New Delhi (UNN/EPakistanNews.com) The chief of the Pakistani organization, Jamaat-ud-Dawa, who is wanted by the US for his alleged role in the 2008 attacks in India’s Mumbai, has offered relief aid to the victims of Hurricane Sandy in the US.
Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, who has a US bounty of USD10-million on his head, announced in a Tuesday statement that Jamaat-ud-Dawa is ready to dispatch volunteers, medicine and food to those affected by the powerful storm that struck northeastern American shores on Monday.
“It is a religious duty under Islam to help Americans affected by the storm,” Saeed was quoted as explaining in his statement, stressing that he is ready to help the Americans even though the US has put a bounty on his head.
The Pakistani leader last attracted major global attention in April, when the US State Department issued a press release announcing a USD 10-million bounty on his head, despite the fact that Saeed was not in hiding. Saeed has been accused by the American and Indian governments of having being involved in the 2008 Mumbai terrorist incidents, which left some 160 people dead.
