A day after Pakistan charged Hafiz Saeed under the anti-terror act after succumbing to US pressure, he's still to be arrested and now people are questioning whether it's just an eyewash. The mastermind behind 2611 will get away yet again like he has done on several occasions in the past because the case against him is weak.

AK Dogar, his lawyer, speaking to a news channel, has rubbished the two FIRs saying the charges levelled against Saeed are ridiculous.

He says the two FIRs against Saeed do not even fall under the provisions of the Anti-Terror Act.

Meanwhile, India's Foreign Minister SM Krishna has said that India will be satisfied only when Saeed is booked for his role in the Mumbai attacks.

On Friday, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said that Pakistan's action against Saeed was some movement forward.
