Hafiz Saeed’s JuD seeking political space, launches 'Milli Muslim League'
Saifullah Khalid, a religious scholar and longtime official of the group, is president of the newly-formed Milli Muslim League party. He told reporters in Islamabad that his party will work to make Pakistan “a real Islamic and welfare state” and that it is ready to cooperate with like-minded parties.
Tabish Qayoum, a JuD activist who will work as spokesman for Milli Muslim League, said the group had filed registration papers for a new party with Pakistan’s electoral commission.
“It is now the need of the hour to get your message to the grassroots,” Qayoum told the international news agency.
Qayoum said Hafiz Saeed, who missed the launch event as he remains under house arrest in Lahore, and other senior JuD figures are unlikely to be involved in the new party that will adhere to JuD’s ideology.
“We demand an immediate release of Hafiz Saeed. Once he is released we will seek his guidance and ask what role he wants in this political party,” said party chief Khalid.
“The making of a party indicates the need of JuD to hide itself further so to avoid criticism,” Siddiqa said.
