ISLAMABAD: Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, one of the main accused in the Mumbai attacks case, was granted bail on Thursday by an anti-terrrorism court.

The Federal Investigation Agency's prosecutor disagreed with the bail plea. However, Advocate Rizwan Abbasi, the lawyer representing Lakhvi, stood before the court as the bail was approved.

The court has directed Lakhvi to pay surety bonds worth Rs500,000 before he can be released on bail.

Lakhvi is among the seven persons charged with planning and helping carry out the 2008 Mumbai attacks. The six other men facing trial in Adiala Jail for their alleged involvement in Mumbai attacks are Hammad Amin Sadiq, Shahid Jamil Riaz, Younas Anjum, Jamil Ahmed, Mazhar Iqbal and Abdul Majid.

At the time of the attacks, Lakhvi was believed to be the operational head of the banned Laskhar-i-Taiba (LeT) that has been accused by India of carrying out the attacks in India's financial capital.

Lakhvi along with Zarar Shah was allegedly the key planner of the attack that killed 166 people.

The acceptance of his bail plea came as Pakistan is mourning the deaths of school children and other victims of Tuesday's Taliban massacre and New Delhi has made a visible effort to show solidarity with Islamabad.

The proceedings of the case began in 2009 at the ATC in Rawalpindi and the case was transferred to the ATC in Islamabad the next year.

In April this year however, proceedings came to a virtual standstill as special judge of the ATC expressed his inability to conduct the trial of the seven suspects due to security reasons. This came following a terrorist attack on the district courts in Islamabad in the month of March.

Outrage in India after ATC grants bail

According to a report by The Times of India, India reacted very strongly on the bail granted to the LeT commander.

In a statement, the Indian Home Ministry said, "It's very unfortunate, especially as it comes just after the Peshawar massacre. Pakistan must appeal in the next court. Pakistan needs to show more seriousness in taking 26/11 case trial to its logical conclusion."

Indian foreign ministry spokesman Syed Akbaruddin said the decision to grant bail to Lakhvi was “a reassurance to terrorists who perpetuate heinous crimes”.

“We cannot accept that LeT's chief operations commander, Lakhvi, one of the key conspirators of the Mumbai terror attacks... a person designated as international terrorist by UN security council, is released on bail," Akbaruddin said.

“We call upon Pakistan to immediately take steps to reverse this decision," he told journalists in Delhi.

Nothing changes...

Waseem Dec 18, 2014 02:34pm

isn't terrorism a non-bailable offence?

Ur neighbour Dec 18, 2014 02:36pm

Disgrace to humanity!!!!

Zedex Dec 18, 2014 02:38pm

This is a shame. We should learn from the fresh massacre of school children...

Prabhat Prasoon Dec 18, 2014 02:38pm

Looks like Govt. will not learn..

vijay chennai Dec 18, 2014 02:39pm

now pak is back to its old game. RIP#peshawarkids

wld Dec 18, 2014 02:39pm

Very Good. One side,they are fighting so called bad terroists and another side,they are supporting good terroists.

Good Policy

som Dec 18, 2014 02:40pm

You must be joking!!

Ali Rathore Dec 18, 2014 02:40pm

how can you give bail to a person in such a high profile case? :S

concerned Dec 18, 2014 02:40pm

It's sad but looks nothing will change in attitude

ysk Dec 18, 2014 02:43pm

Not the best time to take a step backward into gutter

Waqar Dec 18, 2014 02:43pm

We will never learn...

Khan Dec 18, 2014 02:43pm

intentions clear on Pakistani side after RAW killed our children

Alex Dec 18, 2014 02:43pm

Now what should i expect???? No lesson learned. Repeat mistakes over and over. good taliban became bad taliban after attacks on pakistan. And lashkar-e-roiba will become bad only if it carries attacks on pakistan in future. They are good till they target only india!!!!!!!

Sam Dec 18, 2014 02:44pm

Will anything change in Pakistan?

Shobit Gupta Dec 18, 2014 02:44pm

To every pakistani :

Is your blood and our blood different ? 70% Pakistanis will say No because they are normal human beings but there are some 30% who will disagree.

They will kill you, us and everyone... When a country defends terrorists, how can thy not get affected themselves ? do you disagree... India mourned attack on such cute kids but look at what your army and establishment is doing !!! It hurts as an Indian when Hafiz Sayed threatens and abuses on PTV and GEO News ..

Change this !!!

From India Dec 18, 2014 02:44pm

...and thus began Pakistan's war on terror...

Naqvi R. Dec 18, 2014 02:44pm

What?? Are we forgetting the Peshawar incident? It was the same thing in Mumbay as Peshawar and we are releasing the accused. Shame.

Rahi mila Dec 18, 2014 02:45pm

This is bad news. He should be behind bars forever.

Waseem Dec 18, 2014 02:45pm

really? sounds like a timely massage of resolve to fight terrorism. I always wonder, if our institution take any decision on time ever?

Nikunj Dec 18, 2014 02:46pm

And your prime minister says we won't differentiate between good terrorism and bad terrorism.

Gary Garcha Dec 18, 2014 02:46pm

WoW! What a message to the terrorists after the Peshawar Massacre of innocent children. instead of reigning in these monsters you are setting more of them free to feed on the blood of more innocent children. I don't think anything will change in Pakistan inspite of this huge tragedy. Terrorist are still state assets and there are still good and bad terrorists in Pakistan. R.I.P. humanity.

Wellwisher Dec 18, 2014 02:46pm

No lesson learned even after the massacre

Veer Dec 18, 2014 02:47pm

This is doublespeak? Pakistan still haven't learned many more innocent lives need to be lost??? WAKE UP PAK....

Sane Indian Dec 18, 2014 02:48pm

We are deeply pained by what happened Peshawar & most of us in India are still in a state of mourning...But this news has undone the feeling of warmth we were trying to share with people of Pakistan... we are feeling cheated with this news and we have lost innocent lives in Mumbai...this release is going to be cancerous for the relationship.. We feel the Pakistani Judiciary is still naïve on crime against humanity and innocent human being even after the drastic event....WHY!

haq Dec 18, 2014 02:48pm

@Zedex we are fast learners. We know which agencies funds TTP and where they get the weapons and cash. We are coming after you!

Vikas Dec 18, 2014 02:48pm

Shameful!!! Pakistan has learned absolutely nothing from the slaughter of 146 kids. Just a day after the massacre, they have started releasing terrorists. Makes me doubt Pakistan's seriousness for fighting terrorism.

Prerak Sheth Dec 18, 2014 02:48pm

Very nice gesture. Afghanistan must act against Mulla Fazallullah, but Pakistan will not only not act, but will set free the accused of terrorism in India. Bravo!

Manav Dec 18, 2014 02:48pm

For Shame. The murders of Peshawar's children are barely a couple of days old. Has Pakistan learned nothing from its own tragedy? If you don't care to see justice done for your neighbors, why should your neighbors help you get justice for you?

sidhartha Dec 18, 2014 02:49pm

wow!! !!!! now this is what Pakistan's blueprint to completely alleviate terror from Pakistan...I knew this...soon or later Pakistani government will show its real hafeez saeed said.. let be ready for more terror strikes...thanks Pakistan government...

Urooj Saifi Dec 18, 2014 02:50pm


jaatboy Dec 18, 2014 02:50pm

and then Pakistani people say why are we so vitriolic towards them ??? what message will it send to the civilians tweeting #indiawithpakistan.

neeraj Dec 18, 2014 02:50pm

on the one hand, the whole pakistan talks about eliminating extremists and militants, on the other hand,lakhvi gets bail and hafis sayed roams free. If a lesson is still not learnt after peshavar, then the day is not far when taliban will take over pakistan.

Saad Dec 18, 2014 02:50pm

Shame shame shame. Bail should not be applicable to terrorists. Its not their right.

Citizen Dec 18, 2014 02:51pm

A day after India observes 2 minutes of silence for our slain, we release the murderer of their slain.

Omair Dec 18, 2014 02:51pm

What a shame!

Sam Dec 18, 2014 02:51pm

I am an Indian. When I read this news I just felt sad. I felt sad for your country, for those who had died of terrorism, of those who bore the grief of losing their loved ones.

I am sure of one thing. In India we took a resolve that another Mumbai attack should not happen. We are working towards that. Do you have the same resolve in Pakistan? Back there at my native town we have a saying, '' A snake-charmer dies mostly by a snakebite'' It is high time Pakistan realized that it is the biggest victim of its own mistakes. There are 132 gentle lives that stand witness to my statement.

anas Dec 18, 2014 02:52pm

is this the way to fight terrorism and terrorists. Good God help pakistan

OSD Dec 18, 2014 02:52pm

This is the stupidest decision that could have been made, especially in these circumstances! Even if the decision was on merit, they could have deferred the hearing. Our corruption cases get deferred all the time, but in these case, the idiots become sticklers for rules!

