  • Palestine envoy attends Hafiz Saeed's rally in Pakistan

The envoy's participation in the rally "in the presence of individuals accused of supporting terrorism is an unintended mistake, but not justified", it said. The countries disregarded Trump's threat to cut aid to the countries that voted for the resolution.

India had reacted sharply on Friday after the picture of Palestinian Ambassador to Pakistan attending a rally organised by JuD chief and mastermind of Mumbai terror attack Hafiz Saeed surfaced.

The development comes a week after India voted for a UNGA resolution against the USA decision to recognise Jerusalem as the Israeli capital. Saeed used the rally to call for an "Islamic summit" to defend Jerusalem from Israel. Jamaat-ud-Dawa is thought to be a front for militant group Lashker-e-Taiba, which is engaged with Indian troops in the disputed region of Kashmir.

Saeed is designated as a global terrorist by the United Nations and is accused as the mastermind of the Mumbai 26/11 attacks that claimed 166 lives. Ministry of External Affairs said Palestine has regretted the meet.

This may not be the case.

According to the External Affairs Ministry statement, Palestine has also conveyed that it "highly values its relationship with India and stands with us in the war against terrorism, and will not engage with those who commit acts of terror against India".

Photos of the the Palestinian envoy with Saeed and addressing the rally organised by the Difa-e-Pakistan Council at Liaqat Bagh had gone viral on social media on Friday.

In New Delhi, Palestine's envoy Adnan Abu Alhaijaa said that there were some politicians and parliamentarians attending the event. More than 50 speakers addressed the rally, including Hafiz Saeed. In fact, when Saeed spoke, he asked people around him who he was... and then the Ambassador gave his own speech and left the stage.

But the photograph of Walid Abu Ali exchanging words with Hafiz Saeed in all seriousness at the stage contradicts Alhaijaa's claim.

Difa-e-Pakistan (Defence of Pakistan) Council (DPC) is an alliance of Islamist groups in Pakistan, including Saeed's outfit.

In 2002, Pakistan banned Lashkar-e-Taiba as a "terrorist" organisation, and since 2008, authorities say they have been abiding by United Nations sanctions. Omar Barghouti, co-founder of the Palestinian-led Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, has put out a statement strongly condemning his participation.

Sami-ul Haq has served as a Senate member of Pakistan and launched a political party to contest 2013 general elections. India, in a statement, said the meeting with worldwide terrorists was unacceptable. Walid Abu Ali was said to be a popular envoy in the diplomatic circles in Pakistan. In early December, he had met Pakistan's Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa at the Pakistan Army headquarters in Rawalpindi.
