Akbaruddin also added that only justice waits for the evil mastermind of 26/11 Mumbai attacks mastermind. “Hafiz Saeed is somebody India will never forgive or forget. What waits for him is justice. You can be certain, sometime or the other, justice will be met,” Akbaruddin said in his statement.

“We will never forget his role as the evil mastermind of what happened in Mumbai,” Akbaruddin added. India has provided a number of dossiers of evidence, maintaining that the bilateral relations cannot improve until Pakistan punishes all those involved in the crime.
