Finally Pakistan has awarded 31 years of imprisonment to Jamaat Ud Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed, a terrorist group of Lashkar-E-Toeba, based in Pakistan.
Hafiz Saeed is mastermind of 26/11 terrorist attack on Mumbai in 2008, which took life of 166 persons. The Anti-terrorist Court in Pakistan sentenced Saeed in two cases on Friday. The Cour has also ordered to seize all his property. Earliet the court had also held responsible for funding terrorist activities in the year 2020,
It is believed that the action against Saeed was taken only when Pakistan is likely to black listed by international agency Financial Action Task Force (FATF). Already facing severe financial crisis Pakistan may be pushed deep into the problems, if blacklisted by FATF.
Saeed was sentenced to 15 years of imprisonment earlier, but was moving freely, Pakistan was charged of funding and supporting terrorists, because of granting free hand to terrorist organisations like Lashak. Saeed is founder of the terrorist group.
