Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed walks free; vows to fight for ‘Kashmir cause

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Mumbai attack mastermind and banned JuD chief Hafiz Saeed on Friday walked free from house arrest and said he would gather people across Pakistan for the “cause of Kashmir” and try to help Kashmiris get their “destination of freedom”.The Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) head, who carries a USD 10 million American bounty for his role in terror activities, was freed after the government decided against detaining him further in any case. He was under detention since January. “I was detained for 10 months only to stop my voice for Kashmir,” Saeed told his supporters gathered outside his residence to celebrate his release.“I fight for the cause of Kashmiris. I will gather the people from across the country for the cause of Kashmir and we will try to help Kashmiris get their destination of freedom,” he said upon his release.Punjab province’s Judicial Review Board comprising judges of the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday unanimously ordered Saeed’s release on the completion of his 30-day house arrest which expired last night.Saeed said that he was detained when he announced a month of solidarity for Kashmiris in January.Using the release order to buttress 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… India had levelled baseless allegations against me. The LHC’s review board decision has proved that I am innocent”.The JuD chief said that the US, on India’s request, pressured Pakistan to detain him. “I was detained on the pressure of the US on the Pakistani government. The US did so on the request of India,” he claimed.Several JuD supporters, gathered outside Saeed’s house in Lahore’s Jauhar town to celebrate his release, shouted anti- India slogans and described their leader as “a hope for the Kashmiri people”.“We are happy to see our leader free. Hafiz sahib received his release order from the jail officials. Now he is a free man,” JuD spokesman Ahmad Nadim said.“Saeed has been freed as the Punjab government decided not to detain him further in any other case,” a top government official told PTI.He said that after a long deliberation, it has been decided to follow the review board’s decision.Saeed’s release would invite strong criticism from India and the US, official sources said. “It remains to be seen as how would the PML-N government handle the foreign pressure to again detain Saeed,” they said.Punjab Assistant Advocate General Sattar Sahil said the government law officer had presented “some important evidence” to justify Saeed’s detention, but all three members of the board unanimously rejected it and ordered his release.On January 31, Saeed and his four aides Abdullah Ubaid, Malik Zafar Iqbal, Abdul Rehman Abid and Qazi Kashif Hussain were detained by the Punjab government for 90 days under the Anti-Terrorism Act 1997 and the Fourth Schedule of Anti- Terrorism Act 1997. The last two extensions were made on the ‘public safety law’The board refused to give further extension to the detention of Saeed’s aides. They were set free last month.According to the rules, the government could detain a person for up to three months under different charges, but for an extension, it needs approval from a judicial review board.The JuD is believed to be the front organisation for the banned Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) which is responsible for carrying out the Mumbai terror attack in 2008 in which 166 people, including six Americans, were killed.Saeed was put under house arrest after the Mumbai attack in November 2008 but he was freed by a court in 2009.India has repeatedly asked Pakistan to re-investigate the Mumbai terror attack case and demanded the trial of Saeed and LeT operations commander Zaki-ur Rehman Lakhvi in the light of the evidence it had provided to Islamabad.Ten LeT militants had killed 166 people and wounded dozens in Mumbai in November 2008. Nine of the attackers were killed by police while lone survivor Ajmal Kasab was caught and executed after a court found him guilty. Saeed was declared a global terrorist by the US and the UN after the Mumbai attack.A day after a Lahore High Court judicial review board ordered 26/11 Mumbai attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed’s release from house arrest, India on Thursday expressed “outrage”, saying Pakistan has exposed its true face by attempting to “mainstream” UN-proscribed terrorists.

