Peace between India and Pakistan is not desirable as far as Hafiz Saeed is concerned, because he believes that the jihad must continue until all Muslims in India as well as Kashmir are free from kuffar rule.
“JuD chief slams cricket diplomacy, vows jihad,” from Zeenews, April 12:
Islamabad: The 26/11 attacks mastermind and the founder of banned militant outfit Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) Hafiz Saeed has once again rubbished the efforts by India and Pakistan to improve bilateral ties in the pretext of a cricket World Cup match between the two nations.
The JuD founder, while addressing a gathering of his supporters in Islamabad, slammed the good will gesture initiated by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh which led to his Pakistani counterpart accepting the invite to come to Mohali for the India-Pakistan match played on April 30.
And on the sidelines of the epic cricketing encounter, both leaders had held talks on ways to strengthen the bilateral ties.
But Saeed is, for obvious reasons, livid, he said, “This cricket diplomacy, these so called trade and friendship efforts have no value. We want to be clear about this. We are with the Kashmiri people and will continue to give our full support till they are free. We will stand by the Kashmiri people until they have achieved freedom.”
In his highly provocative rant, the JuD chief said that his organisation will continue to support the people of Kashmir against their suppression by Indian forces till they achieve their ultimate goal of freedom.
Saeed made these remarks while leading the funeral prayers for Kashmiri leader Maulvi Showkat Ahmed Shah, killed in Srinagar last week, and vowed for a “jihad” in J&K….
“The path the Pakistani government is adopting, to gain India’s friendship is not acceptable to Pakistan under any circumstances and we want to be clear about this, we are with the Kashmiris and, god willing, we will fulfil our commitment,” Saeed reportedly told his armed supporters.
Saeed also claimed that the movement in Kashmir would serve as an example for “Muslims in Hyderabad and Junagarh who want independence from the oppression of Hindus”….
