After the supreme court of Pakistan allowed the Hafiz Saed’s political party Mili Muslim League to openly propagate its agenda and take part in general elections of Pakistan.
The party has started to campaign for extending its foothold in Pakistan. Breaking the stereotype of being considered to be the Muslim oriented party, the Milli Muslim League (MML) held a convention at Nankana Sahib, the birthplace of Sikhism founder Guru Nanak Dev.
MML is reportedly fielding candidates in most constituencies, despite its Muslim leaning image.
The party which was formed in August last year is trying to hard to pull off the major chunk of the populace to back them.
Earlier, MML candidates Yaqoob Sheikh and Liaqat Khan contested by-elections in Lahore and Peshawar and diverted votes from the ruling PML-N.
Saeed has also disclosed his plans to contest the 2018 general elections.
Interestingly Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (PSGPC) is now backing the party. PSGPC General Secretary Gopal Singh Chawla is known to share close ties with Saeed since before; he has often posted their pictures together on social media.
With Chawla’s help, the MML convention was held at Nankana Sahib Saturday, attended by Saeed and MML-president Saifullah Khalid.
The event was the ground for many anti-India comments.
“Sikhs are a brave nation but atrocities are being committed against it in India,” Saeed said.
