A Pakistani court has ordered the release of the leader of an Islamic charity suspected of being a front for a group accused of the Mumbai attacks.

A court ruled there was no reason to hold Jamaat-ud-Dawa founder Hafiz Mohammad Saeed under house arrest.

India accuses Jamaat-ud-Dawa of being a front for Lashkar-e-Taiba, the group it says was behind the attacks. Mr Saeed is also a founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba.

The UN added Mr Saeed to a terrorist watch list after the Mumbai attacks.

A spokesman for Jamaat-ud-Dawa told the BBC that they were always confident that Mr Saeed would be vindicated.

"Our stand is clear. We have nothing to do with militancy or militants," he said.

But even though the court had ordered his release, the spokesman advised caution as to exactly when and how this might happen.

"I don't think the government is going to let it go so easily, and even if they do release Hafiz Sahib, they can always re-arrest him on some other concocted charge," he said.

Mr Saeed's release is likely to alarm the United States and India.

This is not the first time that Mr Saeed has been placed under house arrest and subsequently released following militant attacks in India. Mr Saeed was briefly arrested in 2006 following attacks in India.

The BBC's Chris Morris in Islamabad says that India is likely to express its concern about Pakistan's commitment to tackling militancy. But, he adds, that Pakistan would point out that the decision to release Mr Saeed was made by an independent court.

Indeed, a very bad example of how Pakistan's judiciary is undermined by the ISI and its radical Islamists. No wonder that their country is declining.

Inside Job

9/11 and 7/7 are confirmed inside jobs.Madrid was most probably an inside job.It seems likely that
Mumbai 26/11 was also an inside job.Respected journalist Amaresh Mishra has suggested as much.
Top terrorist ? George W Bush.

Petera, you liar of a whole. No Indian government would have ordered such a cruel thing. And as far as Amaresh Mishra is concerned he is a nut just like Zaid Hamid across the border.

No, all jobs were done outside. I don't know of any terrorist who blew himself up inside (his house).

I would like them to do more inside jobs.
