IB declares high alert following Hafiz Saeed's release

India accused Pakistan of helping organize the attacks in cooperation with Saeed, who is head of the Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) charity, which USA officials say is a front for the banned Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba militant group.

It also commented that the Mumbai terrorist attack mastermind and banned Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) leader's release determines Pakistan's attitude towards terrorism and in bringing terrorists in front of Justice.

The Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) head, who carries a Dollars 10 million American bounty for his role in terror activities, was released after the government decided against detaining him further in any other case.

Hafiz Saeed has been under house arrest since January this year and was detained after huge pressure on the federal government by the United States (USA) and severe reservations by India.

India and the United States expressed concern at his release, calling for Saeed to be prosecuted over the Mumbai attack that killed 166 people, including Americans. Taking an example of release order to strengthen his claim of "innocence", Saeed said, "I am very happy that none of the allegations against me were proved as three judges of the LHC ordered my release..."

According to a BBC report, he said, "India has always levied allegations of terrorism. but Lahore High Court decision has proved that all of India's propaganda is false".

Saeed also said that the United States had pressured Pakistan to detain him on India's request.

"His release confirms once again the lack of sincerity on the part of Pakistan to get to justice the perpetrators of the Mumbai terror attack", the representative said.

Pakistan and the JuD have denied involvement in the Mumbai attack.