Rajeev Dec 18, 2014 02:52pm

This is unbelievable. Just within two days of Peshawar killings of innocent children this is what Pakistan does? Again I think he was good terrorists as he killed Indians and other nationals in India right? What message is being given?

rhyme Dec 18, 2014 02:52pm

This is how Pakistan is going to fight terrorism ? Try but chances are very less for success if one differentiate terrorism if it is India or in Pakistan .

indian Dec 18, 2014 02:53pm

wah pakistani govt. you are in right track to destroy terrorism.Shame on you.Nothing learn from peshawar attack.

Ali Akbar Dec 18, 2014 02:54pm

An Insult to injury! Sorry Kids, seems there are dead souls who support terrorism in some form. This guy should not have been released... and hanged for killing innocent people. He has been granted bail and the killing spree will never come to an end...

KHAN Dec 18, 2014 02:54pm

Come on can some body not talk to the higher authorities for the fool decision??? these lawyers works just for their money not for the nation. our wound are still fresh and we are doing the same mistake.

shyam Dec 18, 2014 02:54pm

Vary bad timing.

I thinK terrorism in Pakistan is a petty crime. If u have enough money u can come out.

Moderate Pakistani Dec 18, 2014 02:54pm


I am ashamed to call myself Pakistani after this......

hira shah Dec 18, 2014 02:55pm

that was expected no court dare to punish these criminals..............after all they only care for their own children

Pragmatic Dec 18, 2014 02:55pm

Why released if not hanged

deccan Dec 18, 2014 02:55pm

Govt requires him to fight the terrorism since force is incapable!! We can never learn a lesson; however hard that could be!!

CK Dec 18, 2014 02:56pm

so much for #IndiaWithPakistan ?

Ashamed Dec 18, 2014 02:56pm

This is why we will see Peshawar school attacks again and again. The good vs. bad terrorist games. When there has been such outpouring of support by our Indian brethren, this is how we respond - by freeing the terrorist who masterminded a very similar attack to the Peshawar one. Truly ashamed to be a Pakistani and hang my head in shame in front of our brothers and sisters from across the border.

Krishankant Jingar Dec 18, 2014 02:56pm

Such a shame! Why we still don't learn lesson from Peshawar massacre?

ravirajsher Dec 18, 2014 02:57pm

No lesson learnt. Shameless Act. Poor show of willingness to curb the menace.

Sierrabrave Dec 18, 2014 02:57pm

And yesterday Hafiz Saeed was on air blaming India for the Peshawar attack and threatening revenge! How do we take you seriously Pakistan?

MQ Dec 18, 2014 02:57pm

So it took precisely one day to see how serious the professed resolve against terrorism actually is.

Thanks for removing any misconception that while terrorists based in Afghanistan who threaten Pakistan will be ruthlessly eliminated, terrorists based in Pakistan threaten India will continue to be assets.

I guess we have to wait till the second type of snakes also start biting the hands that feed them. Long wait!

Or will it be an eternal wait?

AK Dec 18, 2014 02:57pm

I am at a loss for words to express my utter disgust at this. The People of Pakistan should come out on the streets and kill such terrorists on their own. I don't believe the leaders of this great nation have the guts or capacity to do so.

I sincerely pray to God to damn every one who supports these 'creatures'.

Ajamal Dec 18, 2014 02:58pm

@Ali Rathore. Issue is not high profile or heinous? Any court of law in the world would be looking at the evidences.

Indian Dec 18, 2014 02:58pm

what to say??? Pakistani people are helpless...

Ajamal Dec 18, 2014 02:59pm

@Shobit Gupta. Apart from sentiments, present evidence before the court. Otherwise, there is bail and acquittal. This is how justice system in the world operates.

Bharat Dec 18, 2014 02:59pm

Are you misinterpreting deadly attack on your children on india , than stop here only.... You dont know how far and havoc retaliation from india side if something happen like this ... Try to open your eye and don't support terrorist....

wiserneighbour Dec 18, 2014 02:59pm

Pakistan still to learn lots of lessons by getting hit.For that such criminals must roam free.

Vidhi Dec 18, 2014 03:00pm

Stunned and saddened by this action. I thought the ghastly Peshawar massacre would be a catalyst and bring a change in how Pakistan deals with terrorism. It would be easy to denounce the people of Pakistan and say all the negatives that normally will follow this decision, but with the faces of those innocent children still fresh in my mind i can only pray that no blood is shed on either side of the border in the hands of terror. After all what is a border? It is simply a imaginary line drawn by people to help govern those within that said line. People are the same, their dreams are the same, their pain and happiness is the same. If each one of us can quietly reflect as to what is important for us I am sure each one of us would say peace, happiness, health, prosperity and a family to enjoy all that with. Would we ever see it in our lifetime.

Ajamal Dec 18, 2014 03:00pm

@Urooj Saifi. WHY?? Because, evidence presented didn't warrant his continued incarnation.

athar Dec 18, 2014 03:00pm

i wonder on what account we complain for terrorism if our judges release such orders. terror has no boundaries whether you kill Indians american or pakistanis, all are human. culprits should be dammed by all ways.

akshaykumar Dec 18, 2014 03:01pm

Ha ha . This shows the seriousness with which Pakistan wants to fight terrorism. Judge already expressed his inability due to security concern. So this itself speaks about fairness of trial . May be bail was granted after threat call to judge .

achal malhotra Dec 18, 2014 03:01pm

there is a famous couplet from waris shah " waris shah , ai aadatan ni jaaniyan bhave tusi tote - tote kar vaikh lo " in english ( old habits die hard, rather they seldom die.)

Talking Point Dec 18, 2014 03:01pm

The snake has started to peel off its skin two days after suffering a big bite . While the good people of Pakistan represent the ladder , the snakes play their part in this game of snakes and ladders . Ultimate peace is utopia .If the Pak establishment is serious about no good or bad terrorists , they should arrest him before he takes the country deeper down the abyss.

s.khan Dec 18, 2014 03:02pm

just yesterday PM said that there wont be difference in good and bad .

ramesh patel Dec 18, 2014 03:02pm

@Zedex very true

Vijay Dec 18, 2014 03:02pm

So Pakistan's war on terror has started? India has felt the same pain for years which pakistan is feeling today.

Your Friend Dec 18, 2014 03:02pm

Bad Taliban but good Lakhvi and Hafiz Sayed? How?

salman Dec 18, 2014 03:03pm

I cannot believe it! i don't have words to express my feelings on this judgement!!!!!!!!

Amir K Dec 18, 2014 03:03pm

This is a very serious development. It seems that ISI or the ARMY is sure that RAW/India along with anti-pakistan forces were behine the peshawer carnage, His release is a message not a random circumstance. I am sure there is more to come out of this. I hope that the powerful people in both countries know that this will lead to more deaths. Only if Kashmire was resloved this all would be history. I suggest to my indians in this room and pakistanies as well to protest to your countries to let kashmire decide their own faith. it will be good for us and you.

kirti Dec 18, 2014 03:03pm

Good terrorist?

Ravindra Sharma Dec 18, 2014 03:04pm

This decision is not good in the interest of peace in the sub continent and appears to be in line of Hafiz Saeed threatening India for revenge ! May Allah the almighty , the benevolent , the merciful will give some wisdom to these hot headed people who spreading hate in place of love .

vishvas Dec 18, 2014 03:04pm

I am from India and today I am very happy to see that people from Pakistan are comingto say that this should not have happened. Good luck to Pakistan

Asif Dec 18, 2014 03:04pm

@Ajamal, there were live phone conversations, admission by the one terrorist caught alive directly naming this Lakhvi guy as the mastermind. Keeping your head in the sand and supporting guys like this will cause a hundred Peshawars. Pity you and your kind.

ramesh patel Dec 18, 2014 03:05pm

Lakhvi's bail highlights the 'good terrorist' and 'bad terrorist' line entrenched in Pakistani politics. Back to square one in Islamabad.

Indian Friend Dec 18, 2014 03:05pm

What a joke and What a shame... ? Such a disrespect to children who have just been killed. This is a strategic message from Pak Army to India that they will continue to support "good terrorist"

Taimur Dec 18, 2014 03:05pm


Bakistani Dec 18, 2014 03:05pm

Investigation by FIA but unable to find evidence. FIA Incompetence is totally un-acceptable. This is why Peshawar Incident has happened. The Terrorists have no fear of punishment. Corrupt Govt officials will save them. What a shame. What is the message we are giving to India and the rest of the World?

Jakir Dec 18, 2014 03:05pm

now he will try to show his braveness to kill innocent children,women and men in india.

Kumar Dec 18, 2014 03:05pm

Instead of hanging they are releasing a dreaded terrorist! Looks like nothing is going to change. Wonderful homage to the innocents who were massacred in Peshawar and in Mumbai.God Save Pakistan. Indians have to defend themselves and no way can rely on this Pakistani establishment for anything.

FAIR Dec 18, 2014 03:06pm

As long as ISI and Pakistan army support these terorists. No court will dare touch them. No prosecutor will present the case without loopholes. It looks like the people of Pakistan are held hostages and denied a future.

Pankaj Dec 18, 2014 03:06pm

So, we are back to square one !!

