Hafiz Saeed files petition in United Nations to remove his name from the list of terrorists
Islamabad : 26/11 Mumbai terror attack mastermind and Jamaat-ud-Dawah chief Hafiz Saeed has filed a petition in the United Nations to remove his name from the list of terrorists, reports Times Now on Tuesday.
Hafiz Saeed was listed as a terrorist by the UN under UNSCR 1267 (UN Security Council Resolution) in December 2008. He has been accused as the master mind of Mumbai terror attacks in November 2008.
Before India, US had tagged him a specially designated global terrorist in May 2008.
Now, after Lahore High Court in Pakistan released him from the house arrest, the JuD chief has filed a petition in the UN to remove his name as a terrorist.
Saeed walked free from house arrest last week after Lahore High Court found insufficient evidences against him.
India had expressed outrage when news about Saeed's imminent release broke, and had termed it an attempt by Pakistan to "mainstream" terrorists.
