"The bounty is always set on people who are in hiding... There is no case against me in any American court," he maintained while terming the bounty absurd," The Express Tribune quoted Saeed, as saying during a press conference in Rawalpindi.

"America has gone blind in its enmity against Islam... After facing defeat in Afghanistan, it has resorted to such acts. This shows that the Difa-e-Pakistan Council (DPC) has succeeded in its campaign," he added.

Meanwhile, Jamiat-e-Ulema Islam chief Maulana Samiul Haq announced that Saeed, according to the law, is ready to present himself before any court.

"The Difa-e-Pakistan Council, to condemn the US bounty, announces of holding a countrywide protest on Friday," said Haq.
