New Delhi, Nov 28: Mumbai terror attack mastermind and Jamaat Ud Dawah head, the man behind most terror activities across the globe has now gone to United Nations as he wants his name removed from the List of Terroists.  Hafiz Saeed has petitioned the UN to get his name struck off the list of terrorists proscribed by the world body. Just a couple of day's back he was freed from house arrest in Pakistan by a Pakistani court. India, along with other countries is not at all happy with this development and India especially is keeping a close watch on all major developments related to Hafeez. Sources also say that he now wants to enter politics to legalize his nefarious designs. After the US, France has also conveyed its anguish to Pakistan over the release of Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed, who heads the UN- proscribed outfit Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) French diplomatic sources said here that Paris has conveyed its deep concern to Pakistan over the release of Saeed whose outfit was listed as a terror group by the Sanctions Committee of the UN They said France and India will continue their "relentless" efforts to combat terrorism, and enhancing cooperation to deal with the menace will be an important aspect of French President Emmanuel Macron's visit here in early 2018 In a strong reaction, India on Friday expressed outrage over Saeed's release, calling it an attempt by Pakistan to mainstream proscribed terrorists and a reflection of its continuing support to non-state actors On Saturday, the US also demanded immediate re-arrest and prosecution of Saeed, warning Islamabad that there would be "repercussions" for bilateral ties if it fails to take "decisive action" against the notorious terrorist The banned JuD head, who carries a USD 10 million American bounty on his head for terror activities, walked free on Friday after the Pakistan government decided against detaining him further in any other case He was under house arrest since January this year.
