India using chemical weapons against Kashmiris: Hafiz Saeed

"The reason that I like these organizations is that I have always been in favour of action in Kashmir and pressuring the Indian army there".

Musharraf is now in Dubai, where he has taken refuge after Pakistan charged him with treason. He also answered "yes" on being asked if he likes Saeed, adding, "I have met him".

Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and working president of Opposition National Conference (NC) Omar Abdullah on Wednesday took a dig at former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf over his statement that he likes Hafiz Saeed and was "biggest supporter" of Lashkar-e-Tayyaba (LeT), saying he could do anything to find a foothold in his country.

It can be recalled that the banned Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) head Hafiz Saeed, who carries a Dollars 10 million American bounty on his head for terror activities, walked free on Friday after the Pakistan government decided against detaining him further in any other case.

Saeed is suspected of masterminding the attack Mumbai in 2008 that killed 166 people. Lashkar-e-Taiba are involved in Kashmir but in Kashmir it is between us and India. India declared this group as terrorists after partnering with the US. "This (LeT and JuD) is the biggest force and they have been declared terrorists by India and the USA jointly", Musharraf said. "The Hafiz Saeed issue is an issue in India, not in the United States".

Saeed, who carries a bounty of $10 million on his head for terror activities, filed a petition in the United Nations asking his name to be struck off from the list of global list of designated terrorists.

Over 160 people died in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.

Saeed, the co-founder of LeT and Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) chief, was freed by the Lahore High Court (LHC) after 297 days of house arrest.

The timing of this remark is significant, as it comes days after Saeed was released from house arrest by a Pakistani court. "Pakistan has not changed its policy of shielding and supporting non-state actors and its true face is visible for all to see", MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said in New Delhi.
