Islamabad, August 4: The Mumbai attacks mastermind Hafiz Muhammad Saeed has reportedly decided to launch his own political party by renaming his terror outfit 'JuD' as 'Milli Muslim League Pakistan' on Pakistan's Independence Day at a function in Lahore on 14th August.
Hafiz Saeed has been placed under house arrest since January 31, when he was initially interned for 90 days. His house arrest was subsequently extended for another three months which expired on July 27. But, now the provincial government has extended the curbs on his movement for another two months.
Pakistan claims to have banned Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), but following the attack on the Indian Parliament in 2001, it re-emerged as Jamaat-ud Dawa (JuD). The United Nations has recognised JuD as a political front of Lashkar.
