Lahore, Apr 6(ANI): The Difa-i-Pakistan Council (DPC) has declared that the protection of Jamaat- ud- Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed and his brother - in -law Abdul Rehman Makki is the responsibility of the Pakistan Government because "[they] are citizens of Pakistan".

The DPC leaders also vowed to continue the activities of the council according to schedule, "regardless of the bounty" imposed on Jamaat- ud Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed.
