Lahore: The Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) chief and Mumbai attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed today urged Pakistan government to suspend trade with India and ban bollywood movies in the country.

The development comes following his provoking speech at a prayer meet to commemorate Hizbul commander Burhan Wani in Lahore on Tuesday. Kashmir has been on the boil following Wani’s killing in an encounter with Indian security forces.

In the wake of killing of Hizbul commander, he told a press conference at JuD headquarters in Chauburji in Pakistan, “We don’t need potato and onion trade with India.”

“Pakistan should call its ambassador back from India and expel its from Islamabad,” the Lashkar-e-Taiba founder said, claiming Pakistan is an advocate of Kashmiris and this gesture will give Kashmiris a boost.

Saeed, on whose head the US has put a bounty of USD 10 million, also said “screening of Indian movies in Pakistan should be banned forthwith as these are hurting the sentiments of people of Pakistan in the wake of killings in Kashmir”.
