Earlier, the Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed has warned of a countrywide protest in Pakistan by his outfit if the Home Minister arrives in Islamabad to attend the SAARC ministerial conference. He accused Rajnath Singh of being "responsible for the killings of innocent Kashmiris”.

"I want to ask the Pakistani government will it add insult to injury to the wounds of Kashmiris by welcoming Rajnath who is responsible for the killings of innocent Kashmiris," he said in a statement.
