New Delhi, June 14, News24 Bureau: Hafiz Saeed-linked Milli Muslim League has decided to use the platform of a little known party to contest the upcoming general election, a day after Pakistan's poll panel rejected for a second time an application by the MML, an offshoot of the Mumbai attack mastermind's banned Jamat-ud-Dawah, to register it as a political party. Around 200 candidates backed by the MML will contest the July 25 election under the banner of the Allah-o-Akbar Tehreek (AAT), which is already registered with the Election Commission of Pakistan, the Express Tribune reported. The decision was taken after the ECP again dismissed the MML's application for registration yesterday.
This is a trick to avoid all restrictions imposed on him and his outfit. The banned outfit cannot avail any grant and other financial assistance from the state. It remains to be seen if this becomes possible, as if it does, it will be a mockery of Democracy.
