Islamabad: For decades, several countries – especially India – and global organisations have been on Pakistan’s case for nurturing and protecting global terrorist Hafiz Saeed in its backyard.

 

 

Pakistan arrested him on Wednesday after nations got more and more belligerent asking for action against a man who had masterminded the 2008 coordinated attacks in Mumbai on November 26, 2008, that killed nearly 200 people.

India has suffered most in the hands of Hafiz Saeed as it holds him responsible for three attacks in the country – Parliament attack in 2001, 2006 local train bombings in Mumbai and the 2008 terror attacks in the same city.
