Recently released Jamaatud Dawa (JD) chief Hafiz Saeed said that India is violating the global human rights laws using "chemical weapons" against Kashmiris to suppress their freedom struggle.

It should be noted that the LeT is banned in Pakistan since 2002.

Over Washington's official statement on Hafiz Saeed, he said the statement was written in a highly offensive language and termed it an "insult to Pakistan's sovereignty".

Pervez Musharraf, the former army chief of Pakistan has said that he is the biggest supporter of Lashkar-e-Toiba and added that they like him too.

While acknowledging that terror outfits like JuD and LeT are waging a "jihad" for the liberation of Kashmir from India, the former Pakistan president said, "Yes, they are involved in Kashmir and I support them".

Pakistan's former president General Pervez Musharraf said he is the "biggest supporter" of Lashkar-e-Taiba and accepted that the militant group is active in the Kashmir valley.

"Ridiculous-Not only did Pakistan give refuge to Bin Laden, responsible for attacks against U.S. on 9/11, Pakistan set free a terrorist who has a $10 million American bounty on his head".

"They (LeT) are the biggest force".

Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed's son-in-law Khalid Waleed on Tuesday dared India to prove allegations or "stop crying". "They are the biggest force (LeT), India got them declared as terrorist by partnering with the USA". "The Hafiz Saeed issue is an issue in India, not in the United States".

Saeed, the co-founder of LeT and Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) chief, was freed by the Lahore High Court (LHC) after 297 days of house arrest. Speaking on Pakistan's ARY News, Musharraf also said he liked the global terrorist, JuD chief Hafiz Saeed, and that he had met him.

Saeed was also put under house arrest after Mumbai terror attacks in November 2008 but he was freed by a court in 2009.

Though a new ombudsperson has not been appointed yet, the office remains operational and is accepting new delisting requests during the transition period, the United Nations said in a statement on its website.
