India on Monday called for an internationally mandated action against Pakistan-based terrorist leader Hafiz Saeed, the mastermind of the 2008 Mumbai terror attack.

“Effective action mandated internationally against him and his terrorist organisation is a logical first step in bringing justice and in ridding our region of the twin menaces of terrorism and violent extremism,” the External Affairs Ministry said.

Over two weeks after placing Saeed under house arrest, Pakistan on Saturday included the Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief’s name in the Fourth Schedule of the Anti-Terrorism Act.

The JuD chief’s name has also been put on the exit control list which bars him from leaving Pakistan.

Saeed and four other men were placed under house arrest on January 30 in Lahore. The JuD chief is under UN sanction and carries a bounty of $10 million
