Pakistan court upholds decision to release Hafiz Mohammad Saeed

Islamist militant accused of masterminding 2008 Mumbai attack


 

The man India accuses of masterminding the 2008 massacre in Mumbai will remain free after Pakistan’s Supreme Court upheld a lower court’s decision to release him. Hafiz Mohammad Saeed founded the Islamist group Lashkar-e-Taiba, thought to be behind the attack, but Saeed claims he had nothing to do with it. Saeed had not been charged but was placed under house arrest after the United Nations proscribed Lashkar-e-Taiba. He was released last June when a Lahore high court said there was no evidence to justify his continued detention. Pakistan’s federal and Punjabi provincial governments had asked for a review of the Lahore court’s decision.
