Months after Pakistan got itself removed from the Grey List of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) for facilitating terror funding across the world, the globally designated terrorists are seen roaming freely in the country and imposing their jihadi agenda.

The recent revelation is about Hafiz Saeed, Lashkar-e-toiba supremo, who was jailed in Pakistan for 31 years. It has come from a YouTube channel “Real entertainment TV” that is run by a Pakistan vlogger Sohaib Chaudhary.

In a video posted on the channel six days ago, a follower of Saeed says that the latter was behind the conversion of seven Hindu families of Ghotki in Sindh during the recent floods,

When asked if he was present there at the time of conversion, the supporter said, “no, he wasn’t there but it was due to his influence that the families converted of their free will.”

It may be recalled that the Hindus and other minority group members of Pakistan faced open discrimination in receiving relief material during the devastating floods.

Hafiz Saeed’s supporter spilled the beans by boasting that he was respected and loved by the Hindus of Ghotki, a town in Sindh, and that he celebrated Eid amidst them.

It may be recalled that a court had jailed Saeed for terror funding and some unknown charges for 31 years in April and after the country was taken off the FATF grey list.

The Eid was celebrated in May, What was a terrorist convicted of serious charges dioing in a Hindu dominated area a month after he was supposedly put in a jail for crimes against humanity?

Meanwhile, the US-designated global terrorist Syed Salahuddin supremo of the Hizbul Mujahideen was seen offering prayers for the slain terrorists Bashir Ahmed Peer of Kupwara in Rawalpindi at the latter’s funeral.

His presence with a large retinue of security personnel is a clear indication of Pakistan’s continued patronage of terrorists and facilitation of their jihad rant against India.

In a video posted online by Hizb TV the clippings of which were shared by Indian sources, Salahuddin is seen flanked by security personnel - even his mike is held by a policeman in full security gear.

Saying prayers for the slain terrorist commander who was known by his assumed name of Imtiyaz Mir, Salahuddin said, “jihad against India will continue no matter how many people lose their lives and that his aim is the destruction of India.” He pledged to ensure that there is backing out of ‘anti-India jihad till India is destroyed.”

Syed Salahuddin whose real name is Maulana Yusuf Shah belongs to the village Soibugh of central Kashmir and he has been living in Pakistan for nearly 30 years.

He also heads the United Jihad Council, a rag-tag association of terrorist groups in Pakistan that are working against India.

Salahuddin was designated as a global terrorist by the USA and this move has choked the funds for the organization that works as a favourite outfit of Pakistan’s ISI against India in Jammu and Kashmir.