Abhishek Tomar Dec 18, 2014 03:07pm

And Pakistan did it again...

dinesh Dec 18, 2014 03:08pm

With heavy heart im saying this, but please look for and collect evidences (that will withstand the scrutiny of your courts) at Peshawar massacre site. Else theres every chance of the perpetrators being released on bail., if ever they were caught.

bibin thomas Dec 18, 2014 03:08pm

I feel sorry for the people of Pakistan...who has to suffer more because of the politics that taking Pakistan in deep trouble.

If the government has no power, Mr.Sharif should share the same openly.

All this will first kill Pakistan....only then it will come to us...

We will still fight it out

Random Indian Dec 18, 2014 03:08pm

@Ajamal So Terrorism is a bailable offence now? Wow, Pakistan has stooped to a new low! Timing couldn't be better either...

If evidence is insufficient, release him. Else keep him behind bars. You can't bail a suspected terrorist responsible for 184 deaths. That is just not done.

rukhsar Dec 18, 2014 03:09pm

Bad news...our system is corrupt..

Shyam Dec 18, 2014 03:09pm

Now I feel Pakistani people are helpless

bibin thomas Dec 18, 2014 03:09pm

I am happy Dawn has at least highlighted this big blunder by Pakistan...

God please save Pakistan

JDSingh Dec 18, 2014 03:10pm

@Ajamal evidence can come only if Pakistan is interested in weeding out terrorists.

As Hillay once said, if you rear snakes in your backyard, it's not necessary that the snakes would bite only your neighbour.

Just to show India down, Pakistan has messed up its own people and i guess they will never learn.

JDSingh Dec 18, 2014 03:12pm

However, it is nice to see Pakistani populace raising their voice against terrorism.

May the world be peaceful!!!

kirti Dec 18, 2014 03:12pm

@Shobit Gupta Great Expectations!

pradeep burla Dec 18, 2014 03:13pm

This is shame .Pakistan hasnot learnt from its mistakes. By saying Pakistan I donot address the common people but the ruling party/judiciary system . I stand with my Pakistani brothers and sisters sympathizing for the Peshawar attacks. This is ridiculous.

ravirajsher Dec 18, 2014 03:13pm

Double game and double standards for terrorism. misleading and misguiding common people of pakistan is the main business of such elements who are real enemies of pakistan who always wants to destabilize pakistan.Real enemy is this blindness of radicalism and hate traders.

Shah Dec 18, 2014 03:14pm

@Shobit Gupta Are you an expert on Pakistan? Do you work for the Pakistani government? We all know it is you Indians who were behind the school massacre. Indian RAW!

Sania Dec 18, 2014 03:16pm

This can not be happening! Is this how we pay respect to our departed innocent children, by bailing out potential terrorists?

Saba Dec 18, 2014 03:17pm

@Shobit Gupta A corrupt establishment can not at all represent a nation. We raise our voices everyday against their acts. I am an ordinary, common Pakistani. I am so sorry that it happened. We are sorry for such a weak establishment.

indian engineer Dec 18, 2014 03:17pm

i really lost my smile on this news as we were the very people who commented on #indiawithpakistan. Thank you pakistan.. its a good reply we got from you..

surprised Dec 18, 2014 03:18pm

You want me to clap and celebrate his bail? A big shame is added though..

Shwetabh Dec 18, 2014 03:18pm

so thats how you fight terror ? Lakhvi will take revenge for the innocent children killed in Pak by killing repeating the same in India ? completely disappointed

Thomas Dec 18, 2014 03:18pm


Ignorance is bliss. It will surely help in speedy progress of your country. :-P

Sudhanshu Swami Dec 18, 2014 03:18pm

@Khan India intercepted talks between terrorists during Mumbai attacks and pointed to Pakistan. Pakistan too intercepted talks between terrorists during Peshawar Attacks and didnt point towards India. I hope you know what this means.

MQ Dec 18, 2014 03:19pm

@Nikunj Read Nawaz Sharif's statement carefully.

He said Pak will not differentiate between good Taliban and bad Taliban.

He never said Pak will not differentiate between Taliban and LeT - to which Lakhvi belongs. Even if Nawaz wanted to say that he could not, because GHQ's permission will not be forthcoming for such a statement.

In other words it continues to be OK to support anyone who targets India. Business as usual on the India front.

Amit Sharma Dec 18, 2014 03:21pm

@Moderate Pakistani : NO please don't be ashamed.... if people like you let your shoulders fall, those perpetrators are gonna get stronger... common... it is this time when we together can raise our voice even more strongly... let us force the authorities to give the "Brave Children" the justice... if people of Pakistan are with the highest authorities they will definitely get the desired courage and strength to act firmly with in-human people like these...

Nish Dec 18, 2014 03:21pm

Guys... just Imagine if Mulla Fazallullah was arrested by Afghanistan and then subsequently released on bail.... sad...

Devadoss Nayagam Dec 18, 2014 03:22pm

No surprises here. According to Pakistan, these are terrorists who killed Indians, not Pakistanis. Hence they are the good terrorists and need to be treated differently. It is only when they kill Pakistanis they will become bad terrorists who need to be punished. Sad.

Gnanesh Dec 18, 2014 03:23pm

No sooner the tears for the little angels have dried than we hear about this unbelievable news.

Is the message that those who planned and executed 26/11 Mumbai massacre are not guilty; and that they are saints who should be set free ?

This would be very counter productive for the war on terror.

Mr Sharif is this your perception to fight terror ?

Today Delhi more than 1,000 children lighted candles and prayed for their brothers and sisters. And we will continue to pray for thesecangels and their families.

Madhan Dec 18, 2014 03:24pm

Good terrorist!!!

Farooq Dec 18, 2014 03:25pm

Bad, Bad, Bad.... its due to lame old legislation's which are now a days protecting criminals due to loop holes in them...we must repeal every legislation possible to serve justice. If our neighbors are suffering from people operating within Pakistan, we must take serious action against them. Supreme court should take notice on this and overrule this decision. The same case as it is in India where rape related victims are not being served with justice. But this is serious and should be stopped.

Mukesh Dec 18, 2014 03:25pm

Thank you Pakistan for showing that you are not going to change. But we felt pain when you got hurt,

ravirajsher Dec 18, 2014 03:26pm

@haq Fast learner? if u r so fast then u should not grow terrorist and wait for them to kill your innocent kids.u are really fast but in creating excuses and in creating false theories to fool people to hide your failure of policies.

Saurabh Dec 18, 2014 03:26pm

This is insult to not only those killed by these terrorists in Mumbai, but also an insult to all the martyers killed by terrorists including little cuties killed in Peshawar. Pakistan Govt should step in immediately and appeal in higher court to cancel the bail.

Sameer Sheikh Dec 18, 2014 03:27pm

Allah. Help my fellow idiot bretherens. You can't demand justice at one end when you deny at other end. There goes the warmth out of the window which came out of attack

Indians will think he is released to orchestrate new attack.

Javed Dec 18, 2014 03:28pm

This is shameful. Will you let the killers of Peshawar go free.? Are terror activities across any border not the same?

Poirot Dec 18, 2014 03:28pm

Quite interesting, so the propaganda theory has won, again. A simple answer to all the terrorists activities in Pakistan. India is funding it, India is behind it! So that your own support to LeT and IM is justified. (it happens only in Pakistan. if in India it is called that Pakistan is behind any terror attack, government and public demands strong action making Pakistan responsible and accountable. But in Pakistan if it is called that India is behind any terror activity, public and government immediate uses that to justify their terror activities in India)

Secondly, to those advocating that evidence are not enough to keep him behind the bars. Can you explain, what Pakistani agencies have done so far to gather the evidence? (if they are serious on anti-terrorism ?) Of course, India can give evidences only from the other side of the border; but that should give enough lead to your agencies to gather more evidences, IF they are SERIOUS. Otherwise, keep playing game of good and bad terrorists.

Masood Dec 18, 2014 03:28pm

Shame on Pakistan, Sorry India this shameful act to release this guy on bail. I am glad I revoked my nationality of this unjust country in 1984. They disgraced us in 1971, now they are disgracing and hurting the parents of the little angels who were killed just two days ago.

Prabhat Prasoon Dec 18, 2014 03:29pm

Pakistan has failed once again its own people. Pakistani establishment brought terror to the region to check Russia and counter India. Now, the country is bearing a brunt of it but perhaps the establishment doesnt want to learn. These fanactic will not spare anyone.. See the middle eastern world.. Its upto people of Pakistan to rise before their heaven turns into Afghanistan..(compare Afghanistan in 70s and today)..

Uzma Ahmed Dec 18, 2014 03:29pm

I hear from even Pakistani diplomats, intellectuals, and even ordinary people , on TV discussiions, that Hafiz Sayeed is a Social Reformer and engaged in charity work, disregarding the killing of innocents in Mumbai attacks. Remember Hafeez is a globally UN declared Terrorist. Now Lakvi is also released as Pak Govt or prosecution will not give documents or evidence to Pakistani courts - We genuinely feel for the terrorist attack on innocent school children but honestly, i have doubt if Pakistani diplomats, intellectualls and people consider those 7 Taliban barbaric killers as also Social reformers. Cant you see, in the tears of those helpless Pakistani mothers , reflection of tears of those helpless Indian mothers, wives killed in Mumbai attack. Both attacks by Paksitani citizens. No matter what your opinion is, we Indians feel the pain of Pakistani children in Peshawar attacks. Pls introspect and save your nation. I am proud of my nation that our entire Parliment and all schools observed 2 minutes silence to extend a token of support and sympathy to the victims of school attack

prc Dec 18, 2014 03:30pm

Dark future. Nothing changed

abhishek Dec 18, 2014 03:30pm

"In April this year however, proceedings came to a virtual standstill as special judge of the ATC expressed his inability to conduct the trial of the seven suspects due to security reasons." This one line says all about the situation in which pakistan is living. SHAME.. And kudos to The Dawn for publishing this.. It seems only a few good man are fighting to protect sanity and rationality. God knows how many more precious human lives will be consumed to learn a lesson.

