Blacklisted Pakistani terrorist Abdul Rehman Makki releases video from jail; what he said about Osama?

Published Date:

Abdul Rehman Makki, the Pakistan-based deputy leader of the terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), posted a video from the Kot Lakhpat Jail in Lahore on Thursday, rejecting any links to al-Qaeda or the Islamic State.

However, Makki, the brother-in-law of Mumbai terror attack mastermind and Jamat-ud-Dawa (JuD) leader Hafiz Saeed, made no mention of the 26/11 attack, which murdered 166 people.

Makki, 68, was added to the UN Security Council’s 1267 ISIL (Da’esh) and Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee’s list of terrorists on Monday as a result of years of work by India and its allies. He is now subject to an asset freeze, a travel ban, and an arms embargo.

“The grounds for my listing, I believe, are founded on heresy and misinformation by the Indian government. I never met Osama Bin Laden, Ayman Al-Zawahiri, or Abdullah Azam, as certain propaganda claims claimed “Makki stated.

He has been imprisoned since 2019, serving numerous terms in terror finance cases alongside Saeed and other prominent LeT and JuD leaders.

He stated that the attitudes and acts of Al-Qaeda and ISIS are diametrically opposed to his beliefs.

“I condemn all forms of terrorism and violence done by such organisations. I support the Pakistani government’s primary position on Kashmir “He stated.

He regretted the United Nation security Council’s decision to enlist him without providing him a fair chance to reply to allegations or hear his point of view.

“There was no due process followed or information supplied on these listings,” Makki stated.

He disputed allegations that he met Al-Qaeda leaders or Afghan commanders while working as a faculty member at Islamic University Islamabad in the 1980s.

He claimed that he had never studied or taught at an Islamic institution and that he had never met Abdullah Azam, Ayman Al Zawahiri, or Bin Laden.
