Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed has pledged full support to the Kashmiris in their struggle for “freedom”, and said he backed ‘jihad’ in the State along with the Pakistani government and Army.

“Jihad is the duty of an Islamic government... there is a government in Pakistan and it has always taken the stand that it is the right of Kashmiris to attain freedom. I say what our Army will do to secure the right of the Kashmiris is jihad... We extend help to Kashmiris alongside government... we call this jihad,” he said in a TV interview.
