â€œThe Pakistani government and opposition on Thursday united in criticism of a newly announced $10 million American bounty for Hafiz Saeed, a militant leader accused of orchestrating the 2008 attacks in Mumbai,â€ Salman Masood writes in The New York Times. During a heated session of Parliament, lawmakers demanded that Washington provide proof of Mr. Saeedâ€™s terrorist credentials, Mr. Masood writes. Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani warned that the American reward, which was announced by a senior State Department official in India on Monday, was a â€œnegative messageâ€ and would â€œfurther widen the trust deficitâ€ between the two countries,â€ he writes. Opposition lawmakers said the American offer of $10 million for information leading to the capture or arrest of Mr. Saeed, who is accused of leading the militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba and who lives openly in the eastern city of Lahore, was â€œmind bogglingâ€ and â€œridiculous.â€ â€œToday, Hafiz Saeed has been targeted. Tomorrow, any other ordinary Pakistani citizen can get the same treatment,â€ said Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, the leader of the opposition in the national assembly.
