Hafiz Saeed's UNSC sanctioned pocket money seems biggest problem of Indian foreign policy?
NEW DELHI - Hafiz Saeed's UNSC sanctioned pocket money seems biggest problem of Indian foreign policy.
India has strongly objected to the JuD Chief Hafiz Saeed's pocket money authorised by the UN Security Council on Pakistan’s plea.
India on Friday said Pakistan's request to the UNSC's anti-terror committee to allow Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed to get "pocket money" from his bank account for basic expenses exposes Islamabad's duplicity.
The UNSC's sanctions committee last month had allowed Saeed to withdraw money from his bank account for basic expenses.
"One country gives an application on behalf of a global terrorist to UN Security Council's Sanctions Committee that he should be given pocket money. This is a weird situation," Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said.
Kumar said on one hand Pakistan requests to the UNSC for allowing Saeed to withdraw money for basic expenses from his bank account, while on the other hand it says the world does not believe that it is taking action against terrorists.
"How can anyone believe you (Pakistan). This is duplicity. On one hand, you say something and on the other hand you do another," Kumar said.
