Hafiz Saeed leads anti-India march to Islamabad


ISLAMABAD: Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Mohammad Saeed on Friday led thousands of his supporters to an anti-India rally from the garrison city of Rawalpindi into the federal capital Islamabad on Friday. JuD is an offshoot of the designated terror organization Lashkar-e-Taiba.

The rally, which was addressed by Saeed in Rawalpindi after Friday prayers, marched towards Islamabad at snail’s pace and reached the capital’s blue area late in the evening.

“We do not want to fight with India but only demand our rights,” Saeed said before highlighting his long list of demands, accusing India of ceasefire violation in Kashmir, claiming water dispute, and alleging India supports insurgency in Pakistan’s south-western Baluchistan province.

Saeed urged Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to raise all outstanding issues with India during his upcoming meeting with his Indian counterpart on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly session in New York end September.

“The entire nation would support you (Sharif) if you demand Pakistan’s rights during talks with India. We do not speak of war with India but demand our rights,” Saeed said at Rawalpindi’s Liaquat Bagh, the place where the country’s former premier Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in December 2007. Saeed lashed out at India and the US, accusing Washington of deliberately pushing its war in Afghanistan onto the streets of Pakistan.

It took several hours for Saeed to arrive in Islamabad. Life very nearly came to standstill in the twin-cities as the main road linking Rawalpindi with Islamabad remained jammed for hours. (TNN)
