New Delhi, Apr 3: It seems that Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) chief Hafiz Saeed hurled a slap on the face of Barack Obama's nation. Within hours of US' announcement of $10 million bounty on the mastermind of Mumbai terror attacks 2008, Saeed claimed that US is "frustrated."
While Saeed dared US, he did not even spare India as he asserted that India has been "misguiding US" over terrorism issues.
During an interview with a news channel - Al Jazeera, Saeed on Tuesday, Apr 3 claimed, "I believe either the US has very little knowledge and is basing its decisions on wrong information being provided by India or they are just frustrated."
Saeed also said, "We are not hiding in caves for bounties to be set on finding us. I think the US is frustrated because we are taking out countrywide protests against the resumption of NATO supplies and drone strikes."
Hafiz Saeed has joined the FBI's list of most wanted terrorists' and currently roaming free in Pakistan despite all strong evidences against him.
Wendy Sherman, secretary of state for political affairs, who is on her visit to India said that Hafiz Saeed's brother-in-law, Abdul Rehman Makki also has a $3 million on his head. Apart from this Ayman al-Zawahiri, new al-Qaeda chief carries a bounty of $25 million on his head.
Hafiz Saeed, one of the most wanted Indian terrorists' was under house arrest in 2009 after it was alleged that he is the mastermind behind the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai. The cases levelled against him were, however, quashed by a Lahore court which declared that Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) was not a banned organization and free to work in Pakistan.
