Hafiz Saeed not to be arrested: Malik


Interior Minister Rehman Malik said on Thursday that Jamaat ul Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed would not be arrested as there were no concrete evidences against him.
He said this while addressing an inauguration ceremony of Passport Office and talking to media in Dera Allah Yar.
He added that it was strange that the US State Department had offered a bounty of millions of dollars to arrest Saeed and his deputy Abdul Rahman Makki without solid evidences against them. He said that the US was violating international laws by attacking on the sovereignty of Pakistan.
Talking about the Balochistan issue, the minister urged the people of Balochistan to partake in the progress of Pakistan.
The mischief-mongering elements were dancing to the tune of enemies of Pakistan; Malik noted adding Sardar Akhtar Mengal and workers were set free after the cases lodged against them were abolished.
The friends who are sitting abroad should come back to Pakistan and have talks; he said adding Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) wanted consensus politics in the country. He said, “Even today, I invite Brahamdagh Bugti to sit and have talks with us.”
He said there were only 47 persons who were missing while some of them were from Kandahar Camps and their list would also be displayed soon.
Moreover, the federal minister said it was the responsibility of the provincial government to offer relief to the people adding, ‘I direct the concerned authorities to double the number of passports in Naseerabad division.