Vivek M Dec 18, 2014 03:30pm

The martyrdom of Peshawar school children and their parents pain is going waste.

Peacelover Dec 18, 2014 03:32pm

WOW !! Fantastic U tern from Pakistan again !! in less than 24 hours. Still you want Afghan to control the terrorists spilling over to Pak. Have you ever heard a word called " double standard" ??

Madhu Dec 18, 2014 03:32pm

Two steps forward, 10 steps backward! I am from India and for the past two days every time i see images of the massacre my heart cries out for the mothers and fathers who have lost their dear ones. This is a dreadful decision and i believe Pakistan is indirectly or directly giving LET a chance to prepare a stage for another Peshawar in Mumbai, Delhi, Srinagar, Bangalore....It will happen again and we will mourn again, condemn again and continue to just helplessly live again. Will we ever learn from our mistakes?

IP Dec 18, 2014 03:33pm

Pakistan will never learn

Amir Shah Dec 18, 2014 03:33pm

What a shame, on one hand we mourn our dead ones and on the other, we let the terrorists loose because they only killed Indians. Wake up Pakistan, terrorism is terrorism where ever it hits.

Sohan Dec 18, 2014 03:34pm

My 1 min mourn for the death of Pakistan Judiciary.Hope at least this time you will not say India speaks without reason.This is the reason nobody trust Pakistan.Just after one day of Peshawar massacre release of such terrorist, will definitely give a good message to not only India but whole world.Lakvi must be categorized as good terrorist until he repeates a Mumbai like incident in Pakistani soil. Feel really bad for Pakistan..... Don't you think you are heading to become Syria or Iraq?

KHAN Dec 18, 2014 03:34pm

@Urooj Saifi because after his release he can go and kill few innocents peoples then again will be another army operation, he will get arrested and it starts again, thats how some peoples wants the story to work, just the blame game, arrest and release. they any enjoys the lavish life behind bars,

indian engineer Dec 18, 2014 03:35pm

@Ajamal there are bunch of evidences.. but courts must need a willingness to consider it being neutral..

SDU Dec 18, 2014 03:35pm

great job! after what happened in Peshawar, this is the response - RELEASE A TERRORIST responsible for killing children (among others in mumbai)

A J Dec 18, 2014 03:37pm

Pakisthan is clearly disrespecting the souls of all the poor kids by this move.

PCG Dec 18, 2014 03:38pm

It shows the seriousness of Pakistan about terrorism. Good going , keep it up !

Ahmad Dec 18, 2014 03:38pm

As a Pakistani I am shocked to know this. We as a nation must make this judge of ATC social pariah. We do not want judges who give bails to terrorists.

IKM Dec 18, 2014 03:38pm

Now stay tuned for the release of Mumbai Terror Part 2, or Peshawar School Part 2.....

inqelabzindabad Dec 18, 2014 03:39pm

Sorry kids, your sacrifice is forgotten even before the tears dried up.

Vijay Dec 18, 2014 03:39pm

@Khan You guys will never change.

smj Dec 18, 2014 03:40pm

This is really a bed news .....

B.K.Mathur Dec 18, 2014 03:40pm

Pakistan's resolve and determination to fight terrorism lasted one and half day . Death of about 142 innocent children is not enough for Pakistan to see writing on the wall. Business as usual nothing changes . May be 142 innocent lives are enough to change army and government to correct its flawed policy. I can only prey for Pakistan.

Skeptic Dec 18, 2014 03:40pm

Disappointed as a Pakistani..

chakbo Dec 18, 2014 03:41pm

Thank you Pakistan for giving a tight slap to those who were on Twitter trending with #IndiawithPakistan. Indians will never learn from their past experiences. Thanks for releasing Lakhvi. Pakistan Zindabad!

goggy Dec 18, 2014 03:41pm

Shame !

Iqbal Malik Dec 18, 2014 03:42pm

@Ajamal this may be right but Ajmal timing isn't right.

Shubhanshi Sharma Dec 18, 2014 03:42pm

What a decision. Id you don't have any respect for the people who were killed in Mumbai, atleast have some respect for those butchered in Peshawar. Secondly, look at the timing.. Perfect timing!! Extremely sad..

S G Roy Dec 18, 2014 03:42pm

Why do you mourn the death of the school children when you are so lenient with terrorists?

Akbaruddin Dec 18, 2014 03:43pm

indiawithpakistan.... What else I can say... Just two days ago I cried while watching peshawar news..... and now this? I just want to cry again......this time in anger....

Anish Dec 18, 2014 03:46pm

Pakistan is cultivating snakes in its backyard and hoping that they will bite their neighbours.

Younis Dec 18, 2014 03:46pm

@Khan Shame on you. It is our country and we are responsible for its fate. We must leave the practice to blame India for everything.

Rajdeep Anand Dec 18, 2014 03:48pm

Thanks for rewarding us for our support and sympathy!

chakbo Dec 18, 2014 03:48pm

@haq Really! then you can call yourself a real Pakistani.

Kabilan Dec 18, 2014 03:49pm

Now its in the hand of Pakistan public to decide on our wound of Mumbai 26/11.

Nothing to add more !

RIP Peshawar Kids !

Desi Dimag Dec 18, 2014 03:49pm

No comments.

Your Man Dec 18, 2014 03:49pm

This is a shame on Pakistan government you should learn from the fresh massacre of school children... you are again on wrong way

Naxalite Dec 18, 2014 03:51pm

Hence proved, establishment considers Indian hand behind Peshawar Massacre and wanted to reply. Good One!

pagrri Sanbhaal Dec 18, 2014 03:52pm

I am speechless.

Naxalite Dec 18, 2014 03:52pm

@vijay chennai Tit for Tat.

Concerned citizen Dec 18, 2014 03:55pm

Shameful! The corrupt system continues!!!

Azmeen Dec 18, 2014 04:04pm

The court might have good reason to grant bail but timing of decision is terrible from stand-point-of-view of Pakistan's foreign relations. made this decision.

naveed Dec 18, 2014 04:04pm

Not good, plus very bad timing, sad.....

Danish Haider Dec 18, 2014 04:05pm

Govt. has miserably failed to protect Honorable Judges. They are human too and they have their families as well. Entire Pakistan is to either get ready for global isolation, in case, any attack similar to Mumbai attack happens in future or if 200 people or kids massacred in any attack.

Justice delayed in justice denied.

AHA Dec 18, 2014 04:07pm

Pakistan cannot change for the better. We are doomed.

Ajay Dec 18, 2014 04:10pm

This is tribute given by Pakistani government to the Peshawar Killing.

mba Dec 18, 2014 04:12pm

Why? Why now - just one day after we suffered bitterly because of such mad men? We seem to follow the calls of death!

farooq anwar Dec 18, 2014 04:12pm

This is the true face of our deep state ideology. Nothing will change

Muthu Krishnan V Dec 18, 2014 04:13pm

If somebody kills your neighbors he is good, if he kills your own he is bad. A few children died, nobody is going to give a damn.

Zee Dec 18, 2014 04:14pm

Lakhwi was accused and charged of masterminding the Mumbai terrorist act in 2008. Moodi was also accused of Gujrat riots and killings of scores of Muslims in Gujrat. Just because you accused someone don't make him guilty of charges, may be my Indian friends don't understand this legal issue.

Sear Dec 18, 2014 04:14pm

@Ajamal Really. you saw the evidence?

N. Dec 18, 2014 04:14pm

@Sane Indian . No Judiciary is not naive. It has said, it fears violence. What more can be said.

Shahzeb Dec 18, 2014 04:16pm

Is this the reward for the solidarity we have been getting from the Indians? We are ourselves our own worst enemy, we don't need a foreign hand therefore!

Vaibhav Bhatt Dec 18, 2014 04:16pm

I request my Indian fellows to not abuse Pakistan.. It is more about pakistani establishment or Pakistani courts ... I understand that Pakistani friends share our pain and in this moment of sorrow.. let's not hurl abuses but together take stand .. I am sure if we have pakistani people on our side... their establishment will certainly take notice of it ... We should not let this decision by one of their courts reflects upon whole of pakistan

afshan sheikh Dec 18, 2014 04:17pm

And that's the way the cookie crumbles. hope we dont to lose another 150 childran to put him in jail.

Anand Dec 18, 2014 04:17pm

Nothing has changed in pakistan!!!!

