Pakistan JUD head Hafiz Saeed’s praise to Indian journalist Barkha Dutt backfired after she took offence and called him a terrorist.
India considers Hafiz Saeed as a most wanted terrorist for his role in 26/11 Mumbai attacks. USA has also placed a $10 million bounty on his head.
In an interview with Pakistan’s Neo TV on Sunday, Hafiz Saeed said India blamed him for everything while he spoke only about Kashmir. He added that there were dissenting voices in India as well and mentioned Barkha Dutt by name, and said she spoke sense.
He also said Congress had told Modi government not to blame Pakistan but to put its own house in order.
The right-wingers, who call themselves nationalists, in India accuse Barkha Dutt, known for her aggressive secular stance, for being soft on Pakistan.
