Pak not taking required action against Hafiz Saeed: MEA

'Islamabad's true face exposed': India slams Pakistan on Hafiz Saeed's political entry

MML chief Saifullah Khalid, a close aide of Saeed, had contended in the Islamabad high court that there were no grounds for the Election Commission not to register the party as there were no FIRs against any of its leaders. However, instant developments coming out of Pakistan seem to be as an attempt by the establishment to mainstream him and his system as a political party.

While addressing mediapersons in the national capital, Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said Pakistan is under global obligation to initiate action against the terror accused.

Taking a stern view of the developments taking place in Pakistan, MEA spokesperson today said that India's concerns of inaction against Saeed have been echoed by the entire worldwide community as well.

The Islamabad High Court on Thursday issued an order to the election commission here to allow the registration of the Milli Muslim League (MML), the political party created by 26/11 mastermind and one of the world's most wanted terrorist Hafiz Saeed.

Kumar further said that the true face of Hafiz Saeed and Pakistan is for all to see.

However, the apex court stressed that the state flag should not dishonour the national flag and should be hoisted below it. The setting up of the panel resulted in a controversy with BJP accusing Congress of subverting the national flag.

The JuD chief believed that India was forcing the Pakistan government to abandon the Kashmir cause "which is not possible".

Last month, an intergovernmental money-laundering watchdog, Financial Action Task Force (FATF), put Pakistan on a grey list for its continued support to terror groups such as those run by Saeed. The candidate, Sheikh Yaqoob, who has been designated a terrorist by the U.S., bagged more votes than candidates from established parties such as the Pakistan People's Party.

Last month, Pakistani authorities confirmed that the country was going back on the "grey list" of the FATF, after a span of almost four years.

In the a year ago, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) had canceled the application for registering the Milli Muslim League.
