Pakistan releases militant wanted by US

Pakistan frees Hafiz Saeed, alleged mastermind of Mumbai attacks

But earlier reports had said the judges rejected the government's plea to extend Saeed's house arrest for three more months (See: Hafiz a global terrorist, reiterates United States after release from house arrest).

The Punjab Home Department was against the release of Hafiz Saeed.

He said that after a long deliberation, it has been chose to follow the review board's decision. Saeed allegedly devised the plot in which coordinated gunfire and bombing attacks in Mumbai killed at least 166 people, including American citizens, in 2008. I fight for the cause of Kashmiris.

"You took oath to defend Pakistan and Kashmir, you betrayed the people of Kashmir".

On Thursday, India condemned the decision of the Pakistani court to release Saeed from house arrest.

"India, as indeed the entire global community, is outraged that a self-confessed and a United Nations proscribed terrorist is allowed to walk free and continue with his evil agenda", Raveesh Kumar, India's foreign ministry spokesperson, told reporters at a weekly briefing in New Delhi on Thursday.

A JuD spokesman said Saeed had "no links with terrorism" and argued that the U.S. comments amounted to interference in Pakistan's internal affairs.

"The principled and consistent stand of the government is that Jammu & Kashmir is an integral part of India. I tell him he was ousted because he committed treason against Pakistan by developing friendship with (Indian Prime Minister Narendra) Modi", he said, warning the PML (N) government not to "take dictation from the USA and other countries and take its own decisions".

Saeed has been detained periodically by the Pakistani government since the 2008 attacks in Mumbai. "The US did so on the request of India", he claimed.

He had been on house arrest since January in the eastern city of Lahore.

"We are happy to see our leader free", JuD spokesman Ahmad Nadim said.

Hafiz Saeed addressed supporters at his Johar Town residence in Lahore in which he vowed to continue his struggle to free Kashmir from India.

Last month, the board had allowed a 30-day extension to the detention of Saeed which will expire next week. Nine of the attackers were killed by police while the lone survivor, Ajmal Kasab, was caught and executed after a court found him guilty.

The State Department called on Pakistan to arrest a cleric accused of masterminding a 2008 terrorist attack in India after his release from detention Friday.
