Saeed, who has been accused of plotting the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, has reportedly warned Pakistan regarding India’s plan for troops deployment in Afghanistan with an aim to target Pakistan.
Speaking durig seminar at the Lahore High Court building on Thursday, Saeed said, “India has sent 25,000 soldiers to Afghanistan and more Indian troops are on their way. The Indian forces will achieve its design against Pakistan sitting in Afghanistan. The presence of Indian forces in Afghanistan is a great threat to Pakistan’s integrity.”
He also claimed that US was behind the deployment of Indian forces on Pakistan’s western border.
“The US wants to teach a lesson to Pakistan by patronising India. America had also wanted to target Pakistan’s atomic programme while sitting in Afghanistan, but it miserably failed because of the sacrifices of Muslims,” Saeed quoted by India Today newspaper said.
Washington had added the LeT’s affiliates including the JuD to its list of designated terror organisations and slapped sanctions against two Pakistan-based Lashkar leaders last month.
