India seeks Clarification from UN over Referring to Hafiz Saeed as "Sahib"

New Delhi, Dec 22: Expressing anger over the UN Security Council panel referring to 26/11 Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed as "sahib", India sought a clarification from the UN.

Gary Quilan, the Chair of UN Security Council Committee, on last Wednesday had addressed the JuD chief Hafiz Saeed as "sahib" in a communication on information regarding the banned terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and its founder Saeed.

India expressed its schok over such usage in the communication by the UN that had declared JuD a terrorist organisation in December 2008 and Saeed as a terrorist.

The United States had slapped a USD 10 million bounty on Saeed and his brother-in-law in April 2003.
But Saeed roams free in Pakistan and often addresses public rallies in which he makes inflammatory statements against India and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Earlier this month, Saeed held a rally supported by the Pakistan government and opposition parties in Lahore where he warned India of battle demanding Kashmir. He vowed to take revenge against India for its role in separating East Bengal from Pakistan and making it a free nation in 1971.
