New Delhi, Mar 5: Minister of State for External Affairs Preneet Kaur on Friday, Mar 5, said that Pakistan should consider action against JuD chief and 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed.
Speaking to reporters, Kaur said, "We have reiterated again and again that he (Saeed) is part of Jamat-ud-Dawa that has been, under the UN rules, declared as one of the banned outfits. We are sorry that they are not taking it into consideration."
She was replying to a question when asked to why the name of either Saeed or his outfit was not part of the Prime Minister's reply in the Lok Sabha.
"We have given the dossiers which they are refusing to accept as enough evidence," the minister said.
"But we will continue to request that they take his name into consideration and the organisations he is involved with so that they can deal with the perpetrators (of the Mumbai terror strikes) in a proper manner," the minister added.
On Thursday, Mar 4, Pakistan said that it will not arrest Hafiz Saeed on the basis of new dossiers from India.
