Hafiz Mohammad Saeed to make Foray in Politics

Islamabad: Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief and mastermind of the Mumbai attacks, terrorist Hafiz Mohammad Saeed has decided to join politics. Hafiz Saeed has petitioned the political party for the name of 'Milli Muslim League' in the Pakistan Election Commission by its organization Jamaat-ud-Dawa. Media reports say that Saeed wants to launch his party in a function in Lahore on the Independence Day of Pakistan.

Hafiz Saeed has asked to form his political party at a time when Pakistan is going through a period of political upheaval. In the Panam case, Nawaz Sharif has resigned as the Prime Minister of Pakistan. Hafiz is looking at this opportunity as the right time to get into politics. Saeed is said to have good penetration in ISI and the army of Pakistan's intelligence agency. In such a situation, if he gets permission to form a party, then he will try to make his entry into Pakistan's politics.

Detention of Hafeez
In Pakistan, officials in Punjab province recently extended the period of detention of mastermind Hafiz Saeed for the Mumbai terror attacks to two more months. Officials have cited this step to keep up the public order. Jamaat-ud-Dawa Chief Saeed is detained since January 31. In April his custody period was extended for three more months.

Saeed was detained in January
On January 31, the Punjab government had taken Saeed and his four close associates Abdullah Ubaid, Malik Zafar Iqbal, Abdul Rehman Abid and Kazi Asif Hussain under the Anti-Terrorism Act 1997. Saeed's custody period has been extended under the Punjab Maintenance of Public Order.

Notification was extended

In a notification issued on 28th July last year, the Home Department of the Punjab Government said that on the recommendation of the Federal Home Ministry Saeed's custody period is extended for another 60 days. According to the notification, the period of custody of Saeed and four others was ending on July 27.
