Pakistan’s prohibited terrorist outfit Jamaat-ud-Dawa introduced a political party on Monday. The decision took place several days after officials enlarged Mumbai attacks accused Hafiz Saeed’s “close arrest” for about two months dreading caution to people’s demand.
Saifullah Khalid, intimately connected to Saeed, declared the creation of ‘Milli Muslim League’ in Islamabad after weeks of campaign in Lahore.
“We would quickly lodge application with Election Commission of Pakistan for its registration,” Khalid stated.
Khalid stated that the latest party will struggle to make Pakistan a “authentic Islamic state” and ordered the quick discharge of Saeed, who is detained ever since January.
The party officials stated, appear as an attempt to form a party which is suitable to fair Pakistanis.
But, there seems to be less possibility of electoral achievement for religious parties in Pakistan as the allocation of such political outfits have slowly decreased in parliament.
At present, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazal of Maulan Fazlur Rehman party in Pakistan is such a big political party containing several elected members in the National Assembly, while the Jamaat- e-Islami involves half a dozen in the 342-member house.
On July 28, a statement was given by the Punjab government’s Home Department that stated “On the suggestion of the federal interior ministry, the imprisonment term of Hafiz Saeed has been extended for more than 60 days.”
The prison term of Hafiz Saaed and others ended on July 27 following his house arrest was extended for 90 days.
Prior, he was at first put under house captured on January 31.
The JuD is accepted to be a front for Lashkar-e-Taiba, the gathering behind the 2008 destructive assaults in Mumbai in which 166 individuals were murdered by 10 psychological militants who originated from Pakistan.
