Outlawed Jammat-ud-Dawah chief Hafiz Saeed said that “extra-ordinary” reception given to Prime Minister Narendra Modi has hurt the sentiments of the “loyal and patriotic” people of Pakistan.

“What kind of message is given to the Kashmiris by ‘private’ meeting of Modi and Nawaz,” he asked.

The Pakistani media has already been barred from giving any kind of coverage to Mr. Saeed and his organisations by the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority.

The founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba, who is carrying USD 10 million US bounty on his head, further said: “Modi’s visit demonstrates that he has great influence in the region and whenever he wants to visit Pakistan he can and the rulers will accord him warm reception without caring for the national stance over different issues including Kashmir.”
