Pakistan has embarrassed United States president Donald Trump after he tweeted about the arrest of Hafiz Saeed. Pakistan countered the US on Hafiz Saeed and said that he was not a terrorist and that Trump was ignorant.
Railway Minister Sheikh Rashid said that, "This is a situation created in the world by FATF, Hafiz Saeed is not a terrorist. Trump has tweeted that we have caught him after two years of hard work, what could be more ignorant than that. but Imran Khan is going American tours, so I have nothing more to say,"
On Wednesday, a misinformed President of the United States claimed that 'great pressure' was exerted for his "search" for the past two years after which Hafiz Saeed was arrested. He said that pressure was exerted for the last two years to find him.
In a so-called crackdown against terrorism, Pakistan arrested the Lashkar-e-Taiba co-founder Hafiz Saeed, yet again on Wednesday. Arrested and released multiple times, Saeed has been taking shelter on the Pakistan soil and roaming around freely, allegedly under the safety blanket of the Pakistan military.
MEA Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar initially slammed Pakistan over Saeed's multiple sham arrests and releases and its inadequacy to take stronger action against the US-designated global terrorist.
"This drama of Hafiz Saeed's arrest and release has been more than eight times since 2001. We have been seeing this drill. The question is whether this time, Saeed will be tried and sentenced for his terrorist activities. We all know that he is the mastermind of Mumbai 26/11 terror attacks," MEA Spokesperson said
