Islamabad, May 4: Chief of Pakistan's banned Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), Hafiz Saeed, has said his organisation will not allow destruction of Hindu temples and other holy places of non- Muslims in the country.

It was Muslims' responsibility to safeguard holy places of their Hindus brethren, he said while addressing a meeting in Matli town of Sindh province earlier this week.

"We will not allow destruction of temples and other holy places of non-Muslims in the country," he warned.

The Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief rejected allegations that his organisation is promoting extremism in Thar area of Sindh, which borders India, by opening seminaries in the poverty- stricken arid region.

Saeed also pledged support for Kashmiri Muslims, according to a Dawn report.

He said the law enforcement agencies were sincerely trying to fight against anti-state actors and RAW agents but the Nawaz Sharif government remained silent over it.

US has listed Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD)as a "foreign terrorist organisation" while Western officials regard it as a front for Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), the militant group that carried out 2008 Mumbai attacks that killed 166 people.
