In a fresh attack against the Pakistani government, Jammat-ud-Dawah (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed slammed the government for not bringing in Islamic rule in the country.

According to ANI, Saeed while addressing an event had said:

They have started this work by finishing the message of Prophet Muhammad. Let us unite and pledge that we would not let it happen.

Blaming Israel and US for the political chaos in the country, Saeed said that after losing a war in Afghanistan, Israel had now turned its focus on to Pakistan, and America was executing ‘Israel’s agenda effectively.’

“The unity that I am seeing today here is good but we need bigger and better unity and start a revolution. We have to stand up and do something better for Islam and Pakistan,” he added.

The UN-designated latest criticism against the government comes days after Pakistan banned JuD and its affiliates from taking donations. The Pakistan government’s move to cut off funds is seen as a reaction to the US’ decision to suspend military aid to the country owing to their ‘inaction towards terrorism’ stemming from their grounds.

The 26/11 mastermind meanwhile is set to contest the Pakistan general elections later this year. He was recently released from house arrest after a Pakistani court said that there was ‘a lack of evidence’ against him in the 26/111 Mumbai attacks.
