Islamabad, June5 : Mumbai terror attack mastermind and Jammat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed was not allowed to lead Eid-ul-Fitr prayers at Lahore’s famous Gaddafi stadium on Wednesday by Pakistani authorities.

Saeed was informed by an official of the Punjab government in advance that he would not be allowed to lead the prayers at the stadium. He was also told that if he goes ahead with his plan then the government might arrest him.

From the past many years, Saeed has been leading prayers on Eid-ul Fitr and Eid-ul Azha at the Gaddafi Stadium with full support from the local authorities and even received additional securi ty from the Pakistani government.

Saeed had been using such events to issue anti-India slogans and further his Kashmir propaganda in front of the people assembled in the stadium during festivals.
