Hafiz Saeed, Jamaat-Ud-Dawa (JuD) chief, has said the statement by an Indian official that New Delhi orchestrated the attack on Parliament and the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai clears his name and vindicates his stand that his organization had nothing to do with the attacks. Speaking on ARY Television, a local Pakistani channel, Saeed said the statement by Satish Verma, an Gujarat cadre IPS officer Satish Chandra Verma showed “the real story.”

He told his audience that he was more upset with the Pakistan government than the Indian government because it had hounded him despite him being cleared of the charged by the Lahore High Court.

“The then interior minister in Pakistan was working under pressure from India,” Saeed said, adding his party was a charitable organization educating Muslims in Pakistan. The JuD chief said that the whole drama of involving the JuD with the attacks in India was RAW’s handiwork.
