India asks Pakistan to rein in  JuD chief
India on Thursday asked Pakistan to rein in JuD chief and internationally-designated terrorist Hafiz Saeed, who warned of more Pathankot type terror attacks.

“Hafiz Saeed is globally-designated international terrorist. His claim that his front organisations carry out charitable work is not even a fig leaf. He indulges in terrorist activities and terrorist financing. It should be a matter of grave concern to everyone that terrorist like Saeed and his associates continue to enjoy the freedom to indulge in their activities (in Pakistan),” External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Vikas Swarup said.

Addressing a rally, Saeed stated, “Eight lakh Indian troops are committing genocide on Kashmiris. Don’t they have a right to carry out Pathankot-style attacks for their defence? You have only seen one attack on Pathankot. Matters could easily escalate.”

Ban on Saeed’s events
Swarup wondered how come the electronic media continue to show Saeed’s speeches though the Pakistan government in October 2015 claimed it would ban media coverage of Saeed events.

Asked about the status of Indo-Pak Foreign secretary-level talks, he said no mutually convenient date has been agreed upon between the two countries, but the National Security Advisors of India and Pakistan as well as the foreign secretaries are in touch with each other.
