ISLAMABAD - Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA) is most likely to be restored today (Thursday), after couple of years, sans the participation of one of its major component Jamaat-e-Islami (JI).The erstwhile components of MMA, excluding Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), after thorough deliberation to restore its strength on political arena are all set to announce its restoration today (Thursday), sources in JUI-F shared with TheNation. The revival of MMA, an electoral platform of around six religi-political parties was formed in 2002 and finally collapsed in 2005 owing to various political differences.Main religio-political parties have planned to deliberate its reformation in Islamabad, therefore, all partners of splinter group sans Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) will gather at the residence of Jamiat Ulema-e-Pakistan (JUP) leader to announce the restoration of MMA, said sources.When contacted, senior JUI-F leader/former leader of opposition in Senate Ghafor Haideri confirmed that former religious component would meet to deliberate restoration of MMA in Islamabad today (Thursday).”Albeit all the members are in contact yet formally all the previous partners were invited to participate in the meeting,” JUI-F leader said.To a question about Jamaat-e-Islami (JI)’s participation, he said that other religious parties had contacted JI leaders to be part of the MMA. “Its up to them to participate it or not. Come what may, now MMA will be restored,” he maintained. He further said these religious parties contacted the main members JI including Munawar Hassan and Liaqat Baloch for this purpose.To yet another question, he said that if the religio political group could not reunite today (Thursday) than it would definitely be restored in the next meeting.The participation of JUI-F, Jamiat Ulema-e-Pakistan (JUP), Markazi Jamiat Ahl-e-Hadith, Tehreek-e-Jafria is confirmed to participate in the crucial meeting, he said, adding that the participation of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) is still not sure despite the formal invitation.Sources said that all the conflicted matters among the religio-political and future strategies would come under discussion. The meeting may also discuss bone of contention between JUI-F and JI in the meting.It is relevant to mention here that that the major reasons behind split of MMA is largely considered reservations between the two major components Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F). Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) leaders have even remarked that Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) is in contact with PML-N and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) so ball is in their court to decide their final affiliation.Whereas, JI in its arguments have certain times raised objection if JUI-F had decided to sit on Opposition benches in Centre, why the same decision was not practiced in Balochistan. JI also has also some reservations from its former coalition partners for holding the Chairmanship of Kashmir Committee, as they consider this slot has been given with the consent of PPP-led government. It would not be out of place to mention here that JUI-F had opted to sit on Opposition benches because the former Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani sacked Azam Swati from the slot of Federal Minister for Science and Technology on alleged Haj scam. The religio political parties was formed in 2002 to electorally challenge the Pakistan Parliament’s incumbent parties. The MMA garnered the second-largest majority in the National Assembly Majlis-e-Shoora with 58 out of 342 seats, as well as a provincial majority in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and a provincial minority in Sindh and Balochistan. But later, in 2005, due to difference the parties separated and could not reunited till now.