N. Dec 18, 2014 04:17pm

@KHAN . Higher Authority? What higher authority? Is there an authority higher than the Judiciary.

bloggervat Dec 18, 2014 04:19pm

I ask both the Sherif's (Nawaz and Raheel). DO YOU THINK THE SOULS OF POOR KIDS WOULD REST IN PEACE if you release these enemies of humanity without a punishment or trial?

indian Dec 18, 2014 04:20pm

Now it is turn of Pak Judiciary! Instead of expediting the case they prefer realse on bail. There may be some hidden agreement!

SG Khan - Karachi Dec 18, 2014 04:20pm

Dear Indian's commenting here: we must continue with all the sympathy and love that was shown by you guys, to us, in the past couple of weeks, at a time when we, as a nation, went through such a tragedy. What happened in Mumbai was despicable. It should have never happened. None of the people who were killed that day deserved to be killed. No one has the right to take anyone's life, except for God.

Granting bail to this crazy warmonger is terrible - it's something which shouldn't have happened. The higher courts should take notice of it, and the govt. should appeal the decision in the supreme court and put a stay on it.

The only way both nations can prosper in the true sense is if we focus on our economic growth, on education, healthcare, providing clean water and a decent quality of life to our citizens.

I will always wish the best for India, as I wish for my beloved country, Pakistan. It hurts me when I see innocent people being killed, whether it's in Pakistan, India or anywhere else. It's not about nationalities, or religion. It's about humanity. We love you guy's, really, and hope those involved in the terrible, terrible, Mumbai attacks are brought to justice. If the accused are proven guilty, and if the Indian govt. wishes, Pakistan should hand them over to India, so India can do as they please with the culprits.

Practical Indian Dec 18, 2014 04:23pm

Probably he is a "good terrorist".... so is out on bail. Learn before its too late Pakistan...!!!

Anuj Dec 18, 2014 04:23pm

most commentators here appear to be indian, going by their names. wonder what pakistanis think about this.

Sam Dec 18, 2014 04:24pm

Why are we Indians getting upset. Maybe Nawaz has an ace up his sleeve. Remember Sholay/Karma and many other movies. He is releasing Lakhvi with the condition that he will get TTP chief "zinda ya murda".

Abhi Dec 18, 2014 04:25pm

Maybe these are the good terrorists who only attack India. The bad ones like Taliban are against whom Pakistan will fight...

Omair Dec 18, 2014 04:25pm

Oohh my God! Really? This is probably the worst thing ATC could have done at this point in time... We have not learnt any lessons! The govt is not sincere when it promises a day of reckoning... Shame on you!

Bejoy Jose Dec 18, 2014 04:25pm

Shameful. Learning no lessons.

Harsh Dec 18, 2014 04:26pm

@Khan Unless you have any proof you are not only disrespecting the memories of the children, you are also a traitor because you are taking the heat away from the real terrorist Taliban

Naveen Porwal Dec 18, 2014 04:27pm

That's interesting we Indian...crying here from last 2 days because what happen in Peshawar, and they release the Mastermind of Mumbai attack..

Pankaj Dec 18, 2014 04:27pm

He Must be a "Good" Terrorist then.

Chetan Chandra Dec 18, 2014 04:27pm

Job well executed by Pakistan,ironic to the statements made after Peshawar school attack,by Pakistani authorities. Their words never match the facts on the grounds.

Omair Dec 18, 2014 04:27pm

I am a Pakistani Muslim but i have far more in common with Hindus from India and Jews from Israel than I have in common with these barbaric animals that call themselves muslims! At the end of the day, all moderate people, whatever their religion is, are normal human beings trying to live a decent life.

BK Dec 18, 2014 04:30pm

The positive attitude we can see from the comments in this column. Almost everybody criticized the decision on release of Mr. Lakhvi. Whatever the judiciary of political decision, we people to unite against such evils, which will make magical effect after some time. Please god sake do not blame each other for every happenings.

BlueEarth Dec 18, 2014 04:31pm

You can try to wake up somebody who is sleeping,but how do you wake up somebody who is only pretending to be asleep?

Desi Dec 18, 2014 04:36pm

Injustice from the court of JUSTICE. When will Pakistan ever change???

lkhan Dec 18, 2014 04:40pm

It is sick that this evil man should be given bail, especially at this time. It is a slap in the face of all the innocent people who have been killed by these mad inhumane terrorists. India mourns our children, we give bail to one responsible for so much suffering in Mumbai. Have a heart..

vyas Dec 18, 2014 04:41pm

As brought out by the report the judge fears for his and courts security while hearing case of such individuals. This seems to be a case of intimidation. We can reach to Army school tomorrow we can reach your courts. Judge seems to have done what he thought was sensible, that is to release him on bail.

Syed Hussain Akbari Dec 18, 2014 04:42pm

Can any one sitting high in the Government and Court just explain in simple words as to why has this terrorist been released on bail ? Peshawar Tragedy is not old and also the day when in the APC it has been agreed upon that no terrorist will be pardoned and Capital Punishment will again revived. Is this not dual face ?

Ammara Dec 18, 2014 04:47pm

shameful act

AC Dec 18, 2014 04:49pm

@SG Khan - Karachi : Thanks brother. While I feel immensely sad and angry upon his release, I also take huge solace from the observation that there are many common Pakistanis like you against this decision. Thank you for your support.

saad s Dec 18, 2014 04:51pm

indian & pakistani ppl, plz hold on. dont take harsh stands for yr countries and agencies since u dont know what is really going on behind it.our fault is we believe what we have shown.

Ahmer Dec 18, 2014 04:51pm

So we need more lessons to learn. Why can't we just firm our bouches and get on with the real work and hang these people.

Civi varghese Dec 18, 2014 04:52pm

pakistan has not yet learned anything.even god can help you?

Rakesh Singh Dec 18, 2014 04:52pm

Again a surprise news from pakistan,need to big change in mentality.

Subhash Dec 18, 2014 04:52pm

@B.K.Mathur No need to pray for enemy

norton Dec 18, 2014 04:53pm

2 minutes of silence and mourning again, same as like yesterday. But for a different cause. Death of justice

ibrahim Dec 18, 2014 04:54pm

@balaji believe me. Pakistan is now Planning something big for vengeance.Release of Lakhvi is 1st step.Check out the indians commenting on this post they are terrified.

ravi Dec 18, 2014 04:56pm

Shame ! Pakistan has just seen one of the worst part of Terrorism. Pakistani tribes over whom government has no control are creating trouble in India for ages. Its now affecting Pakistan, still not woken up. Shame ! In either case society in India and Pakistan both need to grow and be mature.

arjun Dec 18, 2014 04:59pm

We are still with the ppl of pakistan but are surely against their political class. This incident brought the ppl together not those idiot a way they are also terrorist. Stay together guys. Love will triumph over hate

LK Dec 18, 2014 05:01pm

Fighting terrorism Pakistani style!!! Wait until they shoot your own kids. Until then, they are strategic assets.... Excellent policy!!

Rahul Singh Dec 18, 2014 05:02pm

@Khan Learn, think, read, hear and see outside world, before alleging anybody. Do not make such comments on this inhuman accident.

KJ Dec 18, 2014 05:03pm

And I now see dark days in Indo-Pak relations. Though in crisis of Peshawar killings, I saw a sea of humanity in India feeling the pain and really praying for parents of victims setting aside the differences . As far as I know of Modi government, they are not like previous governments who will take things lying down. They are very agressive on national security. The casualty will be a small goodwill that had just started developing between people. A very wrong move by courts. How can you greive over killing of your own children and then let off someone who was responsible for killing of children and their parents in Mumbai. RIP Peace (Process).

Taimoor Khan Dec 18, 2014 05:05pm

I sense a revenge is in offing after the barbaric act of Peshawar massacre. After Peshawar all bets are off and we will not forget our little angels.

AH Dec 18, 2014 05:12pm

What are the grounds for this bail? Someone from the government should file a petition and stop this from happening.

anil Dec 18, 2014 05:13pm

Very Bad

Kumar Dec 18, 2014 05:14pm

Insult to Injury! Whither Pakistan?? Doomed! There emerged a ray of hope till this moment and the thinking was that the loss of those innocent lifes won't go unanswerd. But this is beyond everything. Dear Brothers and Sisters of Pakistan please do some thing before it is too late.

sam Dec 18, 2014 05:15pm

This pakistan will never learn lesson. ..

cocroach Dec 18, 2014 05:19pm

wow!, now see this news

Blake Dec 18, 2014 05:19pm

huh. :(

Alok Dec 18, 2014 05:20pm

In April this year however, proceedings came to a virtual standstill as special judge of the ATC expressed his inability to conduct the trial of the seven suspects due to security reasons. This came following a terrorist attack on the district courts in Islamabad in the month of March. judge bhi kya kare..........bichara.

Ali Dec 18, 2014 05:21pm

As a Pakistani I am shocked at this decision .......

Guest Dec 18, 2014 05:21pm

Very Nice! This is why its so difficult to commiserate with Pakistanis. While we are here shedding tears and extending went ahead and granted bail (released) the perpetrators of Mumbai Attacks. Keep Breeding snakes and remember that snakes eat their young.

