    Saeed asked to keep low profile: Says aide

    ISLAMABAD: Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed has turned down a ‘request’ from the government to limit his public appearances and activities after the United States announced a $10 million ‘bounty’ on him earlier this month.

    Associates of Hafiz Saeed told The Express Tribune that government agencies ‘advised’ him not to participate in public rallies for the time being.
    However, Senator Pervez Rasheed, the spokesperson for the Punjab government, said he was not aware of any such request made by the government.
    Saeed’s aides said the suggestion was made because the government fears that his continued appearances might draw a hostile reaction from the US. They, however, said Saeed was adamant and would not accept any such demand.
    They added that Saeed was planning to address a rally organised by the Defence of Pakistan Council (DPC) in Quetta later this week to mobilise the masses against the possible reopening of Nato supply routes.
