Jamaat-ud Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed, the mastermind of the November 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, may be under house arrest in Pakistan but his terror group continues to plot and execute strikes on the Indian soil.
In an exclusive video accessed by India Today, Hafiz Saeed’s brother-in-law, Abdul Rehman Makki, the man handling JuD’s activities in the absence of 26/11 mastermind, is seen praising the terrorists who attacked CRPF convoy in Srinagar on Saturday (June 25).
The video, which is said to be shot on Sunday, shows Makki extolling Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists when they were holed up inside a school in Srinagar.
“For the last 24 hours, the battle has been continuing in Srinagar. Lashkar soldiers are fighting against Indian Army in Kashmir,” Makki is heard telling a gathering at JuD headquarters in Lahore.
“They are fighting against the cruel Indian Army. If we can’t help them in any way, then I request you to remember them in your prayers,” Makki goes on to say.

14-HOUR-LONG GUNBATTLE IN SRINAGAR
The Army killed two terrorists who had taken refuge inside DPS, Srinagar, school building after a 14-hour-long encounter on Sunday.
The terrorists had first targeted the 29th Battalion of the Central Reserve Police Force at Pantha Chowk in Srinagar killing a sub-inspector and injuring two other securitymen.
SAEED’S ARREST A SHAM
Saeed was put under house arrest by the Nawaz Sharif government on April 30 reportedly after the US clearly told Islamabad that it’ll have to face sanctions if it fails to act against JuD and Saeed.
Hafiz Saeed and his four aides have been detained for “spreading terrorism in the name of jihad”, Pakistan’s interior ministry had told a judicial review board. However, the latest video has once again nailed Pakistan’s lie.
JuD is believed to be the front for the banned Lashkar-e-Taiba . The organisation is accused of involvement in militant activities in India and has already been declared as a foreign terrorist organisation by the US in 2014.
