Hafiz Saeed dismisses Rajnath’s claim over JNU protests

JuD chief Hafiz Mohammad Saeed on Monday rejected claims by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh that he had supported the event in JNU in memory of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.

“The India home minister has alleged that I am behind the protest of Kashmiri students in Jawaharlal Nehru University where they chanted slogans in favour of Pakistan. He also talked my tweet in this regard. I felt strange after learning the Indian home minister had given a reference of a tweet with my name,” Saeed said in a video message posted on YouTube.

“Neither I am behind the students protest nor I did any tweet to incite them (students). It is a fake tweet. India has made an issue out of this as if I am behind this protest campaign,” said Saeed.

The founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba said he wondered as how India is looking at the Kashmir freedom movement.

“The Indian minister is misleading his own people and the world by levelling allegation on me that I am behind this protest campaign,” he said.

He asked Rajnath and other officials concerned to listen to the Kashmiri people.

“Do not make Kashmiri freedom struggle a joke,” he said.

Saeed, who is carrying a US bounty of USD 10 million, said India had also baselessly involved him in the 2008 Mumbai attack case.
