Hafiz Saeed, the founder of Pakistani militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), today warned that violence in Indian-ruled Kashmir will escalate.

Saeed, designated a terrorist by the United States with a USD 10 million bounty on his head, also told AP that he will lead nationwide demonstrations in Pakistan to force its government to sever ties with the US if it cannot convince Washington to intervene in the decades old Kashmir dispute.

The US-declared terrorist group LeT is suspected of carrying out the 2008 Mumbai terror attack and was banned in Pakistan in 2015 but Saeed travels freely and gives speeches inciting people to attack Western and Indian interests.

Indian government has long demanded Islamabad arrest Saeed.
