Islamabad: Pakistan's banned terror outfit Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed and some other terrorists have challenged the terrorism financing case registered against him in the Lahore High Court. A report published in Pakistani media said that among the other terrorists who have challenged the terror case registered against Saeed, the dreaded terrorist Abdur Rahman Makki, Aamir Hamza, M. Yahya Aziz and four others are involved.
All of them have made the accused a defendant to The Central Government of Pakistan, the Government of Punjab Province and the Country's Counter Terrorism Department (CTD). All of them have sought dismissal of the FIR lodged against them in their petition. The petition said Hafiz Saeed has nothing to do with Lashkar-e-Taiba, Al Qaeda or other terrorist organisations like the is.
They have never been involved in any action against the state. In a petition, the counter-terrorists blamed the Indian lobby for the cases registered against them, saying that Saeed's "Indian lobby" for the Mumbai terror attacks was not based on reality. Earlier this month, Punjab's CTD had registered 23 cases against Saeed and 12 other associates in a terror funding case.
