'Will protect Hindu temples in Pakistan', says Jamaat Chief Hafeez Saeed
Banned Islamist group leader of Jamaat- Ud- Dawa (JuD) Hafiz Saeed said his organisation will not allow the destruction of Hindu temples and other holy places of non-Muslims in Pakistan.
It was Muslims' responsibility to safeguard holy places of their Hindus brethren, he said while addressing a meeting in Matli town of Sindh province yesterday.
"We will not allow the destruction of temples and other holy places of non-Muslims in the country," he warned.
Saeed, a mastermind in the 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai in 2008, rejected allegations that his organisation is promoting extremism in Thar area of Sindh, which borders India, by opening seminaries in the poverty- stricken arid region.
Saeed also pledged support for Kashmiri Muslims, according to a Dawn report.
He said the law enforcement agencies were sincerely trying to fight against anti-state actors and RAW agents but the Nawaz Sharif government remained silent over it.
