Hafiz Saeed who has a $10 million bounty on his head for allegedly masterminding the Nov 2008 attacks in Mumbai thrilled audiences in packed mosques in towns round this united states by means of calling for a return to the times whilst Muslims waged jihad and infidels paid them protection money.Hafiz Saeed the founding father of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) has all the time denied involvement within the Mumbai carnage.
