the Punjab Pakistan government's appeal to extend Hafiz Saeed's detention for three more months as it failed to provide enough evidence against.

Saeed was put under a 90-day house arrest in January, after which his detention was extended several times.

"We plead the board not to order the release of Saeed as Pakistan may face global sanctions", an official requested adding that the JuD leader was detained based on the information of intelligence agencies. Replying to a question on whether the Donald Trump administration has been soft on dealing with terrorism emanating from Pakistan, Kumar called the observation wrong and said both India and the U.S. were on the "same page" in combating terrorism. American and Indian officials did not immediately comment on the court's order.

Kumar said that in India's response, New Delhi had "conveyed that the wife of Mr. Jadhav would like to travel along with her mother-in-law for the meeting".

An official said that the JuD activities are "already under the scanner", and this time, "we may again take action".

Enabling such a meeting however "does not absolve Pakistan of the violations of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations and Human Rights and not following due process in treating Jadhav who remains incarcerated in Pakistan and faces death sentence through a farcical process and on concocted charges", he said.