Jai Dec 18, 2014 05:24pm

When I heard he got bail, I despaired. But reading the ordinary citizens of Pakistan condemn this decision gives me hope. Good luck to you, my brothers and sisters across the border. I truly wish you, the ordinary innocent citizens who just want to live your lives in peace, the best in wrestling your country back from the demons who care little for the collateral damage their power games cause.

swarup Dec 18, 2014 05:26pm

We are deeply pained by this decision. I think that majority of Pakistani people must protest against this decision.

Sunil Dec 18, 2014 05:27pm

This is clearly an insult to injury and kids. Terrorists have no religion- they don't think if its Mumbai or Peshawar.

S K Sahoo Dec 18, 2014 05:27pm

World laughs at us on our resolve to fight against terrorism.Three days State mourning is still not over.What a commitment !

Ajamal Dec 18, 2014 05:36pm

Narendra Modi was cleared of Gujrat massacre due to lack of evidence. Courts need evidence - not sentiments or propaganda.

Ashok Pandey Dec 18, 2014 05:39pm

@Khan - Pls stop this blame game and foreign hands in such times. I pray sanity for you.

Senthil Dec 18, 2014 05:40pm

@Khan You will never learn

Affan Dec 18, 2014 05:43pm

This is a disgrace, how can terror suspects be bailed.

Unfortunately the whole state machinery has become so petrified of terrorists since Salman Taseer episode that even decisions are being given out based on fear. One advice, if you can't handle the pressure, withdraw from judging the case or resign altogether, why play with hundreds of lives by releasing people even if only accused of terrorism. Haven't we paid enough price already?

Senthil Dec 18, 2014 05:47pm

@PAK - Thanks for your co operation. Alwasys #indiawithpakistan

BK Dec 18, 2014 05:48pm

Better not to use such wordings "this Pakistanis". Neither Pakistanis or Indians bad, but few elements are bad.

Annaam Dec 18, 2014 05:49pm

Why?!! How can they allow this person to roam freely when he has been charged with such a heinous crime?! Have we learnt nothing from our own history?!!?

WhatIsWrongWithWorld Dec 18, 2014 05:50pm

@Khan Really?? !! What are the intentions? Continue on suicidal path? At least respect the souls of those poor kids, before agreeing with good happening to terrorist of any kind.

Ijaz Dec 18, 2014 05:50pm

Great timing!!

Sharmeen Dec 18, 2014 05:52pm

This is ridiculous!!! It hasn't even be two days and ATC grants bail to another monster. Seriously there is no limit to the idiocy of these people.

indian friend Dec 18, 2014 05:53pm

it should be re think issue... appealing to pakistan government to think on it ....they all are terrorist and should not be release....

manesh Dec 18, 2014 05:54pm

wow!!!!! they are really seriously fighting terrorism SHAME

M. Siddique Dec 18, 2014 05:54pm

WRONG decision. New law should be approved to deny bail to terrorism suspects. They have to prove their innocence otherwise stay in jail.

Astrix Dec 18, 2014 05:55pm

Hatred is the seed of terrorism. There are people who openly spread hatred. If they are not neutralized, these massacres would keep coming.

Nadeem Chaudhry Dec 18, 2014 05:55pm

Shame on everyone!

Mamata_Begam Dec 18, 2014 05:55pm

Now Pakistan would have to forget about hosting any international sports events or tourism.

Salman Dec 18, 2014 05:56pm

Oh please Indians! Your own officials admitted that Mumbai attack was a false-flag operation to find justification for the controversial anti terrorism act approved. yet this is so convenient for you to blame everything on Pakistan! Go get a life!

Sarah Rehan Dec 18, 2014 06:02pm

Unbelievable! Seems like an anti-terrorism court serves to protect terrorists!

saher Dec 18, 2014 06:08pm

Is there any justification for this, if at all? how could the government do this? SHAME ON PAKISTANI GOVERNMENT!!!

Pawan Dec 18, 2014 06:12pm

I hope Pak Govt will challenge his bail in higher court.

Man of Steel Dec 18, 2014 06:19pm

Are they kidding?

The Reluctant Fundamentalist Dec 18, 2014 06:20pm

I am a Pakistani and I believe this is wrong. Stupid decision at a very very wrong time.

Saifuddin Takhtawala Dec 18, 2014 06:22pm

Mockery of justice.

Sarah Dec 18, 2014 06:26pm

@Shobit Gupta There are vultures on both side of border who doesn't want peace because there livelihood as politician is affected.So things will never be normal.

Peace Dec 18, 2014 06:27pm

It is so sad to see this ...really when both countries will learn lesson. see nations like East and West Germany ...not a playfield for others. Stop terrorising each other via LeT / TTP/ ISI/ RAW/ Indian Consulates in Afghanistan!! Please!

Ali Dec 18, 2014 06:28pm

Come on he is not going anywhere. If ur proof is good the courts will convect him and will be put behind bar. However if ur evidence is half secret and half provided then blame ur system

Faisal Dec 18, 2014 06:29pm

Why why why ?

K RAMANI Dec 18, 2014 06:30pm

@SG Khan - Karachi excellent. I hope we have more people like you here . GOD BLESS YOU AND INCREASE YOUR TRIBE. My compliments to your parents as well they have given you goodness and humanity

Ali Dec 18, 2014 06:31pm

Why? Those truly behind this bail need to be exposed and tried themselves as terrorists. When are we going to learn that evil is evil.

kaliraja t Dec 18, 2014 06:33pm

@Ajamal that is why,no criminal was punished when thousands were killed in Pakistan.Nobody will be a witness.

SR Dec 18, 2014 06:34pm

It is sad that even after such an unfortunate incident in Peshawar, some people in Pakistan like Hafeez Sayeed are blaming it on India. India has tried to show support and solidarity with every grieving family in Pakistan, but if Pakistan wants to stop this from happening in future, they will have to do thorough introspection rather than blaming it on others. When you blame such incidents on others knowing that this is not the case, actual terrorists get away with doing such things. Please stop this madness and save innocent lives. Terrorists are terrorists, people with no religion, they are not for and against any country, they are just against humanity.

jeet Dec 18, 2014 06:35pm

Good gesture by Pakistani commentors, people of both nation must enforce govt over elimination of terrorism this part of plannet.

Gnanesh Dec 18, 2014 06:40pm


Dear Omair, salute to you. You have made the most sensible comment. As long as we pick the best tenets and aspects of any great religion, we may or may not go to heaven after our life here, but we definitely will be really good people till we live. May God bless you.

Average Indian Dec 18, 2014 06:40pm

Pakistan Govt. love terrorists. No matter how high price they need to pay to retain their love. A bstad nation can't be any better than this. Hope that they might learn after few more massacres (which are tragic incidents for us).

Aroon Dec 18, 2014 06:40pm

@SG Khan - Karachi Thank you brother for your kind, reasonable and gentle words. God bless you!

Khushi Meherban Dec 18, 2014 06:42pm

We the people of India and Pakistan are one. But such news saddens me. I am saddened.

Gnanesh Dec 18, 2014 06:42pm

@Vaibhav Bhatt You are right Vaibhav.

jaat Dec 18, 2014 06:42pm

@Shah and you believe it? If yes, may Allah help you and give you wisdom.

arun Dec 18, 2014 06:44pm

@Shah then prove it......!!!

Rajat India Dec 18, 2014 06:48pm

Such things will happen in Pakistan only. How could this person get a baail????? He is involved in such a high profile case.

Khalid Dec 18, 2014 06:50pm

@Waseem Not in Pakistan, my friend.

Syed Imam Ali Dec 18, 2014 06:53pm

Being a PAKISTANI I find this WRONG in every manner!

as Dec 18, 2014 06:53pm

It is toothless justice system. It is only their to legitimize martial law, political bickering. Our justice system does not care about common, people, their lives or their honor.

Muhammad Dec 18, 2014 06:55pm

Please do note that government prosecutor argued against it.

suresh Dec 18, 2014 06:58pm


Thank you brother for speaking your heart. I am an Indian and I salute people like you.

Pakistani Dec 18, 2014 07:02pm

I'm with India on this!Does not make sense, especially after the Peshawar carnage.

piers Dec 18, 2014 07:07pm

RIP and condolences to all victims of terrorism, across the world from London, England.

After the Peshawar outrage - words fail me. I cannot believe this decision.

Zak Dec 18, 2014 07:08pm

India, keep quiet. Col Rohit, the murderer of 70 innocent pakistani passengers whilst travelling on an Indian train in India, and in the process killing 28 Indian Hindus, who everyone seems to have forgot, still serves in the Indian army. As for UN, you seem to remember it now, but evade it regarding kashmir. Can't play both ways, eh!

Zak Dec 18, 2014 07:11pm

Regardless of the unsavoury background of these type of people, on what basis is Pakistan charging them, because the indian interior ministry senior officer,in a sworn affidavit to court stated that Indian RAW carried the Bombay attack. Is this case about, RAW using these people to carry out the Bombay attack. We need clarification on this case.

