New Delhi, Feb 15: Reacting on Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh's statement on JNU protest, LeT founder Hafiz Saeed said that alleging him for JNU protests "based on a fake twitter account is a prime example of how Indian government fools its own people".
Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday said the demonstration on the JNU campus to mark the hanging of parliament attack convict Afzal Guru received "support" from Lashkar-e-Taiba founder Hafiz Saeed. His remark sparked a political uproar with opposition leaders asking him to furnish evidence.
A twitter account with his name Hafiz Saeed on Sunday posted: "Alleging me for #JNU protest based on a Fake account in my name is a prime example of how Indian government fools its own people."
"Reality of all Indian allegations, including 26/11 is evident from this fake twitter account scandal. Indeed a new low for Indian govt," said another tweet posted.
One of the posts also said, "Pakistan's ideology is resonating from Srinagar to Delhi, can't hide reality. Kashmiris are writing history with their determination."
National Conference leader and former chief minister Omar Abdullah said it is a "very serious charge" to level against the students and that the evidence must be shared with all.
Rajnath Singh on Sunday told reporters that what happened at Jawaharlal Nehru University had the support of LeT chief Hafiz Saeed and it was very unfortunate.
On the night of February 9, some students organised a meet at JNU to mourn the hanging of parliament attack convict Afzal Guru and Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front co-founder Maqbool Bhat. Anti-India slogans were allegedly raised at the gathering.
Delhi Police registered a sedition case on Thursday and arrested Kanhaiya Kumar. He was sent to three days police custody on Friday although he denied raising the slogans.
