Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said that if India thinks there is substance to its allegations against Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed it should pursue charges against him on an international forum.
PM Abbasi, in an interview with Bloomsburg News, said that the Lahore High Court had decided to release the JuD leader as there were no charges against Saeed and that the decision to free him was within the bounds of the law.
“The court, a three-judge bench, has released him saying there are no charges against him, the country has a law you know,” Abbasi told Bloomberg. “Prosecute him internationally if there is substance to these charges ─ these are accusations only. No evidence has been provided by India.”
According to Bloomberg, India claimed it has provided evidence to Pakistan. However, Indian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Raveesh Kumar did not respond to requests for comments, the report said.