Ajay Dec 18, 2014 07:13pm

The positive thing I see here is most Pakistanis here condemn this act. This is heart warming. Let's join hands #SiblingsAcrossBorders

najam Dec 18, 2014 07:14pm

I support India over this issue even though I am a Pakistani. There anger is justified and we have again and again failed to take action against these beast.

Venky S Rao Dec 18, 2014 07:18pm

Your Excellency Mr. Nawaz Sharif Prime Minister of Pakistan: Sir, actions speak louder than words, within less than 24 hrs of your solemn vow to put an end to terrorism, your system unleashes one of the notorious terrorists. If this is how you wish to fight terror, then I am sorry to say difficult to save your innocent countrymen/women & children from falling prey to the cruelty of these brutal barbarians!

Das Dec 18, 2014 07:20pm

rkn Dec 18, 2014 07:29pm

What message is Pakistan trying to send to the world ?

shahid Dec 18, 2014 07:31pm

And the Indians go nuts in the forum...

Calm down! What did you expect? That overnight all extremists will be treated equally? One of the most strategic tools in Pakistan's possession is extremists that could keep Afghanistan and India in check. Time to stand by your position is when you are under biggest duress. This just restates the position.

The message is very clear to extremists, if you care to read. "Focus your attention on targets beyond this soil and you would be taken care off. If you dare touch any one on this soil, all bets are off. We will remove our soft glove and teach you a lesson".

If you care about Pakistan. Then pray that ISIS gets defeated in Iraq and Syria. Otherwise, brace for a "real" Islamic state in Pakistan/Afghanistan. Even more hardened than that in the middle east. Just wait for the US to depart Afghanistan.

I hope and pray that I am grossly mistaken.

Tippo Dec 18, 2014 07:32pm

Very good. Please keep Lakhvis, Dawoods and Hafiz Saeeds amidst your society. Please allow them all the freedom. They will take care of your health as well as your children and the future of your country. All the best Pakistan! Please keep praying five times with them. That would make you a great nation. Please do not send your daughters to schools. Keep them under burqas within your houses. That will keep you happy. All the best Pakistan!

think_then_speak Dec 18, 2014 07:35pm

How this can happen that such high profile criminal roam free, and still our leaders say they are serious in eliminating terrorism. .

Dan Dec 18, 2014 07:37pm

The most unfortunate about Pakistan is that though most common people are good, those with power and authority (Govt, law, military) work for the terrorists rather than the people. I pity the common people of Pakistan.

Atif Jafri Dec 18, 2014 07:52pm

As a Pakistani, I am appalled at this.

AK Dec 18, 2014 07:54pm

I expressed my sorrow and sympathy for Pakistanis many times in last couple of days and I am doing it again now. Your ordeal is not over yet. With such mindset of your policy makers and ATC, there is no hope. My deepest sympathy for the helpless people!

T.M. Reddy Dec 18, 2014 08:00pm

This ignites justice system in Pakistan. It is not just India has problem with these people. It is also important to eliminate terrorism in Pakistan just occurred 2 days ago.

rajan Dec 18, 2014 08:16pm

@Ajamal Narendra Modi was cleared of Gujrat massacre due to lack of evidence. Courts need evidence - not sentiments or propaganda.

Govt of India has provided Govt of Pakistan with the real time conversation of thses guys, when there were ordering the attacks. Unfortunately that is not good enough

diwALI or RAMzan Dec 18, 2014 08:17pm

Pradeep Dec 18, 2014 08:43pm

@Ajamal He was put on trial because of the evidences. How do you think a case can begin on international level without evidences and thats too between India and Pakistan. Evidence were given to your govt and thats why they all were arrested. Do you believe that Pakistan will arrest their citizen and start a trial just because we said so?

shezad Dec 18, 2014 08:47pm


Let's hope the government takes notice and makes sure he is re arrested. All evidence needs to be looked at and he should pay for his crimes if he has done so.

We have a few examples in the subcontinent where criminals have gone free due to lack of evidence.

Thiru Dec 18, 2014 08:48pm

Apathy, that's the word that comes to mind.

Bhaskar S Dec 18, 2014 09:01pm

Cant believe such a decision is made a day after a heinous act. We are all still grieving the death of so many innocent children. A gross disappointment :-(. May the saner minds prevail. Thanks to all the pakistani friends for condemning the decision.

Adnan Dec 18, 2014 09:08pm

I can understand the outrage by my Indian brothers. I am also upset to see this terrorist getting away. Both countries had indulged in a dirty proxy war that had inflected so much misery. Pakistan’s bad Taliban is fully supported by India and good Taliban is an enemy of India. These elements who are enemy of humanity will not be eliminated until both countries stop supporting them.
One good News, We have finally realized that the war against Taliban is ours. Till now many of us were not sure if we should fight them.

Sipahi Dec 18, 2014 09:12pm

@Waseem yes it is, if proven in the court of law.

vincent Dec 18, 2014 10:24pm

i am happy to at least see my fellow Pakistani brothers see what these stupid politicians are involved in.Nobody in this country wants war .. stop this nonsense. my brothers in Pakistan have to raise awareness amongst themselves and bring these culprits to justice. I cant believe this bail. Hopefully they don't strike again. Surely its a mistake. These criminals don't care about human blood. So as to speak they are just colour blind for if they weren't they would know that any blood would have the same red colour. Shameful and tragic!!!!! Fellow neighbour still standing in solidarity with my brothers

Pragmatist Dec 18, 2014 10:30pm

Probably the judge is afraid about his life? Let the terrorists tried by the military and executed promptly. Just being the member of Laskhar-i-Taiba is enough to hang the person.

Shafique Dec 18, 2014 10:30pm

Innocent citizens suffer whether it is Peshawar or Mumbai... military and Politicians of both countries must learn a lesson. Stop the nonsense conspiracies against each other. Accept the existence of both countries and respect each other.

Truth Dec 18, 2014 10:41pm

Now only civil society could save Pakistan, otherwise We have enough example in middle East and Africa continent.

Sara Rehman Dec 18, 2014 10:55pm

@Balaji Bangolae Lakshmikanth - Sadly, I must agree with you. Barely two days after the Peshawar massacre of innocents, another monster has been released by the Pakistani establishment. What will happen to us all? It is indeed a shameful act.

someone_else Dec 18, 2014 11:41pm

@Ajamal Care to explain if there was no evidence against him then why was he in jail since 2008? Or was it some sort of government security for him so that RAW does not get to him first?

prasad Dec 18, 2014 11:45pm

This is really unfortunate. What is the point behind granting this bail...especially just 2 days after Peshawar incident

G Qureshi Dec 19, 2014 12:12am

My God. What is wrong with us? Letting the mastermind go on bail so he can do more killing. Shame on the Court too.

Ahmad Wali Dec 19, 2014 12:46am

Hmmm.. Either he is bailed to show India that to stop terrorism in Pakistan or we will free the people who were involved in terrorism in India or maybe we are back to same old routine.

@Uzma Ahmed , well said!!

Joe FL Dec 19, 2014 01:10am

Every time I begin to think there is hope for Pakistan, something like this comes along. Every time.

I can only speak for one person (in USA). But I am going to write to my congress representative and tell her to vote to remove all aid to Pakistan. It's all I can do now.

Of course there will be replies here that "we" don't need anybody's aid. Fine. You can keep digging a hole for everything and everyone that doesn't fit your narrow ideology, but as the hole gets larger you will fall into it.

Written wiith deep sadness. We should be brothers and sisters in this tiny world of ours.

Its a bad news... But I am happy to read comments, that some of Pakistani friends are also sad on his bail.... Together we need to stop giving support to these terrorists..... And I am seeing that happen, with support for each others country.... Things are changing for better, although this decision is very bad and detrimental to our relations but we must continue to support each other in tough times...

What protection do the judges have against terrorists? Are they risking their lives for these types of cases?

Moralist Dec 19, 2014 05:03am

Do you guys see the symbolism here?

This happens right after the Peshawar attack and after Pakistan's COAS furnished evidence to the Afghan and ISAF authorities about the abettors of Peshawar attack on Afghanistan's soil.

I believe any substantial action by ISAF and Afghanistan will make Pakistan get the bale rejected. Or else it will be the same "tit for tat" thing.

For the ignorant people here, the term good Taliban and bad Taliban was coined by US and not Pakistan some six years ago referring to those with whom US had managed to negotiate and those with whom it couldnt.

The Afghanistan's Kunarr province is still the place where most of the lethal attacks inside Pak's space are planned and financed.

Amir Indian Dec 19, 2014 06:08am

Dear Pakistan - please declare all those Good Terrorists (according to Pakistan) like Lakhvi, Osama, Dawood Ibrahim, Tiger Menon "Saints" and terrorist groups as "Social Organization", so that UNSC who already declare them as "Terrorist" will learn something and avoid such huge mistakes in the future. and then these Good Terrorists will destroy Humanity from this Beautiful Earth.

