Terrorist From 26/11 Mumbai Attack Released On Bail By Pakistani Court

    On Thursday, Zaki ur Rehman Lakhvi, the LeT commander who played a part in one of the worst terror attacks to ever hit Mumbai, was released on bail.

    Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) commander Zaki ur Rehman Lakhvi, who was charged with his involvement in the Mumbai 26/11 terror attacks in which 166 people lost their lives, was granted bail on Thursday by a Pakistani anti-terrorism court.

    There are seven Pakistanis that are facing conviction in relation to the Mumbai terror attacks.

    TOI reports the names of these men are LeT operations commander Lakhvi, Abdul Wajid, Mazhar Iqbal, Sadiq, Shahid Jameel Riaz, Jamil Ahmed and Younas Anjum. They were all arrested in 2009 and have been charged with aiding, abetting, financing and participating in the execution of one of the biggest terror attacks Mumbai has ever seen.

    Pakistan has also formally acknowledged that the planning of the attacks took place in Pakistan itself, according to TOI.

    People have taken to Twitter to voice their opposition of Lakhvi being released on bail.

    @SaraNaveed They did indeed :( Still not out of the shock of #Peshawar and they have released #Lakhvi. What are they thinking >.<

    While giving bail to #Lakhvi , Pakistan should have considered that #LeT is the elder brother of #Tehrik-i-Taliban.

    Indian Home Minister @BJPRajnathSingh says hope Pakistan govt will appeal in a higher court so that Zakiur Rehman #Lakhvi bail is cancelled

    #Lakhvi the Mastermind behind 26/11 #mumbaiattacks gets bail by Pakistan court, Pak's gift to India for standing by them in #PeshawarAttack

    Enough has been lost. Whether years ago or three days ago. #Lakhvi should not be released on bail.

    Pakistan has shown how much they care and what they stand for by releasing #Lakhvi a day after massacre of school children #PeshawarAttack

    Bail to 26/11 accused Lakhavi is shocking n a setback to fight against terrorism.
