Hafiz Saeed, the founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), has openly spoken out in the favour of violence in Kashmir.

The mastermind of the Mumbai terror attack, Hafiz Saeed, addressing his supporters at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore and said: “a new era has begun and with God’s wishes Kashmir will be an independent state, there has been a lot of bloodshed in Kashmir, and God almighty is watching, he will deliver his verdict, because all the decisions come from the Heaven and not from Washington. The decisions that come from the heaven get cemented on the world and Kashmir will be freed”.

Lashkar-e-Taiba is the major reason for the violence in the Kashmir valley. He also supported and virtually provoked the local Kashmiri youth to pelt stones on security forces in his speech.

Saeed is considered as a proxy of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). He never misses a chance to applause stone-pelters and Kashmiri militants.

Saeed in his address said: “I remember those who have lost their lives and those spirited individuals who use stones against the Indian Army’s bullets and Allah is watching. Even when they are dying they still speak of the unity of Pakistan and Kashmir. This is the new era of Kashmir, and this (Indian Prime Minister) Modi cannot stop it. Because when it comes to the will of God, every decision and verdict will flow from the heavens above.”

Jamaat-ud-Dawa is a political party in Pakistan that was started by Saeed. Hafiz Saeed is now giving his full attention to ensure that the Jamaat-ud-Dawa gets enough seats in the National Assembly of Pakistan.

On 25 July, general election will be held in Pakistan. In the national elections, Seed’s son and son-in-law are among the 265 candidates fielded by Jamaat-ud-Dawa for local assembly seats across Pakistan. They want to win the elections to make the country a “citadel of Islam”.

“We want to make Pakistan an independent state of Allah, and protect all our Muslim brothers, and we are preparing that, we the only Islamic Nuclear state in the world be capable of leading the entire Muslim world”, said Saeed in his public address.

He further added: “everyone must be united in this country, communalism must also be ended to ensure we stand firmly on the mission given to us by our Prophet. I want to prepare everyone and make people more aware about different things and the harder we work the faster the third era of the Muslim World will begin.”

Saeed can freely move in Pakistan even though he carries several terror charges. Pakistan government has never taken any steps against Hafiz Saeed. The government claimed that they did not have enough evidence to take any steps against Saeed.
