Religious parties announce restoration of Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal”

Six religious political parties in Pakistan have agreed to restore the former alliance of Muttahida Majlis-i-Amal (MMA) ahead of next year's general election, the chief of Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan, a major political party, said on Friday.

The parties in the MMA represent all the four schools of thought Brelvi, Deobandi, Ahle Hadith and Shia.

The parties heads chose to contact other religious parties to convince them to join the alliance.

Qazi Hussain Ahmad, the late and former chief of Jamaat-e-Islami, formed the Muttahida Majlis-i-Amal in 2002, in opposition to the then President Pervez Musharraf's policies to support the US war in Afghanistan.

The announcement follows a meeting attended by leaders of constituent parties including Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam head Maulana Fazlur Rehman, Jamiat Ulema-i-Pakistan chief Pir Ijaz Hashmi, JI emir Sirajul Haq and leaders of three other parties.

The leaders of the parties expressed hope that under the MMA platform they will perform well in the 2018 elections.

He said a consensus on the restoration of the MMA was achieved in the light of recommendations presented at the meeting and they would hold a meeting of at the residence of Shah Owais Noorani in Karachi in the mid of December.

Six top religious parties on Thursday announced the revival of the most successful political alliance of religious parties in the country's history, the Muttahida Majlis Amal (MMA) which swept 2002 polls in KP and became the chief opposition party in the National Assembly but had remained defunct for nearly 10 years.

The alliance consolidated its position during the general elections in Pakistan held in 2002 during the rule of Pervez Musharraf.
