Terror organisation LeT sponsored an event organised by JuD in the heart of Lahore on the 10th anniversary of 26/11 Mumbai Attack. In attendance of this event, was the Government of Pakistan.
On November 26, India marked a decade of the terror attacks perpetrated in Mumbai by Pakistan-backed terror group, 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed’s JuD organised an event defending the terrorists that caused havoc for four days in the city.
Organised at a Lahore’s posh Faletti’s Hotel found US designated terrorist- Abdul Rehman Makki, brother-in-law of Saeed and JuD member in attendance. Makki at the event, said that 26/11 was a conspiracy to defame ‘us’.
Shockingly, as per Pakistan’s Punjab government information, Minister Fayaz Ul Hasan Chouhan also attended the event, backing LeT against India. On top of that, Pakistan minister Fayaz ul Hasan said, "Ajmal Kasab was not a Pakistani. Hafiz Saeed was not responsible for the attack and 26/11 was an Indian conspiracy. Kasab was in fact an Indian citizen, he belonged to Uttar Pradesh."
Remembering the horrifying terror attack that killed 166 people, injured 300 and scarred the entire nation, the government of India released a statement earlier on Monday telling Pakistan to 'give up on their double standards and ensure justice'.
In fact, prior to this event, Washington also released a statement on November 26 morning announcing a reward of $5 million (35 crores) for providing information leading to the arrest or conviction in any country of any individual who committed, conspired, aided or abetted the 2008 Mumbai attack
The Trump administration announced this major reward (of over Rs 35 crore) on the 10th anniversary of the terror attack in which 10 Pakistan-based LeT terrorist went on a shooting rampage in India's financial hub killing 166 people, including six Americans.
In December 2001, the Department of State designated LeT as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. This designation plays a critical role in the fight against terrorism and is an effective means of curtailing support for terrorist activities and pressuring groups to get out of the terrorism business, the State Department said.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday even called upon Pakistan and other nations to uphold their UN Security Council obligations to implement sanctions against those responsible for the atrocity, including Lashkar-e-Taiba and its affiliates.
"We call upon all countries, particularly Pakistan, to uphold their UN Security Council obligations to implement sanctions against the terrorists responsible for this atrocity, including Lashkar-e-Tayyiba and its affiliates," Pompeo said.
