Lahore: Mumbai attack mastermind and Jamaat-ud-Dawah chief Hafiz Saeed on Thursday said ousted Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif had committed "treason" by seeking friendship with India and ignoring the "Kashmir cause", hours after his release from house arrest.

Saeed gave an hour-long Friday sermon at the JuD headquarters here, for which a large number of JuD activists had gathered at the Jamia Masjid Al-Qadsia at Chauburji here.

After Friday prayers, the charged workersgreeted Saeed on his release and renewed their pledge for "Kashmir Jihad". Saeed in his speech alsotargeted the Pakistani government for "taking dictation from foreign masters" and spoke of "Indian atrocities" in Kashmir.

He told his supporters the "reasons" behind his10-month detention, and also as to why Sharif was ousted as prime minister.

"Ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif has been punished for forsaking Kashmiris. Sharif is ousted from the prime minister house because he committed treason with Kashmiris. He wanted friendship with India and completely ignored the Kashmir cause," he said and warned the PML-N government not to bow before the international community for loans.

"The rulers must not take dictation from the US and other countries and take its own decisions," he said. Saeed walked from house arrest as a free man in the early hours of today after the Pakistan government decided against detaining him further in any case.

He had been under detention since January this year. The JuD head, who carries a bounty of USD 10 million announced by the US for his role in terror activities, reiterated that he was detained for raising his voice for the Kashmiri people.

He said Pakistan should not hold peace dialogue with India till it withdraws its army from Kashmir. He said he would continue fighting for Kashmiris till they get freedom.

Saeed reiterated that the US, on India's request, pressured Pakistan to detain him.
