US designated Milli Muslim League as a Foreign Terrorist Organisation.
Within few days after the Pakistan Election Commission positively waved Hafiz Saeed by submitting all clearance documents to the Interior Ministry of Pakistan for registering Milli Muslim League as a political party, the US State Department had declared the MML as a Foreign Terrorist Organisation.
