ISLAMABAD, 12 Oct : Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) lawmaker Rana Muhammad Afzal on Thursday questioned the government’s failure to act against Saeed, the founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba and the head of its frontal charity Jamaat-ud-Dawa.

“Which egg is Hafiz Saeed laying for us that we are nurturing him,” Afzal said in a meeting of the standing committee on foreign affairs, as per a report in BBC Urdu.

The Pakistani lawmaker made the remark during a meeting of the National Assembly Standing Committee of Foreign Affairs. He further said that, “The efficacy of our foreign policy speaks for itself when we couldn’t curtail Hafiz Saeed.”

The Daily quoted Afzal saying that, “India has built such a case against us about the JuD chief that during the meeting on Kashmir, foreign delegates mention him (Hafiz Saeed) as the bone of contention between Pakistan and India.”

He said the country needed to be freed of such elements that have “led the world to start isolating us and trying to declare (Pakistan) a terrorist state.”

Beyond this, as a result of India’s diplomatic blitz over Pakistan’s pro-terror policy, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has told the country’s all-powerful ISI to crack down on terrorists and end the Mumbai attack trial and the probe into the Pathankot strike – New Delhi’s two key conditions to resume peace talks with Islamabad.
