Pak opposes regd of Hafiz Saeed’s political party; cited these reasons
Could it be that Pakistan appears to be seen doing something on issue of terrorism.
Coz the Pakistan government has requested a court in Islamabad to not consider Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed-backed Milli Muslim League’s plea on registration as a political party.
The government has gone ahead and asserted that group would breed violence and extremism in politics.
Saeed earlier this month had confirmed that his organisation Jammat-ud-Dawah (JuD) would contest the 2018 general elections under the banner of the Milli Muslim League (MML).
The MML had challenged the Election Commission of Pakistan’s order on October 11 that had declined its registration as a political party.
The interior ministry, in its written reply submitted to the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on the MML’s petition, said that it opposed the group’s registration as a political party as the group was an offshoot of proscribed entities. >
