Four days after social network giant Twitter suspended the account of Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed following request from Indian agencies, new Twitter accounts claiming to be Saeed’s from Pakistan have now come under scanner.
According to the latest reports, there are two news accounts @HafizSaeedHindi and @HafizSaeedNow have now become active following [email protected] account was suspended.
The United Nations declared JuD a terrorist organization in December 2008 as also Saeed who was also individually designated by the United Nations under UNSCR 1267 in December 2008.
Pakistan has said that there is no case against Saeed and that he is free to move in the country as a Pakistani national.
India has repeatedly demanded Pakistan to hand over Saeed for questioning over his role in the 2008 Mumbai attacks that claimed 166 lives.
JuD was banned in 2002 by Pakistan but later a court lifted the ban due to lack of evidence on the group’s involvement in militancy.
