Nation at 9: LeT chief Hafeez Saeed trained me, confressed terrorist Sajjad

For years altogether Pakistan has been telling us and anyone around the world who cares to listen that Hafeez Saeed was the head of a NGO or spiritual organization called the Jamaat Ud Dawa. For years altogether in the name of providing moral & political support to the Kashmir cause Hafeez Saeed has been allowed to make the most poisonous remarks against India. In fact his spiritual side has also exhorted him to call for Jihad against India. Even when India has linked him to terror plots Pakistan has reacted with wide eyed astonishment. 
Today, Pakistan's bluff has been called, not by India or even the United States but by a terrorist who has incriminated Hafeez Saeed linking him to anti India terror plots. On your screens is a 18 second long clip of an unprecedented confession that Pakistan will find very hard to disown. For one, the confession of Saeed's acolyte in Indian custody proves it beyond a pale of doubt that Pakistan's been lying about cracking down on terror to India & the world. 
Second, Sajjad's confession shows exactly how the Pak state is involved in the training, funding & operations of those it calls non state actors. But perhaps the most severe consequence of terrorist Sajjad's confession for Pakistan is that its carefully constructed charade of a crackdown on Hafeez Saeed - the chief architect of 26/11 Mumbai Attacks - is now completely untenable. Will Pakistan handover Saeed now?
