New Delhi: India has expressed deep concerns over Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) being rebranded and launched as a political outfit called Milli Muslim League Pakistan.

JuD chief Hafiz Saeed is currently under house arrest in Lahore, but his outfit reportedly continues to operate with impunity and is now expected to register with the Election Commission. Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Gopal Baglay said, “It is ironic that Hafiz Saeed is trying to cover his blood-stained hands with ballot ink. We are concerned about this.”

There has been a strong buzz in Pakistan with regards to this development. It is now learnt that JuD, which acted as a front for the banned dreaded terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba, will relaunch as a political party on August 14. Three years ago, the U.S. State Department had named JuD a foreign terrorist organisation, freezing its assets under US jurisdiction.

India reminded the world that the 2008 Mumbai terror attack was masterminded by Hafiz Saeed and his outfit LeT, responsible for the killing of 166 people, including many foreign nationals. Gopal Baglay said, “After killing with bullets, does he want to hide behind the ballot?”

In the aftermath of the dastardly Mumbai attack, Pakistan had put Saeed, as he is today, under house arrest. But six months later, in June 2009, he was released.

In fact, Saeed’s house arrest that came again in January this year was extended only two days ago for another two months. The Punjab, Pakistan administration said it was to maintain public order. With the current political flux in Pakistan after the dismissal of Nawaz Sharif as the Prime Minister, the information of JuD registering as a political party gains even greater significance.
