New Delhi: Microblogging site Twitter on Monday suspended the account of controversial Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief and alleged mastermind of 26/11 attacks, Hafiz Saeed.
On several occasions, the Islamist leader has been accused of using his account to voice his opinions against India. However, Twitter gave no reason for why it suspended his account.
India has often criticised Pakistan for letting Saeed, accused of masterminding the 2008 attacks in Mumbai, hold rallies in Pakistan, saying it was “nothing short of mainstreaming terrorism”.
Last week, Saeed warned Prime Minister Narendra Modi that the Kashmir dispute needed to be resolved immediately otherwise Jihad against India will continue.
“Narendra Modi should be straightforward and resolve the Kashmir dispute, and if you are not ready to resolve it, then God willing, Kashmir will be the gateway and we will Jihad against India,” Hafiz Saeed, head of terror group Jamaat-ud-Dawa, said.
Saeed also asked Pakistan to help the “freedom fighters” in Kashmir. “Nawaz Sharif, I will tell you the order of Allah, if Modi is not ready for dialogue on Kashmir and the United Nations resolutions, then you go and help the freedom fighters. It is the simple and straight way to resolve it,” he said.
A Twitter account, purportedly belonging to Saeed, had also blamed India for the floods in Pakistan. “India has used water to attack Pakistan, We are in state of War. India’s water aggression must be taken to the UN security council,” said a tweet from @Jud_Official handle, managed by Saeed’s media team.
