Srinagar: Government of India has sent a note verbale to Pakistan in protest against the Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed addressing a gathering in Lahore on the occasion of ‘Kashmir Solidarity Day’.
In a note verbale, India registered a “strong protest” against the continued use of Pakistani soil by extremist elements to freely propagate and promote violence against India, The Indian Express reported.
The report quoting sources said that the Indian government once again called upon the Pakistani government to fulfil its international obligations and abide by its bilateral commitment to “not allow any territory under its control to be used for terrorism against India” in any manner.
On February 5, Saeed had taken part in the rally in Lahore as part of the ‘Kashmir Solidarity Day’.
India has, time and again, protested against Pakistan for harbouring Saeed, who is widely believed to have plotted the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks. New Delhi’s stand on Saeed has been supported by the international community.
