China - a close defense and economic ally of Pakistan - has time and again vetoed moves led by India in the United Nations to declare Saeed and Jaish-e-Mohammad Chief Maulana Masood Azhar as "terrorists".

They described the action against Saeed as a result of "foreign pressure". Exercises such as yesterdays orders against Hafiz Saeed and others have been carried out by Pakistan in the past also. "Only a credible crack down on the mastermind of the Mumbai terrorist attack and terrorist organisations involved in cross border terrorism would be proof of Pakistan's sincerity", MEA spokesperson Vikas Swarup had said. He has vowed to continue his work and claims his detention was the result on pressure from new U.S. President Donald Trump's administration, his associates say.

Hundreds of supporters of arrested Jamat-ud-Dawah founder Hafiz Saeed on Tuesday staged protests across major cities of Pakistan, including Lahore and Islamabad, against the government's decision to place the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks alleged mastermind under house arrest.

"This is a policy decision that the state took in national interest".

"Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, Abdullah Ubaid, Zafar Iqbal, Abdur Rehman Abid and Qazi Kashif Niaz are reportedly active members of the aforementioned organisations within the meaning of Section 11EEE (1) of the ATA 1997 (as amended)".

Pakistan's Federal Commerce Minister Khurram Dastgir on Wednesday said a First Information Report would be filed against Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed.

Saeed's arrest has been long sought by both the Indian and the American government.

According to Indian officials, "Pakistan has played the game of putting him under arrest whenever there has been worldwide pressure, and then releasing him after the pressure eases off, mostly after court's orders".

Maj Gen Ghafoor said Pakistan wants peace with India and resolution of all issues including Kashmir through talks held on the basis of self-respect and honour, but it should not be considered as weakness. If Washington is serious that it's not moving against Muslims as such but only against countries and entities that promote extremism and terrorism, it should ask Islamabad what steps it is taking not only against the JuD but also the LeT and a host of other deadly outfits that are nurtured by the ISI. The Lahore high court had ordered his release in June 2009 after the government failed to establish a case against him.
