Lahore, May 12 (ANI): Jamaat-e-Islami chief Syed Munawar Hasan has said that the allegations made by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton against Pakistan regarding Osama bin Laden and Taliban supremo Mullah Umar amount to a blatant insult to the government, people and the armed forces.

Clinton had accused that there were people in the Pakistani Government who knew the whereabouts of bin Laden and Mullah Omar, and asked Islamabad to increase cooperation to capture or kill all the attackers of 9/11.

In a statement on Tuesday, the JI chief stressed upon Islamabad to protest against Hilary's statements and also announce pulling out of this "crusade" against al-Qaeda and the Taliban, telling Washington that "enough is enough."

Syed Munawar Hasan said former US President George W Bush had blamed bin Laden for the 9/11 tragedy without any investigation and had announced that Osama would be captured soon, dead or alive.

He said the US, despite its latest technology and resources, had failed to get hold of bin Laden during the last nine years and was now putting the blame on Pakistan only to hide its embarrassment, The News reports.

He also said that Faisal Shahzad's drama was also staged to intensify pressure on Islamabad.

He said even if Faisal Shahzad was involved in the Time Square plot, there was no reason to blame Pakistan for an individual's act and issue threats on this count. (ANI)
