Lashkar-e-Toiba wants Advani
Islamabad: In response to India's demand for extradition of mobster Dawood Ibrahim, Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) chief Hafiz Saeed and Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar, some Pakistani politicians as well as the religious wing of the banned LeT have said New Delhi should hand over certain "absconders" wanted in criminal cases, including former deputy prime minister LK Advani in return.
The issue was raised in a meeting called by Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani Tuesday to discuss the aftermath of the Mumbai attacks and Indian allegations of Pakistanis' involvement in the carnage.
While a majority of participants of the meeting pleaded for peace with India and adopting diplomatic channels to calm down the anger, "a couple of them suggested to take tough stand instead of an apologetic attitude", a participant of the meeting said.
Meanwhile, a statement posted on website of Jamaatul Dawah, a religious wing of the LeT said: "It will be entirely in accordance with international legal standards, as well as in accordance with the wishes of the people of Pakistan to demand the extradition of LK Advani and other Hindu terrorists."
