New Delhi, Feb.4 (ANI): While India and Pakistan are preparing to tone down the heightened tension amid them during the forthcoming SAARC summit, in which Home Minister P.Chidambaram is likely to take part, anti-India Jehadi organisations are organising a meet in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK).

India is concerned over the 'terror' meeting, first since the 26/11 attacks, and believes that the banned extremist organisations such as the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), Hizbul Mujahideen may use the gathering at Muzaffarabad to plan the next big attack on it.

However, former Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Hamid Gul has rejected New Delhi's apprehensions, saying it should learn to distinguish between terrorists and 'freedom fighters'.

"Why should we worry about India?The meet is for a very important human cause. If India feels unhappy about it, let them. It's high time that India feels unhappy. The Pakistan government is aware of it. We don't have to clarify everything with India. Pakistan has the right too. Pakistan and India have to make distinctions between terrorists and freedom fighters. India has to understand that this is a freedom movement," Gul told private television channel, TimesNow.

Various top jehadi leaders including Hizb-ul-Mujahideen commander Syed Salahuddin, Jammat-ud-Dawa (JuD), the front face of the banned LeT, leader Abdul Rehman Makki are expected to attend the meeting to be held today (February 4).

There is no information over whether the JuD chief Hafeez Muhammed Saeed would attend the meeting or not. (ANI)
