Hafiz Saeed

South and Central Asia


Rewards for Justice is offering a reward of up to $10 million for information on Hafiz Saeed, the founder and leader of Lashkar-e Tayyiba (LeT), a U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO). Saeed participated in the planning of the 4-day-long terrorist assault on Mumbai, India in November 2008 that left 166 individuals dead, including six Americans.

In 2020, a Pakistani anti-terrorism court convicted Saeed on multiple counts of terrorism financing and sentenced him to prison. The United States continues to seek information on Saeed because the Pakistani judicial system has released convicted LeT leaders and operatives in the past. 

On May 27, 2008, the U.S. Department of the Treasury designated Saeed as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist pursuant to Executive Order 13224, as amended. As a result of this designation, among other consequences, all property, and interests in property, of Saeed that are subject to U.S. jurisdiction are blocked, and U.S. persons are generally prohibited from engaging in any transactions with Saeed. In addition, it is a crime to knowingly provide, or attempt or conspire to provide, material support or resources to the FTO LeT. On December 10, 2008, Saeed was listed at the United Nations 1267/1989 al-Qa’ida Sanctions Committee as an individual associated with the al-Qa’ida terrorist organization and, thus, subject to international sanctions.
