Jamaat-ud-Dawa deplores terrorism: Hafiz Muhammad Saeed

LAHORE: Addressing a press conference here Thursday the chief of the Islamic charity group Jamaat-ud-Dawa Hafiz Muhammad Saeed said the Jamaat-ud-Dawa is a bonafide charity organistaion of Pakistan and does not condone any form of terrorism.

“It is India's propaganda that it has connected Jamaat-ud-Dawa in the Mumbai incident,” he said.

Further into the press conference Hafiz Muhammad Saeed said the decision to involve Jamaat-ud-Dawa in the Mumbai attacks is a conspiracy by India.”

“Jamaat-ud-Dawa is not a terrorist organistaion and we deplore any and every act of terrorism,” he said.

“The decision to clamp down on Jamaat-ud-Dawa is against Pakistan and Islam,” he said.

The decision against Jamaat-ud-Dawa means that the Jamaat should stop its charity work.

“The Jammat-ud-Dawa has 156 offices, running 8 big hospitals, 12 blood banks, 73 ambulances, conducted more than 800,000 vaccinations, not to mention relief efforts in the Balochistan earthquake areas, the Tsunami in Indonesia, 14,500 goat sacrifices (qurbani) in disaster-hit areas, relief work in jails, orphanages and running education centers,” Hafiz Muhammad Saeed said.

“Just imagine the amount of people which would be affected by the government's decision to clamp down on us,” he said.

“I challenge the U.S. and India to bring forth any evidence in the Mumbai attacks,” he said.

He lauded the Pakistani media for responsible reporting and coverage in this situation.

“I thank the media for acting responsibly in these circumstances,” he said.

To a question Hafiz Muhammad Saeed said, “I wrote a letter to the U.N. Security Council but all they said was that they were in receipt of my letter.”

Replying to another question he said, “Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi is a leader of the Kashmiri movement in Kashmir and they are banned here (in Pakistan).”

In answer to a question that if he knew Mahmood Muhammad Ahmed Bahaziq, Hafiz Muhammad Saeed said, “This is the first time I'm hearing that name.”

Talking about India's conspiracy, he said, “Look at what India is doing in Kashmir not to mention Balochistan.”

“It is India's habit to conspire,” he said.
