Minutes after the siege on Karachi airport, Hafiz Saeed, chief of the Jamat-ud-Dawah, took to Twitter to blame India and Narendra Modi's "new security team" for the attack.
The spectacle at #KarachiAirport is Modi's plan against Pakistan. Direct response of needless appeasement of new 'Hindutva' Government.— Jamat 'ud' Da'wah (@JuD_Official) June 8, 2014
#KarachiAirport is an attack on Pakistan. Modi's new security team is behind this act of war by India. Nation knows the real enemy.— Hafiz Muhammad Saeed (@HafizSaeedJUD) June 9, 2014
He also went on to say that Pakistan "must end exchange of gifts with India".
We condemn horrendous act of terrorism at #KarachiAirport in severe words. Government must end exchange of gifts with India; show spine.— Hafiz Muhammad Saeed (@HafizSaeedJUD) June 9, 2014
