India angered by UN body calling Hafiz Saeed 'sahib'

India will seek a clarification from the United Nations over a UN Security Council panel referring to 26/11 Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed as “sahib”.

It is understood that the government will seek the clarification on the usage in the communication by Gary Quilan, the Chair of UN Security Council Committee, on December 17.

Quinlan made the reference to Saeed in the communication on information regarding banned terror organisation Lashkar-e-Toiba and Saeed pursuant to earlier UN resolutions concerning al-Qaeda and associated individuals and entities.

The United Nations had declared JuD a terrorist organisation in December 2008 as also Saeed who was also individually designated by the UN under UNSCR 1267 in December 2008. The United States had slapped a $ 10 million bounty on Saeed, the founder of LeT, and his brother-in-law in April 2003.|

But Saeed roams free in Pakistan and often addresses public rallies in which he routinely makes inflammatory statements.
