Pakistan frees Mumbai attack mastermind from house arrest

23 November 2017

A judicial review board in Pakistan on Wednesday gave orders to release 26/11 Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed.

The review board under the chair of Justice Abdul Sami Khan passed these orders after a senior finance ministry official failed to convince the board that the release of Saeed would bring diplomatic and financial problems to the country. A large number of JuD workers also gathered on the court s premises. "Saeed has been placed under house arrest only to please the USA and India", Dogar said and warned the government from detaining Saeed again in any other "fake" case or charges.

Following the decision, Mastermind of Mumbai 26/11 attack will be freed tomorrow. Saeed is now free to walk anywhere, unless there is any other case made against him, which doesn't seem to be happening. Authorities arguing against the release of Saeed are of the opinion that it could invite worldwide sanctions on Pakistan.

Saeed's supporters chanted slogans in favour of their leader.

Saeed has been under house arrest since January. In October, the board had allowed a 30-day extension to the detention of Saeed which will expire next week. "It's because of Kashmir that India is after me, but all her efforts have been in vain and Allah has set me free", he said.

According to the law, the government can detain an individual for up to three months under different charges but an extension in the detention requires approval from a judicial review board. The U.S. has also declared JuD a global terrorist organization, condemning it as a front for the outlawed Pakistani Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) group blamed for carrying out the Mumbai carnage that left 166 people dead.
