Pakistani Terrorist Offers Post-Sandy Aid, U.S. Turns Him Down
The Pakistani terrorist leader, and accused mastermind of 2008 attacks on Mumbai that killed over 160 people, sent out a written statement Wednesday (Oct. 31) offering up both supplies and volunteers to help in the post-storm relief efforts.“We are ready to send food items, medicines and doctors to the U.S. for the people affected by the storm,” he said. “America [may] fix bounties on our heads but as followers of the teachings of the Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him), we feel it is our Islamic duty to help Americans trapped in a catastrophe.”
Saeed had a $10 million bounty placed on his head by the U.S. State Department, last year, to which he responded: “I am here, I am visible, America should give that reward money to me.”
He received the denial to his aid offer from the U.S. Embassy in Pakistan, via a Twitter. “We respect the Islamic tradition of help to the needy, but we can't take Hafiz Saeed's offer seriously.”
More than 25 years ago, Saeed founded Lashkar-e-Taiba, a group which has been condemned by the Pakistani government. He still heads the organization's charity wing, Jamaat ud Dawa.
