Reality of Pakistan "Hafiz Saeed is real PM, Syed Salahuddin is the real Defence Minister"

New Delhi: Hafiz Saeed, Chief of Jamaat-ud-Dawa and founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba, is the "real Prime Minister of Pakistan" and Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin is the "real Defence Minister of Pakistan". These are not views of any Indian, but those of Pakistan-born Canadian author Tarek Fatah. He added that the creation of Pakistan in the existing geographical landscape was erroneous.Fatah also said, "Pakistan is an acronym, it is not a country in itself... Pakistan was a joke played on all of us"

Fatah who is also a broadcaster, liberal activist and founder of the Muslim Canadian Congress, said Balochistan "was independent" and was only "forcibly occupied" by the Pakistan Army in 1947.

Detailing Hafiz Saeed's atrocities, Fateh said, "I don't know why you people in India are into so much deep philosophy that you fail to see who is running the country. Jamaat-ud-Dawa has massacred 30 lakh Bengalis in 10 months, they can throw Baloch young men from aircraft, rape young girls". Fatah, who was born in Karachi, said in an interview to an Indian TV channel. (IANS)