Many people are asking why and here is what you need to ask is this in response to #indianswithPakistan a truthful sympathy shown by Indians, is this in response to Nawaz Sharif saying he will not discriminate between good or bad terrorist. is this in response to poor kids slaughtered couple of days

Did Jinnah created Pakistan for Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi,Hafeez Syed, Dawood Ibrahim, Osama bin laden and other places to hide and spread terrorism

Muhib Dec 19, 2014 06:44am

Just look at these guys. COAS goes to afghanistan with proof about fazalullah and asks afghani government to hand over the terrorist. While his own country protects, nourishes and supplies the terrorists of neighbours. What do they think of India, Afghanistan, Iran and China? Blind people?

Agilan Dec 19, 2014 06:49am

Thanks Pak for knocking us back to reality..!! Anyone still smoking the peace pipe? Take good rest, we need you, when the barbarians come to shoot innocents in India. We need you for those candle light vigils and to scream no action against Pak..!! Till then good rest liberals of India..!!

Mr Universe Dec 19, 2014 06:51am

Pakistan's National Security Advisor Sartaz Aziz was quoted as saying by BBC Urdu in an interview on November 17 that Pakistan should not attack militants who do not pose a direct threat to the country. Lakhvi's bail endorses that the policy of Pakistan is in line with their NSA's statement.

B Singh Dec 19, 2014 07:01am

@Shobit Gupta - Excellent post. Right on the money !!

abc Dec 19, 2014 07:09am

@Khan whether its raw or ISI the killing instruments remain same. Need for Introspection you.

Ammy Dec 19, 2014 07:22am

What I understand is Pakistan govt will be appealing in higher court against the bail.

More surprising is that , few people like Zak are still finding no fault in granting Lakhvi bail. Thank God even Pakistani citizens are not supporting such sentiments, visible by votes on his comments.

There is serious introspection within Pakistani intellectuals and General public. And comments similar to Zak would come from those corners who don't have remorse and sadness for what happened at Peshawar. The other possibility could be that such people may be a part of such organisations inflicting terror,and putting their agenda forward.

Satyajit Dec 19, 2014 07:29am

@Mr Universe He clarified later that Pakistan is targeting "all terrorists". Still it is not clear to Indians if "all terrorists" include Hafiz Saeed and such luminaries.

Guest Dec 19, 2014 07:33am

@Sameer Sheikh

Of course he is released so he can orchestrate a new attack on India during the Republic Day Celebrations or something like that. Shame on Pakistani Courts and its government and its political leaders. How long are Pakistani citizens going to suffer under these butchers?

kumar Dec 19, 2014 07:34am

@Zak you make no sense. How did UN come in this

Babu Dec 19, 2014 07:36am

Just when I thought the Pakistani establishment now finally sees reason and will be motivated to completely eradicate this cancer within forever, I am shocked again. This is like a murderer killing his own family members and then trying to blame and seek revenge on the neighbour's family for something that he did to his own people by himself. It can't get more twisted than that. I hope for goodness sake that someone tells me soon that this was a mistake and is being reversed. It is refreshing however, to see that the voice of reason prevails among most of the Pakistani brothers and sisters commenting here. I have faith in you - you must not be helpless but strongly express your revulsion of this decision to the authorities.

USN Dec 19, 2014 07:38am

Thank you Pakistan

sachin.g Dec 19, 2014 07:40am

What is this supidty being done by Navaz Sharif? what we had experinced in Peshavar is still alive in our minds. Do u want it happen agaiin with some other country or in some other school?

joe Dec 19, 2014 07:41am

should there be a another terror attack in India (God forbids) India will say Lakhvi, was let loose to execute it and there will be a situation which will get out of hand in both countries as a GOOD terrorist would have been free to carry out his charitable act..

Timur Lang Dec 19, 2014 07:49am

He needs to be freed otherwise he can't do normal terroristic activities inside prison.

I don't know how u feel but tears flowed down in our eyes when such cute kids are killed in such a way..very painful....hardly two days u guys back with ur old game whatever happens to Pakistan it is because of INDIA..grow up guys

Saif Dec 19, 2014 08:16am

This is our justice system. What the ....

rahul Dec 19, 2014 08:43am

@ibrahim "Pakistan is now Planning something big for vengeance" vengeance must be taken, but not by killing innocents but by going after the real culprits, releasing him from the prison shows that the pakistani authorities are going to continue to back killing innocents through the use of terror as state policy and don't want to learn from the mistakes

Mahesh Deshmukh Dec 19, 2014 08:51am

Why should India even pray for Pakistan...? No need... pakistan is not going to change... pakistan is not in mood to accept truth... Yesterday terrorist killed My people and today their, but pak politicians are not interested. What they all want is to be safe and others...whatever...

Krsna Dec 19, 2014 09:08am

@SG Khan - Karachi : We appreciate your views, brother. And wish for exactly the same. But what should we do till that happens? How do we prepare ourselves against terrorists who roam free in your land? I know one day all this will end, there will be peace and prosperity every where. I don't see it happening in our age, but for God's sake, plz help us in leaving a safer and better world for our children to live in. Let me admit it, we Indians can't do that without your help.

Narayan R Dec 19, 2014 09:53am

This is highly unfortunate but certainly not unexpected! Pakistan's process of indoctrination is almost complete and unless there is a strong counter narrative ( ideally from civil society) it will drag on to its inevitable gory end. Please be prepared for more strikes, bombings, attacks etc...

sam india Dec 19, 2014 10:36am

I think most of the Pakistani people like peace and prosperity every where, specially the Youth. But it is those sections of the Pakistani society who love violence and want to shed blood of innocent people. And it is those people who differentiate between GOOD Terrorist and BAD Terrorist. It is time to understand that, these people do not have any Religion, nor cast. So for God's sake do not create and patronize these Frankenstein.

Ehsan Ali Dec 19, 2014 10:45am

The timing of Lakhvi's release is significant, too. Those apologists who invoke the arcane and mysterious operation of the law cannot explain why the court held its session during the three day period of official mourning.

Ali Akhtar Dec 19, 2014 11:03am

And Nawaz Sherif says: "No distinction now between good and bad Taliban" !!!

Amol Dec 19, 2014 11:34am

As much as people keep tweeting #IndiawithPakistan, nothing is going to change with a system that is totally myopic in its approach to intolerance and extremism. It is unfortunate that the Pakistani authorities have not learnt yet from the ghastly Peshawar attacks. By letting off Lakhvi on bail, the judicial system has shown indifference to the victims of the Peshawar attack. It is only the Pakistani common man, that can now change this indifferent system.

Indian Dec 19, 2014 03:23pm

@Zak It is a false planted information by vested interest.

Moralist Dec 19, 2014 04:18pm

I condemn the loss of lives, I condemn the spilling of innocent blood everwhere, be it Nigeria, Iraq, Pakistan, Ukraine or anywhere.

But please do not give us these lectures on double standards when India, USA, KSA are also dictated by the same double standards.

Z khan Dec 19, 2014 06:28pm

@Waseem it is but the limit is 5 years.

Jasbir Singh Dec 19, 2014 06:58pm

The Peshawar massacre deeply hurted every humankind of world, including Indian. Really, me nd my family didn't took dinner on 16th Dec night, after viewing the bodies of cute angles. I pray God to bless angles parents and strengthen them internally, to come out of sadness.

Right now, pakistan shud move forward transparently nd eliminate all terrorist nd their all supporters from whole Pakistan including POK. It will be real tribute to that little angles.

Progress Dec 20, 2014 04:05am

Well, this just means that Peshawar massacre is not the last. It will happen again. What is the Paki govt to do? If it genuinely fights terrorism, then all its anti-India propaganda is exposed as a lie, and LeT will turn against them. If it doesn't do anything, then terrorists will eventually become so powerful that the govt becomes redundant. When the foundation of a country is religious extremism and hatred, Peshawar happens.

A. Hyder,Ph.D. Dec 20, 2014 05:39am

@Danish Haider Judges who let go terrorists are 'Honourable'? You do not know the meaning of this word, Sir !!

Agha Dec 20, 2014 07:46am

Indians granted bail to Swami Anand who is main accused of samjhota express blast but when Lakhvi was granted bail by court yesterday due to a technicality (Indians didn't let Pakistani judicial commission interview qassab),

Shahid Dec 20, 2014 09:35am

First of all, as a Pakistani, I am overwhelmed by the messages of support and sympathy from all over the world. In particular, the sympathies from the people of India have been appreciated in many households. There was also outrage in Pakistan on the bail of this Mumbai attack terrorist. His bail petitions have been rejected for 8 yrs. we are all feeling relieved today because due to great public pressure this mad man was arrested again today. We hope he is hanged

Khan, Islamabad Dec 20, 2014 03:36pm

In this country, unfortunately, those who should have been behind the bars are out of it so easily.

Most of the comments from Pakistani friends are so reassuring and encouraging. Thankyou Brothers and sisters of Pakistan.

LS Dec 20, 2014 09:18pm

@haq Please do, but first find proof of such involvement, no? Just because Mussharraf and Hafiz Saeed say something does it mean its true... Once you have substantial proof we will talk.. until then focus on the task at hand of finding proof or getting rid of the terrorists in your country. I would do a global good.

LS Dec 20, 2014 09:22pm

@Sudhanshu Swami: Actually Khan and his supporters (119) of them believe on what Musharraf and Hafiz Saeed say. They don't believe anyone else. Not even what just happened in front of their eyes.
