Terrorist Hafiz Saeed was arrested for terrorist funding. It is believed that this action of Pakistan is merely a show-off. The move by Pakistan Government is being considered as the result of pressure from the Financial Action Task Force (FATF). Pakistan is afraid of being blacklisted by FATF.
Public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam has termed the arrest of Hafiz Saeed as the drama of Pakistan. He said that Pakistan is fooling the world that he has arrested Hafiz Saeed. We have to now see what evidence the Pakistan court brings to convict Hafiz Saeed.
