In May, Saeed, who roams around freely in Pakistan despite being a designated terrorist, was invited as chief guest at the Lahore High Court Bar Association, one of the premier bar associations in Pakistan.
At that time, the decision was opposed by a section of the lawyers.
Saeed addressed the seminar at the Lahore High Court building organised by the Pakistan Justice Party. Tightening its noose around the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), the US had last month added its affiliates, including the JuD to its list of designated terror organisations and slapped sanctions against two Pakistan-based LeT leaders.
The US State Department has amended Lashkar-e-Taiba's designations to add its aliases: Jamaat-ud-Dawa, Al-Anfal Trust, Tehrik-e-Hurmat-e-Rasool and Tehrik-e-Tahafuz Qibla Awwal, an official statement had said.
