Islamabad: Most wanted terrorist Hafiz Saeed has decided to launch his own political party. According to reports from across the border, Hafiz Saeed has decided to rename his terror outfit Jamaat ud Dawah as the Milli Muslim League Pakistan.
Hafiz Saeed has planned to register the Milli Muslim League Pakistan as a political party with the Election Commission of Pakistan.
The development assumes significance in the wake of the ouster of Nawaz Sharif as the Prime Minister of Pakistan after a Supreme Court order. On the other hand, Hafiz Saeed is known to have close relations with the Pakistani Army and the ISI.
Incidentally, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf chief Imran Khan – the most vocal opponent of Nawaz Sharif – also finds himself in soup after a female party colleague accused him of sending obscene messages to women workers and leaders.
Earlier this week, the Pakisan’s Punjab government extended the house arrest of Jamaat ud Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Mohammad Saeed for two more months.
Hafiz Saeed has been placed under house arrest since January 31, when he was initially interned for 90 days. His house arrest was subsequently extended for another three months which expired on July 27. But, now the provincial government has extended the curbs on his movement for another two months.
Hafiz Saeed is accused of masterminding several terror strikes in India including the Mumbai 26/11 attacks and fomenting violence in Jammu and Kashmir.
