He also answered "yes" on being asked if he likes Saeed, adding, "I have met him".

Mr Abdullah's father and NC president Farooq Abdullah also lashed out at Gen. Musharraf, who had earlier told ARY News that he was the "biggest supporter" of the LeT and its co-founder and the chief or amir of Jama'at-ud-Da'wah Hafiz Saeed.

Hitting out at General Pervez Musharraf for asserting support for Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah said the former Pakistan president will say anything to find a foothold in Pakistan.

"The reason that I like these organizations is that I have always been in favour of action in Kashmir and pressuring the Indian army there". Lashkar-e-Taiba are involved in Kashmir but in Kashmir it is between us and India. "They (LeT) are the biggest force, India got them declared as terrorists by partnering with USA". "This is the biggest force and they have been declared terrorists by India and the USA jointly", Musharraf said, explaining his stance.

The terrorist's Lahore-based attorney has said that he has filed a petition in the United Nations seeking removal of his name from the list of designated terrorists on the ground that none of the allegations against him has been proved in Pakistani courts. And the decision to ban the organisation was taken by the Musharraf government only.

Online boom may see Cyber Monday top Black Friday
Cyber Monday is expected to have beaten Black Friday for the first time to become Britain's biggest shopping day of the year. The SPDR S&P Retail exchange-traded fund ( XRT ) traded 0.3 percent higher, after rising as much as 1.5 percent.

The US government has already warned Pakistan of "repercussions" on US-Pak ties if Hafiz Saeed is not re-arrested.

Following his release, the US had asked Pakistan to re-arrest Saeed, who has been designated a terrorist by the US Justice Department. In his petition, Saeed contended that there is no evidence to back the allegation against him.

NEWLY freed Pakistani Isla-mist Hafiz Saeed, who has a $10 million U.S. bounty on his head, spoke at last Friday's (24) prayers in a mosque in Lahore after being freed from house arrest by a court that said there was no evidence to hold him. A request to delist a person from the list of terrorists is considered by an independent ombudsperson, who then gives a recommendation to the UN Security Council. Saeed was subjected to freezing of assets, travel band and arms embargo.

Previously, Saeed said Kashmiri commander Abdul Majid was martyred by using illegal weapons.
