New Delhi: Jamaat-ud-Dawah chief Hafiz Mohammad Saeed , in a bid to boost the sagging morale of his fighters,  has said,  India will be forced to leave Kashmir, just like the US troops will leave Afghanistan this year.

Saeed was speaking at a local media workshop in Islamabad, organised by the Defence of Pakistan Council- an alliance of about 40 religious and political parties, that get funding from Pakistan's spy agency ISI.
 
Saeed said, “America never wanted to leave Afghanistan, but is now forced to leave it. It had long plans in Central Asia.

"It wanted to change the entire scenario in this region. It had plans to make this region its base and had further big aims. Now Allah has foiled its plans and now it has been forced to leave Afghanistan, then Inshallah, India will also have to leave Kashmir.”

Saeed's comments come at a time when the Nawaz Sharif government in Pakistan is gearing up to forge a deal on Kashmir with the new government in India that is expected to come in May this year, leaving the militants in the cold.

During former ruler Pervez Musharraf's time, the deal was on the verge of being closed with the Manmohan Singh government, but the ISI-backed militants carried out the 26/11 terror attacks on Mumbai.
 
Jamaat-ud-Dawah led by Hafiz Saeed is the so-called humanitarian wing of the banned militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba.Jamaat-ud-Dawah openly trains militants to fight in Kashmir.

Hafiz Saeed is the founder of the ISI-backed Lashkar-e-Tayyaba group which is banned in Pakistan and blacklisted by the United Nations. He is also the mastermind of 26/11 terror attacks on Mumbai that killed nearly 300 innocent people.

The United States has offered $10 million for information leading to his arrest and conviction, though Hafiz Saeed openly travels around Pakistan with securitymen in tow.
