'Will not allow destruction of temples in Pakistan': JuD chief Hafiz Saeed sings strange tune

Islamabad: Chief of Pakistan's banned Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), Hafiz Saeed, has said his organisation will not allow destruction of Hindu temples and other holy places of non-Muslims in the country.

It was Muslims' responsibility to safeguard holy places of their Hindus brethren, he said while addressing a meeting in Matli town of Sindh province yesterday. "We will not allow destruction of temples and other holy places of non-Muslims in the country," he warned.

The JuD chief rejected allegations that his organisation is promoting extremism in the Thar area of Sindh, which borders India, by opening seminaries in the poverty-stricken arid region.

Saeed also pledged support for Kashmiri Muslims, according to a Dawn report.

He said that the law enforcement agencies were sincerely trying to fight against anti-state actors and RAW agents, but the Nawaz Sharif government remained silent over it.
