WASHINGTON — At a recent rally in Pakistan, a prominent Islamist wanted in both India and the U.S. briefly appeared in front of a raucous crowd.
Reuters reported that Hafiz Saeed, who was behind the 2008 attack on Indian financial capital of Mumbai, has a $10 million U.S. bounty on his head.
The infamous Mumbai attacks killed 166 people over the course of 3 days.
Saeed called for support of the government against Pakistan’s longtime rival and neighbor India at the rally, which had more than 10,000 people in attendance in the city of Islamabad. Currently, India and Pakistan are pointing fingers at each other as the violence in the disputed province of Kashmir has escalated in recent months.
Some of his remarks were the following:
“The United States and India are very angry with us. This means God is happy with us…War will continue until the liberation of Kashmir…”
“We are ready for every sacrifice for the liberation of Kashmir…”
