POLICE IN Faislabad city of Pakistan has registered two FIRs against Lashkar-E-Taiba chief Hafiz Saeed, apparently for making anti-government speeches, though it is believed that the step was taken by authorities to defuse the American and Indian pressure. Police has lodged complaints against Saeed for urging activists of Jamaat-ud-Dawa to wage Jehad.

Although the police has registered the case but the terror mastermind, who has been accused of orchestrating the Mumbai attack has not been arrested. Police officials said that they were still waiting for instructions from top authorities.

Police has charged Saeed with collecting donations for Jamaat-ud-Dawa, which has been banned in Pakistan. Saeed had visited Faisalabad on August 27 and 28, and urged people to wage jehad.

However, it is likely that the Lashkar chief might be detained or arrested as the government is under lot of pressure from the United States to act against him. In addition, the Indian government has refused to resume peace talks with Pakistan unless action is taken against the Mumbai terror masterminds.