HC queries authorities on ground water contamination

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Concerned over the possibility of ground water contamination in the city due to industrial units in residential areas, the Delhi High Court today asked the authorities what steps they were taking to prevent it. A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice Navin Chawla issued notices to the Central Ground Water Board, Delhi government, Delhi Pollution Control Board and various civic bodies of the national capital and sought their stand by May 25. It queried the authorities after taking cognisance of a news report about discharge of carcinogenic chemicals by cloth dyeing units in Mustafabad locality of northeast Delhi. The report published in a national daily states that the untreated effluents are contaminating ground water, which is the main source of drinking water in the area, and that it is being linked to the high rate of cancer there. The bench expressed displeasure over the dyeing units operating in residential area and said, “This is happening because nobody wants to get out of their offices and see what is happening in the areas under their jurisdiction”. “None of the agencies are working properly, even the MCDs are not performing their duty as per the statutory provisions under the law,” it said, adding that there is not even a water policy in the country. It asked all the authorities to inform it whether they have taken any steps to prevent such activities in Delhi. The news report states that though no study has been conducted in this Mustafabad locality, locals trace the genesis of the abnormal rate of cancer to toxic chemicals used by the denim dyeing units. Shocked to learn from the report that the locality is known as ‘cancer colony’, the bench observed, “the issue is of large environment concern”. Two deaths and eight suspected tumour cases have been detected in the locality “Release of poisonous substance from these industries may not only impact the ground water in that area, but it may soon spread over other part of the city,” the bench said. It directed the Delhi government to place a preliminary report with regard to the impact on the health of residents in and around Mustafabad area due to such units. It also asked the Delhi government to ensure that proper medical facility is made available to the residents of the area. It observed that the “genesis of the problem is misuse of properties by the people”. The court noted that the residents of the locality depend on borewells and it is quite likely that the acids, dyes and untreated effluents discharged into the drain eventually seep into the ground water.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)

‘Baahubali 2’ caught in a row over actor’s comments 9 yrs ago

<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>A controversy over a ‘Baahubali’ actor’s alleged anti-Kannada comment nine years ago threatens to stall the release of the second edition of the epic fantasy film in Karnataka next week with fringe groups today insisting on an apology from him. The controversy had broken out after a video in which actor Sathyaraj made the alleged anti-Kannada comments in the context of the Cauvery river water row surfaced a fortnight back and went viral. Karnataka and Tamil Nadu are locked in a dispute over sharing of Cauvery waters. Director S S Rajamouli sought to distance himself and his “Baahubali 2” team from the comments that have led to a protest in Karnataka against the film’s release. He said the filmmakers were in no way related to the remarks. He appealed to the activists of some Kannada fringe groups not to stall the release of the film. But the appeal failed to pacify the Kannada outfits, who have called for a “Bengaluru bandh” on April 28, the date of the release of the much-anticipated film, as they insisted on an apology by Sathyaraj, who plays a key character. “…We are not against the film or Rajamouli. Until Sathyaraj tenders unconditional apology, our protest will continue,” Vatal Nagaraj, who heads ‘Kannada Okoota’, an umbrella organisation of Kannada bodies, said, in response to Rajamouli’s appeal. “There will be a Bengaluru bandh on April 28 and also there will be protests across the state. We can’t accept anything else other than apology by Sathyaraj.” Sathyaraj, who plays the role of Kattappa in the multi- lingual drama, made the alleged anti-Kannada comments during the Cauvery River row between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka about nine years ago. Sathyaraj is from Tamil Nadu. Rajamouli said the team was unaware of the actor’s remarks till it saw a video on a social media site. “The producer and I want to clarify on the issue… The comments must have pained some of you but we don’t have any relation to it. Those were (his) personal comments and were made some nine years ago,” the director said in a video message on his official Twitter page. He also pointed out that many of Sathyaraj’s films have been released since then, including the 2015 film “Baahubali”. “The way you accepted and appreciated ‘Baahubali Part I’, I request you to do the same for ‘Part II’… Sathyaraj is neither the director nor the producer of this movie. He is one of the many artistes associated with this film. “If you stall the release of the film, it may not affect him (Sathyaraj) that much. But it is not right to show your anger on this film for the comments made by him,” he said. The director said Sathyaraj has been “updated about the situation” but beyond that the team could not do much. “I request you not to involve us in this matter as it is nowhere connected to us. We want your affection to continue,” he said. The film’s producer, Shobu Yarlagadda, had also expressed the hope that the issue would be resolved amicably. “This is a very sensitive issue, and I don’t want to comment much on it. The only thing I want to say is – we will resolve the issue amicably in the interest of all concerned,” he had said.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
