Lahore: A Pakistani man has handed over his three young sons to Jamaat-ud-Dawah chief Hafiz Saeed for ‘jihad'.

Abu Haider, a JuD activist, handed over his three sons to Saeed at a workers' convention yesterday in Nankana Sahib, about 80 kilometres from Lahore.

“I hand over my three young sons to you for jihad (holy war). They will be now on your hands in your struggle,” Haider said.

Saeed appreciated Haider's act and called him a “brave father”.

“Jihad is never waged against Muslims. It is against infidels. The infighting among Muslims is not jihad from any one group,” Saeed said.

Jamaat-ud-Dawa is the parent body of banned terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba that carried out the 2008 Mumbai attacks in which 166 people were killed.

There is no formal ban on the JuD and its chief Saeed, who lives freely in Lahore despite a 10-million dollar bounty offered for him by the US.
