China Wants Pakistan To Shift 26/11 Mastermind Hafiz Saeed To A West Asian Country


On April 10, 2018, Chinese President Xi Jinping met with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi of Pakistan at Boao State Guesthouse in Hainan Province where he suggested Hafiz Saeed to live a quiet life in a West Asian country to Pakistan PM.

Abbasi’s aide informed The Hindu, “At a 35-minute meeting, at least 10 minutes of the discussion dealt with Saeed. The Chinese President was keen on pressing the Prime Minister to find an early solution to keep Saeed away from the limelight.”

Saeed was allegedly involved in attacks in India such as 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks, Mumbai train bombings of 2006, and Indian Parliament attack of 2001. He is listed on the NIA Most wanted list of terrorists and is declared a global terrorist by the UN, the U.S. and India. He carries a bounty of $5 million on his head for his alleged involvement in attacks.

For the time being, JuD has been accusing America and India of taking action against Saeed.

Saeed was under house arrest for almost nine months by authorities of Pakistan last year but the Lahore High Court ordered to release him.

Earlier this year, just before the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) meeting was held in Paris, the JuD was put on the list of banned organisations. Also, after the FATF meeting, even Pakistan was decided to put on the grey list as it had been failing to prevent terror financing.
