    “The 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,” Salman Masood writes in The New York Times. During a heated session of Parliament, lawmakers demanded that Washington provide proof of Mr. Saeed’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 “negative message” and would “further widen the trust deficit” between the two countries,” 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 “mind boggling” and “ridiculous.”

    “Today, Hafiz Saeed has been targeted. Tomorrow, any other ordinary Pakistani citizen can get the same treatment,” said Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, the leader of the opposition in the national assembly.

    Amazing that it is US offering bounty!Why is Delhi imploring Islamabad to prosecute or extradite Saeed?That will never work because Saeed is only doing what his ISI handlers are instructing him to do.The question also arises who is really behind jihadi groups like LeT and Taliban.Saeed is merely the messenger.Every school boy in India knows that it is ISI.To go back further - it was when Gen. Hamid Gul ran ISI that the jihadi ideology was enunciated and perfected.That is the only way Pakistan could fight India after Bangladesh fiasco.Proxy war.Pakistan was no match in coventional war.Gul is a brilliant strategist.Unfortunately he is also a committed Islamofascist,anti-Semite and India(Hindu) hater.More than anyone else this man is the inspiration and creator of jihadist movement in Pakistan.Gul is also responsible for turning ISI into a radicalised anti-US.antisemitic,anti-India Islamofascist organisation .The task ahead for US,Israel and India is to chop off the snake's head.Saeed is just a loud mouth front for Gul's movement.
