Islamabad : Lashkar-e-Toiba founder Hafiz Saeed has severely criticised the Indian government’s decision to hike the price of petrol by Rs. 7.50. According to intercepts picked up by RAW, Saeed, who is most wanted in India for the 26/11 terror attack, has said the sharp increase will result in an additional annual burden of 8 crore rupees for the terror outfit for its India operations.
“This is totally undemocratic. This Hindoostani sarkar is completely nikammi. We will have to sell off those 0-60 in 5 seconds kind of fast bikes which our boys use for planting bombs in crowded market areas. Instead, let us invest in two-wheelers which give good mileage. Do an all-India bulk deal,” Hafiz Saeed reportedly told his top aides.
Another option, Hafiz Saeed is considering is printing more Indian notes and smuggling them into the country. One of his aides however, has gone on record saying, there is already a lot of pressure on the printing presses in Pakistan and Bangladesh.
“Also seeing Mahatma Gandhi’s photograph day in and day out has influenced some of our printing press jehadis so much that they are now reading his autiobiography, `My experiments with truth’. Hafiz bhai should counsel them to read about his experiments instead,” he said.
The Intelligence Bureau has also received inputs that Pak-based terror organisations are planning to infiltrate the petrol market. “These outfits see petrol selling as the sunrise industry in India and among the fastest growing sectors. Therefore, LeT, HuJi, JeM want to plant their own men at different petrol bunks so that if they want, they can bring india to a standstill one day,” sources in the IB told Tenali Rama.
Hafiz Saeed, reportedly is pinning his hopes on a rollback and has asked the sleeper cells in India to take a break till there is some respite from the high inflation in India.
