ISLAMABAD: Hafiz Saeed has been released from house arrest, his religious charity said on Friday.
“He is free, we are happy. Thank God there is no more restriction,” Nadeem Awan, a spokesman for charity Jamaat-ud-Dawa, told Reuters.
He has been under house arrest since January this year.
A court on Wednesday ordered an end to his house arrest.
Habibullah Salafi, another JuD official, said supporters were arriving at Saeed’s house to celebrate ahead of Friday prayers.
“Today, he will lead Friday prayers at All Qadsia,” Salafi added, referring to the headquarters of the JuD.
