Islamabad (IANS): Protests in Pakistan demanding the release of India-wanted militant leader Hafiz Saeed escalated on Wednesday as Syed Salahuddin, Hizb-ul Mujhadeen chief, called upon Islamabad to reverse its detention order, which it termed "painful and cowardly".

Salahuddin, chairman of United Jihad Council (UJC), said in a statement: "Hafiz Mohammad Saeed has not only been urging the international community to break its criminal silence on Kashmir, but he has also been exposing the atrocities of India's imperialistic regime."

In one such demonstration on Wednesday, demonstrators held an effigy, on which portraits of US President Donald Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and flags of the US and India were affixed.

The effigy and a banner with portraits of the duo and flags of both countries were torched afterwards.
