Mumbai – Indradev Pandey
A Pakistani court has sentenced the mastermind of the Mumbai attacks and Hafiz Saeed, the leader of the Jamaat-ud Dawa, to 10 years. Pak court has heard this sentence in two cases related to terrorism. Despite India’s repeated proofs, Pakistan has always avoided taking action on Hafiz Saeed. But in an attempt to get out of the gray list of the FATF, he is now forced to act on the terrorists. Recently, two other Jamaat-ud-Dawa leaders, including relatives of Hafiz Saeed, were also sentenced by the Pak Anti-Terrorism Court to 32 years in two cases.
A Pakistani court sentenced the terrorist organization’s spokesman Yahya Mujahid to 32 years.
Hafiz Saeed is the most wanted in India
On 26 November 2008, 10 terrorists were attacked in India’s financial capital Mumbai, in which more than 160 people died and more than 300 were injured. The terrorists targeted several areas including the railway station, the Taj and the Trident Hotel. Many foreign nationals were also killed in this attack. During investigation, it was revealed that Hafiz Saeed is behind this attack. India also handed over evidence in this regard to Pakistan several times, but it kept evading action every time. After this attack, America had blacklisted Hafiz.
