New Delhi, August 4: The Mumbai 26/11 attacks mastermind Hafiz Mohammad Saeed is mulling to try hands in politics and decided to launch its new party Milli Muslim League.
Terrorist outfit Jamaat ud Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Mohammad Saeed who is under house arrest since January 31 has planned to register the Milli Muslim League Pakistan as a political party with the Election Commission of Pakistan.
The development comes at the time when Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif stepped down after a Supreme Court order in Panam papers case. On the other hand, Hafiz Saeed is known to have close links with the Pakistani Army and the ISI.
Incidentally, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf chief Imran Khan – the most vocal opponent of Nawaz Sharif – also in controversy 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 attacks in India including the Mumbai 26/11 attacks and fomenting violence in Jammu and Kashmir.
